So this is my second time in Boracay, I was there with my family last July 2011 and now I went back there with my BF this time, same month as before… my birthday month. :p
We bought plane tickets last March for ZestAir to Kalibo and ain’t it funny how we booked so early because we just decided to spend my birthday there for regular priced tickets! (we didn’t even avail the promos for some odd reason. :P) Then something happened a few days, just a few days before our flight, I have just found out that ZestAir and Air Asia had some negotiations regarding buying the airline or whatever I don’t care! I’ve checked the ZestAir website and what happened was, it automatically directed me to Air Asia and there I checked the date of our flight and holy molly! There it was, the hours of the flights changed and I have no idea what the friggin’ heck was happening, so I decided to call their hotline numbers and found out that the hours of our flights changed, they moved it to their last flights of the day and I was pissed that they didn’t even emailed, called or just text their customers about the changes. What might have happened if we checked in on what-is-supposed-to-be-our-scheduled-flight when we didn’t even know it was moved? I will be really very much upset. So good thing I checked it on their website and we managed to make the times of our flights the most convenient to us compared to the “new schedules” they gave us. Sigh. Very bad customer service I should say.
For two days and two nights we stayed at Tan’s Guesthouse yet again this was also the same place where me and my family stayed last time with a discount because of the rainy season (yes, it is so much cheaper in off peak seasons like this).
We went to Puka Shell Beach, and all I can say is, that is the most beautiful beach that I’ve seen in my life hehehe, no… seriously… It was indeed the most beautiful for me. The sand is not that pulverized compared to the main beach of Boracay but the spectacular view and it’s almost deserted… also compared to the main beach… if you want to go somewhere peaceful away from the loud music and partying and the crowded people,and you prefer to just enjoy the sunset, I would definitely have you try to visit this beach, it’s a bit far from the main beach, we traveled there via the tricycle for 150php for special trip.
The next day, BF and i really planned to try parasailing… for 2800php, we chose the Diamond parasailing, for some reason it’s called diamond maybe because the logo in the balloon is Superman’s logo is diamond, I don’t know heheh, it was a wild guess. 😛
That same day we tried the Buggy car to Mt. Luho for 800php. BF wants to try this so yeahh he drove us up to the mountain as I was just in the passenger seat 🙂 And when we reached the top most part of the Mt. Luho you will see the full view of the whole island in 360degrees. The entrance fee in Mt. Luho is 100php per head, it was breathtaking!
Again, that same day we looked for the Real Coffee & Tea Cafe for their famous calamansi muffin! It is located in Station 1 and is quite hidden along a narrow pathway so you better scan your eyes on the stores and restaurants.
The overpriced McDonalds.
For an early evening stroll in the beach we decided to try the also famous Jonah’s Fruitshake and Restaurant. One word for my Banana Milk shake. “Heavenly.” A must try!
On our way home, we had a delayed flight back to MNL and i was surprised that BF bought me a cake for my birthday, so instead of being all pissed about having to wait for hours it was replaced by kilig and sweetness ehehhe.
So there goes my unforgettable vacation in Boracay. 😀
