I just love going to my father’s hometown – San Jose de Buenavista, Antique so here are more photos that I took while I was there last week. Enjoy!
Paradiso Beach Resort is located at Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. This was the venue of the Singles for Christ Regional Conference – Western Visayas. Here are some photos I took of the resort – when it wasn’t raining. And this is also my first attempt at editing photos so please bear with the ‘greenness.’
This post is once again long overdue. Last weekend September 5th-7th, Tim, my brother Rino John and I once again went to Kabankalan and Bacolod. We attended Alex’s birthday. Alex is Tim’s nephew. We had so much fun! Alex now likes me. The first time that I went there he kinda didn’t. Lol. I got to meet Tim’s brother and brother in law for the first time too and they were really nice.
Last Saturday, 23rd of May, I finally got the chance to go to Kabankalan. Tim’s hometown. I went there along with my little brother Rino John and Tim of course. I got to meet Tim’s parents for the 3rd time and his sisters the first time (except for Dainah because we met a couple of times in the past when she went here in Iloilo). We stayed there until the 26th so that’s about 4 days and 3 nights. I loved Kabankalan! Not only did Tim’s family and relatives welcome us at their homes but they also gave us a tour of the city. I didn’t know that they have a palace-like city hall. But you have to see it to believe it. It looks more expensive than our Capitol actually. Honest. And Kabankalan is a very clean city. They have clean streets. Yes I now Iloilo is also clean but Kabankalan’s cleaner. Maybe its because Kabankalan is still more rural than urban. Their cathedral is also a lovely structure. It won’t rival Jaro Cathedral but still it’s a beautiful place to worship the Lord. We heard Mass there last Sunday.
So today I’m going to write about our first day in Boracay. This post has been long overdue but I had a ton of tasks to do and I also did some studying (for what, you don’t have to know right now..haha). Boracay is the most popular summer getaway here in the Philippines and it’s also popular with tourists from other countries because of its unique white sand beach. Boracay is actually known as the ” Paradise Island of the Philippines.” And if you’ve ever been there you already know why. To those who haven’t yet well you have to go there to know why. LOL. For now feel free to read my Boracay experience.
I just got home from the city after a day at the malls with Tim (who else?!) and I realized that I just had the best five days of my life so far. Let me tell you why. This blog post is just a summary of those 5 days because I will blog about them one by one in the next five days (get it?). That way I’ll have more topics to write about. LOL.
I’m writing this post just for the key word and see if how many people will stumble upon my blog if I rant about Boracay! Anyway,we’re going to the beach! And not just the beach but the best beach in the Philippines! It’s the place to really hang out and chill, have fun with friends because it’s bursting with life! Just what I need!
I was with Rino John(my little brother), Monica, Amy, Irene and Tim. Tawtaw and Kix met us up at the Buenavista wharf. Then we went to Kix’s awesome house. The ambience there is like a rest house or a cottage at the beach. How I wish I could go back there. I might ask Kix if I could.
