Moving to the new work place wasn't easy. I had to forget everything about my previous office (like getting up late and still making it on time) because Ortigas is just a different kind of hell hole. Traffic is difficult to predict any time of the day. I prefer going to work during the afternoon because I hate the daily commute, I don't like wasting my time in a cab just to get to work. I thought I can follow at least that drill once I'm settled, but wait, traffic in Ortigas seems to be worse in the afternoon! I tried going to work in the morning and at night and it's still the same infuriating problem. The only time traffic is not a pain in the arse is during the wee hours of the morning.
Despite having to deal with the situation, I'm still relieved because we have some pretty awesome breakfast places around the new building. I've always gone to CBTL but not for the food. Whenever Starbucks is jam-packed and I can't seem to enjoy a cup of Joe in peace, I tend to frequent the place for it has a relatively quieter environment than SB. Little did I know that it has more to offer than my usual Pure Vanilla.
