ON SUM­MER

Let’s Eat - - NEWS -

“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.
