A Quick Labour's Day Break : Part 1

Note: This post has been in "draft" for like 2 months. Insanely duh.
Yes. Yes. I'm like 2.5 months late posting this... Been busy...

So the story is this.

Late April early May this year (yes still within the same year *sarcasm), I made a quick trip with Boo and some of our pals to Boracay.

Flight was a new route Air Asia introduced to Kalibo Airport. It's slightly more direct than flying to Clark, Manila and then another flight transfer to Caticlan Airport.

All aboard! All excited!

We were all hyped up and super excited for this long-awaited beach holiday. I was told (proir this trip) that this was a (cheaper) alternative to Maldives. Hmmm... Let's see shall we...

So, we arrived Kalibo airport and had to take a 2 hours (or was it 1 hour) land transfer to the jetty. At the Caticlan jetty we had to take a ferry transfer to get onto the island.

This was the view that greeted us!

Beautiful! Right? Right?

So, by the time we arrived it was fast approaching sunset. We decided to take it easy (we will be there for 5 days anyway yay!) and took our time getting to our resort, checking in, freshened up and rested a bit before our tummies insisted we go look for dinner.

What did we ended up having as our first meal?

Yellow Cab Pizza!!!
Haha! At least it's not McDonalds (inside joke).

Liked the way they served the pizza.

After dinner, we decided to walk a little bit and explore one side of the beach. So we walked along, met lotsa pedlars, people selling water activities packages (we were looking for a snorkeling and island hopping package), angmoh guy with beagle (inside story), and also quirky and interesting things like this...

Sand castle?

This was done very nicely but you will be charged if you wanna take a photo of it or with it. Managed to sneak a couple of shots before I realised that. Whoops!

The Salmon Sashimi Poster Girl

As declared by Mama D!

Went for a round of salmon sashimi with the usual suspects, minus a few. The salmon was ordered enough for 8 pax but between the 5 of us, we cleaned it all up! Not bad for 1.5 kg of yummy raw salmon!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year peeps!

Oh wait. Hold on. Is it May Already?!? (Omigosh!)


Was so busy did not even notice time flies... real fast! Been an eventful start of the year so far.

Random holiday morning where I wake up super early (even earlier than when I'm supposed to go to work!) coz someone had to leave town to head down South for whole lot of fun (jealous mode on) and I thought might as well catch up with my HKD drama which I missed out for almost and entire month!

Going to have some salmon sashimi goodness later (oh nyums!). Lemme show you what I mean!

Oh nomnomnom...

Quick updates (wanna catch a few winks before salmon time!)

February was tulips for Valentine! Had a quiet day. Lepak-ed and had a simple teocheow porridge for dinner.

Yay! Tulips!

 March was mostly work. Don't wanna post here.

 April was pretty eventful. Started with a 3 year anniversary dinner at Marinis!

Yummers (but super mahal) dinner at Marinis!

Then... decided to "reward" myself with...

The portable instax printer!

We also did a baby shower for a friend (popped a cute baby girl already!)

Pink for girl!

And... a much long awaited beach holiday (Now I can wear the flip-flops Pandora charm!)... This was a beach in Kuantan when I was waaaaaaay younger...

A younger me...

And now, upgraded (a bit lah) to...

BORACAY! Best beach holiday ever!
Not that I have been to many beaches... But first time out of the country beach lah...

Hmmm... ok... blog updated. Now I'm gonna zzz for a bit before salmon time! Toodooloos!
