The dash is like too much and unnecessary right? Please do subscribe me again with my new blog url on your reading list, Thank you so much.
So.... Yeah. Back to topic, today I gonna blog about my boracay trip. Yah, I know right it's like suddenly so many people been to boracay for holiday hah. I guess boracay is one of the hit island this year? I went there for 4 days 3 nights what I can say is not enough time to explore the whole island :( The first and last day totally wasted because it takes 2 days to travel to and fro, it's not like once you have reach the airport you can straight away take boat to the island. At first we thought it was just a short journey from Kalibo airport to boracay island. However, nope! It was a super long journey to reach that place! It took us 3/4 hours? Two and a half hours bus to the jetty, few mins from jetty to hotel. Imagine after 3 hours of flight still have to take all these aiks. I advice you guys not to take 4 days trip it's better to take a week. Humph... I should have stay there for a week!
The total cost for this trip was about malaysia ringgit 5.5k for two person. 3k plus for accommodation and flights then the rest was food and water sports. Worth right? Not too expensive. I'm stayed at The District hotel, one of the best hotel on my first time visiting Boracay. I highly recommend this hotel for couples, families and anyone lol. The hotel is clean, new, good service, great location near to D'mall and near to most of the attractions on Boracay hot spots I can say, cause it's located between station one and three.
Oh, I haven't mention yet. I travelled with my boyfriend hehe incase you guys are wondering who is that guy. Luckily most of the food we had in Boracay was surprisingly good, we looked like we went for a food trip in boracay
Restaurant // GasthofHad seafood and pig ribs for dinner after a long journey on the first night. Definitely must order their Gasthof back ribs if you visit Gasthof (Price: PHP 700 for full) One of the best ribs in Boracay
Wet Market // D'Talipapa
A very special market that allow you to buy fresh seafood and have them cooked in nearby restaurants that accept cooking service ( cooking fee is at 140 php/kg ). It's a great experience to visit here but just this once because to be honest it's consider pricey. As in I'm the kind of person who don't go to the market that's why it's really hard for me to bargain with them, I've no idea what's the market price for seafood. I guess the safest way is bargain with them about 30 to 40% lower with the price offer by them
Sweet and spicy calms , cheese baked lobster and grill squid
Restaurant // Titos Resto & Grill
If you are looking for Filipino food in the island, you can try Titos. They serve filipino dishes with a modern twist such as from different Filipino favorites and culture cuisine. We wanted to order more food from their menu but at that time we were too full.
Must try their famous Carbonara Pizza one of Titos best sellers and Hunghang chicken
Restaurant // Paupatri
LOL finally a picture of me and him " Hi! ". Here's another resto that serve delicious Filipino dishes, but it's a bit hard to find it because it's a hidden haven amongst the busy nightlife in station two as it involves traversing an extremely narrow alley and some distance from Boracay's White Way. Oh yah and it's better to come here with a bunch of friends/family because they serve in big portions of food.
Yup that's all of the dining places we've been. Now, some chill out spots in boracay
Bar // Epic
Definitely a place for those who love to party! Those people with yellow tee were from the pubcrawl, I didn't know what is pubcrawl until that night lol It's actually an activity which you can meet a lot of different people in a single night while going from one bar or “pub” to another, sounds interesting uh
At first we decided to sit outdoor instead of inside because we just want to have wine and chill more than partying but the music was so good inside it tempted us to get in for a while ha!
Bar // I don't remember the name but it's just right beside our hotel
Hookah at the beach was an amazing experience so chilling and relaxing, I love it. I know hookah isn't good for health but who cares? It's time to get a break YOLO
Hookah with some good music performances
Restaurant & Cafe // Wrap 'n Roll Spider House
We've been here twice, one of my favorite chill out spot among all. It's actually a sushi bar but we didn't try their sushi, we just went here for a cuppa drink and some light desserts
The view is breathtaking as you overlook the ocean, and feel the openness of the resto welcome the air and natural light. I just want to stay here forever
Their fluffy banana pancake, thumbs up
Snack Bar // Jonah's Fruit Shake
After a long day of water sporting, this is like heaven. Healthy and cheap ice blended juice
Mango fruitshake and Banana milk fruitshake
Cafe // Real Coffee and Tea Cafe
They said this is one of the famous muffin in Boracay, but for me it taste so-so not what I've expected hump... maybe I'm not a big fan of muffins
Calamansi Muffin with Cold Calamansi drink
See I told ya, it's like a food trip right? hah! But I did went for water sporting ok, not only food. All thanks to the shitty weather, we didn't managed to go for cliff jumping and some other water sports. Because it's was pouring everyday booo.
Luckily we managed to sail along the blue sea
No cliff jumping? It's okay, we went for scuba diving. It was my first time diving and I fall in love with it. It was extremely fun! I guess I want to get diving license next time, it's a totally different world in the sea I loving it.
Did you see a school of fish?
This picture is to prove that I don't know how to dive hahaha! The tutor dragged me around for the whole time, so funny but I feel bad for him. I think he is madly tired after that dive.
Super awkward hand pose when you don't know how to dive LOL
Last but not least, my OOTD // matching print tops and bottoms for my beachwear look
Palm print top and bottom // Motel Rocks
Yellow tiger print // Bangkok
