Same Old, Same Old (Almost)

Last week's trip #1 took me back to the isla for Boracay Open 2011. Right after my fun run and all my interviews, I did a quick change and boarded a plane! I had no intention of going, since I was missing the Saturday games and Saturday night party (usually the most fun). But two words: Seat sale! So about a week before the trip, I booked me a flight.

It was a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am trip: I flew in Sunday around noon, and flew out first thing Tuesday morning. As in previous years, this trip featured a finals match which included the Boracay Dragons (nine-time champions, if I'm not mistaken)...

Superstar X left his precious jersey to dry near my team. Naturally, we had to take turns wearing it and taking pictures of ourselves in it while he remained completely oblivious. obligatory jumping pic...

This one inspired by Step Up 3

...Sunday-night partying (although, for the first time, I didn't stay out til sunrise!)...

...breakfast at one of my absolute favorite spots, Real Coffee...

Yummy three-egg Jack's Omelette

Yup, pretty much the same stuff as in previous years. The only difference? I didn't have to spend a couple of nights away from this guy...

For the first time, my husband came along! Yay! Thank you, seat sale!


  1. Wow Tisha, that was an awesome jump shot! Sooo galing! ^_^

  2. wow! you can really jump! :) looks like you had a wonderful time in bora.

    i wish i could get one of those seat sale promos too! =)

  3. Awww. First time your husband came along to Boracay? Hope you enjoyed the romantic sunset together. ;-) I love your jumpshot, you're so graceful!

  4. Thanks, Maudey! It's something I do every year at Boracay Open. I try to change my jump each time.:)

    Sugar, I was lucky to get cheap tickets the week before I intended to leave. But airlines always have sales now so go!

    Manila Girl, nope it wasn't our first time together in Boracay. It was just his first time to come with me to a provincial tournament.:)

  5. Looks like you had a fun trip. Cool jump shot :)

  6. Looks like a fun trip! I've never been to Boracay before and would LOVE to go! I'm actually going back to the Philippines for a visit this June but we're only there for 2 weeks, leaving us with not much time to go to Boracay :( You know how it is when visiting Philippines... you have to visit all your family from each side! How much are the seat sales anyway? .... just in case. haha!

  7. That could get tickets dirt cheap if you book at the right time. Mine was about 3K round trip, a great deal considering some people paid double that for a one-way ticket.


Oh, so sweet of you to drop a line!:)
