Stop #1: Magic Island: wanted to cliff dive but too scared hehe
Mi henna tattoo!
Me, my mom and lola.
Stop #2: Forgot the name, but we did snorkel!
Stop #3: Puka Beach! Whatever you do, please don’t eat at Papa Jack’s. The service is terrible and the food are so overpriced for its taste and ambiance.
L-R: Kianah, Me, Angel and Kuya. This shot was before we ride the flying fish!
The struggle of hanging on to dear life and not falling off. I swear I was whispering to myself “konti nalang kaya mo yan” because it was so damn hard! My hands were all red from groping too hard. But it was the most fun and exciting thing probably Boracay has to offer!
Sky Cycle! It looks simple but with the cycles actually squeaking throughout the ride, I was scared huhu
My travel mantra: if I enjoyed in the hotel, there’s 80% chance I also enjoyed the place. Because who’ll enjoy vacation if the one place you’ll spend relaxing after a long day of activities is not praise-worthy?
And… *drum rolls* Boracay Regency certainly made it to the list of my favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed at. It was modern, it was relaxing, it has McDonald’s inside, its rooms were spacey, and it has swimming pools for each building! Man, I could stay there forever.
If there’s something I would never ever skip to do during summer is to hit the beach. As I have mentioned in my other blogs, I have always loved swimming and I don’t mind getting basked in the sun (but well, maybe not for too long). So when my parents asked me to book a flight to Boracay, I was more than excited to!
We flew Cebu Pacific on May 9, Friday. Despite all the bad reviews, the air company delivered well and we even arrived in Caticlan five minutes ahead of time. It was also my first time to fly domestic, so terminal 3 quite impressed because it was nothing like terminals 1 & 2. But the boarding gates are still very much crowded.
No touristy airport shots because tamad.
Boracay airport was so small! It was cute actually. But small. Maybe it’s cute because it’s small? I don’t know. But when we got there, the transfer service we booked from our hotel was already waiting. It included one super short van ride to the shores, a speed boat ride and another 10 minutes at the van. The transfer was quite pricey but it was worth the moolah because it was a smooth ride! I’d pay anything just not to get lost and/or line up.
An estimate of 2 hours later, we arrived at Boracay Regency; probably the best hotel in Station 2.

Look who just came in from work and decided to pick on my driving skills. HAHA But it’s my first time to drive at night so I may have needed a gummy bear passenger to cheer me up ❤️
ano po yung madalas mong gamit na lippy? and what color? gusto ko po kasing bumili kaso di ko po alam kung anong color babagay sakin ;(
You can never go wrong with red or red orange shades! In 2 It yung brand na ginagamit ko ngayon. Tomato yata yung color :)
Located 10 minutes away from our home, it has always been one of our summer escapes since I was a child. I have been to this place for so many times you’d think I’d be tired of it. But because I have always been a water baby - everything that has a pool excites me; we went for a go last Thursday!
My parents and me and my siblings decided to get separate but consecutive rooms. After we’re settled, me and my sister decided to take a walk with our dog Jiggly and take some pictures along the way.
Jiggly has always been so makulit and she loves to run so much that she doesn’t even mind walking with us when its screeching hot outside. But we had to tie her around posts sometimes because we’re busy taking pictures, and she’d panic - but after some reassuring that we’re not going anywhere, she’ll patiently wait for us.
When the sun finally calmed down, we decided to take a swim at the Oceania.
I’m just so proud of my shot of my brother. HAHA
Afterwards, we ate dinner at The Fishing Village and walked back to our room instead of taking the tram. It’s nice to breathe in some cold breeze at night, you know. The next morning, we ate breakfast and went back to Oceania. Though it’s really really hot, we managed to slide down the super thrilling slides that even I, at my age, still get shit scared. Ha! After hours, we prepared ourselves and went off to Yellowcab for lunch.
I really don’t know how to end this post so here’s a picture of Jiggly while we’re hanging out by the porch.
HAHA That’s what her “What the pug” look.
My family has always been fond of trying out different places to eat. Our plan to eat at Project Pie has long existed but we always had no time to push it through - until yesterday! My mom is out of town for a reunion so me, my dad and my other siblings were left on our own! And as you may guess, my dad, who is also a fan of malls and everything that makes us happy, drove us to Blue Bay Walk.
We were looking at the menu when a girl approached us and asked, “Is it your first time? Would you want me to walk you through the process?” And we were like, sure! Me and my sister thought she was charming and the way she talks makes her look even prettier!
So we head out to the jungle and ordered up a red pizza! I chose to build my own instead of picking the already prepared ones because, hell, getting to do your own pizza is the whole sense of Project Pie, right?
And as you may know, as the picky eater I am, I only chose mozarella, ricotta, bacon, pepperoni, grilled chicken and crumbled meatballs to top my pizza. Yep, no veggies.
And oh! The crew were having a hard time spelling out my name (even though I have already spelled G L E Y five times to them) so the they were all shouting, “Gley!” “Gley?” “What? Gley?” and the like. They looked funny.
The other thing that amazed me was their Drink Up Station! Apparently, you can refill your cup and drink all you can. And I have always been a fan of refilling my own cup using these little machines.
In conclusion, I think whoever made Project Pie was clever! The concept, the design and everything was entirely unique. It deserves all the buzz it’s getting now. :-)
That’s my dad, me and my sister. My little brother, Liam, took this photo for us. My oldre brother was late so… no picture for him! :p
