Boracay Bliss Experience at Mandala Spa Boracay

Boracay Bliss Treatment Package

Hey hey hey! Almost 2 months from my short vacation in the Philippines, oh my! One of my favourite part during my holiday was the post I wrote about my trip to Boracay. I guess I never really moved on from being an island girl after all, ha!

Philippines Day 4, 5, and 6 - Boracay Island

Walking down the shores of Boracay Island

Hello Earth! Too busy for the past few weeks and this was the only time I was able to touch my blog. A continuation of the trip I had a month ago, guess where the itchy feet took me? To my island home Boracay! 3days and 2nights yet I have crossed out a few things from my bucket list already!

This is just one of the few reasons of my getting extremely busy just before the plane took off.

Anne and Fil were my foster parents in Boracay. They started as best of friends and I witnessed how both fell for each other (sweet!). Getting Dad (Fil) to say yes on this shoot was never a hassle - I have always been his favourite kid in town and he just can't resist my annoyingly cute tantrums. I'm surely gonna miss these two. Enjoy the set!


Hello BER-acay!



We bid goodbye to the August rush last Saturday, I thought it was really my month. Surprisingly, the last day of the rush was so amazing I almost forgot that the first quarter of the month was a struggle - we see things we are not supposed to see and we hear things we don't want to hear. Plans change but moving forward, we all get better and we all get fine, don't we?



I spent the rest of my afternoon with these girls who I find really amazing. One of them said, "For you to survive the island, you have to be outrageously insane". It hit me and geez, I felt proud being sanely insane at the same time time.



Brace yourself with one of the cutest tattoo I have seen on a woman's body. This is her own handwriting converted to a tattoo by the way.




One refreshing water melon shake, coming up! This made my day so much better!






Another activity that you should try when in Boracay is Frisbee.  The locals are so into it, the playground is the famous white beach. And since most accommodations here in Boracay (especially the ones situated at the beachfront) are already complying with the City Ordinance to move their facilities a few meters from the shore, this would mean more space to run and play. Yey!



On another note, Boracay is also famous for wedding proposals. Three Paraw boats maneuvered altogether with MARRY ME BABE sign. We saw one last week.

Can you prolly guess who among the 2 couples are just about to ring the bell soon? Haha!


My two faves as of this date: the bikini top from the room mate and THE precious thing which made my heart super giddy I palpitated and died in one corner. Funny how people surprise you just the way you like it. Aha, aha~



I bid August goodbye, thanks for the memories just like a Fall Out Boy song. I'm bound to spend my September afternoons watching sunset with these girls:



To more isla adventures, hello BER is here!

Joy with a C.

Boracay Island Life - April and May Events

Ola again from the isla!

You might have been wondering what's going on in Boracay as you haven't seen any updates here. Summer is indeed a busy season in Boracay: a lot of events have happened which made me realize that my life is not just all about the online world (well, sometimes I need to check Facebook once in awhile to know who's in the island from my circle of trusts). We all need to go out, meet people and enjoy the outdoor activities. Any way, here's to share the highlights of my April and May events:


Hanging out with these girls somewhat made me love the outdoors more. Another advantage of being with them is I get to learn a li'l bit of their language. The first word that I learned - SAMOK.

 I'm actually thinking of studying a new sport which led me to this kite surfing shop:




Pinas Kite Surfing Center is offering kite boarding lessons at a very reasonable rate so if interested, you may contact them here. I'm torn between kite surfing and diving, really.

First Quarter Of My Island Life

Hello everyone!


A few more days and I'm just about to celebrate my 3rd month living here on the island (hooray!). I've been trying my best to keep up with my blogging duties but it seems that my laptop doesn't want to cooperate. Argh. I really need to get a new one - the kind that can handle the latest version of Photoshop (a CS6 or CS5 maybe) and will allow me to do more artworks for my "supposedly" side job. *sigh* Laptop fail.
