Siopao Goes to Bora!

October 17 – 19, 2010

Location: Boracay

No-“JUAN” could stop us from basking in the beauty of this island. And yes, PUN is very much intended. In other parts of the country, the typhoon may have caused much chaos, but for us in Bora the weather was kind enough to cooperate most of the time, although there were some items on the itinerary that had to be cancelled when it didn’t.

Perhaps next time, I could dohorseback- riding on the other side of the island and the ATV tour. But regardless, I had a great time indulging in the whole cliched Boracay tourist experience–from getting my hair braided to having my foot tattooed with henna.

Island hopping and snorkelling was exquisite, dipping in the waters of Crocodile Island and Crystal Cave. It was such a surprise to have schools of fish swimming about you and nibbling on the “pandesal” straight from your hand unabashedly.

Yes, the island may be a little too drowned in the overwhelming commercialism, but I daresay Boracay’s charm could never be repressed by the plethora of establishments sprouting like mushrooms all over the place. It’s charm is just all it’s own. And that’s what will keep you coming back for more, hopefully long after all these establishments could get back their ROI’s (provided that the people would act responsibly to take care of the island too).
