Last two days of the unplanned beach trip

I should be blogging about my recent El Nido vacation, but I intend to cross off one beach post before I do. It was only recently that I remembered I have not finished blogging about my Boracay trip (Days 1 and 2 of the unplanned beach trip & Boracay in Holga 120CFN).

Covering like such because the sun kind of hurt my skin

On the second to the last day in my Boracay trip, we went to Fairways and Bluewater for breakfast and golf. Only one from our group was into golf, but everyone else didn’t mind since they also wanted to try playing including me.

Golf isn’t for me. I didn’t enjoy it as much, but I enjoyed doing “Fast & Furious” with the golf cart. I almost gave the caddy a heart attack. XD

After golf, we headed back to our resort to rest for a bit before we went helmet diving.

Helmet diving time

Heavy shit

The helmet diving activity includes holding starfishes, walking around very very few corals, and feeding fishies. The guide will take pictures and videos of you and getting a copy of those requires an additional fee. I don’t know if it’s still the same now. My pictures from the activity will be uploaded soon and most likely only in Instagram. πŸ˜‰

In the afternoon, we headed to Boracay West Cove (known to be Pacquiao’s resort) for snacks and to catch the sunset.

Not good they built on coral reefs, but I must admit the view from the resort was spectacular.

There’s a consumable entrance fee in Boracay West Cove. Because we were many, we had a feast for snack. Too much that we even had to doggie bag. After the sunset and heavy snack, our group decided to walk the White Beach stretch.

There’s a super buff guy somewhere in the picture…

… Who I have a picture wiht. Blurry though so I am not posting. I also had this fugly smile on my face and gawd his arms were around me.

We did a bit of shopping and coffee to cap the night. While we waited for our van to return to the resort, I had an incident with a group of Asian old men who got angry at me for a reason I seriously don’t know. They spoke to me in whatever their language was. I’m very sure they are not Japanese or Korean. I only stared back because it was stupid of them to try to argue with me in their language or dialect or whatevs.

Anyway, here are very few pics on our last day in Boracay. I exhausted myself from taking a lot of pictures. XD

Seeing this made me realize I didn’t crop my pictures (maybe not properly)

Whew! So many pictures. You can view the whole digital photos set here.

I did enjoy Boracay. There were a lot to see and do. But it was an expensive beach trip probably because of what the group chose to do. The beach activities are expensive because I can already do one or two island hopping trips in Coron or El Nido with the rates. The island hopping trip in Coron is a boat rate even, not per person. I dislike there were so many people. Although it is fun to party, I prefer to spend a relaxin’ and chillin’ night by the beach listening to reggae instead of club music which I heard more around the beach than the former. Peeps who want to party by the beach will like Boracay. Maybe I was at the wrong part of island or it is really not my place.

Hm, I guess there’s an advantage to doing very late posts. πŸ˜› I can’t believe though that I now have to tag this “flashback 2011.”
