DESIGNER BLOOMS in Molito, Alabang


Designer’s Bloom – Molito in Alabang

“Sometimes, having coffee with your best friend, is all the therapy you need.”

During the 90s, Designer blooms is a well-known flower shop. They have their own farm in Tagaytay and a warehouse in Alabang. Luckily, I experienced getting one of theirs. Long-stemmed roses specifically. DB is one of the pioneers until new shops come and go and they remained steadfast in the business. Theirs is for any occasion.

Who would believe that their flower shop is cum coffee shop though it didn’t surprised me upon knowing that they ventured into Food & Beverage already. A special niche created primarily targeting those whose initial need are flowers. And while waiting for the ordered product to be finished. It was good to know that guests can have some pasta or pastries or beverages like tea and coffee. My foodie buddy wouldn’t believe me that they have a coffee shop already till I brought her to their branch just at the back of the block where Hermanos is.

It was strategic that most of their walls are of clear glass since it allows them to entice guests to enter the place that is if you have an awesome interiors.

As we enter, we already saw the flowers on the right side of the restaurant and we both wondered if the scent is all over the place. Though most of the flowers are contained in a tiny room with an ACU in a lower temperature than the usual. And indeed, the place exudes an intriguing scent. Scent of the flowers and scent of whatever they have baked or prepared for the day is a mixture of something rustic and sweet. Our fear to try this for the first time is that the food might taste like flower since it is the primary scent thats lingering all over the place. I do not want be munching on petals.

Feathers on their hat!

Surprisingly, its not. Since we’re still loaded with that Mexican treat, we just got ourselves coffee and a portion of their blueberry cheesecake. The plate where it sits is smothered with chocolate syrup for the purpose of presentation. It’s taste wasn’t even recognized if you get a teaspoonful of the cheesecake but just a little hint of the chocolate.

Happy tummy…

Soon, soon. I’m so full.

Over-all, it is recommendable to spend quiet and quality time here with your family or friends. They have tables for two.

table for twos
There are 3 tables for 2 in the ground floor.

We were allowed to use a table meant for 6 persons because I fell in love with the 2-seater sofa with a huge rose design on the fabric.

There’s a soft music playing and conversations from the other tables goes unnoticed. Do not fret if all the tables are occupied. They have more space on the second floor.

I like my cafe latte. Just as I expected it and a simple syrup is included to satiate my sweet tooth.

teas
They have teas too..

Before leaving, out of curiosity, I asked the attendant if why they do not serve rose petals in their menu. According to him, they used to but it was hard keeping stocks of it as there are not much produced. The staff are friendly too and are willing to assist you prior to you requesting for it.

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
