QC Circle of Fun X Circles Cafe

Posting overdue entries. Bear with me.

30 December 2013
The afternoon was spent with fellow church workers and pastors' families for a Post-Christmas celebration. The whole event was fun and indeed a blessing. I've always been a fan of families serving the church together. It is a sight to behold.
Bet took the photo. Extra si Paulo. :D
After that, the younger son of our church's associate pastor asked if we could go to Star City. Because we are coming from Novaliches, the request was quite pang-Wish Ko Lang, mejo mahirap logistically. The kid would just want to ride a bump car, so I suggested we go see QC Memorial Circle, the easier and more accessible choice. They happily agreed; so by 7pm, we're at the heart of Quezon City.

Admit one.
Good thing, the perya's still open until 11pm that night. (Christmas season has its perks. Hehe) Entrance fee was 10pesos (yata) and the rides range from 50 to 80pesos. We left the kid and his parents to their endless bump car rides while my siblings and I + the kid's older brother tried the "adult" rides. Haha. We did the mini roller coaster first. Mejo buwis buhay for our precious eye glasses and the rickety seat lock, but worth all the fun. And then, we rode our all time favorite, the carousel. The funny experience was when another guy was trying to get a selfie while the horses are galloping. We would have wanted help him get a decent shot but he seems like he won't budge. So there. A for effort, Kuya. The last attraction was the Haunted House. After two or three minutes inside the house, our initial straight line was already a crumbled circle when we got out and extended brother's semi-fit shirt was stretched out a bit. We were screaming because of fright and laughing at ourselves at the same time. Never again.

Tsubibo!
Because we still have time, we visited Circles Cafe. It's a quaint coffee shop serving pasta, pizza and desserts to park-goers. We discovered it accidentally when another friend and I explored QC Circle before. Their chocolate tartuffo was heaven so I asked if there's one available. Unfortunately, they phased it out from their menu because it was quite expensive. They resorted to ice cream cheesecakes which are equally good and fun to eat. We tried almost all the flavors available: strawberry, mango and cookies and cream. Their strawberry cheesecake was delightful, cookies and cream's like good ice cream and mango cake was refreshing. The cream cheese was not too sweet and cloying, maybe because the cakes are frozen.

Circles Cafe is good for after-morning walks and usual afternoon chats. It has this homey feel—like you are staying in your back garden. Arte. Hehe. If you want to visit it, the café’s near the newly constructed Quezon Museum. J
