HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE! Well, I purposely didn’t book for a trip/staycation this Holy Week as I would like to spend it at home with my family. Yes, I just stayed at home and finished some paperworks (Unfortunately, I can’t rejoice yet and as much as I would like to motivate myself, I am still CLUELESS on what’s going to happen next.
I know that you’ve heard about the Boracay closure issue and our trip is scheduled on April 29 to May 4, 2018. If President Rodrigo Duterte would announce his approval of the Boracay closure by the first week of April, there is a possibility for us to enjoy Boracay in the peak season because it will take 30 days after the announcement will be effective. So, I am praying for a miracle– to think of it, it will be too much of a hassle. Why? I have to deal with airline rebook/refund. If I will rebook, there is no guarantee though that I will get a hotel on those dates because it’s PEAK Season. I just hope that they would do the closure on the lean season because a lot of tourists have already made their plans and it’s pretty frustrating if that would be cancelled.
I actually have included LABoracay in my itinerary since I haven’t celebrated it before and it will be my first time if ever. Boracay is such a paradise and my sympathy goes with the locals, business owners and the tourists. I support the government agencies in their plans of saving the island and I will do my part in preserving its beauty. If our planned Boracay 2018 trip won’t be cancelled, I will show everyone how beautiful Boracay is and why it is considered as a paradise and one of the world’s most beautiful beach. So, I’m just keeping my fingers crossed and will leave it up to HIM up there.
I hate to entertain negative thoughts, but just in case our Boracay trip won’t push through this summer, I’m thinking of going to nearer destinations like Subic, Pangasinan, Tagaytay or Batangas but again my fear would be most of the hotels are fully booked already 🙁
Since this is the first day of April, I started it with good vibes. Yesterday I went to the salon and treated myself with foot spa with pedicure and gel manicure. The only disaster that I have so far is my hair and I’m actually having second thoughts if I would have it rebonded or not.
I am also thinking of having a productive summer vacation so I might as well feature home improvement segment in my blog as well including an upgrade of the home furnishings, accessories and appliances. By next week, I will be posting the parts of our humble home and hopefully before the start of classes, it will have its new look.
I will also feature beauty rituals you can do at home for spa/salon alternative since I know going to spa is kinda expensive.
Before our Boracay trip, I will show you my very own PINK luggage and its contents (My BORACAY 2018 Packing List).
After April 20 to 28 and on May 2018, my schedule is still open for hotel/restaurant features/reviews. Feel free to shoot me a message in my email if you have suggestions, ideas or you wanted to collaborate with me.
