Hotspot (Boracay Expedition)

Via Zest Air (delayed as usual), we travelled south to Kalibo.  From there, a van transferred us from Kalibo to Caticlan, probably an hour or so.  Then arrived and met with the client Discovery Shores.  They were the ones who arranged our transportation and accommodations.  If you have the luxury to afford their rates then better check this site: =)

Boracay is a small island of the Philippines located approximately 315 km (196 mi) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines.  The island comprises the barangays of Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak municipality of Malay, province of Aklan. The island is administered by the Philippine Tourism Authority and the provincial government of Aklan.

2011 was actually a blast.  I never thought that I will end this year by travelling down south cost-free; expressing my deepest gratitude to my former colleague, RSB.  The best part of this trip is that it is a one-day work engagement forecasted to a week-long vacation.  Pigging out (seafood galore) was actually the main activity as opposed to swimming, which I am not really keen on.  Snorkelling and island hopping are the only personal costs we incurred.  And damn, I really hate saltwater for giving me rushes or any activities related to it for making me woozy; but as the saying goes, just make the most out of it.  Albeit crowded, splendour still one can utter with the dusk over the horizon close within our reach.

I enjoyed your company, I genuinely did and I genuinely am.  Should I be given a chance to rectify things out, I will make it up to you.  Unfortunately, there’ll be none. The oxymoron of being the best and the worst still applies and I am either stuck or at Newton’s first law of motion.
