Boracay 2015

I visited Boracay this year without really planning to.  A friend bought ticket for me already.  I could not say no. I’ve been here just last year but you know what they say, it’s different everytime.  It was interesting because it’s my first time going there via ferry.  I  always go here via plane and this time, we’re bound to Batangas Port and that took probably about 10 hours.

From Buendia, after shift, we headed straight to Batangas Pier. We left Friday night at 11pm and we arrived in Caticlan around 8am.  Not bad.  We’re there Saturday morning.
Sun is up and the beach is inviting already…

We decided to swim after breakfast and I took them to Puka Beach, this is probably what I like about Boracay.  The serenity and the chance to enjoy the beach without much people.  I never fail to come here whenever I’m in this Island. It’s about 45 minutes from Station 2.  Going there via trike will cost 300.  I just love this Island so much because unlike White Beach, there’s no moss, water is very clear and not very crowded and I think this Island is very intimate. Probably just for me but last year though, I saw Korean couple having their prenuptial photos taken here. I really think they picked a great Island do so.

IMG_1576 The sand isn’t as fine as the one in White Beach though but for me, it’s still the best.

At night, we went to Aplaya Bar and had some Beer and Pizza while watching fire dancers. A bucket of beer here and a pizza is about 500php+ sorry, I can’t really recall 😀

For our second day, we tried some water activities:
– Helmet Diving
– Island Hopping
– Fly Fish

We got all four for 1,400 php per head. It’s all kinda extreme, we needed a heavy breakfast first.  We had one at Casa Pilar, station 3 and I just need to have some Bacon and Eggs 😀

And our boat is waiting…

165 If there’s any other option aside from Shingley to do the Helmet Diving, please grab it.  They’re not very good at taking photos. I am just plain disappointed.  Out of hundreds of photos, I only liked 2. 😦



For the Island Hopping, they cut us off.  We’re suppose to visit 4 Islands but we only did 3. We visited Crocodile Island first and do some snorkelling. DSC_1594

Ice cream in the island. Life saver

And then we had some lunch at Ilig-iligan Island.  Oh, I swear just pack your own lunch if I were you.  It’s expensive and not even worth it.  It’s so bland and the serving is so small.  Imagine we paid a thousand plus for what you see on the table already. IMG_1703

The fun part of the activity was the Fly Fish.  It’s my first time to do it here and it’s so extreme. It’s really fun if you have your gay friend screaming with you.  The way he screamed will make you burst out laughing you’d forget your concentration not to fall down.  But we didn’t, well, except for his cousin who fell out of the water.

After the tiring activity, we grabbed something to eat at Pizza Hut.  Full of carbs, I know.  But mind you, we didn’t consume it all. 😀 😀 😀

And, let me just share the coolest quote ever…11428167_10204100654946727_6683506915648573471_o

And took the opportunity to have some photos while there’s still sunset.

We headed back to our hotel and took a shower and rest a bit.  And then, while walking around the island to find a nice place to hang out that night, my friend bumped into his friend who works at La Reserve.  She wanted to go out with us and she said she will take us to Club Paraw and Summer Place.  That sounded cool and fun. The more the merrier. 😀

It’s always fun meeting new people. 😀

We went home at 6:30am without even knowing there’s sunrise already 😀 11218709_10200580150103727_6568281211180714191_n
And then we slept a bit and checked out at 12noon.
Hangover but it was such a fun night.
We left for Kalibo after that…
I just needed to have some Mango shake to cure the hangover but…

And we also had some Bulalo.. 11204927_10204044596945312_3546269287413331433_nbut to no avail 😀
It was such a fun night.

Oh, Boracay.. I’ll see you again soon…
