Travel: Boracay Philippines Day 3, Island Hopping


The third day in Boracay is Island Hopping day!

I'm very excited on this coz after Mabul Island, I already in love with snorkeling and very excited to see the sea creatures beneath the deep sea! Awww.. 

Island Hopping is basically we hop from one island to another. 

The first stop and the seaside is so awesome!!! It looks like a picture of drawing, and look at the crystal clear water, goddamn awesome!!

We sat on a boat and start our island hopping after that.

A boat that look like this.

Selfie with the breathtaking scenery.

Top: I Love Boracay T-shirt bought in D'Talipapa the day before.
Inside: of coz full set swim suit lah! Lol

Puka cave is where our first stop and is around P20 per trip to the cave.


Outside the cave was a breathtaking scenery.

Group picture before enter the cave.

Then inside the cave was quite a disappointment.

Show us this kind of crystal inside the cave.

After the Puka Cave, we hopped in to our boat to continue our island hopping and we went Crystal Cove this time.

Heading to the Crystal Cove

And another scene that we WOW on.

Way to cove 1 and 2, but we only got to see the cove 1 instead of both. T___T

Look at the picture and you will understand how excited I am to see all this by my own eyes. *blink eyes*

The seaside outside Puka Cave!

And I so in love!

Continue with Crystal Cove, and so sorry that I'm blogging using phone so the picture is disorganized lol

Another crystal clear water, y their water so clean one?

The best selfie scene ever.

Even their wall are unique.

Blue, green,light blue and green again..

Something that look like Maori statue

The sign that make this place awesome!

Wefie at Crystal Cove!!

We went snorkeling like twice in this whole island hopping journey, however, it wasn't a good one.

The first stop was in the middle of nowhere, and there is not much things except the coral and some small fishes. Moreover, Bee doesn't get to snorkel because her snorkeling set spoil and the water kept go into her mouth. Damn!!!

Then second stop was the  Crocodile island where tragedy happened here. Everyone was so panic and don't know what to do at all.

We went in the water without any delay like first one, and Ting was the first one to swim over the boat and got too far away. I catched up with her but something bad just happened. After I swam toward her, the wave got strong, like real strong, so I turned back toward the boat. However, the wave was too strong, and I couldn't even reach the boat even though I swam so hard.

Just imagine those that don't know how to swim, it got really dangerous.

I saw the rest of them was in the boat, and I couldn't reach there plus Ting, her sis and friend is now nowhere. They had been together and the wave was too strong for them to even swim back omg!

The boat driver came and save me, and he like my angel that day. Save me and I nearly kill him coz I'm too panic after drinking the sea water in the middle of swimming back. Gosh! When the person asked me to swim back myself, I got really scare and said I cannot! I cannot! The person wanted to save the three of them that time but I couldn't even calm myself omg!

I just hope three of them were alright that time after I have been save by one boat pass by. I got really worried for Ting and the rest. Sitting alone in the boat of strangers make me feel so weird, and everyone stared at me like I'm monkey from the sea. Wth?

And I remembered one of them just asked me something regarding to the incident. They were discussing on whether our boat drive can successfully save Ting and the rest or not, and they were discussing as if I don't know what they were talking. =___=

I understand mandarin OK?

Anyway, after I got up in that boat, I saw Ting and the rest being save by our boat driver. The feeling of relief just came to me, lucky nothing has happened. Thank God and Guan Yin!

Everyone laugh out real loud after I went back to our boat, the feeling of relief from everyone. The boat driver was really mad at us coz he said we can only swim inside the bamboo stick, but he doesn't even mention before T____T


We were told that there is some real dealth incidence happened at there before, but I guess the news has been covered up. Dangerous.

The wefie we had before the incident happened and we were too cold with the strong wind!

Selfie in the sea, spot me?

Left to right: Lee Chin, Ting and me! Bee wasn't here coz her snorkeling set spoil remember?

This is taken on our first snorkeling.

Picture taken by Ting Go Pro!

After the second incident, we got really afraid of wave and refuse to go in to the water again. Quite sad things actually.

Anyway, the island hopping was quite a disappointment for the snorkeling part.

There were be another activity after the island hopping... Stay tuned for another blog post.

Travel : Boracay Philippines day 2

Hello everyone!

Well, all of us go on diet plan after the first foodie day in Boracay. We didn't even realise how much foods we had on the first day until I blogged it. Gosh! Is four meal a days excluded the ice creams and dessert please. Lol! 

Anyway, good diet plan come with good water activities yo!

Woke up early in the morning (probably around 7am), get ourselves ready and let's go for the water activities. We had flying fish and banana boat (P250 for 15mins) that day, and honestly banana boat was so-so. It was basically a two bananas tube for us to sit on it, and the boat started to drive us all the way from one place to another. And we can only self-high on the banana boat. Lol!

The weather was all right for the water activities!

Wefie after the games!

We are ready for the next game!

So the next game was the flying fish (P600 for 15mins), the most exciting water game in my life. No joke! It seriously make all of us laugh plus shout plus move here and there just for that. Omg! But unfortunately no picture was taken coz Ting's Go Pro might drop if she brought it along. Lol!

 Basically it looks like that when the flying fish fly.

We need to like hold on really tie just to let ourselves not to fall in the water, unfortunately I was down when Ting told the guy to let her down (pointed at Sheng Yi) T___T I wanted to hold on tie but I just gave up at the end, and I don't know I can continue to play it one. Haiz! Should play the last round with them, y the boat driver never tell? Lol!

Anyway, this is super fun, highly recommended by me!!!!

Before the flying fish and the banana boat we actually went for helmet diving (P500 in 15mins)! Omgggg!! My very first time but it so excited!

The person will let us go in to the sea first then he will put the helmet on while we going down. I was really nervous I would say, not because of water but the fear of deep sea. Lol! My first time ma, what you expect?

The fear stayed there for like probably few second then yohoo.. The fishes are so beautiful omg!
 Wefie with Sheng Yi

 I love the fishes! All like nemo's friends, I mean the colour, and some of them bite my finger for food. Mad cute!

 Before we headed down the deep sea, let's us take a picture!

 Tofie with Ting's GoPro! How we wish Jen and Shin are here with us.

 The diver distributing bread..

 And we got to feed all of them.. Awwww!!!

Can I go again for this helmet diving? Y fishes so cute one?

 After the exhausted flying fish, banana boat and helmet diving, we had a picture and went back hotel to clean ourselves before lunch and THE NEXT GAME!

Yes! That's the next game yo! Clue: the longest!

Tofie at the Hawaii BBQ.

The seafood BBQ, and every food in Boracay taster almost the same!

And the best thing in Boracay is that they served the best fruit juice ever! Mad refreshing and real!!!

The Tomatoes Chicken rice, and it basically tastes like Ketchup. Lol!
Before we headed to Hawaii BBQ, we get ready our postcard to be post out to fellow Tomo and my friend, Yong and Siang Ming.

PS: it spent like one month just to reach our house. Goddamn slow!

Alright, here the destination for our next game, guess what? Or you know already? Hahahaha!

The Zipline (P900)!
Selfie with the view behind and you can see I'm goddamn scare. Fear of height always is my weakness! Ahhh..

 Basically it is like we hanging on a clothes or something and fly like a superman!

PS: I do not have any picture of me flying coz we bought the video one! Lol!

The video is so funny, I think I had the ugliest face among all of them. I'm so scare but in the end it is alright coz I was too tired already lol!

 Then we need to sit the shaking cable car back to our first destination, and I'm real scare of this. Because I hate to hang too long on this cable car, the slower it goes, the scarier it will be. >.<

We conquer our fear or should I said I conquered my fear! Keep calm..

After all this, wefie everywhere.

Group photo with the breathtaking scenery!

Tofie while waiting the video to be save in the CD.

Mad breathtaking scenery!

After all this activities, we headed to their famous wet market D'Talipapa. It is the biggest wet market in Boracay!

Where you need to bargain like hell just to buy the seafoods and it is the place where lots of bloggers and TV programme recommended. Nah!!!!

Fresh scallop

Fresh big clam.

Fresh crab!

One thing that you need to do is to bargain as much as you can, and if you don't like this stall just go for others. I saw one programme said that we need to purchase from each of the stall, nah! No need! Just get whatever in one stall is alright.

After all this bargaining process, we headed to the opposite food stall for cooked food.

And this is where all the programme host, bloggers recommended, the Paluto! Lol!

To be honest, I don't recommend this shop for some of the reasons. Here goes...
This small clam tastes alright, and it is so fresh! Fresh from the wet market ( all their seafoods is not from Boracay by the way).

The first dish is a wow and we are pretty foresee for the next dishes...
And all we got is this sweet sour big prawn that tastes weird!

Then the oystel that cannot compete with the one I had in Sekinchan. Double sadness!

Then our favorite turned out to be a shit! Seriously! All the crab intestine is still there, and according to my aunty sometimes they would just BBQ the whole crab without cleaning it. Omg, crazy or what? How to eat then?

I seriously cannot accept, and everyone got so sad coz even the simplest BBQ crab can be so shit. Sigh!

Conclusion, don't go there anymore and I don't know whether is blogger or the programme host lying for that. Arghhhh!!!

We didn't satisfied with the food in D'Talipapa so we went for another restaurant to fill up our grumpy stomach.

CYMA is another highly recommended by fellow blogger, and it is another disappointment for all of us. T______T

The environment is very nice and it is basically a Greek cuisine restaurant.

Wefie with the ang mo behind hahahaha!! They automatically pose in our wefie when I shouted selfie! Lol! They are so cute!!!

We ordered the famous flaming cheese, and they shouted "opa" when they burned this thing hahaha! Very excited but...

Camp fire burning!!!

The flaming cheese tastes just like CHEESE =____=

The appetizers that considered acceptable.

And this BBQ chicken with potatoes.

And I love this the most.

The dessert that I'm disappointed on. Why my dessert doesn't tastes that good? That's my favorite part of the meal sigh!

Basically the CYMA is not really suitable for all of us as we really not Greek type of people. Lol!

We went to the famous sand castle in Boracay after that, and take a picture for P20 per person.

This is a must in Boracay as they said. LOL!

Group picture!

I was really tired that time and insisted to have a nice place to sit down and chillax.

So here we go, the McDonald! They served the Apple shake thingy that tastes ain't good at all.

I felt so dizzy all the way from the sandcastle to the McDonald station plus we need to walk all the way back to our hotel make me feel like wanna cry! Lol!!!

Weak people always complain hahaha!

Anyway, that's the summarize of day 2 in Boracay. Quite fun and basically we were quite satisfied with the water activities especially the zipline and FLYING FISH!!!!! Worth it. If you happened to be there, don't forget about this. Highly recommended!! But the foods emmm.. No comment coz I freaking don't like it!!!

Ok spent like two days to complete this... I need some rest now bye!
