Wanted something different and simple with the kids that night. I planned a 1-day vacation leave from work and went to Century City Mall 'cause I suddenly miss and crave for breakfast favorites...
I have a very strange eating patterns nowadays and I don't eat breakfast (breakfast in the Philippines or for most people) consistently cause I sleep during the day. Technically, "breakfast" for me is on or about 6:00 in the evening - the usual move your ass time to prepare for work.
I personally chose the Early Bird Breakfast Club, kids' first time to try it and it was indeed a beautiful dinner breakfast at about 8:40 PM. Yay! :)
I got myself the Sweet Glazed Katsino (P375) for I haven't eaten anything.
It's a Pork Cutlet / Tonkatsu and tastes like Tocino. I enjoyed it with Hangover Rice and scrambled eggs. Request for extra sauce, it's really good!
I asked the kids and demanded for some finger food - both salty and sweet:
Kuya ordered Bacon Twist (P285) - baked lean bacon, twisted and served with maple syrup; we loved it and ordered another set.
I ordered French Toast Fondue (P210) for my daughter and we enjoyed it as well. Served with melted chocolate, maple syrup and cinnamon sugar.
She's excited for school and thrilled for the coloring set offered to her before eating!
Everything looked so bright and happy inside, the usual! This is their second branch at Century City Mall. First is the one in The Fort, BGC where I tried the Toast Fondue and tea. The staff heard it's my Birthday and served a complimentary cake. Thank you guys!

Will blog more about the extended celebration separately and One Serendra, soon!
I couldn't afford to fly outside of Philippines to celebrate my Birthday. When my brother said they're leaving for Caramoan to have their Team Building, I decided to convince myself to go and glad it was all good to join them.
Apologies, cause I don't think I will be able to itemized the expenses during the trip but to gave you an idea, we were about (14) and we gave out P5,200/head which include fares (bus, boat, tricycle, and jeep), island hopping, food, and a place/house where we slept for 2 nights.
One of the bus companies who offers direct trips to Sabang Port is Raymond Bus Lines - located in Araneta Center, Cubao.
We left Manila the night of 02/APR then we get to Sabang Port (San Jose, CamSur) morning of 03/APR, Thursday.
The boat who took us to Guijalo Port ^
The food at the Cafeteria fronting the beach is nice. Better get something before you sail 'cause it would take about 2 hours, depending on sea condition.
We were so bored and able to get some cat naps...
At Guijalo Port -
We rented a small jeep and tricycle:
Their tricycle are huge and can accommodate up to 8 people...
We all waited for Friday for our island getaway!!! You have to plan your trip soon. We all deserve to enjoy these beautiful islands. Caramoan is captivating but the trip was long-suffering. Will definitely go back but taking the plane next time...

This tops my list! It's a twin beach and the rock formations are awesome.
Make sure you pack your sunblock. Sabitang-Laya hardly has shed to cover/hide from too much heat!
This island has the finest white sand and went up a bit to see the other side... Be extra cautious though, the rock formation are pointy and sharp. Got a few cuts when I get down. lol
This part is only accessible during lowtide...
The experience wouldn't be complete without trying the authentic Bicol Express -
Also able to visit churches -
Travelling are oftentimes tiring and could even test your patience but at the end of it, you'll smile knowing it's worth all the pain, sweat and effort.
I am claiming the slippers (12 pairs) would last for a year or two until I'm ready to come back...
This Avanti Quattro of Mares is not for me... But will opt to get an open heel fins - hope I could try the Volo and Raptor soon!
What I need at times:
- Moisturizer / Night Cream (Avalon)
- Lip Gloss (EOS)
- Loyalty Cards :)
