After a movie at BQ Mall cinema, I usually stop by Rene's to enjoy a cup of peppermint tea and a stick of Minor Swiss chocolate. Indeed, a delicious combination; soothing and invigorating to boot.
According to some experts, chocol
ate can boost our mood, and eating it helps our body release energy-boosting, "feel good" endorphins. As for the peppermint tea, supposedly, it helps with digestion and is useful for treating an upset stomach.
Panglao Island boasts a number of Swiss- and German-owned hotels and cafes; hence, you'll find some fine chocolates in their establishments. My all-time favorite remains to be Godiva Dark Truffle chocolates. Last I found a box of it was at the duty free shop in Paranaque, it costs about 50 dollars a box.
