“Hair gets lighter. Skin gets darker. Drinks get colder. Music gets louder. Nights get longer. Life gets better.”
My favorite “start of summer” meme: author unknown. I post this every year, right after Easter, on my social media channels, and I’m always tempted to add “Meralco bills get higher”. But that will almost certainly throw shade on all the good vibes. Speaking of which, Boracay is on everyone’s mind. There are endless debates about its closure, but the opinions that matter most, as far as I’m concerned, are the ones from my friends there. And they’re not optimistic; frankly, most are frantic. The forecast is for cloudy skies over the island for the next six months. All I can do is be forever the optimist, and hope that there is, literally and figuratively, a silver lining. I pray that by November, the sun will shine bright again, and I’ll be able to have some of those calamansi muffins from Real Coffee once more. They’ve been my favorite Boracay breakfast since 1996.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep my heart singing and my belly smiling at two of the city’s best new breakfast-all-day joints. I suggest you visit them soon. Breakfast after all, is the most important meal of the day.
