Boracay babymoon (2012) - Day 3, Blue skies, blue sea, and seafood buffet

I woke up to find out that the skies and sea were extremely blue! So I knew it would be a perfect day for us to relax under the sun or do some swimming. And basically we just spent time at the beach, continue eating scrumptious local food, and last but not least, packed and moved to another hotel - Boracay Beach Club.

Good morning to the blue waters of Boracay! 

Buffet breakfast with international choices. Was attracted by the spaghetti.


This is the blue that I expected before I came. At least no disappointment! Somehow it's different from the blue of Maldives of course.

Swimming time.

Then... beer time.

Lazing around with iced water in my hand. I was melting...

Couldn't be happier to go for a relaxing trip during pregnant.

Clear blue skies~~

Windsurfing paradise? Actually Bulabog beach is the main windsurfing spot on the island. But I guessed there must be some event going on at White Beach.

What a scene!

View from our balcony. It's almost time to check out.

Willy's Rock behind us.

We stopped by at Jonah's Fruit Shake & Snack Bar for lunch before going to Boracay Beach Club (BBC). From the map it's only within few hundred meters that we need to walk from Willy's to BBC. From numerous reviews on Boracay, Jonah's milkshake is quoted as the best milkshake in the whole island, so of course we must not miss it. Furthermore it's only steps away from Willy's.

Ordered Avocado Milk & Mango Milk (PHP 95 each).

Our lunch: Pork Sinigang (PHP 200) and Vegetable Curry (PHP 150), served with white rice.
The portion is so big that we couldn't finish it.


After lunch we walked to BBC. It is located on the other side of the road, not directly on the beach. We were welcomed with a glass of chilled fruit juice each. 

Boracay Beach Club's lobby.

We felt warm and welcomed here.

Our room - Deluxe King


After check-in I were too lazy to go out as it was a hot hot day *sweating even we just took a short walk from Willy's to BBC*. So the best thing I could think of was AFTERNOON NAP!!! Took a shower then I dozed off zzzzz.....

I slept till 4+ in the late afternoon then went out again to explore around. My plan was to relax at the beach and go for seafood buffet tonight.

Street view in front of BBC.

White Beach at late afternoon.

Lots of yachts. Perhaps there was some event going on.


The whole next hour was spent on the beach watching people and breathing sea breeze. Yes we were waiting for sunset. Still too early to go for food although I've been craving for seafood already...

Boracay!

Hiding under the tree.

Romantic sunset by the beach.

Selfie.

We had our dinner at Deparis Dinner Buffet. Worth it for ALL YOU CAN EAT.

EAT ALL YOU CAN at PHP 380 + 10% each person



Good appetite.


The rest of the night we took a walk around D'Mall. Did some souvenir shopping (only bought a few keychains) as I was not in the mood due to pregnancy hormones. Only wanted to spend time lazing around and later hunt for desserts. I remembered that I saw a few cafe selling ice-cream/waffles the day before. :)

Station 2 at night.

Going towards D'Mall direction.


We ended up having supper at HALOWICH. Little baby was craving for ice-cream.


A trendy looking shop.


We get the Couple Bowl (PHP 280 + 10%). It's big enough to be shared among 4 people!!

Happy slurping and good night.

Langkawi-Koh Lipe family trip 2014

Off we went for a short holiday again. This round we have 6 people, including my 82-year-old grandma and my little 21-month-old cheeky koala. It's another challenging trip having to travel with my grandma (Imagine boarding ferry and long-tail boat a few rounds with an 80+ senior citizen!! And yea we brought her out for the island hopping trip too~) but we've so used to running around everywhere with our oldest and youngest in the family, so it was considered a smooth one.

Holiday!!

Most people would go through Pak Bara, but we prefer Langkawi. To save time and effort on booking separately, we threw the task to our regular use agent to settle it, in fact the price is almost the same but we just have to pack and go. And I only booked Langkawi hotels on my own.
*If you want to have the contact you may just PM me through my email.
