Everyone's talking about La Vie Parisienne

So, I heard about La Vie Parisienne.  Actually, I first saw it in a location shoot for an episode of MagTV, a local magazine TV show in Cebu. The pink trees intrigued me a lot and thought, this place is worth a try. 

When our boss told us that it's time for us to "unwind" (short word for our monthly team weekend-bonding at the office), this place first came to my mind. His first plan was for us to get pampered at a spa, but some of us wants to go on a pigging-out spree and the boys on a regular relaxing and drinking session talking about mostly nothings. When I shouted " I want to go to La Vie Parisienne!",  I won. 

I just love the pink lights at La Vie Parisienne at night

After dinner, the group went straight to 371 Gorordo Avenue Lahug Cebu City. La Vie Parisienne is a French deli, bakery and has a wine library. My boss who happens to be a regular  here says this is owned by the Lhulliers who has their own vineyard in France. We got there at around 9:00PM and the place was not surprisingly crowded. Cherry blossoms replica adds a bit of excitement for the first timers here. 

A lot of wines to choose from
I went directly to the bakery where the Wine Library was located and I was so excited by the time I opened the door. There were people enjoying their wines inside, as my colleague said, it's a first-come, first-serve basis when you want to stay at the wine library. I took that in mind, and so when I came back, it was easy. It was surprisingly smaller than I thought. The cellar looked bigger on some photos I saw.
