It took us 2 hours and 45 minutes from NAIA Terminal 2, Philippine Air Lines (PAL) Domestic, to get to our destination, Boracay Regency Beach Resort and Convention Center (Boracay Regency). This is actually an unplanned vacation. It just came out of the blue. My husband and I even fought about it because this weekend getaway was ill-timed. The truth is I am swamped with work and just a day of absence from work will result in significant backlog that I will have to make up when our vacation is over.
But we soon got over our petty quarrel, and so here we are breathing in the beauty of Boracay for the very first time. My husband and I are both busy bodies. However, this time around, we decided to give ourselves a much-needed break.
We were early at NAIA Terminal 2, 6am to be exact. Our flight was at 9am, but it was delayed because according to the stewardess, the ramp was busy. This was our son’s first time to ride a plane, and he was so amazed, excited and happy. Only when he felt lightheaded after eating peanuts did he stop being so hyper and fell asleep in my arms.
By the time we arrived at the hotel (2:30pm), we were already famished, and I bet you, we ate lunch like we did not know each other. In other words “galit-galit” (we’re at war). LOL! We finished everything we ordered (lechon kawali and pinakbet) in no time!
By 4pm, my son was already at the beach with his Dad while my sister and I had our own photo shoot nearby. Never mind if I forgot to bring an anti wrinkle cream. What matters is we’re here in Boracay and we’d do as we please.
Then, after swimming, we decided to walk the long stretch of powdery white sand beach to find a really nice but affordable place to eat. We ended up dining at Bugs Grill because we noticed they have a very long queue of hungry customers, so the place must be good. We loved their shrimps, grilled clams and oysters, kare-kare and fruit salad. Because it’s an eat-all-you-can restaurant, I totally forgot about my low-cholesterol, low-rice diet today. LOL!
After eating, the little boy was already sleepy, and hubby volunteered to accompany my son to our hotel room so he could watch TV, too. Meanwhile, my sister and I watched a live performance of fire dancers and a slow rock band. I never thought I’d enjoy the show but I did. As a matter of fact, we stayed watching these performers for 2 hours.
