Friends, Fun, Fringes at Boracay Part 1

Let’s do this the Taglish (tagalog-english) way 🙂 Ang dami dami kong gustong sabihin about this trip of ours, hopefully wala akong makalimutan. I can say that this trip was priceless and more than that. Up to now, pag naiisip ko kung ano ang mga nangyari, napapatawa pa din ako ng sobra. Alam mo yung kahit mag isa ka lang, you still kept on laughing your ass out? Haha! Yes ganon ang effect ng trip nato sakin.

I have been to Boracay only once, that was year 2007 when I graduated from college. I had a blast on my first trip, masaya din kasi ang mga taong kasama ko nun. Iba talaga pag “cool” ang friends mo at walang ‘kill joy’ kumbaga. So, let’s start this!

Batch 1 Boracay (1)

This is my friend Gen Tungala, siya ang leader ng trip na ito. I still remember, nag kagulo na lang kami bigla nung nakita naming may seat sale sa Cebu Pacific. Syempre, book agad kami flight papunta (thank you Anna Reyes sa iyong plastic card na laging maasahan) Good thing may nakita naman kaming flight pabalik, through Air Phil nga lang 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (2)

Ang balingkinitan na babaeng ito ay walang iba kundi si Ami Cenina at ng aming leader na si Gen. Amie exudes the true beauty of a Filipina. She is my plane mate and during our short conversation, I learned more things about her. I told her before that she is one of the prettiest faces I have seen here in the country when she became my Monita sa Christmas Party namin last December. That’s true, and all our friends would agree. She’s the type of girl that you can label “Graced still even under pressure”.

Batch 1 Boracay (3) A couple having a pictorial while the tide is still low.

Batch 1 Boracay (4)My friend Bianca was so kind, pinahiram pa niya ako ng SLR niya. So needless to say, ako ang naging official photographer, which I enjoyed!I Boracay as a whole will always be a fun subject, add mo pa ang mga COOL people na ito. From left to right, Ami Cenina, Jude Sosa, Hilda Villegas, Anna Reyes and Gen Tungala, they are the ones who made this trip memorable.

Batch 1 Boracay (5) Oh diba? full of buhangin lang ang peg ni Hilds at Jude? Ganung kasarap mag swim dito. Walang sawang swimming!

Batch 1 Boracay (6) Since I can’t take photos of myself sa beach, eto ang pic ko. DYI lang yan, fringed tops na perfect for summer. Napanood ko sa Youtube at hayun, a weekend before this trip, nagulat na lang ang nanay ko at mga kapatid ko, na halos lahat na lang ng damit ko eh ginugupit ko na. Malamang walang maniniwala sakin kung sabihin ko na hindi ako nag shop before this trip, haha, so yes, I did buy a few clothes and shades online. But I know I needed to somehow save para sa nalalapit kong kaarawan.

Batch 1 Boracay (7) Pretty faces by the beach 🙂 I know I already introduced Gen and Amie. I still got three left, lower portion (left to right) 🙂 Christine Sosa, we fondly call her Jude is a person who can light up any crowd. Pede na kaming tandem ng comedy bar actually, wala ng tatalo pa sa mga pick up lines niya! At kung ma malungkot ka, kausapin mo lang siya, siguradong sasaya ka.

Hilda Villegas, the stranger in my life, haha, pero naging friends na kami this year 2013. Haha! We had a lot of solo dates na, most of the time, puro kainan! I was with her on Christmas eve, she knows me well I guess even in a short span of time.

Anna Reyes, mas gala pa sakin ang batang ito, I tell you! Talaga naman nangongolekta ng Starbucks tumbler with the names of the country in it. Tama yan, Travel while you are young and full of energy, para pag tanda puro back track na lang ng events 🙂

Hopefully, hindi magalit ang cast ng Boracay trip dahil may short introduction pa ako for them, haha!

Batch 1 Boracay (8) Nakikiupo lang po sa magarang upuan, sa Station 2 lang kami nag stay. I know the resorts at Station 1 are the finest, pero sa dinami dami ng planned travels nitong mga kasama ko, kelangan mag tipid. Besides, kahit ako, ayokong gumastos ng malaki. Hindi naman kami mag s-stay ng matagal sa Hotel dahil bawal mag pahinga sa Boracay. Larga lang ng larga, beach bum ‘don, kain dito at lakad kung saan saan. So why rent an expensive place? (Saka na siguro pag honeymoon ko na, haha).

Batch 1 Boracay (9)The walking game, matira matibay! At mukhang ako ang natira. May nunal kasi ako sa paa, and my mom told me, yan ang reason kung bat ka gala! 🙂 Thanks mom, appreciate it!

Batch 1 Boracay (10) I caught her on an early Yoga, gusto ko sanang maki pose kay ate, kaso ang layo ko sa mga friends ko para mag ask ng favor na i take nila ako ng photo ala yoga.

Batch 1 Boracay (11) Sa susunod na buhay, I will have that kind of bod, ngayon, kakain muna ako ng kakain. Kaw na mag jog sa Boracay, sosyal!

Batch 1 Boracay (12) Ohhhhhhh! coconut trees! Wait for our exclusive video, haha! exclusive talaga? of course!

Batch 1 Boracay (13) Who wouldn’t want to experience the powdery white sand of Boracay over and over again?

Batch 1 Boracay (14) February na, no it’s not only love month, Summer na din!!!

Batch 1 Boracay (15) Jude and her blissful moment. Chill lang ang peg.

Batch 1 Boracay (16)Sexiness on the beach!

Batch 1 Boracay (17) Good thing tumawa si Anna, caught on cam ka! Effort less lang oh!

Batch 1 Boracay (18)

Huwag kayong mag alala… haha, eto na ang solo ko! Dahil sa aking tuluyang pagtaba, kelangan ko ng mga pose na makapag tatago ng aking love handles. Bet niyo ba ang pag higa ko sa sand. San ka pa? with matching reflection yan. (I know I know, natural lang talaga akong maarte, pagbigyan niyo na ako, please!, haha).

Batch 1 Boracay (19) Best fruit shake ba kamo? Jonah’s na!

Batch 1 Boracay (20)More to come! haha, sorry wala kasi akong sawang mag pose (big thanks to Amie and Gen for the support)  Lalaban ka ba sa Bob Marley shirt ko?

Batch 1 Boracay (21) Eh ang saya ko lang diba?

Batch 1 Boracay (22) Pero mas masaya sakin si Gen, obvious naman eh! 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (23) While waiting for their orders, pictorial muna.

Batch 1 Boracay (24)What a scenery! beach umbrella!

Batch 1 Boracay (25) Breakfast at Amie’s

Batch 1 Boracay (26) Habang busy ako sa pag langoy with Gen and Jude, eto naman ang pinagkakaabalahan nila. Mag jump shot ng walang humpay.

Batch 1 Boracay (27) Oh isa pa! May masakit pang nararamdaman si Hilds niyan ha, pero naka jump shot pa din? 🙂 You already!

Batch 1 Boracay (28)Feeling ko isa akong lumpia, kaya bet ko ang mag roll sa sands ng walang sawa. Eto ang kinalabasan ko. Isang tustadong lumpia na feeling maputi dahil sa puting buhagin.

Batch 1 Boracay (29) Sabi ko naman sa inyo, sobrang saya ko pag asa beach ako, nothing compares to the feeling of the sand on your feet, the wind on your hair and the sun on your face.

Batch 1 Boracay (30)Kung ang lahat eh busy sa pag jujump shot, eto ang signature pose ko sa mga beach. 🙂 Baliktarin mo mang ang mundo, masaya pa din!

Batch 1 Boracay (31) Be happy! Bawal ang sad sa Boracay, may multa!

Batch 1 Boracay (32) Sa malayo, tinatawag ako ng pole na ito. Hindi namin alam, Lifeguard pole pala. Kala mo naman pag aari namin kung maka pose kami. Buti na lang mabait si manong lifeguard at hinayaan lang niya kami.

Batch 1 Boracay (33) Pumo pose pa eh, haha!

Batch 1 Boracay (34) Beach happy!

Batch 1 Boracay (35)Crazy friend of mine and her crazy pose. 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (36)Talk about body symmetry? She owned it!

Batch 1 Boracay (37) Kelangan laging nakataas ang braso at kamay ko, kung hindi… mukha akong palo palo sa tabi ni Anna, ke payat naman kasi ng batang ito! 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (38) At anong masasabi mo sa blogger pose niya?

Batch 1 Boracay (53)Ang maitim kong paa 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (54) Sunsets at Boracay never fail to amaze one’s soul.

Batch 1 Boracay (55) At pag katapos ng aming nakakapagod na pag lalakad, pag swi-swimming ng walang humpay, oras na para mag hanap ng makakain.

Batch 1 Boracay (56) As we walk through Station 2 and 3, I got caught up with the lights. Iba’t ibang lights, restaurants, bars, stores and all that. Night life in here is so alive, countless things to do, have a henna or a real tattoo. Braids? Check! Fire zippers, countless! Shopping, endless!

Batch 1 Boracay (57) Nice lanterns and pretty ladies.

Batch 1 Boracay (79) Fire zippers 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (80) Batch 1 Boracay (81)This time, hindi na free, you have to give a donation to have a photo taken here. Which is fine, group shot naman kasi.

Batch 1 Boracay (92)Dancing the night away 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (93)Medyo malayo kami sa stage so I opted to clear out the tables and make our own space.  Asa isang sulok lang kasi kami but that wouldn’t stop us from partying all night.

Batch 1 Boracay (94) Soon, we have our own crowd. We met a few good people, Rebecca, Carlo and Neil. Ganyan kasaya ang circle namin 🙂

Batch 1 Boracay (95) Batch 1 Boracay (96) Hindi talaga ako umuupo, bawal yun, haha!

Batch 1 Boracay (97)This is where I laugh the most! Nakilala namin ang One Direction sa Boracay! LOL! Isa na lang ang kulang kumpleto na sila.

Batch 1 Boracay (98)“Baby you light up my world like nobody else”

  2. Hi Joycelyn,
    Soooo fun!! Great job, chica!
    I love the setting of course, but what I love more is the bond between you ladies. We need to honor other women, whether a stranger or the special ladies in your life. Gossip,fighting,greediness and jealousy only hurts.
    You are all beautiful ladies.:)

    1. Hello there Barb,

      Glad you loved this post (although it’s quite long, haha!) These ladies were awesome. I love being around women who knows how to have fun but still value their self worth. We should not create room for the jealousy part, that would only ruin good times. 🙂

      Love, Joycelyn

    1. June! Thank you so much for reading. As much as I don’t want to upload all these photos, I feel like I am gonna miss sonething if I omit one. Thank you for your scrolling patience :))) appreciate it! July

  3. I always love your Marimar moments. 😀
    This is such a fun posts! Daming nakangiti.
    I love it when the tide is sightly low. Tamang tama talaga para sa photo ops.
    That’s it! Boracay is next! It looks to me it’s not as crowded as I dread it to be.
    Salamat for convincing me more and more.

    1. Haha! My Marimar posts talaga? Mas seksi sakin ng onti si Marimar, haha! Pero gusto ko yan tawag mo sa mga beach poses ko. Lol! Up to know, I still have this weird smile on my face whenever I remember how fun this trip was. My friends were beyond amazing!!!

      Please please visit Boracay soon, it’s enchanting beauty will draw you closer to nature. Glad I convinced you ^^
