Boracay Series Part 5: 12-12-12 (and until past 12mn) in Island Paradise

This post is part of a series on our trip to Boracay in December 2012, during my four-week home leave. This is my second chance to visit this island paradise, while it’s a first time for Buboy. And we were both looking forward to experiencing that indeed, It’s More Fun in The Philippines! :)


At san ka na naman pupunta aber?

Whew! Sensya naman at ngayon lang ulit nakapagpost. Ngayon lang nakaahon from paper mountains at work, hehe. Tsaka nagloloko yung luma kong laptop, mukhang gagraduate na. :p

And so without further ado, let’s continue how we spent the rest of 12-12-12 in Boracay…

After our ATV activity, we rode the shuttle back to White Beach. Kuya Arnel with his assistant (yes, may assistant si Kuya, sosyal), led us to the registration station/booth for Helmet Diving/Reef Walking.

Wallet damage = Php 700/pax. Yes, mahal na raw sya ngayon unlike before at Php 200-350/pax lang. Oh well, once in a blue moon lang naman so carry na.

Note that it was super windy that time, nerbyos levels ang Buboy while we rode our speedboat to the “diving site”, hehehe.


smiling maski super hangin levels

Walang sinayang na sandal (at dahil hapon na rin noh), we were given safety instructions, blah blah blah & then went under water in no time. 🙂


Hawakan mo ko baka tangayin ng pating! :p

Our underwater Kuya guide (who was pogi btw, awww) took our pics & videos while we fed the fishes (fish or fishes ang plural? whateva).


Happy tinapay fiesta!

Bentang benta ang bread crumbs namin ni Buboy sa mga fishes, at tuwang tuwa naman kami sa kanilang vivid colors, 🙂


parang magandang negosyo ang bakery dito ah

I just noticed that there were no significant “reefs” in the area. Kuya guide showed us some but I find them ” quite small,” well compared to what we’ve seen sa Al Dar (Bahrain) at opkors, what we see on TV, hehe.


Sige, up to the last crumb! 🙂

We finally finished our fish feeding activity hehe, picture picture until it was time to go up,


smiling pero nininerbyos, pak!

O sya, quota na sa pics, ahon na! 🙂

It was almost 4pm when we were dropped off to the beach. We agreed with Kuya Arnel to meet early tomorrow for next set of activities, 🙂


Dripping wet pero happy (asan ang twalya mo bata ka!)

At dahil napagod/nagutom, we went to the first food stall that we saw – Sorbetes! 🙂


Ice Cream!

We walked along the beach to dry ourselves and sightseeing ulit.

We passed by several ongoing weddings, we paused to check out the bride and the ceremony (kami na ang usyoso hehe). Lovely, lovely weddings, sigh…. 🙂


Just one of the several weddings along the beach 🙂

At nagutom ulit (hindi kinaya ng Sorbetes lang), we saw a signage for a newly opened McDonald’s sa may Regency so we went in (Bihira kami kumain sa McDo dine sa Bahrain, we prefer the local fast food Jasmi’s) 🙂


Quarter Pounder & Big Mac meals 🙂

After our Mc Do meal, we went back to the beach for a sunset dip (ansarap ng tubig at walang sunburn hehe!), then decided to make sandcastles.

Kaso, dahil wala pareho kaming walang talent sa sandcastle making, eto lang ang nakayanan namin, sensya na… 🙂


12-12-12 in Boracay Island, Philippines

Buboy wasn’t satisfied with what we came up so he decided to “improve” it. Ayun, inabot na ng dilim at high tide! :p


Tama na oy, High Tide na!

When Buboy finally gave up, we went back to our cottage to freshen up and rested a bit.

Then we went out again (bago makatulog) to check out Boracay at night, 🙂


Fire dancers during dinner buffet


Kuya, ingat ha. Bagong treatment ang buhok ko. :p

We walked going to Station 1 and passed by numerous dinner buffet offerings (nagasurvey na rin which to try later hehe).


Sandbar – cool interior

It was high tide that evening, we removed our flip flops & walked barefoot (mas mahirap pag nakatsinelas).

While walking we saw this fireworks sa may dulo ng Station 1, not so grand, pero tuwa na kami dahil bihira yan sa Bahrain, hehe.


Our destination: Guilly’s Island, 🙂


We’re here!


Tanduay Ice + Sisig = Yes!

Php 30/btl or Php 360/bucket waaaaaa…. sana ganire rin ang presyo sa Bahrain, hehehe!


Dance crowd


With Buboy’s cousin Jonathan & his gf

We had several rounds then decided to move on to Epic (curious e, hehe)


Epic Bar, Boracay

Well, the interiors are nice, nice DJ music (but I think we just preferred live bands gaya dine sa BAH hehe)


Christmas tree by the bar

The place was quite packed nga pala, we came around midnight na so we just had our drinks by the bar.


Curfew, curfew! :p

Had a few rounds and then called it a night, hik! Thank u 12-12-12.

Tomorrow we go boating / island hopping / snorkeling! 🙂
