In mid February, we went for a short trip not too far from home, about 2 hours drive. As usual, my bags were heavier than me – not only that I brought my laptop along (was hoping I could complete downloading my new MMO game), I also carried with me a couple of books, as if I’m not going to return. We checked in at Corus Paradise, Port Dickson.
When you are on the island, you may spend your time exploring all the magnificent beaches of Boracay, which accumulates to 7 KM long – White Beach, Puka (Yapak) Beach, Bulabog Beach, Diwinid Beach, Manoc-Manoc Beach and Balinghai Beach. They were gorgeous white sandy beaches – even with the crowdedness and known as commercially-touristic place, the environment were still clean and well-maintained. The sea is unbelievable stunning, the water is so crystal clear, you can even see your own feet! Simply amazing.
When you land on Boracay, most people spent their days enjoying the spectacular scenery of the island. I love to save the best for the last, so I’ll definitely share the stunning views in my final Boracay episodes with you guys (I promise!).
I believe you’ve read through the previous stories about the hassle and the activity itinerary, well that’s pretty much what we did over the 8 days. On Wed, 23-Jan-13, both of us fell sick and somewhat have to stay in the hotel room that morning (I know, it’s a bummer when you’re sick during your holiday!). Before I flew to PHI, I had been sick for a week, where my fever spikes up every single day until it reaches 40 degrees! Terribly, it didn’t go off until the night we were supposed to fly. I went to consult with the doctor again asking if I’m allowed to travel (you know you would do anything just to get on that plane!). So I played my innocent face with the innocent-wide-eyes, begging the doctor to help me sort out the disaster. I was prescribed with several antiviral medications for the trip and gotten the approval to travel in a safe condition. Despite the super-high fever, I was glad when I heard the word “Yes, you can” from the doctor’s mouth.
