big breakfast


nothing perks me up like a big breakfast! and since it’s been a dreary two weeks (and still ongoing) of rains and floods in these parts, i thought i’d cheer myself up by posting this item that’s long been languishing in our draft folder. (actually, not that long, maybe a month or so.)

this is what i ordered one morning when i was on fieldwork — to start an arduous day when i would go to sites up in faraway waters and lands hanging on outrigger boats and motorbikes (well, nakaangkas lang. ha.ha.) it was aptly called “the big wave” or something: consists of one beef patty, a couple slices of bacon, hash brown, two eggs, and a toast (well, of course i had to request that they replace the bread with rice. har.har.).

btw, you know that my favorite hotel buffet meal is not lunch or dinner right? — yup, breakfast!!!

    more like the sausages there. though i think they use the same patty for their hamburgers. ha.ha.hitching a ride in a habal-habal (that's what they call motorbikes used for public transport in the provinces) is not fun if you're in a mountainous place 😦 i had to get off the bike at least twice because it couldn't go up uphill roads…if the load at the back is heavier than the one in front. ha.ha. πŸ˜€

    where did habal-habal come from? is that a native word? does it come from making “habol” the motorbike? he he he
