Lunch at Cafe Serina, a restaurant located halfway up the

The weather was bad yesterday, but today it’s sunny!
The weather was fine and the view from this restaurant was
spectacular, so we
We agreed to go to Cafe Selina for lunch.
When I entered the restaurant, two lovely madams were
finishing their lunch and chatting with each other over a cup

$8.3 (tax included)
Okumura ordered Garlic Rice with Coffee.
