It's a common feeling to miss something so wonderful and pleasurable. How I wish I can go back there. I MISS BORACAY. It's a breath-taking paradise. The beach with its white sand is truly unforgettable.
I am always in awe whenever I see the sky. The clouds are so beautiful.
There it is! Boracay, my love!
We arrived at the Kalibo International Airport after a 45-minute plan ride.
Kalibo is known for the Ati-Atihan Festival which is held annually in January in honor of the Santo Niño (Infant Jesus). The festival consists of street and ritual dances, parades and processions. People wear colorful face paints and outstanding costumes during the event.
After an almost two-hour road trip and a five-minute boat ride we set foot in the island itself. That was really tiring but I totally forgot about my exhaustion when I saw these.
A friend and former officemates lives in one of the houses up there. Yes, it's UP there. We climbed hundred steps or so (I am not exaggerating.) to get to his house. But I tell you, once you're up there the view is awesome! The place is in Station 1 but it's secluded. It's like having the beach front all to yourself. Imagine the feeling of waking up to a beautiful sunrise and then having a hearty breakfast and sipping on fruit juice by the veranda. Aaahhhh, I want that life!
My J and I took a morning walk from Station 1 to Station 2 (where most of the decent restaurants and shops are).
There's a Starbucks store...
and of course, I had my favorite mocha frappuccino. It's 20-pesos more expensive here than in Manila, though.
I can stare at these FOREVER.
Low tide=quiet time.
More people go out and chill by the beach in the late afternoon.
What can be more relaxing than having a bottle of cold beer while watching the beach smile back?
Even dark clouds don't stop people from hanging out and enjoying the scenery.
Oh Boracay, I'm longing for you.
