Part 1 of 2 for day 2 of 5 for the Boracay Saga.
29/04/2012. With only 3 hours of sleep, Nicole and I got up early since Yanni finally caught up with us at Boracay. We went to walk from Station 3 to Station 2 for breakfast at Red Coconut and of course, did some minor shopping along the way.
Crazy ass name for a hotel, right?
We passed by this man who was selling really beautiful jewelry made from authentic bones & horns and exotic shells, feathers and wood. If I had it my way I would bring that crocodile skull with me back home.
We then decided to chill and relax at Red Coconut. After all, we had 5 days in Boracay to really take some time and enjoy it’s beauty. Unlike my first time in Boracay 5 months ago, this visit was the time for me to really savor the paradise that this island really is. Sunbathing, fruit shakes (Red coconut serves the best!) and some people watching over some great music (insert Mango and Andre Frauenstein’s Disappear please!) and in that moment, I knew that my mind was at peace.
Another thing I love about Boracay is that no one really cares for anything once they step into the island. No one cares what they’re wearing or who’s wearing what. No one cares how much food they eat there, especially with the wide variety of buffets and great restaurants. No one cares how much they spend over there, whether if it’s being extravagant or being frugal. No one really cares about the stupid things they do once they start drinking. (we will get to that on a later post. LOL!)
I guess, not just for me, but for everyone who has stepped into the shores of this wondrous beach, it’s like leaving behind every single problem you have in the world and the only thing you care about is to enjoy and have fun. It’s great to know that there is still a place in this country wherein you don’t have to worry a single thing about. Boracay for me is like cocaine. It gets you high.
I’m very happy by the way that I got my 18-200mm lens just in time for the trip! I’m a Nikon user and coincidentally, Nikon was one of the sponsors for the Republiq event at Epic Boracay and they were giving out a discount card for up to 50% off on all camera purchases until June 2012.
We did some sunbathing up until 2 pm when Kate called us and said that we should catch up with her and her cousins at Epic. And that’s when things go wild. LOL.
But for now, cheers! Xx
