    Always heard it pronounced 'Boy'.

    Presumably it comes from the words buoyancy or buoyant.


    Which I'm sure even Americans can't massively mispronounce.

    @d48 - I upload pics directly from my phone. I've noticed that sometimes, my net prolly goes very slow and the upload doesn't go well and others don't see it. It appears on my phone screen as "attachment12345" versus P_2018xxxx (file name from my phone). I'll try to fix the links later as net is %&$ again. I can only upload pics until ~6:30 am. The rest of the time, my net is so &%$!

    @chitty - yes, those hammocks were very comfy. Had a short nap there.

    If anyone will go to Coron, I would recommend Tour A or B for 1 day (5-6 destinations), then Tour C (3 destinations only) if you want to relax. Tour C1 also has the nicest beaches. However, if you have only 1 day, then you can do the Ultimate Island tour, which has 7 destinations - but you be a bit hurried from 1 stop to another.

    If ever anyone needs a driver & vehicle and you intend to do a day trip in Manila or surrounds (lots of waterfalls in surrounding provinces), send me a PM. I can refer you to some trustworthy drivers - they're husbands of friends. One drives for Grab (SUV type) and another drives a taxi (sedan), but also has access to a van (for large groups). I've ridden in their vehicles and can vouch for them.

    This was lunch - we had metal untensils that day, what a luxury! The past 2 days, we used plastic utensils. The boat crew also cleaned up after the meal. We tried to help them in cleaning up during the first day, but they told us to leave it to them because they might get castigated by their boss.

    This was the group of bungalows that were supposedly Chinese owned. Turns out that I took pics of them - I thought I didn't. The boat crew didn't know the rental rates.
