Wednesday, October 10

adjusting back to my reality.

So, i've been hanging out in Boracay for the last 2 weeks almost.
I really did miss this place. 
I am very glad am here but man, experiencing the bit ends of the Habagat or rainy season is
not fun at all. Well, it's just the heavy rains that scared me, plus all the drowning accidents, ruined properties in the beachfront and capsized boats are the ones that really got me thinking..
now i remember why i hated being here during the winter.. because of all the of the above. It's been a very sad week, a number of people died from drowning, and the beachfront looks like a dead city after a people thats why you should not build your properties toooo near the beach. there is a great reason for it.
I also noticed that a meter of sand has disappeared on the last 3 years alone.

Anyways, enough about that.

I've been repainting some stuff, trying to "upscale" my native new home. I haven't lived in a native house for a while and it is a big change from SF,North Carolina and especially the house we had in Greece. 
I do enjoy shopping for home stuff! always!
and am doing it with one of my great buddies anamie, who i used to work with in CWC/Republ1c

It was a choice between white beach (sunset beach) and Bulabog beach (sunrise beach) + 150Euros.
Am  happy to be in white beach, although i know i might go crazy when all the tourists invade the island again in a few months time. we'll see.
My days are filled with
Beach walk in the morning to Yoga class, 
hanging out with my Boracay friends,
daily swim from Kasbah beachfront to Willy's rock and back
Sunset and Hoop sessions at Kasbah 
working on airbnb photos
kiting (if there is wind)
and a lot more fun stuff.

Yes, it's a great life. <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">
ok am not complaining or anything 
Great and Healthy life <3 p="p">


I've also been sick, very sick actually. 
I always get sick on my first two weeks in Boracay. 
and i thought this year would be different but nahh. it's the same.
Vomiting is not fun.
 Monday 2am, i went to clinica de boracay and the doctors know what they we're doing.
It's a great change from the last time i was here. 
At almost the same time two years ago, i had to go to the hospital. 
I remember that there was no electricity in the center, no chairs in the ER 
and they had to put dextrose on me, putting the syringe while i was sitting on the guard's monobloc chair outside the hospital. due to the lack of lighting inside..
talk about nightmares!

So now am drinking antibiotics and writing this post. 8am in the morning ...
ive been in my bed for two days, crackbooking and watching happy endings and sorting out my unorganized iTunes library.

sniff. i wanna get better and get back to Yoga class and my daily swim :(

So how was your week guys?

Golden Tan and Sun Bleached Hair

So this is my first post back in Boracay.
and am doing this over my breakfast cereal.

The 10day manila trip has been cray cray which was not surprising since i am hanging with my original partner in crime Dane, who decided to form another band with me called #thefuckingawesomes, formerly known as #thekittygirls and #thewondertwins.

She's now busy earning some big dough on the big bad city of Manila which i cannot wait to get out of.
Truthfully, i really had a lot of fun but not my health. 
Champagne, enclosed smoking clubs and after-parties are not exactly a good recipe for a healthy me.
But hey i gotta hang out with my buddy Dane which we haven't really done in a while. 
Also, my SF partner in crime is in town, Angelo Mendez of #gelloshots 
and the Safehouse group - haven't seen them complete since we last did a project together, which was years ago.

So after much deliberation in my brain i decided to come back to Boracay
and be serious about "work" 
plus the people in Manila kept staring at my "Golden Tan and Sun Bleached hair" which for them is not a beach girl lost in the city but a a girl from the red light district who is pretending to be a beach girl. 


so thats...
Kasbah Boracay, which is the best restaurant in town (am not biased!)
Taking photos for Airbnb amongst other things.
Teaching Kiteboarding, Filming and still organizing events.
Hopefully the weather cooperates and sun comes out soon so we can get some good kiting footage.


Am quite happy with my set up this year. am in White beach, 
this is my front yard
i didn't live in white beach since Hey Jude closed and i did miss it a lot.
Yo Za come soon moro mou.

PS: forgive my poor iPhone photos.
cheers from Windy and Rainy Boracay.
