Where is a great place for breakfast in Manila?

Blue Bay Walk restaurants 24 hours

It really depends on your idea of a great breakfast.

,If you like a bayside breakfast, some outlet restaurants in Harbor Square in CCP will be pleasant.

Pancake House is my go-to place there but you can go to the Starbucks if thats your thing.

,Bikers Cafe in SM Mall of Asias Blue Bay area near the water is also technically bayside, but its harder to see the sun and the water from inside the restaurant.

,If you mean the Greater Manila Area or NCR, then some breakfast places on Maginhawa Street in QC can be okay-ish.

The food is so-so in my opinion, but its tolerable and the neighborhood vibe is nice.

UP Diliman is also nearby if you fancy a walk before or after the meal.

The tapsilog in nearby Rodicu2019s Diner is famous there, though there are more upscale morning beef places.

,If you fancy a later breakfast on the weekend and youre near Malabon then Nanayu2019s Pancit Malabon offers possibly the best version of that nationwide thats commercially sold.

Grab some Doloru2019s Kakanin or Malabon puto near the public market after your pancit.

,There are okay 24 hour Beef Pares places, too.

Theres Pares Pares near N Domingo in San Juan City and another branch on N Domingo.

Pares Retiro is open a little later on Tomas Morato.

,Theres a lot of other choices.

Depends on what youre looking for.

Blue Bay Restaurants

Burlingame downtown is a beautiful place to roam around and has many good restaurants.

I really like the Crepevine, Blue Line Pizza and Coconut Bay Restaurant(Thai) in Burlingame.

Blue Bay Walk buffet

Try a restaurant called u201cdie strandloperu201d up the west coast in Langebaan.

Not the average restaurant setting.

Its on the beach in the sand.

Buffet cost R150 per head.

Everything is cooked on coals.

,2) Game fishing at one of the many spots around Cape Town.

My favourite is fishing off the pier at kalk Bay harbour, simonstown along the railway or surf fishing at strandfontein.

Fishing gear can be bought or rented at some fishing tackle stores in retreat, muizenberg and fish hoek.

Dont forget to apply for a fishing permit at any post office.

Takes less than 10mins.

,3.

Rent a scooter /motorcycle and round the peninsula.

Preferably on a Saturday or Sunday morning just after sunrise.

Start at muizenberg and make your way towards Cape point.

Pass through noordhoek, Scarborough then over Chapmans peak to hout Bay for breakfast.

From there make your way towards Llandudno, Camps bay then take the high mountain Road towards the city passing signal Hill and coming down Kloof Street towards the CBD.

Then take the M3 PAST UCT back to muizenberg.

Takes about 3 hours.

,4) Shopping at the local malls.

Cape Town has a few good malls as any modern city.

We have Canal walk, Waterfront, Cavendish mall, Blue route mall to name a few.

Here you can blend in and meet the locals, catch a movie, have supper.

,5) South African Astronomical observatory.

Opened in the 1820s.

Below is an extract from their website,u201cSAAOu2019s Cape Town headquarters, on the site of the former Royal Observatory (1828-1971), includes administration facilities, offices, the main library, computing facilities, engineering workshops and historic telescopes.

The topic of the talk is advertised on the SAAO homepage.

The eveningu2019s programme will also include an introduction to the historic McClean telescope and the observatory museum, as well as the observatory building.

If the weather is clear, there will be a chance for everyone to look at something in the sky using the McClean and other telescopes set up for the nightu201d,6) Kirstenbosch night concerts.

,u201cSummer isnu2019t summer in Cape Town without live music performances at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden on Sunday afternoons.

.

Gather your picnic baskets and blankets, meet with friends and family, enjoy our floral heritage on the slopes of Table Mountain, and let the music end your weekend on a high note.

Blue Bay Walk stores

A few years ago, I was walking past a disabled parking space when a BMW zipped into it really fast, cutting off a disabled person who was slowly lining up to park.

The disabled person had a visible wheel chair in the back seat.

nwhen the BMW driver got out of the car, there was no visible blue badge displayed and he didnu2019t need a space big enough to use a wheelchair.

I said he shouldnu2019t have cut the lady up like he did and that she clearly needed the space to fit her wheelchair.

His response was to tell me to f**k off and that his car cost three times what her piece of s**t cost and he didnu2019t want it damaged by some idiot not being careful.

He then went into the store.

I was so annoyed I followed him in asking him loudly and repeatedly why he had deliberately cut in front of a disabled driver and blocked her out of the space.

He was clearly very annoyed as I carried on doing this whilst he was shopping and (as you can imagine) attracting a lot of attention.

We both got plenty of dirty looks but he got many more than me.

When he went to pay for his items (we had quite an audience by then) he found that none of the cashiers were willing to serve him and so he eventually had to give up and leave without his items.

Outside there was a Police Officer taking his car details and the disabled lady in her wheelchair talking to the officer.

He got a bollocking from the Police Officer before he was allowed to drive off.

nUnlike disabled spaces on the highway, itu2019s not actually an offence to park in a disabled bay in a private carpark unless there are notices warning you of penalties, so I doubt there were any long term consequences for him.

I just hope he might think twice next time.

Double Dragon Plaza restaurants

1) The Plaza Athu00e9nu00e9e*****Area: Champs-u00c9lysu00e9es,25, avenue Montaigne, 75008Suite at the Plaza Athu00e9nu00e9e,The Plaza Athu00e9nu00e9e might be one of the most famous Parisian luxury hotels.

Its construction was ended in 1909.

It was opened in 1913 on the avenue Montaigne.

Over the decades of Paris history, it was once the nest of the Nazi authorities, later that of American soldiers, and then the favorite place of movie stars like Marlene Dietrich and Jean Gabin, for example.

It was closed for a few years for u201cmodernizationu201d and was opened again in 1936.

Its architect also built the Claridge, a 4-star hotel, also located in the surroundings of the Champs-Elysu00e9es.

Blue Bay Walk opening hours

Its in Australia: Ok, Guinness World Records states officially that it is Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay (they have tested it).

,However I have been to Hyams Beach in NSW and to Lucky Bay in WA and I feel like they are equal.

In my professional opinion they are both the whitest and have the whitest sand.

,The most beautiful beaches in the world by far are in Australia: ,Here is some info of how you can see one of the Whitest Beaches in the world and also see Kangaroos on the beach as well! Adorable!!,SEE KANGAROOS ON THE BEACH AND SEE ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACHES ON EARTH: Lucky Bay WA.

,Eight Hours drive south, west of Perth, is the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, on the Southern Ocean coastline, home to the worldu2019s whitest beach.

,Another hour inland through one of Australiau2019s most beautiful National Parks, Cape Le Grand, is a bay with the worldu2019s whitest beach.

Many think Hyams Beach is the whitest, I have visited both and I can say from experience that Lucky Bay and Western Australia is home to the worldu2019s whitest beaches.

,LUCKY BAY u2013 ESPERANCE AND WILD KANGAROOS,Lucky Bay, Esperance can be described in two words, pristine and perfect.

The ocean here is an unimaginable blue, the sand is the whitest you will find, so stunning, its hard to believe your eyes.

The sand fine, like powdered sugar and when you walk the white snow-like sand squeaks between your toes.

Lucky Bay is easily one of the worldu2019s whitest and most beautiful beaches.

,All of this beauty is one thing, however we visited Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grand National Park for one reason: Kangaroos.

Lucky Bay is the only place on earth where wild kangaroos actually live on the beach.

The kangaroos are very tame and very used to visitors so its not uncommon for them to curiously hop over to you and allow you to snap a picture.

,The kangaroos live there permanently, so you can visit anytime of the year.

Best to visit in Summer-time when you can enjoy the turquoise ocean.

,Cape Le Grand offers hikes and camping overnight.

Frenchmanu2019s Peak is a popular trail that we walked up, 3km return.

The track leads from the car park, up the gentle east slope of the peak, to the summit.

Features great views over the Park.

Allow 1.

5-2 hours hard walking.

Make sure to pack a water bottle and camera for the spectacular views once you arrive at the top.

,Lucky Bay campsite, usually in operation, comes complete with solar hot showers.

Just imagine waking up to crystal clear water, snow white sand and a kangaroo for company.

We were unlucky this trip as the campsite was closed for renovations.

We camped outside the National Park in the town of Esperance and drive back the 50km inside the National Park to spend the day there.

,We visited Lucky Bay in Esperance while filming Incredible Islands: Animal Interactions u2013 a series about interacting with animals in their own environment u2013 no cages, no zoos, no bars, just wild animal encounters in beautiful surroundings.

Keep posted in this blog for when this series will air.

,The Luck Bay campsite is due to re-open soon.

Its strongly advised to visit when the Luck Bay site is opened to get the best experience and also save driving an hour each way back and forth to your campsite.
