A Quick Bite in Cabalen Restaurant at Sm City Pampanga

I was on a quick visit in Pampanga since my flight from Caticlan/Boracay is landing at Clark Airport. I messaged my friend Joshua who's living in Lubao, an hour from San Fernando to meet me up in Sm City to have lunch before I headed to Manila.

A day before my flight I called the restaurant to make a reservation since Cabalen is one of the pocket friendly buffet at 298+ in the area sometime they get full and other customer need to wait to be seated. 

While waiting for my friend to arrive, I decided to roam around to check the location of Cabalen inside the mall. I got lost because the Mall is quite big. The location of the restaurant is located in the back part.

When Josh arrived, we headed right away to Cabalen because when 12nn or before the restaurant will get full as I experienced in the other branch. 
Upon arrival I asked the receptionist on my reservation, after confirming my name, she assisted us in our reserved table. Josh and I got our plate and be able to choose from the different menu for the day, Of course the reason I am coming back in Cabalen all over again that because of their Kare-Kare is one of the favorite dishes and fried Kang-Kong.

The staffs are well-trained it comes to guest relation and very attentive to their customer needs, they making sure that everything is okay. One thing I noticed the cleanliness of the buffet table are well-maintained. 

After the 2-round I already felt that I'm full. I went to the dessert station to get a glass of Halo-Halo (I hope they will change to a bigger glass for Halo-Halo) and seasonal fruits. 
I left the place with smile because first I'm full and satisfied to their service, and the quality of the food being served to us.

A Chartered Flight of Philippine Airlines | PR 2242 - Cebu to Kalibo

In the past few years, I’ve been into Philippines Airlines flight across the Philippines, but this is the memorable one, a flight that I’ve never ever expected in my whole travel career.
Back then when I was planning my Zamboanga, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi travels, I was thinking to escape Manila as my transit airport instead I do use Davao on my onward flight to Zamboanga from Iloilo and Cebu as my return flight to Kalibo. I rush myself going to the airport from Cebu City, I miss the 6:40 pm schedule of Mybus going to Mactan-Cebu International Airport, I ride to the 7 pm schedule instead, I was a little bit nervous since my scheduled flight is 9 pm, I got worried about the traffic that will cause of missing my flight, but I made it I reach the Airport 1 hour before my flight schedule.
