Well hello there, Boracay!

Just a quick post to let you guys know that I made it to Boracay in one piece! The weather’s great–so far it hasn’t rained, and I actually think my face got a bit sunburnt already. Didn’t bring my laptop so the full post will have to wait ’til I get back to Manila on Friday. For now, I’m enjoying the sound of the waves mixing with this awesome Bossa track, and chilling on my lounge chair with the breeze stirring the air. Hope everyone’s having a great week!:)

Kayangan Lake, Philippines

In anticipation of my beach escapade next week, I’d like to feature some photos of our family trip to Coron, Palawan. It was a first time for all of us, which made the New Year’s treat all the more memorable. Coron is one of the municipalities of Palawan, Philippines. It refers to the biggest town on Busuanga Island, and is also the name of a smaller island nearby. That island is very aptly differentiated as Coron Island, but the town and the island are part of the same municipality. Confusing, isn’t it? In general, though, when people go to Coron, they end up going to both — the town, because most of the accommodations and shops are located there, and the island, because it is home to beautiful beaches, lakes and popular diving sites. There’s much to see and do in Coron, but for now, I want to focus on one of the most unforgettable places we visited during our stay there: Kayangan Lake.
