Last March I went to Melbourne, Australia with my friends. We took Philippine Airlines since it's the fastest way to get there. The direct flight took a mere 8 hours. Because I used my mileage I flew on business class going to Melbourne and economy back to Manila.

I've eaten churrasco twice in my life. The first time was decades ago at Fogo de Chao in Dallas. I wasn't much of a meat eater then so I was overwhelmed and didn't quite enjoy it. The second time was a few years back at a restaurant in Rockwell where all the meats were marinated in the same sauce. I definitely didn't like that at all. So you can imagine my reticence when I was told we were having a churrasco dinner at Movenpick Hotel.
To have the full Mövenpick Hotel experience Manny O suggested I try the massage at the hotel's Spa Delmar. I took this picture of the beach and Ibiza Beach Club from the Spa using my iPhone's panorama feature.

I'm one of those weirdos who don't like lechon (suckling pig). Whenever there's lechon at a party I just take a piece or two of lechon skin and pray that it's crispy otherwise I won't even eat that. I don't bother taking the meat unless it's transformed into paksiw na lechon. I just find the meat bland and boring.

The only time I have a heavy breakfast is when I stay in a hotel and my stay comes with a buffet. I must say the breakfast spread of Shangri-La Mactan was pretty darn good.

A couple of weeks ago I received a text from my friend who was on vacation, "Want to come to Cebu?" Within in a few hours of her text I booked my flight and flew off the next day. If that wasn't impulsive I don't know what is.
