I'm Off to Boracay... I'll be Back in a Jiffy!!!



This week is a very busy week here at the office so I'm looking forward for the weekend because I'll be in the most famous beach here in the Philippines... Boracay. I have been to this island for about 7x already but I still don't get tired observing the countless developments this little island endure for the past few decades. Even if there are issues whether the small island can sustain the various activities brought about by the boom in the tourism industry in the area no one can really stop the transformation of Boracay into a capitalist haven.

I love Boracay the most when I first saw its somewhat virgin beauty in the summer of 1996 when there is hardly a crowd even during the Holy Week holidays. Too bad I can't post pictures here of my Boracay sojourn in 1996 as the digital camera then is never heard of yet. I hope I can transfer some of my travel pictures taken using a film camera into a digital format so I can post them here in my blog.

So much for being sentimental about the "old" Boracay which I love more than the Boracay of today... I have to live with what that paradise island can still offer and I'm pretty sure that I will still enjoy my experience.

P.S.: I just hope that the f#ck%ng typhoon named Frank don't spoil our vacation. I pray that the prediction of PAGASA will be highly accurate and expect the typhoon to be not in direct threat to the Visayas region.

to all: Maybe it was blessing in disguise that our flight was canceled because of typhoon Frank or else we will just be disappointed. Just got my ticket refunded and just bought for a General Santos ticket instead as I'm never been there :)

I din't know about the typhoon when when I arrived Thursday night in Boracay coming up from Iloilo. Boracay had a lot less damage compared to Kalibo. Just got back to Ohio last night.
