    Beaches, Banca Boats, beer and babes

    Ive just been in the philippines for near on 3 weeks with the family, Had a great time and stayed in some nice places, stuffed ourselves with great seafood and was just generally bumming around,

    IF the sight of beerguts offends you you should probably leave now

    We drove from vientiane to udon thani and jumped on thai smile to bangkok from there it was Seair to clark ( Angeles city ) the whore mongering capitol of the philippines, i had booked air phil express to fly from clark to Caticlan ( Boracay ) to meet up with some mates from oz who are married to philipino girls.
    Thats when it went pear shaped, turns out airphil express had decided to change the caticlan run to terminal 3 in Manila.and we had to get a van and head for manila or loose our flight, Bastards, we made it with about 20 minutes to spare




    Boarding the trusty dash 8 for the short flight to boracay, Boracay is a short take of and landing airstrip so they cant use bigger planes than this, the alternative is to fly into Kalibo and take a 2 hour bus ride to caticlan then pumpboat over to the island



    They take security pretty seriously in the philippines


    Flying over the mall of asia if shoppings your thing one could easily spend days in here they also have an iceskating rink inside and plenty of places to get a sneaky beer

    Mall of asia from the air


    Approaching boracay





    The sand on boracay beach is so white you need sunglasses all the time , Fantastic beach i reckon

    Parasailing is a popular activity amongst the tourists there are hundreds of them i never gave it a go mostly because i suspect it would scare me silly, They have jet skis to but in a rare act of common sense someone decided that sort of thing is best on the other side of the island, good move




    The pump boats that get you over to the island


    My young blokes were pretty excited by now and i was tonguing for a beer



    busy little port this








    This Boracay rum turned out to be a decent drop but couldnt compare with the Tanduay




    This is the main drag on white beach all the pubs and restaurants are along here





    The weather for the week we were on boracay was perfect didnt rain once and the sea was like glass ,


    i think i took about 800 photos all up but im having a mongrel job uploading them to photobucket , post a bit more later

    Filipino tucker can be pretty grim but there are a few dishes that hit the spot, mostly we just ate western style and seafood

    had a good feed of Salpicao which is a beef dish marinated in vinager, washed down with a freezing cold san mig , i was a happy camper





    spagheti for the missus








    Stayed in this place the first night but it was pretty ordinary and they had a lot of bullshit rules including not wearing board shorts in the pool. fokkers wanted me to buy a pair of budgie smugglers of them, bit gay that




    Armed guard on the beach





    Armed guard at the bank



    Punters cruising around the beach


    i got my beer and the missus found her seafood, reckon i,ll get a shag tonight

    Asians everywhere seem to have a freaky preoccupation with what you wear in the pool.
    My moobahn had a winge about me using the pool while wearing shorts.
    What do they think is going to happen?

    Top pics BLD wish I was there now.The dive shop in the last pic(Lapu Lapu),that is who I did my very first dive with.

    Nice to see that the water is clear as at some times of the year they have a real problem with green algae.

    Great thread so far BLD - however, the only tits we've seen so far have been your fine specimens.

    Where are the pictures of the tarts?

    i was last there about 4 years ago and first went there in the 80,s no power or trikes on the island at all, beer was invariably served hot , much prefer being a flashpacker these days, gotta have an aircon and access to cold beer methinks. Ther locals were telling me that they are seeing a big increase in korean and domestic tourists, they can fly from Korea direct to Kalibo now, i also noticed they are getting there act together as far as catering to what tourists want and need

    yes its a bit of a let down, but san mig light has its advantages if your tubby as its a low calorie beer but is still a 5% beer, so it has been known to sit BLD on his arse, not to bad really , the seafood seemed pretty cheap to me, but most of the time we had my mates wives who are flips doing the bartering, otherwise i suspect we would of been focked over regularly, good thing was it was all fresh and no one had to back out an urgent badboy, dont need that when your on holiday, some of them flip shitters can be damn scary to

    they have a seafood market runs 24/7 and you can just select what you want then have a restaurant cook it for you for a small charge




    i still reckon that nobody can cook seafood as well as the thais but the missus persuaded them to throw in some chillies


    barbies a bit rough but does the trick






    we ordered grilled oysters and they cooked them with a kind of plastic cheese that you see in sari sari stores in the philippines , the kind of cheese that doesnt need to go in the fridge, weird but strangely tasty


    post a bit more later. still struggling to download the bloody pics

    still got a shitload of boracay pics to post. After boracay we flew with cebu pathetic from caticlan to cebu city for a night then caught the ocean jet ferry over to Bohol island and parked up for a couple more nights of seafood gluttony and went for a small cruise down the Loboc river and also had a look at the Tarsier monkeys which arent actually a monkey at all but a Primate. ( smallest primate in the world, about as big as a smoke packet, interesting little things .
    then it was on to the big bad city of manila for a night and finally back to Angeles to fly back to bangkok, post some more later
