My First Boracay Trip

WARNING: Pictures are blurred. They were taken using my 2006-acquired Nokia 70 phone and worst they were shrinked! haha! Paliwanag ako sa presinto. =))

It seems that every travelista has been to Boracay. And for me it's a pre-requisite! Before you discover and check out other places, you must go to this wonderful island first. Likewise, everyone has great Boracay experience that can be shared.

It was on 2007 when I first set foot to Boracay. The vacation was subsidized by the company. So, expected that it was a sort of a team building amongst colleagues or within your team for that matter. Being a pasaway, I joined the other team because most of my barkadas are there. hahaha! 

Phati, Me, Lara and Glad
Boracay is breathtaking. That is an understatement. Search for internet photos and see for yourself . My pictures won't give justice to its beauty. Pardon guys. =))

Boracay is an island where everything is present just around the corner. You can always rely to D'Mall! This market has food stalls, fast food chains, ice cream stalls, coffee shops, souvenir shops, internet shops, boutiques, restaus, etc. Name it they have it! This is situated in the center of White Beach stretch. Station 2, that is.

Shells! In one of the souvenir shops of D'Mall.

Where? This post is still in Boracay as of this time. I just checked it. =D This is near D'Mall

The buffet breakfast in Patio Pacific was delicious! But forget the dinner and lunch meals (that time). They all tasted the same! Arrrrgh! Sorry Patio, though you are one of our partner hotels in Boracay (Shameless plugging hahaha! -> For your travels needs, DJEF may help you. =)

With other colleagues during breakfast. As mentioned, I was not part of their team. So was Lara. 

We were in Boracay on May 2007. There was no much sunlight because of typhoon. Sigh! But still managed to enjoy the sand, the beach and the party!

At Paraw with Lanie, Phati, Ian and Tuks. 
Paraw is one bar place in Boracay you shouldn't miss! This is where we discovered some party steps (ala dougie) that up to now we are using and laugh on whenever we do them. Haaaayyy, I miss Paraw! 

Aside from the wine, spirit, beers, chats and smoke Paraw can offer, there were also controversial scenes on the side. haha! Pero sabi nga nila, what happens in Boracay stays in Boracay.
THE famous FRIDAYS wooden letters.

  Boracay is one place Filipinos can be proud of. Even better than Phuket and Bali. =) Come October this year, I will visit this place again with friends. My family and I will be celebrating new year here on January 2012 as well. Can you imagine how excited I am? :) Ikaw, ano ang kuentong Boracay mo?
