this is kinda like the second part of my trip to boracay, everything outside the beautiful resort i stayed in. so there’s no direct flight to boracay so you have to get on a different flight to kalibo or caticlan – the closest airport to the island. and then take the speedboat in.
then you get on one of these to the beach area.
oh all that fuss. but trust me, it’s totally gonna be worth it.
my innate desire to try new and exciting places tend to climax when i’m travelling because i know i only have so much time. jonah’s fruit shake & snack bar, known for their fruit shakes, was one of the recommendations that had lots of positive reviews by fellow travellers. but to be frank, i didn’t think it was much different than what we can get off the streets in bangkok. but hey, maybe it’s the view that counts right? ;)
cos every girl’s gotta do what she’s gotta do.
even better, the fifty shades of blue!
this was another highly recommended place – real coffee. it’s one of those places that makes you feel at home and have i stayed longer i know i’ll be here everyday for my brunch fix. plus it’s right off the beach. morning cup of coffee and brunch with a sea view? YES PLEASE!
tuna melt. yum yum.
tadaaa- the legendary calamansi muffin with real coffee! i knew right then that this was the reason we were sent here to boracay.
“when in rome, do as the romans do.”
*warning* cuteness overload. look at this cute pups with sand on his nose! arghhh #idie.
you know how i said unless you’ve tried the signature banana milk you can’t say you’ve been to korea? well, this is like that of the philippines – halo halo! no, i’m not greeting you. that’s the name. halo-halo. it’s a very popular filipino dessert with shaved ice, evaporated milk, ice cream, fruits, jello, sweet beans, etc. reminded me a lot of bingsu.
the sad part about travel, i’m sure all my fellow travellers can relate, is that it’s bound to come to an end sooner or later. as much as we didn’t want to go back, reality was waiting for us back home. so in hopes to prolong our trip even by bit and to see a little more of the philippines we went to the mall of asia near central business park (i believe it was the closet mall to the airport).
we shopped around a bit and decided that it was only acceptable to end our trip with something we didn’t have back at home in bangkok. t.g.i. fridays!
i don’t even remember the name of the food i got but all i remember is that my stomach died of all that cheese.
annieways, this post is slightly outdated but it’s better than never, right? teehee. maraming salamat philippines. hope to be back soon!
