boracay july 2016 x birthday kick 2016

Posted on: October 23, 2016

i usually ignore raffles and stuff like that because you never win anyway, but they frakking called my ticket number and i won a trip to boracay… and if you must know, this happened at work, during our last christmas party, while i was wolfing down the remnants of someone else’s salad, haha.

but then i had no one to bring so i got my office family to come instead… that involved begging several directors and fighting some jedi. i decided to use the prize for my birthday, last july…

now this was my advance party, haha. renz couldn’t come (peace tayo dung, if by any chance, you get to read this, lelz) but jb found a way to include him in the trip.


everything else went smoothly until my inahing manok, got left at the airport, for the love of buddha, haha. so two of my favorite persons couldn’t come to my birthday and it was miserable… somewhat. on a side note, i took a shoefie at naia because #sponsor. (kind ma’am, or sir from vans, i need new skate shoes, pls.)

i landed in kalibo with my… ahem, bodyguards i mean bosses. they are too cute, like bears… we also met with ma’am lyn before boarding the bus to the seaport. it was eventful getting to boracay island, there were tons of screaming kids on the ferry and gorgeous but smelly tourists rode with us to our hotels. by the time i reached our hotel, a few veins were pulsating around my temples, i thought i was having the most depressing birthday ever.

the following morning, which was my birthday, oh surprise! they bought me a fudgee bar, hahaha! jb is such a cheapskate that him buying me anything is a surprise. i highly appreciated this.

we had a hearty breakfast at don vito ristorante somewhere in the middle of station 2 and well… tocino and mango juice are kind of far from being italian but eating with good friends… on your birthday… was exceptionally great. had a new friend too, gracia, who is annielyn’s friend. she smokes, i vape, we good yo, huzzah!


on a somewhat related note, i ate like a cow in boracay, or at least gorged down anything i fancied like the churros above.


we went island hopping, i’ve done this so many times though, that i was beggining to get bored, i was just looking forward to having cake on the island. i badgered everyone to get me cake when the activity ends… they kind of ignored me, all afternoon.


paano ba patitigilin ang bagyo kung ang gusto mo lang ay ambon? it was raining at times that afternoon, i felt like a chilled margarita glass. my birthday was turning out to be sucky and also, i still hadn’t had cake.

when we got back to our hotel, i got the most pleasant surprise from my inahing manok (all my pixxors with her suck, so i’ll just add the ones from antique, heehee), she actually booked another flight and bought me cake, and everyone was in on it. i was so psyched! …and since they deprived me all afternoon, i was elated.

we ate at the old all you can eat seafood restaurant, where we ate the first time we went to boracay and bought trinkets and pasalubong after. this was one of those memorable birthdays, i wish i’d get to see everyone on the next one.

yun lang.
