      Christmas at Jimmys

      Great family orientated place, myself and 2 friends stayed at fat Jimmys over Christmas 2011/2012 and had a great stay...

      Ivone was great, got us breakfast every morning and it was included in the price all for like £4 a night....couldnt ask for better. Plus it was great being able to watch a nice happy filipino family celebrate their Christmas eve.. Was quite heart warming considering my friends and I were spending Christmas away from our own families.

      Location is just slightly behind all the main stuff on station too, so if any other person complains about it, well my advice, get off your arse and walk less than 5 mins and you'l be rewarded with that white sandy beach.

      Granted tis probably is not the best location for the slightly older or those with walking disabilities as the path to the beach is quite narrow and often crowded with passing bikes.

      Only negative was the inital greeting as we got off the pedicab thing as there was loads of begging children near the entrance which can be very off putting.

      ... a connecting flight. Panicky poo mode set in. It turned out that the flight was not delayed as long as we first thought. The plane took off an hour after it was supposed to. The flight was to Manilla, the capital of the Philippines. However, this was not our destination, we had a connecting flight to Kalibo. From Kalibo we needed to head to an island called Boracay. We arrived an hour late to Manilla and we had another hour to wait till our next flight. It all seemed a bit ...

      I'm thinking sex traffickers, I'm thinking drowned or murdered or lost. I ask if he has notified the police. No, he hasn't. We talk some more and the full story comes out. Andy is a local and has been living on Boracay for 42 years. His son is with his Filipina ex wife. She has taken the boy away, probably left the island.

      Still not a good situation, but at least I can shove my heart back down my throat. It really doesn't belong in my ...

      ... talking and laughing as they walk and I wish that religious festivals brought the same wealth of community spirit and shared celebration for us in the UK. I doubt the Filipinos focus on watching children stuff themselves silly with chocolate on Easter Sunday.

      According to the guide books, Boracay isn't really a diver's haven, catering more for the Chinese and Koreans to try scuba in the shallows. This played hugely to our advantage in ...

      The hotel staff are amazingly friendly, with the women all hugging and playing with Naomi. Naomi becomes an attraction for the staff and local holidaymakers. They all want to be photographed with the cute blonde girl, until eventually Naomi gets fed up of ...

      Good evening , well today has been another great day kicking back. So here's what we've been up to......

      So first off we decide to take a walk up the beach past all the fancy wancy hotels, and see how far round we can get. Not very far really, we got to a resort called 'Spiders Cove' (yes, full of spiders) , and it was either swim, or turn back.

      Back on the beach we grabbed some breakfast, and as we didn't know how far Bulabog beach was, and it was starting to ...
