2010 Summer Week 3

Anniepie Smoked Ribs and Mocha-chill - Must-tries from this restaurant! 

My mum took me out to lunch at Anniepie. Its this little cafe/restaurant. The serve some of the tastiest food there! I love that place so much.

I also had my hair coloured at the Hair Studio Salon. The colour they used was from L'oreal in the shade Golden Blonde. I was first surprised at how light it was! It took some getting used to, but now I really like it. What do you think? ♥ My sister had her hair rebonded also, to make it look straighter, more sleek and less frizzy. Here's us playing with the camera~!

22-25 June 2010

As an early birthday present, my mum treated me to a 4-day/3-night stay in Boracay. It is one of the most popular beaches in the Philippines, famous for its very fine white sand. My mum and I had so much fun there. We had amazing massages at the Mandala Spa, and had such tasty seafood! I binged on lemon/garlic and butter-fried crabs and lobsters! Yumyum! ♥

It was a trek to get there from Davao City.

We flew a plane to Cebu, and then another to Caticlan.

Rode on a pedicab/tricicad to the sea port.

Crossed the sea via a dodgy boat.

We stayed at the Boracay Regency Hotel. Lush!

We had hotel seafood and meat shabu shabu for lunch.

Walked around and saw Shakey's Pizza and Starbucks by the beach.

Saw a giant slipper.

A lobster for dinner ♥

Had banana and nutella crepes with vanilla ice cream ♥

Photobucket
Saw beautiful sandcastles~

And giant lobsters~! ♥

Last but not least - what Boracay is known for - its ultra-fine white sand, that doesn't feel the least hot despite the Philippine sun~ ♥

It was such a magical place~ ! I love my seafood :) They also had a lot of activities to do there like snorkeling, island hopping and paragliding - but I couldn't partake in any of these activities because I just had eye surgery (although I was a bit naughty for not wearing my protective goggles haha)! I might do those next time, and I hope to bring my friends there someday ~ ♥

If ever you go to the Philippines, you must go to Boracay~!


Have any of my Filipino readers been there? ♥
