Boracay's Simple Pleasures

I really enjoyed my stay in Boracay..too bad it had to end. :P But I guess it's good too, well good for all of you, because you'll get to read new posts (at last!) aside from my Boracay adventures hahahaha!

I had a very fun-filled vacation! It was also very memorable because first, I got to spend it with Mark and my friends--whom I haven't seen for quite some time, second, I got carry out my surprise for Mark's birthday which he loved so much (thanks to all my friends for helping me out! my love goes out to all of you!), and the most important one, it was all of us' first time in Boracay (except for Chrissi and Emman)! Hahaha!

Ride the Zorb!

Even if we stayed up late the night before and didn't have much rest, we were up early the next day and all ready for another adventure! We tried the Zorb on our 4th day in Boracay.

After breakfast, we were off to ride the Zorb! Just like when we rode the flying fish, Cathlyne chose to just stay at the hotel and have some sleep.

We were enjoying the place and the view while the staff were preparing the zorb.

There are different ways to enjoy the ride. You may either ride it with or without water inside and be tossed into a track of grass, or you may opt to be harnessed inside the ball and be tossed into a rough track. The zorb can also accommodate a maximum weight of 300lbs (3 persons max). If you're not riding the zorb, you may also lay down the track and have the zorb roll over you.

Since there were just 6 of us, we chose to ride in pairs and opted for the ride with water inside the ball. We also did the 'maiba una' hand game to know who will ride the zorb first. :P

And well I guess I wasn't lucky enough haha! Here's a picture of Mark and I before the ride.

A pail of water was poured inside the zorb, Mark and I then got in, the locks were secured, and then we're off!

Here are Chrissi and Emman, down the track, waiting for us to stumble over them!

Mark and I were screaming non-stop as we rolled down.

I was nervous at first thinking that Mark and I might bump against each other.

Good thing we chose the zorb with water. We were just sliding inside as we rolled down to the end of the track.

It was a very exciting ride! Kinda bitin but so much fun!

Chrissi and Emman rode next, and then last were Jonathan and Arriane.

We all had a great time riding the zorb! We'll definitely do this again when we get back to Boracay! :D

Fly Fish Ride

We went back to the station 1 after our helmet dive. We had a short rest and then went on with another adventure, the fly fish ride!

We were all excited to fly woohooo!

Chrissi even made a bet on who will be the first one to fall. She firmly said that it would be me haha! But oh well, look who fell off first! :P

Emman also followed after Chrissi fell. The boatman must have been provoked, because we kept on teasing him that he can't make us fall, so he maneuvered the boat extra fast that we were literally flying! 

Chrissi, Emman, I and Mark were the only ones whom the boatman was able to pitch into the waters. Here's a photo of us, still teasing the boatman, for not being able to get all of us tossed into the sea. :P

We all enjoyed the ride. Thanks to Kuya Rod, who arranged all our water and land adventures. :)

Boracay Helmet Dive

After our island hopping adventure, while the others went back to the hotel, Mark and I decided to try out the helmet dive.
We got into the helmet dive site and took some photos. :P
We had a few minutes of briefing about the basics of helmet diving and then we're off! I was feeling nervous as we were descending to the sea floor.
All my fear suddenly disappeared when we reached the sea floor and saw a lot of fish.
We were accompanied by a professional diver who also took photos of us as we went on fish feeding.
More photos HERE :)

Here's a video of us while fish feeding under the sea.

Island Hopping, Snorkeling, and Lunch at Panoly Island

We started our third day in Boracay with breakfast at the hotel.
After breakfast, we were all set for island hopping.
First destination is the Crystal Cove.  We took photos while we were heading to the island.
We saw a lot of beautiful views on our way.
We even saw Manny Pacquiao's resort.
We then stopped over at Crystal Cove. It was supposed to be a tour in a cave but we just settled for some photo shoot. ^_^
After the photo shoot, we then went snorkeling..
We headed to Panoly Island for lunch. We wandered around and took some more photos while waiting for our orders.
For lunch, Mark and I had a separate order (as usual)..we had Vegetable Rice, Stir-fried veggies, Grille Stuffed Squid, and Grilled Liempo.
Mark and I finished lunch ahead of the others so we waded in the waters first, and Mark was able to find me a new pet!

Meet my pet, Jellie! ^_^
Here's a video of her..sorry for my shaky hand :P

We were supposed to head next to Puca Beach but the waves were rough and the boatman said that it would be dangerous. And so we just had another shot before going back to Station 1.
