Boracay November 2011 (Day 2)

Day 2 - Skimboarding!

We woke up kinda late 'coz of the rainy weather. We we're off to swim when some staff of Astoria Hotel talked to us and invited us for a free lunch buffet in exchange for a 90-minute presentation. Well of course, we availed it. We listed our names, and while waiting for lunch time, we just walked by the beach. Then we encountered someone who's so good at skimboarding. We got curious about it and he offered to teach us for Php 300. However, we haggled to Php 200. So he lent us his skimboard and taught the three of us just for that price haha!



1 hr, 1 board, 1 instructor, 3 newbies = Php 200!:)


 it's fun! (even if I fell of the board thrice! LOL)

 cousins

 cute Korean kid ;)

 love the background!:)

After more than an hour of skimboarding, we went back to Astoria for the free lunch buffet. After lunch, the manager talked to us and offered us certain packages which really attracted us. However, we were not able to avail it because it has to be paid right then and there either in cash or credit card. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to pay off my card before leaving for Boracay and I didn't bring that much cash also. But the good thing was, the hotel manager only talked to us for 15 mins and not 90 mins! haha! So what a FREE buffet lunch that was!:)


After lunch, we went back to our room to rest for a bit. Then we went out to swim 'til sunset! We were just at the beach swimming and taking lots of underwater photos. It was really fun and relaxing! 


 1st try FAIL haha


 they were so good posing underwater!

underwater breakdance!

 haha bully!

mastered the skimboard

After swimming, we went back to our room to take a shower and rest. It was raining that time so we can't go out. When the rain stopped, we left our place and headed to the pre-wedding dinner of our friend Haroun and her fiance Vicky. It was held at the place of the girl who's originally from Boracay. Everyone who's attending the wedding the next day were all there. A compatibility game between the bride-to-be and the groom-to-be was also conducted.


 Almeric didn't wear a top and remained ashamed the whole night!:))

 yummmeeehhh!

 dinner

 compatibility test

 few messages from the couple


Since the dinner ended quite early, we headed to Juice Bar to end the night. It was a very relaxing night, while sitting on bean bags and sipping cocktails. We also enjoyed people watching, most especially those who've been drinking the flaming tower also known as the "F*ck You Archie". haha!:))



 ccccrrraaaazzzzyyyy!!!



And at 1:30am, we all decided to go back to our rooms since the wedding the next day would be so early. However, when we got back to our room, we chatted 'til 3am! So again, we were not able to sleep a bit earlier. haha!
