    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.

    ... that they shoved 2 sets of bunkbeds into, I thought in my head "I may be getting to old for this!". No joke, but I am pretty sure I could have fit 10-15 of these dorm rooms into my previous nights hotel room.

    In any case, I decided that I didn't come to Boracay to sit in this room so let's go check out this awesome beach. So I quickly changed into my bathing suit and off I went for an afternoon of beaching. As I arrived closer to the beach it became ...

    For those of you not paying attention, Jean is trying to bag herself a tourist.

    And who can blame her.

    Jean is twenty years old and single. She has a 7 month old baby who is looked after by her mother in Batangus. The father is Filipino, but she doesn't know where he is. That's ok she says, she doesn't want him anyway. There are no child support laws here (there's no ...

    The Place for Fruit Shakes

    ... went there, the place was jam-packed. We hardly got a seat right away.

    The fruit shakes were divine but their Meat Taco wasn't. Don't order their taco because it's expensive (P110), it's small, and it has a weird bitter after taste plus the taco shell was stale. If you want to eat, I believe there are better restaurants there to dine but if you want something refreshing like shakes, Jonah's is the place to be.

    ... a few hours in the pool and sun shine finished my book so thought I'd take lunch and exchange my book. Had veg soup well leaf soup as that was all that was in there but very nice, book exchange I'll wait until I move on, I don't need Jesus books I was born in his town (Doncaster for those that don't know where he came from) thought there was something odd about this place. I asked when and if it ever got busy she said, Christian week, I asked ...

    ... was at our fingertips from the world's best scuba diving, repelling down 30 metre waterfalls to random church services in the street and flat out party beaches! Needless to say once again I needed a holiday from my holiday and I guess this could be the very reason I have been procrastinating with the blog.

    We had three main destinations in the Philipines. First Manila and the Hobbit Bar, where midgets (small people if you want to ...
