January-February 2014, Boracay: Gone Beachin’

OH MY GOODNESS. Here I was since last month, complaining about having nothing to blog about. Then, our Mindoro trip happened, and I had all the time in the world to put up the pictures and blog about it. While checking my blog, however, I discovered that I DID NOT FINISH MY SERIES ON BORACAY. 😦 I just started with an “arrival” post, but never got around to finishing the other pictures. Dayum.

If there’s one thing I want to convey through these photos, it’s this – the Philippines is insanely beautiful. Sure, we have a lot of stuff to complain about, a lot of stuff that need to be fixed, but once you get transfixed on the acres of natural beauty that it still has, you get to see the brighter side of the Philippines – and how much God has blessed this country!
