Beach 1-2-3!

I fear deep waters. I am not a swimmer. Yet ironically, I love beaches! I love to see that sand-water-sky picturesque view. I love the calming sound of the waves. I love the cool breeze. I hate the fact that I didn't get to hit the beach last summer, lol.

I know that the Philippines has a lot of beautiful shores but I've been to very few. These are just some of them. Sharing you my experiences, my firsts and my photo album :)
 
Laiya
 March 2009


This was one of the happiest team buildings I've been to. Oh how I miss these peeps I was with in this 2D/1N adventure (most of them are working in other companies now).


We stayed at La Luz Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas. Food was served buffet style. And I love that we ate at tables outdoors with the sea as a perfect backdraft!


Yeah, the shore isn't fine sand but who cares?! It still is beautiful.

Talikodgenic much?
Awesome beach. Fabulous friends. Cozy hotel room. Good Food. Nothing more you could ask for on a weekend getaway.

Marinduque
 September 2010
Do you see the Elephant Island? That's BellaRocca! One of my dream destinations.
Oh, I was really excited for this Marinduque Trip! Why? Cause I thought that this would be my first time outside Luzon! Only to find out later that Marinduque is an island that belongs to Region 4B, and yes, it still is part of Luzon. Anyways, it was my first time to ride RORO, haha.

Leaving Mainland China Luzon
Again, with a set of crazy office friends.. Andie invited us to join him in his short vacation in their province.

While waiting for the boat going to Gaspar Island
I did say we're crazy, right?
Look at how clear the water is!


Sea Urchin
Plus a perfect sunset to end the day

Beautiful island. Free accommodation. Hospitable people. Home-cooked food. A perfect 4 day get-away.

Boracay
 August 2011
Who wouldn't fall in love with this gorgeous place?
This is my real first-time-out-of-Luzon trip! And the first time I rode an airplane. With my super gay friends..


What's not to love about Boracay Island? Super fine white sand and clear waters combined with shops and bars plus handsome topless guys (charot!).. And it is packed with endless activities that you can enjoy..

Just Walking; best if barefoot
First Attempt to Snorkel.. Fail! :)
Nope, I didn't drive! I simply can't :(
What am I doing?!Lol..
 The best part of being with gay friends? Never a dull moment!

Saya no?!
Did you notice that in all 3 trips there were two other faces who were consistently there? Yup, first one is Zaicy, the other is Carlo!

I'm a late bloomer for travelling. Not that it didn't interest me, it's just that I had other priorities before. But I'm looking forward to seeing more places and swimming dipping in more beaches! Love!!



**Pictures are either mine or Zaicy's - no pirating please, :) **
