Hi everybody! Back to reality. Back to work/school. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Rewind a couple of weeks back… So, how was your vacation? I bet you enjoyed every single minute of it!

I spent Christmas together with my mom and dad at Boracay, Aklan. Every Christmas our whole family goes on vacation but last year, it was impossible for the whole fam to join.

First, the flight. Our airline was Cebu Pacific, Manila – Caticlan; departure: 2:40pm. To make the long story short, our flight was 3 hours delayed and instead of landing at Caticlan Airport, we landed here:

Kalibo Airport

So we still have to take a 2-hour bus ride to reach Caticlan, board a boat going to Boracay then ride a tricycle going to the beach. We were delayed for a total of 6 hours!

We shopped on the first day. There are lots of familiar, as well as native shops, at Boracay. They have “D’ Mall” where the branded and familiar shops are, and “D’ Talipapa” where the stores of most local entrepreneurs are. There are also many sidewalk vendors and local people who walk around selling souvenirs and accessories. We did some a lot of “shop till you drop” – ing.

We did some island hopping but the weather was bad so instead of checking out 3 islands, we only “hopped” into one.

Crystal Cove Island

Open sea!

This guy is selling coconuts using his makeshift boat!

I was really excited to try parasailing. You’ll ride a parachute and a speedboat will pull it. Too bad the wind was so strong, parasailing was not allowed that time. The waves away from the beach were big and the wind was strong but besides that, the weather was good.

Looks so much fun!

Another activity that we tried was helmet diving. You’ll walk underwater, about 12 feet deep, wearing a 25kg helmet (it’ll get lighter when you’re in the water) which is open by the way, but not to worry because the water will only be up to your shoulders. I tried walking. Maybe that’s how it feels like when walking on the moon! Haha!

We already visited Boracay a couple of years ago. Zorb is a must try! You’ll be harnessed inside a big ball and you’ll go rollin’ down the hill! ๐Ÿ™‚

That's the ball and they're gonna push it down there! (Can't gain this much weight anymore :c)

You can also drive an ATV and tour the island.

Life starts at night. Parties, food, alcohol, fireworks, fire dancers and more!

Do I still have to mention how gorgeous the beach is?

Sorry, can't help but pose! ๐Ÿ™‚

ย Boracay is one of the best beaches in Asia!

I love the place so much, I’m coming back with my friends this year!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
