Share your Serendipic shot with Nescafé Philippines and win a camera!

What is a Serendipic?

Serendipic was coined from the words serendipity and picture. Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it, while picture is a visual representation or image painted, drawn, photographed, or otherwise rendered on a flat surface.

So Serendipics are photos of your “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise” moments.

Carpets of Koi

On our way home from Tagaytay, we had a quick stopover at Solenad, Nuvali. Solenad blends essential shopping with leisure and dining in a relaxing, al fresco, lakeside environment. There are floor fountains or pumping fountains in the middle of the lake as part of the attraction Riding the water taxi or feeding the schools of fish are just some of the activities one can enjoy at NUVALI.

With my in-laws

It was their first time seeing thousands of big koi fishes. The number of koi fish in the water of Nuvali is enough to turn the water into gold. It’s really something we don’t usually see everyday!
