    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.

    ... to photo bomb or stand in front of as many as we could. Later on at the bar there was some really good live music and as we were in a great spot for people watching our first stop turned into our last stop. This was actually a pretty bad move as we forgot to get dinner and indulged in a few too many strong cocktails. When we got up to leave we knew we were in trouble! I had to eat! On our way home we passed a heaving ...

    ... and decide to splurge on a deluxe room in a nice hotel. Because it is low season we get upgraded for free and also given a free night stay so the offer is actually excellent. We are realising what a difference it makes to be in a nice room. Boracay has many beach activities. It is a little too busy for our liking to be honest (too many tricycles and motorbikes). The beach though, as you will see in the pictures, is hard to beat. An absolute dream of white sand and ...

    ... lol! Then they wanted to know more, so I started teaching about the gifts and why Holy Spirit gives them and prophesying over them. In half an hour I could physically see a change on those kids faces. One more story! Last night we held an open air meeting. 250-300 people were around. Many children! We played games, did dances, there were skits, a testimony and then the gospel message. 50-75 people came to know The Lord! At the beginning of the night there was ...

    ... out in the ocean drinking beers, making sand plugs (Jackie’s invention), exchanging ‘dry’ sand and pouring water on each others heads (Colette’s fav). Don’t ask. Best day.

    We signed up for a deep sea fishing, snorkeling, cliff jumping boat tour for today. It turned out to be a fun day, with a few twists. We bought a couple cases of beer for the boat and began our sea adventure. Our deep ...

    ... however, my night wasn’t over yet.

    On our way up to the main road to catch a ride back to our hotel (we were not staying on the main beach anymore) a Korean girl approached us. She was with two men who kept calling her away from us apologizing and telling us how drunk she was. They kept insisting that they come with her. However, on a woman to woman level (as silly as that sounds), I could tell something wasn’t right. The girl had pure terror ...
