I’m officially back!

Well, not really. I’ve been back in the metro since yesterday but things have been topsy-turvy so I wasn’t able to blog immediately. My Boracay vacation has been great except for the hand injury that my roomie, Mils, has incurred while riding an ATV. On our first official day on the island. Bummer!

This is also the reason why I have to spend hours in the hospital yesterday for her check-up. She fractured two bones on her right hand so she needs to have a cast.

I know that having a hand injury while being in one of the most beautiful beaches can be a sucker but Mils is truly a fighter and managed to turn things around. She still enjoyed her vacation but we both made a pact that we’ll be back. Her, to conquer ATV, and enjoy the beauty of the island without nursing anything broken in her body; and I, to bask more under the sun and discover more hole-in-the-walls in every station of the island. 😉

Nothing’s gonna stop this girl from having fun!

Taking A Break From All These Packing

In a few hours, I will be flying to Kalibo, be on a 2-hr bus ride to Caticlan, and go aboard a bangka (small boat) to Boracay. I’m super excited!

I’m nowhere near done with my packing, but I just would like to leave a quick post before my 5-day hiatus. I know that you should allot at least a day to get your packing done for any travel, but there’s something about cramming that I love. It’s pretty satisfying to know that I can pack efficiently given the limited amount of time, without the ugly bulks in my backpack. If my mom reads this, she’ll roll her eyes.

Anyway, I promise to be back with awesome stories and amazing pictures. 😉

Weekend Getaway

Woke up early today to prep for my weekend getaway this coming, ugh, weekend. We’ll be staying in Boracay for 5 days so that would be what? 5 days of fun, booze, adventures, and pure awesomeness? Yes? YES!!!

This is just my second time to be in Boracay. The last time I went there was  5 or 6 years ago so I’m pretty curious on the many changes that I will see. I’m excited to try out new activities, too — parasailing, cliff diving, sunset ride on a paraw… even a sweet breakfast by the cabana overlooking the beautiful beachfront view.

I’m crossing my fingers that it will not rain, even for a day. I know it’s too much to ask given the bitchy weather here in the Philippines and it’s mid-July already but please rain deities, I’m begging all of you!!!
