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.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
