Off to Beautiful Boracay

Dear Friends,

This Friday, the 17th of October, I, together with my hubby and kids will soon be off to a short getaway to a beautiful island resort.

I am actually off to a mission, not a pure leisure-type vacation. I and hubby was commissioned to take shots of the lovely island and make a presentation about the place for a bidding requirement to be submitted this November.

Since the place requires lots of sunblock, I have decided to enjoy the place as well, together with the whole family, and not just focus on the mission.

We will be staying there for the whole weekend and two additional days to celebrate my son's 8th birthday there.

After this, we will be moving to Iloilo, and reunite with some relatives. Bacolod is in one of my to-visit places so I might do a side trip there. Please wait for me. When I get back, I promise to post photos and a travel blog post about our trip. We will be back after 15 days, but I might have the time to update you of my trip.

In the meanwhile that I will be gone, I will be leaving you with this...

Beautiful Boracay Sunset I will soon be experiencing...

For those who have visited this wondrous place...

Each of us touched by Boracay has a special memory about this beach paradise. For non-divers, it could be the amazement of feeding fish while floating in the middle of the sea. It could be the fine white sand or various water and air sports like the jet ski, banana boat ride and parasailing. It could even be as simple as the fresh seafood, the great fruit shakes or the sand castles with lighted candles inside.

It could also be the great evening parties, which could be really wild. Perhaps it’s the unspoken rule that what happens in Boracay, stays in Boracay or maybe it’s just that party animals who go there just want to party.

For others, including me, it could be the evening itself.

Anyone is naturally expected to be dead tired after a full day of enjoying the powder-white Boracay sand, maybe just like the mighty sun. However, as the orange-red sun bids farewell and slowly drops down the horizon, it hugs the edge of the island, fighting, just like in the poem, not to go softly into the night. Perhaps everybody wouldn’t mind the sun staying much longer, but perhaps everybody wouldn’t miss the sun if it goes into the night without a fight.


For those who have not...

On a summer break,
Do not read your law books.
It is a chance for you
To see the moon
In beautiful Boracay beach.

Take care everyone!

You are so lucky! Boracay is one of the many places I'd like to see the next time I come home for a vacation.

Enjoy the sun! We'll be waiting for pictures and stories :)

Oh, I can't wait to hear about your trip and see your pictures when you get back! It looks and sounds lovely. It will be fun for your son to celebrate his birthday away from home. :) Be safe and have fun!
I've never been to Boracay, so I hope you enjoy for me! And good luck to your hubs for the photo project. Please eat as many Ilonggo pastries as you can, and don't skip out on all the scrumptious food in Negros!
