A&D Eats: The Tale of Two Afternoon Teas at Two Shangri-Las

BOS and I went on a long overdue date two weeks ago. I won an afternoon tea set in a giveaway and I've been saving it for a special occasion. It was BOS's birthday a few days before but only got the chance to celebrate that weekend. 

Here's the funny story that made our afternoon schedule out of whack, when I joined the giveaway on IG, it said the afternoon tea was in Makati Shangri-la so when I told them I wanted to redeem my prize, I was so excited that I didn't read their confirmation message that our afternoon tea was booked in Edsa Shangri-la's Lobby Lounge and we were already having tea at Makati Shangri-la! Haha!
BOS and I each ordered a set but we had coffee instead of tea. Ang takaw lang heehee! I had the Classic High Tea (Php650) while BOS had the Lobby Lounge Special (Php700).
Coffee, milk and sugar balls. So Sushal!
Takaw mode, 2 sets were more than enough for the two us, we were able to take home pastries for the kids!

While we were having our afternoon tea, I tried cancelling our reservation but since it can't be cancelled anymore or moved to another date, so after filling our stomachs at Makati Shangri-la, off we went to Edsa Shangri-la to fill our stomachs more. Heehee!
It was so traffic in Edsa that Saturday! Well, kelan ba hinde? Hindi lang talaga kami dumadaan dun. Hehe! Good thing we made it before 6PM.
And this time we ordered Oolong Tea. One pot was bitin for the two of us so we had to order another pot.
Everything was pre-ordered for us already. Our pastries were served in this bird cage like holder. Aylavet!
BOS and I didn't eat much. We were so full from earlier, inantok na ako! Haha! Plus we were missing the kids na so we just took home our leftovers.

But before going home, we went to the mall at the back and bought the kids their art supplies. It has been a while since BOS and I had a date, just the two of us, without the kids. It was nice, to be able to just talk with my husband, talk about our kitchen renovation and plan our next family trip, because I only see on weekends because of his work! So BOS, we should date more often! You wannet, too! Heehee!
