Boracay Island '08 (WARNING! ULTRA picture heavy post )

THIS IS A HEAVY PICTURE POST!
MAINLY, you’ll see evidence of my vainness. :)
I’m not great with the camera so there is no fabulous views here but enough to give you an idea that BORACAY spells H-E-A-V-E-N.

As expected, our stay in Boracay Island is again the best. There isn't much too complain (except my sunburn and I am no sooooo dark/tanned!! I will be drinking MET starting today.

DEAR GOD blessed us with a wonderful Sunny weather. The people who treated us with utmost courtesy, we didn't feel discriminated or unimportant. Rather, we felt like a couple of semi-royalties. The food is a gastronomical experience. I definitely recommend Seabreeze Resto Buffet from Boracay Regency (you get your money's worth) and Noemi's paluto @ Puka Island. If you want some great Italian food, Aria is a great resto. The Japanese/Korean girls were gawking at my tenderloin wrap with mozzarella and ham. :) We didn't try the restos at D'mall (an open shopping and foodcourt) coz it was just sooo hot inside with less air coming from the beach.

The activities were fun. We first tried the ATV (all-terrain vehicle). Boy is it heavy!!! And boy is it hard for someone who never tried any motor vehicle or bicycle even. but after awhile, you'll get use to it. You’ll go up Mt. Luho, the highest peak in Boracay. :) Honestly, it was tiring but worth every sweat and aching muscle. Going down was fun coz I was pretty used to navigating. We also visited the butterfly Farm of Fairways and Bluewater. :)
I would try ATV again next time. :) I definitely will!

The island hopping is a must for every Boracay visitor. You'll see the crocodile island, go and visit Crystal Cove and its caves, go snorkeling and feed the cute little fishes, eat fresh seafood (best crab I’ve ever eaten so far) and shop for cheap genuine pearls and precious stones. the boyfriend got me a southsea pearl necklace and earrings! Awww! They do accept credit cards for the pearls which I must say is a plus. I also got some souvenirs here for the boyfie's sisters. :)

Of course, one mustn’t forgo not getting body art like henna or glimmer tattoo. In my case I got both. They also offer hair braiding but I think it’s too much for me.
Also get a relaxing massage from the manangs for about Php200 to Php300($5 approx.) for full body massage. If you prefer bit privacy, try Pallaso Spa located at Boracay Peninsula. I can vouch for their signature massage that cost us Php499 ($7-8 approx.)

If you're in for a late snack, try the sidewalk inihaw(grillery) for cheap price. They have dried fish, b-b-q, isaw and my fave Jumbo Hot Dog! Comes in sweet and spicy variant, our 3 jumbo hotdogs is just P120 ($2.50 approx)

Try also Bombom Bar located at Station 2 near Red Coconut, a good distance away from Boracay Regency. J They offer a lot of cocktails and great reggae music. Just the right beat for the Island.

As for our hotel, Boracay Regency boasts of 3 pools. One with an bar that serves great cocktail that got me a little tipsy (melon something). Its one of the biggest hotel/resort in Boracay with great staff and great food! For 4 days and 3 nights, we were well fed, our room kept tidy and transfer to and fro were very well arranged.

We love Boracay so much that we extended our trip for another day. We played around the beach. We swam on the clear blue water and enjoyed the white sand. We had drinks and pizza brought to us from one of Boracay regency's many Restos. We lounged till we were toasted! Oh boy we were toasted. I'm sooo dark and my sunburn itches like crazy. But no regrets! Me loves Boracay and the Island sun.

This is one fabulous trip. And it wouldn’t be possible if I don’t have a generous boyfriend who may not like me buying a lot of make-ups and clothes… but pretty much gives me what I need… a relaxing and invigorating vacation.
