Fatterside in Boracay, Day 3



Fatterside Breakfast Club



IMG 5533

This morning I noticed I was starting to grow a triple chin (on my face and my tummy) from all the
pizzas and chips I had been eating, so I decided to limit breakfast to a smallish omelette,
one piece of longganisa, and one tiny piece of chicken adobo

What people didn't know was that this smallish omelette packed all these ingredients:
little ham, little mushrooms, some red bell peppers, chopped onions and loads and loads of
(gasp!) processed cheese

Mangoes to balance the diet

I was so relieved I was wearing something over my bikini when Sophie of Beautynomics and her
friends approached me at the breakfast table. I would die a million deaths if she saw the million
folds on my stomach… and back, and arms, and thighs! Hi Sophie and friends! :)




After breakfast we went to the other side of the island for my favorite water activity

The 4 chunkier cousins got on one fish. The 5 normal-sized ones got on the other. 
This is the chunkier group. That girl on the right… that's not me!!!




We asked the flyfish manong to drive very, very fast.
We are suckers for speed and adrenaline rush!

The skinnier ones hung on really tightly

They lost only a few people, and very few times




The chunkier group, on the other hand, spent more time in the water (and getting back up
on the fish - OMG, that took forever!) than on the flyfish itself




Archie and I. The last two standing.




And that's my brother. He almost died of fear.




Still full from gallons of saltwater consumption, we had a very light lunch at Ambassador Resort




Prawn and Lobster Bisque




Black Truffle Oil Mushroom Cappuccino

Cacciuco - a creamed mixture of prawns, fish and crab blended with tomato and brunoise
of vegetables. This was really delicious!




Black Truffle Oil Mushroom Risotto




Pinoyzza - fresh Filipino pandesal dough topped with cream cheese, marinated tuna,
shallots, salted egg, arugula




Four Cheese Pizza - blue cheese, brie, cheddar, mozzarella
Ambassador's pizzas were not bad, but I couldn't help comparing them to Two Seasons'
which were much, much better




Marble Cheesecake




Chocolate Ganache




Reminiscing about our flyfish adventures (and misadventures). YES, THAT HILARIOUS.




After lunch, I was once again forced by the younger cousins to perform an act of silliness.
They wanted me, jinlovestoeat, to form part of the letter "a" 



It took about 35 minutes to get everyone to agree, stand up, learn the letters, actually do the letters, and find a willing non-Fatterside to document our efforts.






I tell you, we were the free live entertainment of the whole Station One.

I retired to the cabanas (ate pizza) and left them to continue with their acts of extreme silliness.

Such as this

And this.


I thank God for digital cameras. If they didn't exist, my cousins would have finished one million three hundred sixty eight rolls of film.

Fire is mesmerizing




No wonder people like to play with it




She (or He) danced with fire



IMG 2597

I am afraid of fire. I danced the hula. (Sorry for the arm sag, oops!)




Made a quick stop to Jonah's for our daily dose of sugar




Again, these naughty mustache boys spiked our shakes




Snacked on mooncakes back in the hotel room




Didn't want our last night in Boracay to end
