Boracay Escapade

♪ ♫ Piliin mo ang Pilipinas ♩ ♬ ❤
I remember one of the happiest birthday I had was in 2011, when I celebrated my 23rd birthday in Boracay and treated my loved ones a 1-week birthday escapade. 🙂 At the present moment, talking about preparations for honeymoon, fiance and I originally planned to spend it in: Singapore, Surabaya and Bali, Indonesia and we have our tour guide, my Indonesian best friend and graduate school classmate, Cella. Cella and I already laid out budget plans and our 1-week itinerary. And I had second thought, I asked fiance if we could explore the different vacay spots and historical places in our beautiful country first, then eventually, out of the country for the second honeymoon. Since our honeymoon will be the first time we will have our solo escapade, why not make it momentous by highlighting and appreciating the beauty of our country? 🙂
