Playing Tourist in the City

Last March I gifted my B with Polaroid coupons and a hotel getaway is one of them. And since I recently quit my day job (more on that story soon), a hotel getaway sounds even more enticing.

My favorite part of staying at a nice hotel is their buffet breakfast — this time we are eating at HEAT restaurant.

Our little escape offered me to play tourist, even just for a day. I feel sparkling again!

Since I am trying to watch what I eat, I try to gear towards healthy options or alternatives than my usual favorites. And with everyone turning health conscious, it won’t be hard to spot a fruit juice bar that sprouted all over the metro. We passed by Big Chill at Shangri-La mall and craved for the colorful fruit smoothie! Big Chill uses fresh cut fruits like avocado (seasonal), watermelon, grapes and ripe mango.

Other fruits are banana, dalanghita (seasonal), green mango, kiwi, lychee (B’s ultimate fave), melon (seasonal), pineapple and strawberry (seasonal).

They make fruit shakes, fruit smoothies or just plain fruit juices among others.
