Here's a recent guest post submitted by Scott H. regarding his adventures in Boracay. Hope you enjoy reading the first part of this installment, I sure did. A huge "Thank You" to Scott. More adventures to follow from the big guy.
Boracay Philippines. Puerto Galera. Guimaras. Just some of the better known Philippines resorts. Visited Cabaling Beach this past Sunday to celebrate the birthdays of my asawa, now 47, her sister Alida, 33, and Joery, her husband, 39. The sky was overcast most of the day, but our nieces and nephews were enjoying swimming and playing on the beach as I waited for the rest of the party to return from visiting my wife's traveling manicurist who lived nearby. Had eaten a breakfast of spaghetti and fried chicken at our rented nipa hut on the edge of a jungle, but was getting hungry for some of those butterfly pork chops I had purchased at SM City Supermarket in Iloilo. Plus, Cousin Emma and her crew were bringing the San Miguel beverages, but they hadn't arrived yet.
Left Villa Igang, a Philippines resort located in Guimaras in the Western Visayas region. Had spent the afternoon with my new mate from New Zealand, Murray, and his crew. The beach resort has some tremendous scenic views and could provide some picture perfect postcards for those doing some Philippines travel tour. Our rural province is packed with a plethora of Philippines tourism hotspots, and is fast becoming known as an alternative location aside from such popular destinations as Palawan and Boracay.
I've got a great "job." Well, if you want to call sitting at my computer all day with no phones ringing, no boss hovering over me (The Sainted Patient Wife leaves me alone for the most part) and no daily commute on Interstate 55, a "job".
Julian is 42. He's from Romania. He's been in the Philippines since last November and is currently visiting the white sandy beaches in Guimaras after spending a month in Iloilo with a previous visit to the resort island of Boracay. The Romanian doesn't have a job, doesn't have a pension or fixed monthly income and is living on some small savings he has. The man is a certified risk taker in my books.
