Our Boracay Summer in November

Friday, November 30, 2012
A few months ago, the contest addict in me instinctively joined this twitter contest by Boracay Rum. The rules are simple: Simply tell why you love Boracay Rum and tweet your answer using their hashtag #BoracayCalling. Easy peasy! Here was my entry:

Several weeks later, I unexpectedly received a tweet telling me I won their contest together with two others. I was so ecstatic. Why? Because the prize was too generous to believe in: a 3D2N stay in the beautiful island of Boracay plus airfare and pocket money and I get to tag along 2 friends with me.

Since I can’t go anytime between June-October, we decided to schedule it on November 1-3. School schedule was really tight, we don’t even have a sem break. So I resolved to spending the 4-day long weekend aka pseudo-sembreak in the gorgeous island of Boracay.

Enough with this very long prologue. Here are some deets from our Boracay trip:

We left on the early morning of November and flee to Boracay island via AirPhil Express carrier. Our flight got delayed but thank God the flight was quite short.

We stayed in Shore Time Hotel-- the room was really nice and the staffs were really kind and accommodating. They even arranged to have us transferred to and fro the hotel, airport and port. We stayed in one of their twin pads. It was like a loft good for 4 persons. The one thing I loved in this hotel was that our room was made daily without fail. =) Sad thing is that I fail to take good pictures of the place.

Upon arrival, we just decided to walk the streets that night and ate dinner at D'Mall.

The following day was a bunch of activities in store for us!

First stop: A trip to the aviary. Kel and I rode the buggy car instead of the ATV. Loser us!

Fly fish adventure: Cried for dear life! (cue: 3rd pic)

Helmet diving: A 15- minute bonding with fishes. You had to look at my face, I was almost crying inside that helmet 'cause I can't seem to counter the pressure under the sea. =( But sure did enjoy!

Look! This one's a good shot! Lol

Day 2 dinner by the beach at Paradiso Grill and night stroll

And as promised, we ended the night with a bottle of Boracay Rum- Cappuccino!

Before and after. Hahaha!

Our last day in the island, was spent on picture taking and just chilling by the beach. We woke up really early just so we can swim without getting our skin too tanned.

We left the island at noon. And was really sad about leaving. I had to admit, I fell in love with the Island. I promised myself we'll soon be back.

Thank you so much, Ms. Bea of Boracay Rum and the rest of the team! This experience couldn't have been possible without all your efforts. My words would not suffice to express the gratitude I feel for this memorable trip. We undeniably enjoyed our stay. =)
