Breakout Philippines: Living Legends-ish

Forget A Walk to Remember, yesterday was a day to remember!

Yesterday – February 4, 2017 –  I met up with some of my Filipino / Philippine-based friends from when I went on an exchange program in Japan last year. We met because of the exchange program, and have been good friends ever since! Anyways, we decided to head for the Katipunan area because initially, we wanted to eat at a restaurant situated in that area. We changed our minds later on when we were weighing out the cost of the imaginary possible bill. Instead, we decided to tick one thing off our bucket list: going to Breakout Philippines.

If you’ve been following my blog or my social media accounts, you’ll probably know or have some kind of idea that I’ve been going to escape games a lot. Yesterday would mark my 5th time. One reason I keep going back is because escape games are so much fun; my mind and my observation skills are tested here along with teamwork and cooperation with friends. Another reason would be the fact that I was never able to successfully escape yet. I’ve had a lot of close calls (99% – ugh, 60%, 80%, and 70%), but I never got to escape…

UNTIL THIS DAY:

BAM. WE ESCAPED with twenty seconds to spare! The last five minutes were really intense; we were ready to give up and call it quits when the last clue revealed itself – there was a lot of screaming and running afterward.

Breakfast at Maginhawa x Breakout Philippines

A few weeks ago, I met up with some of my friends – we started our day with some brunch at Theo’s Café!

As soon as we saw the tarp saying “Now Serving Breakfast”, we knew that we were going to end up eating here.

Since it IS breakfast time, it would only make sense to eat something “breakfasty”.

I ordered the Waffle + Bacon + Egg – which tasted so good! The waffle is soft and had a creamy taste, the bacon is just the right balance of crunchy and chewy (with the right tad of sweetness), and the egg is done just the way I like it (sunny side up with a runny yolk). On top of it all, it also came with free coffee!
