This is Maginhawa Street, all the way in UP Teacher's Village in Diliman, Quezon City, I don't know how many miles from Makati.
It seems like a good neighborhood, with nearby restaurants, spas, barbershops/salons, a bookstore, laundromats, a BPO hub, and of course, schools.
In such an area, a café or a tea shop is sure to rake it in, what with a captive and loyal clientele: people like me who suddenly crave for milk tea and almost do not mind the distance and the time.
Just imagine if someone franchised Moonleaf Tea Shop and brought it to Makati. Mind you, I am not alone in making this gentle yet urgent plea.
Do you know how many people travel to Makati every single day?
My friends and I would tie polka dot ribbons around the trees of Makati City just to prove a point. (Ummm, think of them as pearls. :P)
Moonleaf Tea Shop currently has three branches:
- 44 Magiting Street, UP Teacher's Village East (near Ministop Maginhawa), 1101 Diliman District, Quezon City
- 103 Maginhawa Street, UP Teacher's Village East (beside Delish)...
- Esteban Abada Street (next to Crave), Loyola Heights, Quezon City
