Beauty queen Rachel Peters opening cafe
Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters is set to open a coffee shop in Siargao, an island about 800km southeast of Manila.
She says she wants to combine three things she loves: coffee, pastries and watersports.
Her cafe, Bake, is right by the beach and is set to open next month.
“Bake is pretty much like me,” she says, noting that its location allows her and her guests to be “baked by the sun”.
The 26-year-old Filipino-British model says she loves surfing, loves Siargao and loves the beach. Siargao is known as the “surfing capital of the Philippines”.
Peters learned to be a barista while staying in Melbourne, which she describes as “the coffee capital of the world”.
During Bake’s early days, she will be preparing to represent the Philippines in the next Miss Universe pageant.
