Coron, Palawan 2015
Jul 5th, 2015 by niceyfemme

It all started with a Marketmanila blog post. I really look up to the man and one day he posted a picture of himself a la James Bond in a beach with the clearest waters and fine white sand. I told myself, “I’m going to that place too.” And made a mental note of the place’s name, CORON, PALAWAN.

I love travelling but of course in real life it’s not very easy to do. I mean it’s not easy to just pack up and leave. First, it’s not cheap even if you choose the most basic options if there’s a number of you in the group and with the hectic-ness of the world today who can go? We did. πŸ™‚

J16

It didn’t hurt that I found some nicely priced airline tickets.

J25

Flight was delayed for a few hours but that didn’t reduce our excitement!

Touch down in Busuanga Airport! We arrived at 5pm and started our tour the next day.

J22

The tourists! πŸ™‚

J23

The knowledgeable tour guide Anthony if I still remember his name right.

J09

My sleepy daughter.

J15

If these photos didn’t make you want to go there then I don’t know what will. πŸ™‚

J12

Just after I booked the tickets I immediately ordered long sleeved rash guard for the family especially for Joleigh, and aqua shoes.

J17

There’s just one thing I didn’t like very much, it’s the sun that’s shining like it’s really mad at us! It really hurt our skin and roasted it in minutes.

J18

Scorching hot!

J02

So we “swam” on the side of the boat. We don’t know how to swim and my Mom and Aunt are really scared about drowning and getting washed away from the shore. They’re always paranoid haha.

J03

Floating. Big accomplishment for them.

J01

She loves the water. Or she just doesn’t know the concept of danger yet.

J24

Joleigh with Lola Precy or Lola P.

She’s already sleepy on the way to the next destination hence the face. To be honest I don’t remember which island is which.

J13

I loved snorkeling! But I didn’t like that it’s rented. (I bought my own now.)

Blue green clear waters. This is the clearest waters I have seen.Β On the way to the next destination.

Set up for lunch on the island.

Breathtaking!

J19

All the time that I was looking at the clear waters I was thinking about the freshest fish and other seafood we could eat!

J06

Took a lot of prodding to get her to get to the water. Even with the life vest my mother still thinks she’ll drown. Can’t blame her though, I still get scared myself.

J08

I love this place!

Mommy’s “floating!”

Exhausted!

J07

Tried fishing with my mini fishing rod and reel. My first ever catch!

J20

We were too tired and hungry. Here we were waiting for our food.

J11

Tired and hungry but happy!

P.S. We’re going back to Coron in a few months!

The Amazing Race in the Philippines
Aug 6th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I know…. This is very old but I haven’t seen this. I tried searching for this online many times but I thought there is none uploaded. Finally, I found them! One of the most exciting season for me and I might be a little biased here hehehhe….

I hope they do go back though and show the world that the image of Manila is not the totality of the Philippines. Philippines is a gorgeous country with all the islands we have (the 7, 100+) and every foreigner who’s able to see Philippines and not only Manila really do say that it is gorgeous and SO UNDERRATED. Blame all the bad press I say. Abu Sayyaff has made us popular in a bad way.

Mommy, Bee and I want to travel all around the Philippines first, with all the gorgeous places to find why go else where first? Maybe after we’re done with the Philippines then we’ll go around the world. All these after we HIT JACKPOT in superlotto or Toto hehehe…

So for those who wasn’t able to catch it years and years ago, well here it is. I love Amazing Race! They rock.

First part, Philippine leg. Getting a flight out of New Zealand to Manila, Philippines.

Arggghhhhh!

I totally need a vacation! I need to escape from all the thinking. I need to escape from myself. I’m tired and exhausted. What to do what to do? I hope there’s Β a legal drug to cure specific problems. πŸ™

I can go somewhere to unwind but I know better. I know this is not the time to spend on vacations no matter how well deserved they may be. If I can splurge I want to Palawan– in Coron. I’ve been to Boracay many times already and even though it’s paradise I want to see another paradise in the Philippines. We are soooo lucky to have been blessed with natural wonders and it’s a pity the world is not aware of this thanks to our reputation. Noynoy Aquino hopefully can do better than the last presidents before him. Or poor Kris.

If I hit the jackpot I’d go to the Caribbean. Just to see how it fares to ours hehehe…

Also, I am the type to go to provinces. I like having a feel of the rural areas. So this Branson vacation packages would be ideal for me to try. We always hear things about LA and New York– of course I want to see them too but I like suburban areas better. Wisteria lane? Yup. Life is going to be fun if you have neighbors like them.
