Le Méridien Chiang Mai and Latest Recipe ♥ ♥

The Filipino-Chinese peoples in Manila are extremely guarded, ultraconservative, mega traditional, et cetera, et cetera.

But at 31 years old, I think I am finally ready for it.

Sleeping with people I just met.

I hate to admit it, but it excites the very hell outta me.

IMG_6297Croque Madame – rather forgettable


IMG_6308Smoked Salmon and Poached Egg Sandwich


My plates:

IMG_6306Assorted cold cuts salad with yogurt dill dressing, Jean-Georges green tea coconut bread,
a slice of brie, roasted squash


IMG_6309Waffle with maple syrup and cinnamon sugar, Jean-Georges Croque Madame,
pickled vegetables with scrambled egg, baked beans


IMG_6311This solo serving glass container is major cuteness


IMG_6312And the Bircher muesli inside is major deliciousness


IMG_6314Pineapple and passion fruit

So tart, so sweet, guaranteed to awaken every inch of your sleepy body.
