Back to my kind of Paradise (Boracay)

Missed going to Boracay last year for some previous issues, but I’m glad to be finally able to go back to this island again. It always brings me lots of memories, and definitely always has been a place for me to relax and spend some time forgetting everything back here in the city.

I LOVE the beach despite my incapacity to swim, and my voluntary rejection to too much sunlight. Surprisingly this time I wasn’t too conscious about the heat hence HELLO sunburn!

This year is special though, because I get to spend it with my childhood bestie, Jaq! We also went with some of her Orange County (OC) friends who were visiting the Philippines after so many years of being abroad.

This was the first time I was meeting the whole crew, and upon arrival we all ended up having our first round of drinks at Nigi Nigi Nu Noos. This was where I met (From L-R) Daisy, Karen and Lori. We were also accompanied by Lori’s husband Ben and friend Bryan.

What happened during that first night was history haha! I don’t even have much photos to share – read between the lines on what happened.

Finally a photo with Ben and Bry. Shots!!!

After pub crawling we went to watch the ladyboys do their thing with fire. It was amazing. I didn’t mind at all that they were gay guys. I noticed that the men audience were actually enjoying themselves as well. This particular ladyboy caught my attention. He’s too cute to be gay!

Eye candy, right? haha

Our third day was the busiest, as the crew went island hopping!

On our last day, Jaq and I just spent some alone time together buying her pasalubong to kids and yayas, had a calamansi muffin at Real Coffee, sipped some refreshing fruitshakes from Jonah’s, and went sunbathing for our last hour.
