Havaianas Beach Bar Party at Bourbon St. Smallville

Do you guys still remember the heat last summer? How unbearable it was and all you can think about was to go to the beach and just stay in the water for hours just so you could escape the unbelievable heat? I’m so thankful all that is over! But before it ended the Iloilo Bloggers were invited to attend a party on May 29th at Bourbon St. which is located at Smallville Complex here in Iloilo City. It was the Havaianas Beach Bar Party with house music mixes by DJ Pav Parrotte and party goers were entertained by Brazilian models (yes the authentic ones), fire dance exhibitions and were also given Havaianas freebies. Free mixed drinks were also given to everyone at the party. Havaianas and SPYCO Marketing Productions Manila organized the event.

Day Trip to Guimaras

We went on a day trip to Guimaras yesterday. I have been to Guimaras countless times but this was the first time that I was able to go island hopping, snorkeling and see/touch turtles in Lawi! We went to Ave Maria Island, it had a white sand beach though not as white as Boracay’s but much better because it was quieter and ideal for relaxation. After a couple of hours of lounging at the beach we went back to Raymen’s Beach Resort.

Pintados de Pasi 2010

Pintados de Pasi is a commemorative festival when the municipality of Passi became the first component city in the Province of Iloilo with the signing of R.A. 8469 by President Fidel V. Ramos. It has a touch of legend and history showing the way of life, work, rites and celebrations of the early Panayanon. Pintados because of the tattoos that covered their body.
