Christmas Date with Berkings at Wayfarer Pension House and Ribbs Diner

It was already late, we were hungry and we couldn’t take food out of our mind. Some of our pals have not been home for quite some time and a lot has already improved in Butuan City within 12 months.

What would be a greater way to share this evening with them other than to let them experience something good and new that Butuan has to offer, nothing, right? Without hesitation, we made our way to Wayfarer Pension House and Ribbs Diner at T. Calo Extension, Butuan City.

The place was full-packed by the time we got there. Good thing, they had a beautifully-decorated lobby perfect for a Christmas-themed photo op. It was a great diversionary activity that temporarily made us forget how hungry we were.

Bellardo’s backpack and boyish grin definitely made a statement that drew your eyes to the center, right?

Aside from gathering around for our annual reunion, we also celebrated Jhai’s birthday on this day, Dec. 27, 2012. Ribbs Diner was also very generous to treat Jhai with this delicious chocolate cake.

How did I know it was delicious? Well, you guessed it right. I grabbed a bite from it. Hey, don’t raise your eyebrows at me like I just committed a heinous crime here. In fact, I couldn’t even remember anyone from the group who was able to resist the temptation to taste it. Hehehe! Gladly, Jhai’s not selfish and she happily shared her cake with us.

That joyful moment, this couldn’t be denied by Bellardo’s facial expression here, when you’re finally given a seat at the restaurant after a long wait. Ahhh! At last! It gives you that sense of accomplishment that you’re finally one step closer to your purpose which is to eat a delicious meal with your peers. If it were you, wouldn’t you smile like Bellardo, too?

While everybody else was chit-chatting by the table as they waited for our dinner to be served, I snatched the birthday girl for a quick pictorial by the Christmas tree. Her royal blue dress also complimented the brightly colored Christmas tree. Pretty good to the eyes, isn’t it? What do you think of these pictures? Could it qualify for a classy notebook cover? Oh c’mon, please say yes. Hehehe!

I also like to teach you something new today.

The Stages of Man’s Reaction When Food is Served

1. Immediate Reaction: Beatitude

Obviously, we were happy as a bee, we could smile like a baby.

2. Planning stage: Each person would ask himself: “How will I eat the most without looking like a pig?”

3. Eureka stage: It’s when you’ve finally come up with a plan. What are you waiting for? Attack!

4. Resolution stage: You’ve finished the meal, then what?

You might feel tired, light headed and dizzy from being too full as most of your blood went to your digestive system leaving only a few to supplement oxygen to your brain. Or you might still be alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic as your body has been so good at handling the sudden surge of glucose to maintain homeostasis.

With that look on my face, in what state do you think I was?

Enough with the crazy lesson now and let’s continue with our experience at Ribbs Diner, shall we.

Caught in the act! A stolen shot of someone busy taking pictures of other people. Has this ever happened to you before or were you the one who did the prank? It’s quite entertaining. I’ll do this to someone someday! Hehehe!

What we like about Ribbs Diner

Aside from the good food, free WIFI, free use of electronic outlets to charge our gadgets, great ambience and artistic decors; they had long tables that could accommodate large groups like ours. Although the place was not that spacious, we were happy with our disposition.

They even have hospitable staffs that were thoughtful enough to sing a “Happy Birthday Song” to Jhai as they handed her the free complimentary cake. It really delighted us. Now if you want to impress someone on her birthday? Take her to Ribbs Diner.
