22nd December: So after months of planning, talking, excitement and sitting in a **** stained seat in a taxi cab whilst getting currency exchanged in Suzhou the day had finally arrived. I woke up at 8:15 as I did every other day that week, the only difference today was that I knew that after a short stint in work I would be getting myself …
... Oh yeah, did I mention that they're probably all deaf too?? Seems to be a lot of shouting going on. The sand is white and the wAters are crystal clear. We are in the Sulu
We've got about another nine days here, and then it's back to Manila and then Alberta bound. Would it be too much to ask for winter to be over when we arrive home......I thought so.....
... We no longer stay there so we go up again, and decided to swim to the infinity pool. ALong the passage, you can found the mini zoo. They have different animals there, but not that wild. Some of them are, rabbits, crabitat, monkey, eagle, heron, turtle, guneia pigs and many more.
... 1.Jonahs Banana shakes. 2.Fried chicken 3.Boracay island 4. Filipino people 5. Miss Kovacs Not nesserarily in that order!!!! So pretty much failing to attempt to do anything all day except lie horizontally we decide no more drinking for a while now, starting tomorrow with a nice early morning jog on the beach. One more sunset down, shower (well i do anyway!!), try the little greek taverna again, full. So we decide on 'Aria' ...
... located. You won't have to worry about food (do you ever in the Philippines?, c'mon!) because there is an abundance of different types. Everything from pizza to Korean cuisine. Plenty of shops and all along the boardwalk you can opt to have super cheap one hour massages (see my review here), plan and purchase water sports/activities, get henna tattoos, or get your hair braided inexpensively. The feel of the island is very similar to the Caribbean. Locals ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFat Jimmy's Resort Boracay
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.
