Halu-halo at Payag




It was one of those several trips that I enjoyed a lot. It’s not because of any grandeur or anything fantastic. It’s just because this trip in particular, though not stress-free, made me feel good about myself.

When I arrived at the terminal, I know that he’s already there. I was not sure how long, but I know that his eyes were only searching for me among the arriving crowds. Well, that’s what my instinct told me.

It’s actually a great feeling that once in a while you give yourself a chance to escape from the tedious bustles of the city and relax in the comforting lull of the suburban. And I just realized that it’s really not that bad to lie every now and then. I mean lying sometimes can make things more bearable. But this doesn’t mean that I’m advising anyone to do a such.

Anyways, I spent my weekend critiquing NBA 2K9 and comparing it to the previous releases. Though I rarely play such kind of PC game, but I’m always a keen observer. After the day that I arrived, we went to the theater and watched Madagascar 2 and had our lunch at KFC. And late in the afternoon, I accompanied him with his friends to play basketball. During the evening, we had our late dinner at Payag. And there, I had my very first try of their special halu-halo.

Payag is actually a restaurant inside a two-storey structure. It is a preserved old house that was instyle during the Spanish era. The place has a very historical ambiance with antique-like wooden tables and chairs and low lightings. It was like you’re stepping to another era once you entered their guarded door. Chicken is actually their specialty. And you should not miss their special halu-halo which is way cheaper than Chowking’s, but yummier.

Payag’s halu-halo is served in a coconut shell with all its meat on it and its juice is served along with it. I was quite amazed because I know it would cause more when it’s served here in Cebu. There’s really an advantage in living in a suburban area compared to living in the city.
