LOOK: The “Yaya Meal” Is For Real At The Exclusive Balesin

Maggie Wilson-Consunji posted a status update regarding the ‘yaya meal’ incident.

Apparently it was her mother who wanted to order the same thing as the nanny but unfortunately wasn’t allowed because…it was a ‘yaya’s meal.’ This story originally appeared on Coconuts Manila.

On the morning of Black Saturday, fashion designer and model Maggie Wilson-Consunji posted a status message on Facebook about how Balesin wouldn’t let her son Conner’s yaya order a regular meal. Instead, they offered her a ‘yaya’s meal.’

Two things we’re learning from all this: 1) Not all employers are as generous as the Consunji’s. And 2) we’re thinking the Consunji’s probably got a virginal new trainee as their server that morning.

The ‘yaya meal’ is an off-the-menu option that guests can ask the wait staff about, if they don’t want to pay the full meal price for their helpers.

There are two types of ‘yaya meals’ in Balesin Island. In the main restaurants, members can order the ‘yaya meal’ which is chicken or pork adobo with rice. Alternatively, members can opt for a package that comes when availing of the yaya’s room. Pay an extra P200 a day and yaya can get 3 meals in the employees’ cafeteria.
