Crazy Friends are True Friends

 "Friends come and go!. Lollipops stay wet and sticky." - Khen :D  
We call ourselves the Lollipop Gang. :) I honestly don't know how we came up with that name. haha:D But all I know is that we are CRAZY, RETARDS AND WEIRDOS. :))

We do crazy things in public and not caring because we're together. We laugh our ass out like there's no tomorrow. We don't don't get offended when we insult one another, in fact we just smile and say something even more offensive. :) And when it comes to serious matter or even when the world is crumbling, they will be there to help and maintain  stability and happiness.:)

WE never imagined that we'll be this close. It started from random night outs to seeing each other EVERY WEEKENDS CONSISTENTLY FOR 3 MONTHS now. Even if we live far from each other, even if we are broke we still meet because we live by this quote: "If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse." :)
 My weekend will not be complete without seeing them and without hearing them laugh.
We call ourselves Bs short for Bitches haha:D this was taken last summer:) we miss van so much:) btw, she lives 1135 km away from us:) L-R danella,me,Cielo, Kimy and Van


That epic fail night because we had series of unfortunate events. After this incident, we decided to see each other every weekends:)    
 I wish we'd grow old friends together. We would hangout and talk. Maybe we could even bring our grandchildren along and they would ask, "How long have you been friends?” And we’ll smile and say, “Almost forever.”

"Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end."-unknown
serious faces o.O
not so wacky faces:))
I love my friends and will stand by them until they fall in love or get old and become gross. :D

My Cutiepatootie Little Niece ^^

Her real name is Amethyst Mae. Sometimes we call her Mimay and Ruvi (combination of my parents' names Ruel and Vilma. My sister made up that name.^^) but most of the time I call her tabachingching. hehe:)

My little niece is our little boss. She's the perfect example of minority rule in the house.:) She wants to be carried all the time but she's too heavy! She weighs 7 kg now at 4 months. That's why whenever I play with her I get muscle pain from carrying her. ^^

But the most rewarding thing about her is that she stays up late up night waiting for everyone to come home from work before she sleeps.She's indeed a stress reliever!:)

  She really has a special way of adding joy in every single day. :)And whenever she smiles it brightens up our day.:) That's why my whole family is crazy over her. We are just so blessed to have her. ^^

I dolled her up on my cousin's wedding and she was the star of the day!:) 
Her evolution of smile:))
Baby drool!:)) 
A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above, a handful of happiness, a heart full of love.:)

Island of Love

Hi guys! This is going to be my first blog about travel :)

I never thought that I'll fall in love with this place! Seriously, I mean this place is rocking every ads in town. But I guarantee you, once you get there, you don't want to leave that place anymore.


Common name right? It is a common word that tourists talk about. It is too popular that you'll get tired of hearing about that place. That's what happened to me. haha!


There are a lot of ways to go there.

By Air

It usually takes 30-45 min. to get to the island of Caticlan via Cebu Pacific Airlines
You can also book flights from Manila-Kalibo although it takes more time because after arriving at Kalibo International Airport you will need to ride a bus or a van going to Caticlan.
You can also book flights at Philippine airline and Zest Airways (Manila-Kalibo)

By Sea

If you are more adventurous, on a budget and wants to kill time,you can ride Roll-on Roll-off (Roro) vessels from Batangas Port to Caticlan Jetty Port which usually takes 8-10 hours of travel.
There is also a Passenger vessel called 2GO. They offer 2 trips a day from Batangas to Caticlan.

By Land

Now, this is what I call "WALLET SAVER, SUPER TIME KILLER". It literally saves a lot of your money but definitely wastes a lot of your time. Although some friends of mine said that the trip was worth it as you can see a lot of different places and sceneries. If you are brave enough to try this trip, I SALUTE YOU! :)
I don't know much about the bus companies that offer trips to Caticlan but there's one company that I know and that is Dimple Star Bus company.


This is the back part of Boracay Island. Usually, when rainy season starts, this is where all water activites are held.  The other side is where the famous beach white sand beach is located. It is a long stretch that's divided into three. Stations 1, 2 and 3.

Where to stay?

There are a lot of hotels to choose from. Especially online. We stayed in this wonderful Resort Hotel named La Carmela de Boracay. It is located along station 2 of the island.

Where to eat?

Usually, almost all hotels have its own restaurant where you can eat. You can also try other restaurants located along the island. Some restaurants offer buffet meals but make sure you come early for dinner because i guarantee you, it won't last long!

What to do?

This is the best part for me. As a first timer in Boracay Island, all I was thinking is swimming, BUT there are many exciting activities to do. Our first activity, was helmet diving. Others call it sea/marine walk. It was real fun for me obviously because it was my first time.

Helmet diving/Sea Walking

The Night Life

This is also a MUST TRY if you want to relax and grab a beer before sleeping.
You will see a lot of Bars along the island and it is usually open til 3am. We tried this place called Summers Place. It was awesome,  the place was packed!

Next day we tried riding the "buggy car" as they say. All I thought was I will drive around the island for 1 hour and that's it. Then the guide told me that we will drop by to 2 places. A mini zoo and the highest peak of the Boracay island where you can see the whole island.

The Buggy Experience

These are some of the views from the top! awesome feeling.

 Reminder: You will have to walk through a stairway and i think it is more than 100 steps. But what I guarantee you that BIG SMILE when you reach the top!

To end this story, and our last day in Boracay we thought we should try snorkeling activities, Parasailing and Island hoping.

This is the most exciting and best activity I have done so far. I was too scared to try it but when I realized I'm already on top, I don't want it to end anymore.


Snorkeling and Island hoping and riding a "banca".

So this is the end of our trip. This is just a FEW of the MANY things you can do in Boracay. Hope you guys enjoy reading this. If you are interested and it is your first time to go to Boracay or Philippines, don't hesitate to ask me. I will share everything I know and I will try to help you to have the best trip in this beautiful country.
