I can't believe it's been more than a week since we flew to Boracay for Labor Day weekend. Exactly a week ago, at this hour, I was
I must say, Boracay isn't quite what I expected. The way my friends raved about it during their previous trips, people saying it's paradise--it's not. The beach front is full of establishments, it's noisy, and people are just walking everywhere. There's just no sense of relaxation there. And I'm pretty sure there wasn't a bar by the shore in paradise. Now, don't get me wrong; Boracay is beautiful. The sand is inimitable, and the water, pool-like. Maybe I'm just overwhelmed with the people, the parties, and such. Last December, in Anvaya, Subic, we just laid by the beach, listened to music, had a few drinks, played some volleyball, and I loved it. It was perfect. Same with when my friends and I rented a beautiful beach house in Calatagan a year ago. It was so relaxed and peaceful; that night we even made a bonfire by the beach. I didn't feel that during my stay in Boracay. The most relaxation I got was those few hours of hiatus in our hotel room watching a good episode of Glee.
The best part though, the thing I really loved, was the food! My favorites would have to be Zuzuni's Lamb Keftedes (I love lamb; one reason why I can never be a vegan) their delectable Matis Chocolate Sin (rightfully named), and Lemon iCafe's Fresh Tuna Sandwich. Their dessert, Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse, is also heavenly. I usually do not like peanut butter, but this one I just had to make an exception for.
