A birthday celebration in a dream destination recognize  by Travel+Leisure Magazine as the best beach in the world, The Boracay Island in the Philippines.


Boracay Island, Philippines best destination we can be very proud of, from the crystal blue water to the powdery white sand beach.  You may even simply lay down and relax while watching the waves touch your feet. Amazing natural wonder.

It is November once gain and this is a very enjoyable month for us because it is my birthday & my daughter, Janna. We have planned to celebrate at  Boracay, the world’s best island destination for 2012,  recognition given by the Travel+Leisure Magazine .

I already booked a flight last July on a seat sale bound to Kalibo. This is much cheaper as compared to Caticlan, though we have to pay for P250@ for van-boat transfer, an environmental fee of Php75, terminal fee of Php200, tricycle for Php100, I still consider it much cheaper.

We stayed at Erikos House located at Station 2 for Php1,800/per night with a spacious bathroom, TV, and a  refrigerator. A refrigerator is a must for food storage, we bought  half gallon of ice cream and soft drinks.  Erikos also provide hot water in case you want a cup of noodles early in the morning or even late at night. Good for barkadas and family since the place is not costly, decent and so near D’ Mall where you can find lots of stuffs to buy and places to eat. 

A peek at Boracay on an early Saturday morning like this is  captivating. No wonder it has gain recognition from around the world.

There are lots of activities like parasailing, ATV and Buggy car, Fishing and Scuba Diving to name a few. You will never run out of choices here.

Boracay has plenty of nice places to eat and has a very good taste too.  Btw, McDonald’s recently opened this November only,  it is beside Boracay Regency Resort, we have our breakfast there.


Lemon Café

Here we bought a lemon pie, brownies and the bestseller which is so good is the Lemon Cheesecake.
