Boracay

YES! more beach holidays for me.
This time is for company trip to Boracay Island, Philippines.

We took Cebu Pacific Air. It was quite a bad experience traveling with the airline, worst than AirAsia.
 
 Anyway, i am glad after hours of traveling, i've finally had a view of the magnifying Boracay island.
 

 Beautiful isn't it?

at Boracay Airport
 checkout the deep blue sea
we took the boat with extended "wings" to the island
 boarding the boat is quite exciting. one slip, straight into the big pool!
 this is my roommate for the trip, Jayne.

 Our Hotel: Le Soleil De Boracay
its along the beach
located @ station 2.(the beach is divided into 3: station 1,2 & 3)
 Our room

 Small bathroom with shower area..
once we done check-in, we got out to get some food at DeMall.
But drinks first!
Beer is super cheap there, this is only 40peso=: RM3!
more beer.
fyi: beer is cheaper than coconut juice!

our first lunch @ boracay
some pork dish
eggplant
fried prawn
some sourish soup
and squid
after lunch, we just chill out at the beach.

 bridging @ Philippines

some random picture
me & jayne

Astrid join us for some jumping shots.
 
after few attempts, we finally got it!
 never miss a camwhore shot. ;)
 
just before the holiday, i went for manicure & pedicure.
I picked a bright color for the beach and i had little fish sticker on my 2 big toes.
i love bright colors.
 the weather in Boracay is really HOT.
hot & humid
if u want to get a tan, this is the place!
 we ordered a bucket of beer...
i mean what can be better than a ice cold beer?
 the weather was so hot, i couldnt feel much wind but i still managed to fly a kite after running several rounds hahaha...
 
i got this kite from china. it has a chain of 8 mini kites together..
a bit small, but still look pretty in the sky.
 ooh, the massages are cheap too. 350 peso for an hour
& its by the beach.

 the sunset at Boracay

 beautiful sand-art by local boys attracted a lot of tourist gathering around for pictures.
u will need to give some donation to the boys for pictures.
 we gave some small fee for this picture.
later that night, we head back to our hotel for some games & drinks
Day 2. i wore my tube bikini.
 we visited Mary of Boracay.
it was a beautiful site
 Jonah's  is a famous fruitshake stall in Boracay.
there's lots of choices.
i tried mango lemon & mango papaya. i am a person who dont fancy shakes by i find this is quite delicious.
 the water is crystal clear.
can u see the seaweed? hehe
 this dog just remind me of my cherating trip, where 2 friendly dogs followed me around...
so cuteeee
 in the afternoon, we went for helmet diving.
the dive is only about 20mins but its really a cool experience!
 a picture of getting reading to get into the water
 




 
& tadaa.. thats me with the helmet, 15ft below the sea :D
 
helmet diving is very safe. there are few divers to take care of the group
besides taking care of the group, they also help us take pictures.

one of the picture they made us remove our helmet.
i really didn't want to because i hate salt water getting into my eyes
 
 group shot.
cute?
like some underwater astronaut
the thing i like about boracay is that there are loads of beach activities to do: helmet diving, cliff diving, kayaking, sailing, kite boating, banana boat, fly fish, parasailing etc.

I've completed one of the activity i always wanted to do
para-sailing.
it wasnt scary for me, because i'm dont have a height issue.
its in fact very relaxing with the wind blowing at u & getting the bird-eye-view of the island




 
Day2 night, i've got a temporary tattoo on my shoulder & leg
i love the fairy tattoo on my back... maybe i should make it permanent hehe

the guy who did my tattoo
 then we went for pubcrawl.
this chic is so creative, she snip snip snip the pub crawl t-shirt &made it into a toga shirt for me
 another group shot at the first pub
 camwhoring the freshly painted tatoo
 at every pub, u get a tiny shot.
there are total 6pubs to crawl
 & the organizer had some ice-breaker games.
they tied us together & made us find out more about each other.

i met Siv, a Cambodian girl
 and Raph from Australia
it was quite boring, so we left at the 3rd pub.
we had shakey's pizza for supper & we went to the beach for a night "swim".

Day3: took a boat to ariel point


Ariel point is where u do cliff diving/ jumping off the cliff.
there are different height to jump off from: 2meter,3meters, 5meters, 8meters, highest 15meters

 i took the 5meters, but it still hurts because i dont know how to dive.
i got some bruises on my thigh.
 we spent the whole day at Ariel Point.

Last night @ Boracay, we had seafood for dinner.
Seafood there are huge!
check out the size
the food was just soso. 


 & thats about it...summary of 4days 3nights at Boracay.

p/s: its worth the journey! :)

Definitely, Boracay is a beautiful island, a perfection and a paradise. I went last year to le soleil de boracay and it was a wonderful experience especially their excellent accommodations.
