Island life

The best location for a Starbucks coffeeshop that I've seen in Metro Manila is the branch in Trinoma mall. It's on the 5th level roofdeck sitting in its own little island full of palm trees and green bushes, surrounded by a pond with tiny cascades and misters.

That is a perfect spot for Starbucks. And with the Manila weather as hot as it is, a little spray of mist when the air blows would cool down the patrons.

Hilda, you get to all the hot spots don't you? How cool is this? We should have a few coffee shops like this over here. I would imagine sales would go up. Beautiful shot Hilda.

I'm a tea drinker myself, but for a nice relaxing afternoon at this spot, I'd have to think about converting to lattes and mochas.

The only thing you find on the roof of the few malls here are parked cars. Lovely place, I would be there now! (I'm in my windowless office).

I just woke up - my husband said - Hilda saw your rainbow - I can't believe it - he was skeptical that anyone can see it. Thank you - you made my morning happy from the start. I did put pastel rainbow gradient in low opacity to color the water a bit! My camera is broken - so I save the images with program called GIMP - that my husband installed. Thank you again. I need coffee now - wish I could join those people for breakfast :) Great place!

That's the nicest Starbucks I've ever seen. Very beautiful surroundings.

It is amazing that they can build a water feature like this on the 5th story of the mall. Delight place for a cup of coffee.

I though that was you I heard laughing on my blog, Hilda :D

This looks like a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee (and the surroundings).

Misters, this is something new for me!
With Jerusalem at 34 degrees today with 20% humidity, the idea of a mister sounds appealing.
