boracay august 2014 part three: astoria boracay x white beach x island hopping

Posted on: September 29, 2014

we went to have lunch at astoria boracay, the place is by the beachfront at station one. it’s a very nice hotel…

it’s sort of extravagant but at the same time minimalist, lol, ano daw? we got to roam around the area a bit, it’s pretty organized, notice the way the beach chairs are all aligned. other stuff that i found interesting were the coconuts with lights, boats with glass bottoms, and a water jar which you use to wash your feet to get rid of the sand… this reminded me a lot of the tsubukai, the ones they use at shrines in japan.

the dining area had fish decor installations, that was nice too. and here’s lunch, probably the most expensive lunch i will ever have… it cost a hotel membership for my dad and tita not to mention several hours of boredom while waiting for the promotions peeps to finish their, uh, negotiations. they have salesmen roaming around and they’d invite you to a free lunch or dinner, jb and i got invited to one of these but it was raining like crazy so we didn’t go. nevertheless, a membership with a hotel with a lot of branches may be good if you have future travel plans. going back to lunch, the choux pastry swan was excellent, the rest were ok though.

finally got to lounge around white beach too. it’s amazing when it’s not raining, the water’s clear and you’ll get to see the sea’s palette. it’s too crowded though, there are lots of people selling stuff, and people taking selfies, and noisy families. if you want to do some beach bumming here, it’s ok but if you want to have some relaxing peace and quiet, there’s almost none.

we went island hopping too. sightseeing on a boat is so much fun, even got to eat ice cream while the rest of my family went snorkeling. i haven’t learned how to swim yet so i passed on that. will learn soon hopefully…

went on lamon mode on ilig iligan beach, last time i ate here, i had chopsuey and sinigang but since dad was treating we had binagoongan, grilled squid, and coconuts! we got an extra plate of grilled squid because dad is such a smooth talker, he probably charmed the waitress, hee hee.

yun lang muna.
