The Breakfast Club

I’m never a morning person. I don’t spring out of bed with a big smile on my face, ready to embrace the bright shiny day ahead. I snooze my alarm more times than I should and I spend the rest of the morning avoiding people until after lunch time.

This attitude is apparent in how I got accustomed to skip breakfast for the majority of my life. Even during holidays in a fancy hotel or beach resort, the free breakfast buffet is never enough reason for me to get up and catch the dramatic sunrise. Eat vs. sleep? People who know me well know it’s always the latter.

In rare occasions that I do get up and eat, I often find myself enjoying breakfast heartily. After all, waffles, pancakes, eggs, fruits, bacoooooon are the stuff my dreams are often made of. It’s therefore an added joy when I see places that serve breakfast all day long. It’s like having my favorites without sacrificing my sleep! To celebrate my new found happiness in this staple part of the day, here are some of the most memorable breakfast meals I ever had.

Disclaimer: I’m not a food photographer and I always forget my basic training in plating whenever I’m about to devour heaven, so don’t expect good photos here.

I had a very light breakfast at this camping resort down south (Terra Manna) as I was planning to slip into my bikini right after the meal! The food was good but the view was superb.

The first breakfast I ever made for the boyf was not an actual breakfast but a take-out from Jollibee during his birthday two years ago.

And he returned the favor a few months later with this home made panacake he prepared not only for me but for my parents and dogs as well.

A typical Pinoy breakfast, Cornsilog and Hamsilog, we grabbed at a bus terminal on our way to an out of town trip.

Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

My kind of breakfast when I was doing boxing.

A terrible shot but definitely my fave! This was the breakfast that woke me up on my birthday last year, c/o my dear father.
