Beautiful Boracay

Photography by KJ
THE PERFECT BEACH Ahh how I wish I'm still in Boracay.. waking up to white beaches, coconut trees and the gorgeous sea in a dozen shades of azure blue and green. Boracay had been a very unexpected trip for me, because I have never expected it! So let me explain how this trip came all about.. Remember how I travelled to Bangkok in December for my shopping trip? When we returned to Singapore there had been some discussion among KJ's relatives about travelling to Boracay.. But both of us decided not to tag along since we've already spent so much shopping in Bangkok (hehe still not feeling guilty about it). So, I thought that's that! Who knows about a month ago, KJ suddenly sent me an email on titled "Happy 50th Monversary" on a random day. Now, if you're someone who knows KJ well enough, you would probably think that's his kind of a joke (because that's just the kind of guy he is...) But who knows, it turned out to be a plane confirmation slip!!

So after a plane flight, a 2 hours land transfer, a boat transfer and yet another land transfer.. we finally got to the beach front of beautiful Boracay. Honestly it was so much better than I expected! Boracay is just huge and what surprised me was that almost everyone there spoke fluent English - no language barrier, yay! The folks we met are all very nice.. the food was good and the water activities were even more exhilarating. The most memorable activity had to be parasailing.. AND the cheeky guide had to make me land in water right in the middle of the pacific ocean!!

We were there for about 6 days, which is perfect! Not too short and there was just ample time for everything. We had more time to slowly explore the beaches towards the last few days and one thing that I have to really say is - the sun rise and sunset time is super early in Boracay! (Not even at 5.30am when we tried to catch the sunrise..) Still, nothing beats having a good breakfast by the beach with the morning breeze. It was just pure bliss.

We also had these pictures taken that morning and we hope you like them! It's more editorial.. which I really, really love. What made it even more perfect was this little boat that's ashore that morning - a boat that represented the transport and heart of Boracay.

Fashion @ Singapore Yatch Show

Pictures by KJ
AN EYE-OPENER So last weekend KJ and I kinda spent our Saturday noon at the Singapore Yatch Show getting swooned over and over again at all the magnificent and beautiful yatches on show. If there's something like getting too much a day, this has to be it. We saw so many gorgeous speedboats.. and guess what? They're even cheaper than our COE. (Bet you can't make sense of it too) Now, can someone tell me how are we or how do we even compare a pristine white boat to a piece of paper that entitles us to own a car? That just leaves me feeling a little bit flabbergasted..

Still, we had a fun time walking about and hopping onto the pier to get a closer look at all the beautiful fleet of boats. (The only pity was that most of them were closed for private events.. what a bummer!) Our main highlight at the show was to attend White Moon's "Summer Pea" collection's fashion show and to take a closer look at their clutch bags and jewellery pieces - all beautifully exquisite in its way with a little touch of oriental flair. I think that it's truly inspiring how Eileen Moon, founder of White Moon, is already a owner of her own label. Many of us often dream of designing and creating our own fashion muses, but just exactly how many of us do we really go all out to achieve it? That's worth a penny for a thought..

Meanwhile, here's a quick update for the mid-week and I hope you guys enjoy these pictures that we took at the Singapore Yatch Show. I'm all prepped up to head for bed so wishing all of you a sweet goodnight.
