It was my first time to be at Boracay during Labor Day weekend. It was insane. People literally arrived in droves with one objective in mind: to party! Now, I’ve been to Boracay quite a number of times but somehow, this trip cannot be compared to any other time I’ve been there. For one, there were so many young people. Not that I’m old haha, but Boracay was teeming with 20-somethings it was fun and crazy and exciting. There were also countless events and parties happening all at the same time, which meant you can party from early afternoon to early morning the next day if you wanted.
Of course, I was there to cover NESTEA’s events and parties, which were enough to keep me busy. Nestea held a volleyball tournament, featuring the best colleges in the country. It was so exciting to watch! Nestea also had stations all over the island which served free iced tea, and even offered free massages and palaw rides. They also organized a super fun yacht party, with The Zombettes and DJ Callum David on board, who played awesome music the entire day. And at night, they threw the best parties: they brought in DJs Cedric Gervais and Steve Aoki, who each played amazing sets on two consecutive nights. It really was an unforgettable trip! Until next year!
This was one of the many Nestea booths in the island that gave away free iced tea.
Nestea’s headquarters: Crystal Sand. They had a registration booth right beside the hotel–you can get free massages and paraw rides, all you had to do is register.
Of course, I had to try out the paraw ride.
This was so fun, I haven’t ridden one in years!

After a shower, we grabbed some dinner.

The next day we all got together for this fun yacht party! Im with fashion bloggers Robbie Becroft, David Guison, Lissa Kahayon and Vern Enciso.
Bloggers all around haha.
Another one with the group.
We went island hopping as part of our itinerary. This was at Crystal Cove (haha the name is on the signage).
The next day we visited my favorite restaurant in Boracay, Steakhouse Boracay.
This isn’t steak haha, its pork chops! And this is only one order, so Carlos and I shared. Yum!
I could look at this all day.
Watching the sunset with Carlos.
