REMINISCING BORACAY: THINGS TO DO

With my trip to Japan in less than a month away, it got me reminiscing about my previous trip to Boracay. 
Here are some of my favourite things to do on the island: 

ONE
On the last day of our trip, we were blessed with the view of the most magnificent sunset I have ever seen in my life. The colours swirled in the sky for a good 30 minutes before it left us all with a yearning heart for this quaint island. 

TWO
 To fully experience Boracay, going for an island tour is a must. It covers stops at several beaches and also includes a cliff-jumping opportunity for adrenaline seekers. My favourite island was Crystal Cove that guarantees you a picturesque view of the sea line. 

THREE
Water sports at a beach destination? DUH. Jet ski and parasailing are some of my preferred activities. If you can, I'd suggest parasailing with the sunset as your backdrop. Just imagine the sight you'd see! 

FOUR
Not many travelers know this but alcohol in Boracay is dirt cheap. If alcohol is your thing, go ahead and have them all day long. I vaguely remember getting drunk on wine one night.

VISITING WILLY'S ROCK IN BORACAY






"Go to the Willy's Rock!", they'd say. Truly, the view there is the most spectacular. Situated at Station One, the Willy's Rock is the iconic statue of Boracay that you see most often on postcards. Compared to the other two stations, the sand there are much softer, which makes it a pleasure to walk in. And while you're taking in the picturesque view of the island, head to the famous Jonah's Fruit Shake Bar for some milkshakes! I personally recommend the mango one. 

The six days spent on this magical island was a much needed break from a year long of studies and work. It feels great not having to think of commitments for awhile. Will be blogging about the trip in series so do check back!

NEW BEGINNINGS




Wearing Mishima II body harness from HURL & grey midi from Cotton On

Trying something new & giving body harnesses a try. This one's from HURL, a local Carouseller who makes these really sick harnesses and accessories. You can have so much fun with harnesses, layer it above or under a plain shirt or anything really, and it'll add so much more character to the whole look. I can totally envision myself pairing this in other combinations, but we'll save that for another day. 

First post of the new year – 2 weeks into the new semester & I still haven't gotten used to the rhythm of school. Suffering badly from post holiday blues & can't seem to concentrate in class. This really shouldn't be the way, I hope things get better soon.
