Breakfast and Prayers

January 16, 2013


I love unplanned breakfast dates.

C and I got lucky because her daughter has dance practice until 2pm today (no need to rush back during lunchtime). So after dropping the kids off to school, we were on our way to the south. And lucky again because there's no traffic.

This is the view that greeted us while we were waiting for our breakfast (Bag of Beans, near Tagaytay Rotonda). Such a foggy day. The air was cold but we were armed with jackets and shawls. Not-gonna-freeze-today-not-like-the-last-time!





The view and air was so relaxing. I think I can stare at the lake the whole day. And maybe write some stories or poems. Or simply daydream while sipping a cup of hot cocoa.

Hot Chocolate. Two thumbs up! Perfect.




Omelette and Sausage. Not bad, according to C.


 

Longganisa Meal. The egg and fried rice tastes good. I can't say the same for the longganisa. Something's off or lacking with the taste. They even claimed it's homemade.



Pink Sisters. It was so quiet- serene and peaceful when we arrived at the church. Maybe because it is a weekday that's why there's only a handful of church visitors.




A Prayer in Spring
by Robert Frost


OH, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orcahrd white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
To which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends he will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.

Ca Phe Da Experience at District 1

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
