And since it is 38 Degrees Celsius in Metro Manila, it is imperative to hit the beach. And what can be the most mainstream of all beaches? BORACAY!!!
And who to beach with? THE SG!!! I call this awesome group the Spice Girls cause they are all fab like that. Official hashtag of the trip: #SGxLaBoracay2013
The SG was divided into two groups going to that famous White Beach. The first group: Joanna, Arven, Paul, Nash and Jena. They stayed in Boracay for a week and were all punished with/at work after. HEHEHEHEHEHE. They arrived 3 or 4 days earlier than us (the second group). The second group: Ericka, Edward, Jona and Ana (Edward is not part of the SG, he is my plus one hihi). We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. We arrived May 3 at 7ish at night. We stayed at Beach Comber Resort, Station 1. We were just in time for the Labor Day Weekend aka LaBoracay 2013.
Day 1: Tibraz + Juice Bar
Jona, Ana, Edward and I arrived Friday night, May 3. The first thing we did was to…*drum roll please* eat. We chose Tibraz for our dinner. It was relatively affordable though if you are on a tight budget, it was not at all that worth it. You could’ve eaten somewhere cheaper that would probably have the same effect of making you full.
Next stop, we headed to the nightlife. The truth was, I really did not want to go. My tolerance for puyat was not really that high anymore. I have to admit that I am good as a lola when it comes to puyatan. I could not keep up with my awesome friends with their nighttime activities. But I went because I wanted to show off. Kidding. I wanted to try it out with Edward because we have never done this before together. In the end, we headed back to our hotel earlier than everybody else. HILONG HILO ako sa 10% Bacardi and 90% Sprite mixed drink. WHAT THE HELL.
Day 2: Water activities + Sunset Party + Jonah’s + KO
We got a good deal with the fun water activities care of Kuya Loy. If you want a good deal, contact Kuya Loy here: 0946 709 8553. With just a number of four (4) heads plus paying only Php 2,800 each, we got to experience not only water but as well as land activities. Our package includes: Island Hopping, Helmet Diving, Fly Fish, Zorb, ATV (Day 3) and Parasailing (Day 3).
Island Hopping (+ Snorkelling)
Lunch Break (at Cafe del Mar)
On a side note…
I just want to build up Kuya Loy more. Kuya Loy was one hell of a photographer. He would ask us to do jump shots and he even took two of my favorite pictures among the pictures we had in Boracay (Pang Pre Nup na ‘to). HEHEHEHEHE!!! But this was all made possible because of Joanna Armendez’ underwater camera. Love you girl.
With all these activities, I did not want to go to another beach party. But I was sure glad I dragged myself into it. Sunset Party was crazy. Everyone was half naked and everyone’s sweating and dancing and drinking and not giving a shit (+ trying to hook up). I did not need to hook up cause I’ve got the hook up of my life by my side (AWWW EDWAAAARD!!!!!). There were celebrities and models cocooned with their own group as we were. And I saw how normal they were all too like us. After we put our group back together, we headed to the famous Jonah’s! It was heaven.
Day 3: Activities + Paraw + Sunset Pictorial
I wanted to note that after our Jonah’s dinner, immediately after reaching our room, I was KO-ed. I could not believe I even missed brushing my teeth. TMI. EWWWW. I went straight to dreamland and dreamt away, too far away. Day 3 was the tamest of all days because nobody bothered to drink anymore. Some took in their me-times but the foursome went on to more land/water activities.
