A year passed by so quickly that next month is already Christmas and next thing we know it's already 2017. 
Since Filipinos celebrate Christmas for almost 4 months, I believe your Christmas shopping list and wishlist is almost done but if you have not decided what to give, I'll give you an idea on what to give to your family and loved ones since Christmas is more of giving than receiving.



This year, The Giving Journal 2017 has four covers and each cover has an icon. Each icon is a graphic representation of how The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf commits to giving back to the community, through promoting goodwill and social responsibility.





Caring Cup Global ( Gray ) means to give back to farmers and the community who work hard to supply The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf with Simply the Best products, the Caring Cup aims to provide them with their needs- whether it be a sustainable source of livelihood or education for their children.

Radiating Heart ( Rose ) signifies how you can live up to the essence of giving by performing little acts of kindness.





Coffee Tree Cup ( Turquoise ) represents The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's hopeful mission - that through our efforts and those our partner organizations, we can help nurture growth and provide a better life for others, one cup at a time.

Overflows ( Purple ) symbolizes  what your outlook in life should be, instead of viewing life as as glass half full or half empty, acknowledge your life as overflowing. Brew your best year by reaching your full potential.

Giving Journal 2017 ( L-R ) : Rose, Purple, Gray and Turquoise

Through the 2017 Giving Journal, you empower scholars by giving them the gift of education through Real Life Foundation.By supporting their educational needs, you bring them one step closer to achieving their goals, enabling their dreams to take flight.




The Coffee Bean and Teal Leaf supports Real Life Foundation and Habitat for Humanity. Real Life Foundation, an organization committed to serve the poor through education, character development and community service. 



What I really like about this journal is that not only do I get to enjoy my favorite coffee and collect stamps which will enable me to get a journal but I also get to help other Filipinos who are in need.


So start collecting now and be a tool to help others.

Last November 6 was Wu Yi Fan's 26th birthday and he celebrated it with his fans through a special birthday concert.

Yi Fan surprised his fans by performing his latest single entitled July. It is his first English single and I hope it will not be his last. Check out his latest single along with his latest MV.



Wu Yi Fan - July m4a


Wu Yi Fan - July

I've been lookin' for a reason
to have you in my arms where you wanna be
never had a woman so pure
glad to have you right where you wanna be


Talking to the mornin' we don't need any sleep
I hate it when you go to work
Laying till the sun damn near feel like a dream
I hate it when we go to work


(You should be here)
Baby baby I'm
doin' what feels right
baby baby now
Don't tell me what you wanna say
show me how you feelin' babe


You been lookin' for a reason
to have me in your arms where I wanna be

give you what you need and no more
glad to have you right where you wanna be


Talking to the mornin' we don't need any sleep
I hate it when you go to work

Laying till the sun damn near feel like a dream
I hate it when we go to work


(You should be here)
Baby baby I'm
doin' what feels right
baby baby now
Don't tell me what you wanna say
show me how you feelin' babe


You know this ain't rocket science
get what you got comin' to you
I know what you like
you know that imma keep it comin', uh
something bout this moet got you in the mood
say you got a situation
tell that other guy to move


Easy, I may have to call in work, girl
How I'm spose to lay this work girl
Yo shit way too good to function
I'm like Jordan when it's crunch time
We at Nobu when it's lunch time
Imma get up out of your way, girl
but only if we spendin' some time, sometimes


Baby baby I'm
doin' what feels right
baby baby now
Don't tell me what you wanna say
show me how you feelin' babe
