This space has been left vacant for a period, through these months, I have gone from Single to Married. Do things change after marriage? I guess No. We are still happy, we are still the same person, except, we became more responsible through our thoughts and our words. So we went on a short vacation to Boracay after wedding, the type generally known as ‘Honeymoon’. It’s a silly term I think, because all vacations with your boyfriend / husband has got to be that honey. Isnt it? I didnt really like people spamming that term on me: “Oh, so how was your Honey Moon!?”… Argh, if it was our First Vacation in our Entire Life, ok, Honey Moon was over the moon, else, what do you expect? Nevermind, let me share some nice pictures of a little pristine island somewhere southern of Manila – Philippines.
The tranquility and sweetness of Boracay is truly worth that intricate transfer from one Island (Singapore) to another. There are several ways to get to Boracay, here’s one:
– Board http://www.tigerairways.com from Singapore – Kalibo Airport( Yes, the airport at Boracay)
– Book a coach from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan Jetty (We use http://southwesttoursboracay.com), the little ticket will oversee both your land to boat transfer with all the taxes included.
– Get onto a boat on their azure water, you are just 15-20 minutes away from that wonderland.
Sweep you off with this to begin!
And aside from bikini watching, there are some activities which are essential to try before we indulge our evening with seafood, alcohol, juice, more seafood, alcohol, juice… and you can guess.
Helmet Diving! Oh My Gawd. This is the highlight amongst all the activities that we tried. Clear blue hue, that is exactly what we need. We cannot get enough of mother nature, we gotta dig deeper into the ocean and walk the bed. Can’t snorkel, can’t dive, no problem. We literally breathe through our nose in this epic helmet (remembering those science lab days in school where we learn the art of oxygen in water).
We fed the fishes with some bread and that is how our picture look so perfect, photobomb by these beautiful coral fishes.
For a bird’s eye view of Boracay, Parasail. For now, just a snippet of the overjoyed me. Else, ATV up to Mt Luho, the highest point on this island for a panaromic view like this:
Crystal Cave: Part of the island hop, we step foot into this little space- Crystal Cave. Honestly, I am not sure why Crystal, but all I was praying :”Dear God, protect me from anything like bats or insects living in here “.
I think crystal might refer to the clear cool shades of water that surround this area, probably why the name. There were small little fishes playing around the shallow bed and it really tickles. As the island hop should continue, yes we snorkel and further out into the water, i was stung by Jelly. I love Jelly, till they came after me. With lotsa regrets and pain, we decided to return to our hotel and attend to those swollen bubbles from the sting. Thankfully, the lifeguard, from the hotel (Astoria) we stayed in, came with the native concotion, I washed the wound with some warm vinegar and rubbed more calamansi on them. (PS: The naughty jellyfishes stung my butt, arms and legs, not cool)
In anyways, i think i burnt a whopping 1000 calories and more. Haha.
Take a break:
