CS/IT Boracay Escapade

The Cast
Arriving at Iloilo airport
It was February of 2010 when had book the promo fare of Cebu Pacific Davao - Iloilo flight. Initially, it was me, Lee and Maricel will go on that trip, then we tapped Vice, Jason and Maricar. We also informed Jorge about the plan and joined with Jovy, Quennie and his son Arturo. Also joining with the trip were Meg, Perlie and Jazel together with Larry on a seperate flight. There's the feeling of excitement as the date came closer! Weeh. Here we came Boracay!

Panay Island
Finally I had stepped on Panay Island for the first time, we arrived at Iloilo domestic airport. Met with the driver of the van and then off ready for the road trip. It takes almost 4 hours to travel from Iloilo to Caticlan with a private van and surely takes time when you commute. Arriving at the Caticlan port, we then ride a ferry going to Boracay Island. Ride a tricycle to a budget hotel and enjoy the rest of the day touring the island, walking along the shoreline, buying souvenirs, inquire about activity package rates for the next day and above all picture taking. :D

Thrill-packed Whole Day Activities
Wake-up call for everybody and time to take our breakfast, then proceed to activities. And these are the island hopping, banana boating, fly fish, para sailing, helmet diving and ATV riding. And most of this activities are our first time. You can imagine the excitement we feels and the smile on our face watching other people do the activity, which we'll experience after that and you want to do it again and again but there is the budget constraint. :D Later that night we watched a fire dancing.

Here We Come, Aklan
We've done with our main trip in Boracay and all fun-filled memories are captured by Kodak. Lol. I'm glad we have enough photos and videos on this trip, but I wanna have a copy of those original photos and videos, all I have were the low quality photos. :D Time of our side trip in Aklan, the Sampaguita Gardens, this is a very nice place and some of us bought a souvenir here. I love group photos, presenting the all-star casts and thanks to tripod that Meg had brought. :D

Iloilo Quick Tour
Arrived at Iloilo we checked-in immediately and had the quick tour. We visited the Museo Iloilo, a haunted house, SM Iloilo and a night-life place in there that I forgot the name. We even met our fellow schoolmate Alleio in that place, what a small world! Hehe
