Beakfast by the Bay

Wednesday, May 10, 2006

I had to go to Manila this morning for business, and from our place, that's a 1 hour drive. I didn't want to choose between the regular breakfast joints such as Jollibee, Burger King, Chowking or McDonalds. So I cruised the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) area and discovered this new place called Harbour Square. It's right beside the place where you book for Corregidor Tours.

Upon checking out the places to eat at that early in the morning, I found Tapa King, Starbucks and Pancake House. Of the three, it was Pancake House that had the best view of the Bay.

It was a pleasurable and calming experience to have breakfast by the bay. I got to see the Manila Yacht Club, some Philippine Navy ships, people exercising along the bay stretch, the rowing team and the Corregidor Sun Cruiser leaving for their daily trips to the historic Corregidor in Bataan, while enjoying a continental breakfast consisting of sausages, eggs, hash browns and toast. For a change, I chose to have tea instead of coffee.

Sad to say this was the highest point of my day as everything afterwards went downhill. But this particular trip to Manila was worth taking, even if it was just for breakfast.
