You wouldn’t have a hard time looking for restaurants around La Union’s surf beach. They’re just all across. But thanks to Rafa, we also tried others that are not in the vicinity. Here’s what we had:
1. Complimentary breakfast at the Circle Hostel. Soft and savory pandesal with Cheez Whiz or peanut butter spread and bananas. Manong magtataho also drops by to wake the whole neighborhood up every morning. You can buy ordinary coffee (P15/cup) too. Take just enough for some energy to surf, but not too much that you’ll bloat. The Circle also has homegrown lemongrass, basil, thyme, etc. in their lawn so tea lovers can have their freshly brewed cup of tea from The Circle before setting out to the sea.
Being caught up in the hustles of employment, the boring yet exhausting weekday routine, and the burden of having to deal with some toxic people every day take away my innate youthful vibe. My cousin would often ask me why I don’t seem to have a lot of new friends after I transferred here in Manila. I am a social butterfly, he insisted. I did not intend to, but that part of me was unconsciously hidden somewhere in my petite anatomy. I became lazy and I forgot how outgoing and cheerful I really am.

We arrived in Boracay at around 11 am. After checking in and having lunch, we immediately changed to our beach clothes and headed to our first adventure – parasailing! Continue reading
After all our adventures in Boracay, we decided to spend our last afternoon swimming. But who could swim in a sea full of people? The main shore was jam-packed and it was also kind of mossy. So I suggested that we go swimming at Puka Beach. It is only one ride away from the main shore. You only have to call a tryke to get to there and the fare costs only P100.
One day, we thought of taking selfies so we travelled to Cadiz Viejo just to do that. Kidding.
Yet again, I experienced another paradise with my friends.
My cousin Bretzy and her friend Divine who are based in Manila went to Iloilo for a short vacay. We sailed across the vast seas (OA lang) from Iloilo to Guimaras Island for a beach getaway.
Here’s a perfect jump shot taken by our sailboat driver!
One simply cannot have enough of the view of the sunset. I cannot even put into words the feeling that I get whenever I catch it. It’s one of the many things that I love about Boracay. The beauty of sunset over a wide horizon is something you just can’t describe properly.
