    How’s the boat? Big, small? Choppy or relatively smooth? Food and drinks available? Alcohol? How long are you expected to be the boat?

    curious minds.

    ^looks like Mrs Topper was ready to dig in to her halo-halo.

    Halo halo is a snack made of crushed ice, evap milk, sweetened plantains & beans, etc - those are at the bottom of the container. The toppings may vary. In this case, I see mangoes, a cherry & a scoop of "ube" (purple yam) ice cream.

    Side note: I used to dislike "ube" (ooh'-beh) ice cream as a kid. We (kids) thought that it's a flavour for oldies. Now that I'm older, I've grown to like it. Quelle surprise!

    Glad you arrived safely, topper. Enjoy your vacay!

    Sounds similar to Indonesian es campur, translated to ice mixture.

    Can even add Durian!

    Great stuff looks lovely, of all the isles why this recommendation, friends or family.

    How would I get there from LOS, fly bkk to cebu then cab to a ferry, if it gets over 40 degrees or AQI might join you!

    Green tip you'll get more from this crowd for beach volley ball than burgers IMHO

    @willly - yes, I think I've seen something similar in Indonesia. You can keep the durian, though!

    @david44 - yes, BKK to Cebu (if there are direct flights, otherwise need layover in Clark or Manila). Then bus or taxi from Cebu city to the port near Bantayan. Then ferry to Bantayan island. I dunno why Topper chose it but it's a popular island/ beach destination in the Visayas (central islands). It also has white sand beaches. See the vid posted by Tizme on this thread - it's from his vacay some years ago.

    And much appreciated.

    Nice rocks, but who's the dog lover? I could have an opening for a clerk like that.

    Our water taxi...

    Topper on Bantayan Island-20240411_084954-jpg

    We passed the Bantayan to Capiz boat...

    Topper on Bantayan Island-20240411_114345-jpg

    The boat was very basic, no drinks or snacks, much less beer or GnTs..

    ^so there's no designated seating? Just sit where you want? Were there life jackets underneath the seats? (I always check for those, since I'm kinda paranoid abt that, lol)

    Eh topper, I didn't warn backspin abt the data privacy law & safe spaces law in PH (includes online privacy) , bcos he doesn't live here & has left already. But you do... so... it's up to you.

    I counted 7 lifejackets for a 5 person bench in front of us. We were also late leaving because someone showed up from the Coast Guard to get his picture taken while "inspecting" the boat/ship/ferry.

    ^you're welcome.

    Not to be a killjoy, but I don't know if those women (and men) would appreciate their faces shown in a site where smooci is a sponsor.

    There's also a case where a mom sued/ complained abt another mom/ lady bcos the 1st lady's child was included in a pic uploaded on FB. The 1st lady didn't want her & her child's location to be known bcos they were hiding from the kid's dad. Short story: you shouldn't upload other people's pics wherein they are identifiable, unless you have their consent. We (in my workplace) are given seminars abt them - data privacy law, gender issues, etc.

    Anyhoo, carry on with the vacay pics.
