I miss out-of-town trips, but when I was asked to go to Boracay I had second thoughts just because that place is over-hyped. I would rather visit London and stay at one of Blackpool hotels for vacation. But ‘rents made me go which, in the end, I’m glad they did.
I stayed in Boracay around mid-July for four days and three nights. It was originally just three days and two nights, but I decided to make myself poorer. LOL This post will cover the first and second days only as it will get image-heavy. You’ve been warned! 😛
My plane to Kalibo was AirPhil Express. That’s my first time with that airline. It’s not so bad, but I find PAL comfier. Since my departure time was just right after lunch time and the local flight doesn’t have food, so I had to eat out. I tried Raku Hokkaido Ramen House’s Curry Tonkatsu. It wasn’t bad, but I should have ordered something else. I think the ginger was too strong.
First time I’ve traveled looking all girly. 🙂 The folks I traveled with thought I was only 18 years old and they wouldn’t even accept the fact that I’m lot older than that. LOL
Second stop was Jollibee for a quick (and free) snack 😀
So at Boracay, we stayed at Orinda Resorts. It’s a very nice, humble resort with free wifi. Since it was already dark to take pictures of the resort, here’s a picture of angel clams instead.
On the second day of the trip, honestly, I didn’t feel all excited like how I felt when I went to Panglao. But that changed when I went swimming and island hopping. I thought it’s best to be excited of what could possibly happen in the trip. 🙂
First activity is touring the island/island hopping.
Boat used for the island hopping
And, Manny Pacquiao’s resort:
In the late afternoon, I thought I’d try the banana boat.
Guess who/what I took a picture of. Hrhr~
During the ride, I saw a lot of floating garbage on one part of the island. I saw plastic containers and bags in variety of colors. I didn’t have a camera, so I have no proof. I’m not sure if the others on the banana boat saw it too. I hope concerned locals saw and collected them. Anyway, we finished the night with dinner at Shangri-La Boracay. I’m rich like that. LULz~
How could I forget the dessert?
I ate so much that I could hardly breathe and I thought I was going to barf. But smoking while so full feels great.
Out of the many trips I had, I still never learn — I always pack up at the last minute and end up forgetting one or two things. But I only forgot one this time and that’s my BB Cream. It’s just a cream, but it’s essential! XD;;
