Day 1 and 2 in Boracay!

My friends and I went to Boracay for our summer trip this 2013! This is our first out of Luzon trip together! <3

We left Manila last May 7, 2013. Day 1 are just plane photos. Plus the photos in my iphone which got stolen. HUUUUHUUU. Anyway, our flight got delayed so we arrived in Bora a bit late…and tired. We didn’t push ourselves to party because we’ll be there three nights so we still have two nights! We just had dinner then slept at our hotel around 11pm.

Day 2! We woke up at 8 in the morning for our first activity, the ATV and Boracay Island 360 view! 

I have a huge fear riding motorcyle!! Didn’t know driving ATV would be so fun and exciting. 

Second activity was the Fly Fish!!!

GRABE. This is the first time I tried fly fish and it was like “YOLO!”. It was super fun as in real fun. More intense than EKstreme. My friend’s bf got traumatized in this activity though :P

 

I was forcing myself not to fly or dive in the sea, so I got these pasa in my legs! Creepy but believe me this was the most fun we did in Bora. Hahaha.

Third activity was the helmet diving which I’ll just update this post when the photos in the cd are already uploaded! But here’s after we fed the fishes under the sea.

Ended 2nd day… drinking Loco Frio Mojitos!

Sampaloc Lake, San Pablo City, Laguna

Sampaloc lake is one and the biggest lake you will find in San Pablo City, Laguna. It’s located near the Town’s Cityhall. It is perfect for unwiding, relaxing, family and friends bonding and also for jogging.

Yesterday, I went out for a jog at around 5:30 in the morning. I decided to go to Sampaloc lake so I can have a nice view while jogging.

Panorama view of the lake. View larger, here.

View of the lake, 5:45AM

View of the lake, 7AM
There’s a bike rental, balsa, food stalls, park, and benches where you seat and overlook the lake. The bike rental costs 10-35php depending on the bike you’re going to rent. It is good for one round of bike around the lake. And the balsa costs 150-180php. - I haven’t tried riding in the balsa though but my friends told me it was fun!

Some of the photos you’ll see around the lake:

There are food stalls which sells hotdogs, drinks and etc! By afternoon, these food stalls sells isaw, chicken feet, barbeque and other grilled foods!

You can also bring you pets out for a walk.

There are taho vendors too, this taho costs 10php!

The stairs going to the park where you can have picnic, play games and just sit and relax.

Like a tourist. Loljk. After the 3.7km jog! :)

How to go there commute:

  1. -Ride a bus going to Lucena in Jac Liner Bus Station in Gil Puyat (127php).
  2. -Go down in San Pablo City, medical hospital to be exact.
  3. -Ride a tricycle going to Sampaloc Lake (Usually costs 40php per trip)

TIPS

  1. -Rent a bike, tour around the lake
  2. -Take picture/s of the sunrise or sunset
  3. -Eat ISAW! They have the best Isaw here in town
  4. -Drink buko juice
Panther's Eyes

Lost my phone yesterday and all of my Bora trip pictures are gone, including my OOTD photos on our first day. Thank God I have some  photos in my friend’s camera. Hehe.

So here’s what I wore on our second day in Boracay! 

Bikini from Topshop, Cover up from Rajo Laurel, Sunnies from Charlie

I don’t usually post photos of me wearing bikinis especially here on my blog. But screw it, I have to update my blog with my Boracay trip. Hehehe. That’s how I enjoyed my Boracray 2013 with my friends!! 

I love how versatile my cover up is. I can actually wear it as a vest(like what I did here), top, poncho, skirt and etc. It also helps me hide my fat body! Hihihi. Also, I love my bikini which I got on sale *woot*, it’s very eye catching because of Panther’s eyes,. New favorite! 

These photos were taken at the Ocean Tower where you can see the whole Island of Boracay. Such a lovely place! ‘Di ba? AHHH :)

Tea time!

Finally was able to try TWG! I’ve been seeing it on blogs and/ or instagram so I was curious what was all the fuss about. Last night, while waiting for the Meg 15th anniversary event to start, Erika and I decided to have a tea. “Tea time”!

TWG Tea was established in Singapore in celebration of the island’s great history as a trading post for teas, spices and fine epicurean products. TWG Tea, which stands for The Wellness Group, is a luxury concept that incorporates an international distribution network to professionals, unique and original retail outlets and exquisite tea rooms.

TWG Tea tasters travel thousands of miles across the globe every year, sampling hundreds of teas in search of the most desirable harvests direct from source gardens - http://www.twgtea.com/

Moving on, here are some of our photos… 

Hello, Erika Rodica, my lovely date for the night <3

Ordered their Pagoda Mocktail. A refreshing mocktail of sparkling lemonadewith brisk and fruity weekend in Shanghai Tea “Pagoda drink for the pagoda girl” Haha!

June 23, 2013

Yesterday, my friend visited me at my town in San Pablo City, Laguna! I was surprised because we didn’t plan it. So in return, I toured my friend to Liliw, Laguna, a town near us.

I brought him to the famous Saint John the Baptist Church! It’s where Kampanerang Kuba had their taping long time ago. Such a beautiful church <3

The church was a perfect place to have prayers and meditation. 

Turista lang?! Hahaha. It’s been a long time since I went there though.

Of course, Liliw is famous for shoes, sandals and slippers. Instant shoe shopping hoooooraaahh! I only bought two pairs, sucks that I’m a size 10 girl because some shoes are only until size 9. Boohoo.

Your Liliw trip won’t be complete without eating at the famous ARABELA! Their pastas are affordable and so goooooooooooood. YUMM!

So after our Liliw trip, we went back to San Pablo and visited the Cathedral. :)

Have a wonderful day at Enhanted Kingdom
Went to Enchanted Kingdom last Monday with two of my best friends at the office. Its been a year since I went there so I really had a great time.:-)

There’s a new ride, the disc-o-matic!! It was scary at first but I really enjoyed our second ride there. New Favorite!!

My friend after riding this ride, “Ang salit sa itlog”. Hahaha this EKstreme ride is surely an extreme one!!

Beautiful Rialto at night!!!:-)

There were not much people so we were able to ride all the rides we want, not just once but twice! It’s better if you’ll go there on a weekday especially this summer.
And yes, we really had a wonderful day at Enchanted Kingdom! :)

We were supposed to watch About Time but sadly, it was not showing in Greenbelt anymore so my friends and I decided to just have a pig out day. (Which I love more<3)

We had our late lunch at The Burger Bar in Greenbelt 2.

At first, I didn’t know what to order because they’re all just burgers. (Hahaha) But when the waiter was asking for our orders, what I said was “Kuya, ‘yung burger na maraming bacon” so he suggested the Piggy Burger (245php)! My friends ordered the Hangover Burger (285php) and the 4 cheese chuck (245php). The burger was good, but I expected more for the restaurant because I’ve been seeing tweets and IG posts about it. Booohooo.

Anyway, we ordered Buttermilk chicken tenders (290php) for our appetizer and tried the Nutella Milkshake (290php) which was both taste so gooooooooooood.

Day 3 was our best and most tiring of all. We had beach activities all day and partied all night!

We woke up around 8 am for our fourth activity in our whole Bora trip and our first activity of the day, the beach hopping and snorkeling. 

We went to Crocodile Island and other Islands which I forgot the names. Yes I’m poor with names :|. Lastly we went to the Puka Beach!

After, we went back to the Bora Island to have our lunch and the Jonah’s fruitshake!

Next activity was…… Parasailing!

I didn’t know I was afraid of heights until I did the parasailing. I was so afraid while Pia and I were at the air. Shit cray cray. I kept on shouting and shouting! HAHAHA

Last activity was the Paraw Sailing! The very relaxing activity that let you see the beautiful sunset!! <3

After the tiring activities, we had our mirienda in DMall then rest for 3 hours. TOOO PARTYYY

Of course, beach trips aren’t complete without getting drunk. HEHE

Club Paraw Boracraaay! <3
