I still remember when I started the Things to Do in Lipa City fan page. I remember being so happy when it hit 500 followers. 500 quickly became 1,000. 1,000 quickly became 5,000, and so on and so forth. That quick growth made me decide to take things seriously. This gave birth to Hello Lipa – Lipa City’s first and biggest lifestyle blog.

With the support of our clients and of course, our followers, we’ve now hit 100,000 followers!

Friends, Family, and Team Hello Lipa

It just so happened that this milestone happened a few days before my birthday, so this calls for a double celebration. I initially wanted a big party but due to lack of time, I decided to have a small party instead with my closest family, friends, and my Hello Lipa family. I immediately thought of Gabz Café and Lounge as the perfect venue for this party.

About Gabz Café and Lounge

It’s a relatively new restaurant but is already one of the most popular especially among students of De La Salle Lipa. Located just across the campus, it gets packed with students looking for affordable and filling meals. While their menu consists of affordable and filling meals, it’s not the reason behind its popularity.

It’s actually the ambience. You get this home away from home feeling especially with how hands-on the owners are. They love what they’re doing and they love their customers. It really shows. It’s like you’re getting a hug all the time you’re there. With this in mind, I realized that it’s the perfect venue for this party since I’ll be with the people that I love.

I’ll feature the offerings of Gabz in a separate blog post.

Party! Party! Party!

The party started at around 7 PM. Our guests, a lot of which are already fans of Gabz, quickly felt at home. Those new to Gabz immediately felt the reasons why it’s very popular. Gabz had new fans that night.

The café is actually undergoing renovation and it’s now bigger and more spacious. This is good news for regular customers. It’s also amazing news for people looking for an intimate venue for their party.

The owners also cater to parties. They cooked up a storm for this party and my guests raved about the food.

What’s a party without lechon? Thanks to Allen’s Native Lechon for this crispy and delicious native lechon de leche!


It was just a simple party, but as you can see from these pictures, our guests had a lot of fun.
