Last July, I visited Boracay with my Boyfriend for my late birthday travel. This will also be my last vacation here in the Philippines before I move to Canada. Last year we travelled to Manila, Tagaytay and Batangas for my birthday and I want to keep this tradition alive in the coming years.

A lot of things has changed in Boracay since my last visit in 2009. There are more things to see and do nowadays. Aside from sun bathing by the beach, we also made sure that we will be able to do recreational activities to make it even more memorable. I am not fond of water activities to be honest, I am scared of water because I don’t know how to swim and I always fear for my life when I am close to the sea. That is also the reason why I don’t like going to beaches, but we all know it’s different with Boracay, right? I made sure to get the right tan and go for Parasailing and ATV.

Our first activity is ATV. We followed the trail going to Mt. Lujo where we lingered a bit to see the amazing view of the island. The secret to get a lower priced adventure is to haggle to an acceptable budget, but not to the point where agent is no longer getting commission. For the ATV activity that we did, we paid P700.00 each.

Our next adventure is Parasailing. This is what I am really excited about. I’ve been babbling about this to my boyfriend because this is included in my life bucket list of the things that I want to do. He has fear of heights but I was able to convince him to conquer his fears. Thank god he agreed. We paid P1,100 each for Parasailing.

Purely coincidence, my Aunt and her family also visited Boracay on the same date as ours and they invited us for dinner at Discovery Shores where they are staying. Here I am with my beautiful Aunt Socorro.

Your Boracay travel will not be complete if you will not see the stunning Boracay sunset. I love how the sky change its color come sunset and there are a lot of people by the beach waiting for it.

Before I end this blog, let me show you how my breakfast looks like. On our first day I chose Filipino breakfast called Tocilog and on our second until our last days I decided to go for Continental Breakfast so I don’t have to eat a lot, plus it includes bacon which is my favorite in the whole wide world!

That’s it for now, some of my Boracay photos are included in either my outfit posts or bikini posts in Boracay so stay tuned for that.

Hi everyone! I have been missing in action for last last few weeks and I know I failed to post fashion blogs. I have been hospitalized for a week and spent another week regaining strength because I have been seriously ill. I will not be elaborating about my illness since it is also not life threatening, but it inhibit me in doing fashion shoots. I am not sure when will I be able to do fashion shoot so I can post a fashion blog but I will be posting alternative blogs in the mean time. And what I will be posting today is my travel to Barili which is a town in the South of Cebu province.

Our Barili trip was very spontaneous and certainly not planned. My boyfriend and 2 other friends, decided to go on the very last minute. Well, unplanned trip is certainly the best.

Our first stop is the Molave Milk Station. They sell fresh cows milk and ice cream here which is something I always look forward to in every visit on the South of Cebu.

Next is the Tilapia Fishing Village and Restaurant. The activities you can do here is to go on fishing for Tilapia and swim at their public pool. Furthermore, you can also dine at their restaurant and order Tilapia, chicken and pork then have it cooked in your own preference. They also have rooms here if you want to stay overnight.

We ordered nilagang manok bisaya, grilled pork belly and sinugbang tilapia. Boy, they cook really good here and the price is very cheap compared to dining in Cebu City restaurants.

 

Just close to the Tilapia Fishing Village is our friends’ family farm that we visited to see goats and ride ATV. Yes, my boyfriend has been bugging me about travelling to Barili because he want to ride the ATV at our friends’ farm.

They have a lot of Calamansi plants and this picking is really getting serious.

Their goat barn. I have not seen a lot of goat in my life and here they are, all kinds and sizes.

Standing in the middle of the Papaya trees contemplating if I am going to pick one.

 

And just close to the Tilapia Fishing Village and our friends’ farm is the Mantayupan Falls. I love nature watching and I have been chasing Waterfalls since last year. Their beauty is just mesmerizing and I wonder how god came to create such an amazing sight.

Mantayupan Falls has 2 levels and this is the first level with 3 small waterfalls.

This is the second level with waterfall height of 98 meters. This scenic view is jaw dropping.

Our last stop before we head back to the City is the Gustoso Pizza and Pasta restaurant as per recommendation of our friend. He told us that this is the best pizza house in Barili.

IMG_20150928_163053_HDR

It surely did not disappoint because their thin crust pizza is very delicious. We ordered Pepperoni Pizza, Ham and Mushroom Pizza, Spaghetti and Carbonara.
