the bora, it is over.
This time, I really got to appreciate the serenity of Bora. The last time we went, it was literally in the heat of summer - parties everywhere, the beach was crowded, so many people up and about until the wee hours of the morning. We were lucky that time that our hotel wasn't anywhere beside the "night life".

Chips and I were never really the party-going types. We both don't like cigarette smoke, I get drunk really easily, and he doesn't sleep well when he drinks too much. So it was great that Bora was, at its peak season tail end, quiet and plain peaceful. A great paraw ride, a massage on the beach, an afternoon nap on the sand, a good book, and being with someone you can't get sick of talking to (naks). Sigh. I could have well done without my "monthly friend" (basahin ang isang blog for details). But anyway, it was just grand. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

    oh yes. quiet. i loved this trip, really. Chips was saying nga that maybe we're just getting old - coz we had more fun lounging and sleeping early vs. drinking and dancing the night away. haha.

    oh well. to each his own :)

    bora really is more splendid when the crowds of party-goers have gone away. paraw rides are pretty awesome. we went on one (sacha) that had a speaker that played bossa for the whole 2.5 hour ride around the island. too bad, it was too early to open a bottle of moet et chandon. i kinda freak out (inside only) when i see lots of people on the beach. cuz it makes me think of the amount of pee in the water. eww~ less people, the better for me!

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
