When Smart invited me to Boracay to "Live All Out" I was scared that it will be about activities and sports. And so I warned Kim and Abbie ala Fat Amy, "Don't put me in for cardio." Besides, it was labor day weekend and I just wanted to have fun under the sun. Can you blame me? :)
But I was so relieved that the invitation was MY version of Live All Out.
Lounging in the beach, playing in the sand, drinking mojitos, pigging out on seafood and steak. But as expected, Smart had tons of activities for all people lucky enough to be there that weekend. Seeing as how people were these doing such daring things, I thought why not do one as well!
Like make sand angels! Bloggers were dared by Smart twitter followers to do some pretty awesome stuff and we all got to participate. At first, I wasn't keen on doing it but after seeing how much fun my fellow bloggers had, I got excited. And so instead of making sand angels... I became a bee!! :) I was so game to win, I flapped my arms like crazy ! So if you were watching the livestream, I'm sure you got to see how much I was making a fool of myself. LOL!
So to whoever tweeted that dare,
congrats! You just took me out of my shell and made me truly Live All Out! And because of that I got to swim on the pristine waters of Boracay! With the numbers of activities in Boracay, you'd be surprise that I barely get to enjoy the beach..
And who could blame me when our digs has built-in pool access. Thanks to lovely and very meticulous peeps of Smart, they made sure that we live all out every minute spent in Boracay that they booked us a room in Boracay Garden's newest wing! Formerly Seraph hotel, Boracay Garden is located in Station 2, just right where everything is (D'Mall, parties, great restos) but quiet and private enough when I chose to stay one on our first night enjoyed enjoyed Boracay the best way I know how... swimming in between sips from my glass of mojito.
Yes, I can say that at that certain point.. I lived. I didn't feel like a robot that I am when I'm at work. I can feel the breeze tingling my skin and the gentle wave of water against my legs..
Good thing I had my camera with me that time so I got to take a few photos of it.. but it doesn't compare to what I saw. You should have been there.
Living all out is not letting any moment pass and recognizing those that are worth keeping. As much as I like to party, I like the small moments in between that I got to see friends, dance to my ultimate fave song (thanks to the hot DJ Callum) and of course, shots with friends. It's the details in between when you sing-a-long with a friend and you laugh how much you know the lyrics.
I'm so glad that I was game for anything and didn't let my awkward age stop me from partying and enjoying the night with friends. In the end, I got to meet awesome people that I enjoy talking to and can't wait to bond with more now that I'm back in Manila.
I always tell that you should be more confident, more loving and easy on yourself. With how much this blog is all about beauty, I hope I tell you enough that beauty is living your life to the fullest and not letting anything get in the way. Not when a person tells you that red lipstick doesn't suit you or that you're too vain for putting on makeup.
