Fatterside in Boracay, Day 1


IMG 5389

Woke up really early to catch our 6am flight to Boracay. Don't be fooled by the happy smiles, 
we were sleepy and hungry and all zombied out. 




Almost there...




 By the time we arrived at the island 2.5 hours later, we were face to face with Death by Starvation.
We dropped our bags at the hotel and went out immediately in search for edibles.

On the way, we saw this fun group of Hawaiian-wannabe Taiwanese tourists.
Watching them pose for the camera provided our much-needed morning entertainment. :D




Our first stop was Jonah's, where we bought healthy (?) and nutritious fruit milkshakes




Mango Melon lovers. With milk and 100% sugar. My #1 favorite at Jonah's.

And then, we walked to Real Coffee for real food

Real Coffee is famous for breakfast dishes and calamansi muffins

My cousin Nikko gently harassed the staff to give us freshly baked ones

This is one muffin that tastes real good when you're breathing Boracay air.
We brought some home and found that they taste just okay in Manila surroundings.

Jack's Omelette



It was almost noon when we left Real Coffee so we figured we'll grab lunch even if we just finished breakfast. This is how the Fatterside rolls. :P

Lunch was burgers galore at Bite Club

And look who's here, too! Hello again, Hawaiian-wannabe Taiwanese tourists from this morning!



Each of us ordered a different burger but they all looked alike, so I stopped taking photos and started attacking after three.

Burgerella with Blue Cheese Cream 
FYI, Burgerella is a ⅓ pound burger stuffed with mozzarella

Bombarella with Chunky Mushroom and Cheese

FYI, it was no challenge eating a burger as big and round as my face :P

We had fries, too

Frances, Me, Jr, Archie, Nikko, Benjie, Jamie. All certified gluttons.




And then we hit the beach and paraded our fats




To burn off some of the calories, we spent the afternoon playing with waves




The current was really strong and harsh. If the Fatterside oldies were here, we would all be in
BIG TROUBLE for putting our lives in grave danger :P




Once in a while, we had to stop and help each other put our trunks and bikinis back on, haha!




And then, back to eating (well, at least for me)

Because, you know, Jin loves to eat :)



We fell asleep back at the hotel waiting for everyone to finish taking showers. Woke up at 9pm and headed out to dinner.



Gasthof. "Home of Boracay's Famous Baby Back Ribs" (tagline theirs)



And so, of course, we ordered ribs. Methought they were good but over-sauced.




Pig Knuckle was hard and dry. And tiny!

Pork BBQ Liempo had more fat than meat

After dinner we walked around D'Mall (I had FIC Nangkasuy ice cream) and we called it a night
