Early Sunday morning, the second and last day of my weekend staycation at F1 Hotel Manila. Funny how easy it is to wake up really early on a weekend, despite the late night with one too many shots of Scotch and an awesome barbecue dinner at F1 Hotel Manila's Canary Lounge. I think that's the magic of a weekend staycation, when you find yourself totally free of stress and fully recharged.
A walk down the poolside has a calming and soothing effect, and no, it's not the residual Scotch still circulating in my system. The early morning light and the still waters of the pool combine for a tranquil morning, and yet I have to remind myself that I am still in the middle of a bustling commercial district. But yet, one feels a million miles away.
I catch the morning sun by the pool, and a good cup of coffee should complete a perfect picture. Better yet, an early morning breakfast before the crowd. And my weekend staycation at F1 Hotel Manila just gets better and better...
Crisp bacon. Nothing says breakfast better than bacon. Seriously.
And Beef Tapa. With scrambled eggs and rice...
...and the smell of freshly baked bread and pastries to complete the cool breakfast vibe.
F1 Hotel Manila's F All Day Dining offers an impressive breakfast spread, from fresh yogurt, to pancakes and congee, to fresh fruits and cheeses, to cereal and fresh fruit juices. Deciding what to have can be challenging, but just go with the flow...it's a weekend staycation, so enjoy yourself.
I choose a spot and settle down for some brewed coffee. Unhurried, stress-free...if only all mornings were like that.
I start with an omelette, freshly prepared at the cooking station, with everything on it. Fresh tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, cheese...the works.
Pair it with some bacon, a good cup of coffee, and you're on your way to an excellent breakfast.
And there's no better way to end an awesome weekend staycation than a full-blown breakfast...
...as you go for seconds. And thirds. With Chef Sau del Rosario on deck heading F1 Hotel Manila's kitchens, you can expect nothing but the best. Special thanks to Chef Sau del Rosario and F1 Hotel Manila for a truly awesome weekend staycation...
