Boracay in less than 24 hours
In less than 24 hours I will be on one of those benches sipping my mojito while listening to Hed Kandi on my iPod. Hehehe!
I’ve been wanting to go on a vacation to just relax and not think about work for a change. My boss from the US called me up last month and told me she’s flying over to work on some stuff here and wants to have a few days off just to chill. After choosing between Palawan, Bohol, Cebu, and even Hongkong we both settled for Boracay. So I booked our flight that same night and our hotel accomodation the night after. We got ourselves what we wanted at a price that’s a little way over my budget. I just told myself, this is Boracay after all and it’s summer so what do I expect? We’ll be staying at the Boracay Regency with 2 of her friends (first timers in the island which should be fun!) from California.
When I first went to Boracay with my friends way back 2003, the place was definitely paradise. Unfortunately when I got back 2007 Boracay was totally different… sad to say but Boracay lost its charm due to over-development. I’m not really sure what to expect this time around. Will Boracay be better or will it be worse?
I read an article recently about DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources) putting a stop on development of Boracay to help protect its natural environment. Further development would only continue once a sound environmental plan is idenfied. I really do hope this isn’t just “ningas kugon” (temporary) so we can bring Boracay back to its former beauty.
