our paradise

i always wonder why still very few people outside our country have heard of the island of Boracay. or at least compared to Bali, Phuket, or other neighboring beaches. 

the 50minute (propeller) plane ride to Caticlan island + 20minute boat ride is all worth it.

this is Shangrila Resort, very pricey but perfect for honeymooning foreigners, it is pure heaven. your feet won't get wet at all, thanks to their private lounge that takes you direct to the island via their own speed boat.

but if you're a serious beach bum, you're better off at the more affordable resorts that give you beachfront access. maybe i haven't been to the other great beaches of the world, but i can tell you Boracay's sand is nothing you will ever touch. it is powder milk-soft. no exaggeration there.

Shangrila infinity pool

there are 16 treehouse villas (yes you can take it literally) complete with kitchen, living area, private pool, and even an outdoor shower area (um, why would you?). there i am in yellow, welcoming you to my house (i wish!)
