Let’s face it, the moment i first set foot in this beautiful (and still an understatement) tiny island, i knew that i have fallen truly,madly and deeply in love with it. i want to make love with Boracay!
i dont know why, the beaches in Bantayan Island, Siquijor and Bohol could actually equal to Boracay’s but there is this something, something that is beyond words why i cant stop falling for this gem.
its been 2 years since my last visit in Boracay and i have been itching to go back this summer of 1012. fingers crossed, sana matuloy. to those buddies and friends whom i have been relentlessly making ‘kulit’ to start planning for the trip, man lets do this, PLEASE!!
so here are some stuff i did in Boracay over the few times i have been there from the very first trip in 2005 with family up to the last one in 2009 with the backstage boys. (warning: photo overload below)
Have that inexplicable feeling of peace and quiet while watching Boracay’s famous sunset.
photographing the setting sun in 2008
muni muni while waiting for that sunset...
A 2005 photo. my very first glimpse of that Boracay sunset
stroll along its 4km stretch fine and polvoron like white sand beach
there are soo many things one can see (intentionally and unintentionally) when strolling in boracay beach front
during off peak and stormy weather, Boracay beach front looks like this (2009 photo)
have a photo op at the iconic Boracay Regency beach resort (epic fail if you havent taken your photo in Boracay Regency the very first time you went to Boracay)
when we were first timers lol
have a Photo op at another ‘icon’ in Boracay – FRIDAY’s
im not really sure if FRIDAY's is till existing now...
have a photo op at the famous sand castles and sand designs (ung may mga kandila sa ilalim). then w/out any hesitation donate 20 PESOS (despite the the presence of a few dollars and hundred pesos in the donation box.
insert in the to do list in boracay : DESTROY sand castles lol. just pay for it first.
watch over pamangkins and other kiddies in the family while relaxing on the beach…
challenge if all boys pamangkin mo...
put the kids to sleep early to ensure the boracay nightlife is not jeopardized.
its inevitable, they will definitely ask you to buy them toys they can play with at the beach
watch other’s back. woot!
enjoy the equally famous Jonah’s shakes while ‘watching other’s backs’
pardon me on the photo, i dont have any other photos of Jonah's shake yet...urg.
just chill while sun bathing and ‘watching other’s backs’
the clear blue boracay skies during summer
konti na lang may tan lines na!
have a 365 degree look around the whole island of Boracay through its highest point and get in touch (literally) with a Bat. thanks to the ATV and the island tour
the ATV oh yeah!
befriending the snob bat.
if your lucky, watch a beach front wedding…
a non-showbiz wedding but i saw toni,mariel and bianca...who could the couple be
on artista paparazzi shots, and stalking them
meet kat de castro, dont ask who among the showbiz pipz i took paparrazi photos with...ang jologs kasi.
Watersports overload…and at dirt cheap price during off peak.
first time jet skier
the banana boat ...the boring banana boat, naks!
the flyfish...ANG LUFEEEETTTT!!!!
the best among all, parasail! idol!
Underwater helmet...little mermaid mode nyahaha!
experience the LIFE in Boracay’s night life
before lambasting one's self in the clubs of Boracay, its a must to check the reggae bars first.
after reggae sessions, chill out naman pa tipsy at hey jude's
the beach front and gentext bean bags (gentext talaga? lol) at cocomangas, the USED to be Cocomangas
this is what you call 'lets morning the night' at guilly's island...
rubbed the elbows of the original 'in' crowd (one major instituition parties during labor day in Boracay)
sa Boracay lang ako naka attend ng FREE and OPEN bar until 5am party. kaya ayan borlogs
beyond anything else, what made the whole Boracay experience well worth it was the people whom i was it. its more memorable and more happier when your w/ people you treasure.
the family that island hops together, gets sea sick together...
the backstage boys w/ their backs being watched
the bestes buddies in the world (where's ivan?)
and yeah i almost forgot the ‘maksaysayang’ Jump Shot
up up and away
