Beachy, Breezy, Beautiful Boracay

Boracay is simply beautiful!

Witnessing a crystal clear water on a beautiful island has been on my bucket list since forever. Glad I finally had the chance to do so here in Philippine. I bet I will take donkey years to completely blog about this trip, so before my memory fails on me as it always does, I shall start with the first day of the trip.

The first out of 2487 pictures we took for the whole five days trip. Of cos 70% of em are my solo shots :p

The other two couples left a day before us so it was just me and Hariz. We booked a 7.10am flight with Tiger Airways.

Good morning Kalibo Airport.

After immigration, the first thing that comes into mind, just like when I'm in any other country, is to look for a local sim card with a data plan. My friends call me a social freak & I can't agree more.

Unlimited data for seven days for P350 (S$10) !!

To get to Boracay, first we need to get a ride to the Caticlan Ferry Terminal which is a 1 and a half hours drive away. Initially, Hariz and I planned to book the transportation online but boy were we glad we didn't. Cos that would cost twice as much as the prices you can get on the spot here. So if you're planning to go to Boracay, don't you worry about not having your transportation booked beforehand. You can find plenty cheap ones here at the ferry terminal itself.

We got ours at P250, including our ferry tickets. The tickets we saw online would cost us P1500. *gulps*

The view reminds me so much of the one I witnessed at Jogjakarta. How I miss that place so much!

On top of the ferry tickets fee, we also need to pay for both environmental and terminal fee.

Alta Vista de Boracay.

Too bad I didn't take more pictures of the apartment, but it's really lovely!

& I love their swimming pool as well. You can check this place out at 


Both Hariz and I were pretty famished no thanks to the long journey, plus, we have yet to eat anything since we left our homes at 5 in the morning. So all six of us took the free shuttle bus to D'Mall to get some food but before that, we met a guy by the name of Jojo. Apparently this guy had helped Hariz's friends while they were in Boracay so they recommended him to us.

Hi Jojo!

Planning our activities for the next two days.  Really happy with the deal we got - 11 activities for only S$100 per person. Cheap or whuttttt

Jojo's sister brought us to a place called D'Talipapa, which is a must place to go if you love seafood. There is a wet market where you can get your fresh ingredients, then just bring them to any restaurants nearby and let them know how you would like them cooked.

The stuff  here are crazily expensive so do make sure you slash at least 50% from the quoted price.

Sapedek! We love this place so much that we dine in here every single day.

The rest of the nights were spent along the beach and getting souvenirs for family and friends back home. Signing off this entry with our group pic,
