Sunset at Boracay

6:01pm, sunset time at Boracay, on the last day of Feb… I just had inspiration for my blog (also thanks for the techno beat my hubby is playing in the background, which might trigger/stimulate some of the thoughts)

Having been busy for the entire Chinese New Year… even lost my voice; well, you can tell how many conversations I have been carrying on, comparing to a lifestyle in the most time

After resting for a total 10days… finally I got my voice back, while abandoning the white board communication way my husband and I have been talking in the house

It was different… interesting though; also seemed the best excuse for taking a break after the crazy hectic schedule, allowing leisure time bonding with friends, enjoying party night together with great live band music

Balanced with the always impressive stunning scenes on the white beach in the day time, Boracay remains as the Paradise under Sun, with more international crowds sun bathing and relaxing nowadays… we are so lucky to have found, staying, and continuously enjoying the island

All Together Now

Yep, weather turned out nice before last Christmas Eve, then did same to the New Year’s Eve… so we were all getting busy and schedules around then were full, continued non-stop since the beginning of 2019

And I missed updating my blog by the end of 2018 in accordance with and now is the Best time, to drop a line before the quick approaching of the Chinese New Year

Despite the coldness in Shanghai, I have spent entire a whole week accompanying parents there… happy family reunion earlier in a warm festival atmosphere, while helped them get all kinds of blessing signs for the upcoming Chinese New Year of the Pig, fulfilling little responsibility and duties as a daughter

Starting from Feb 5 (Tuesday), it is the year of Earth Pig and here I wish you all a Happy Chinese New Year of Health and Happiness, and a year of Love and Laughter ahead

P.S. Symbol of wealth, people with 12th Chinese zodiac Pig sign are gentle, considerate, and optimistic… 2019 could be a year full of ups and downs in all respects and at last, the fortune in wealth is fair

A White Christmas

It has been raining a lot this month… on off on off weather occupied the majority of days

So I relaxed well and enjoyed the holiday season… comparing to the crazy busy schedules in the previous years; furthermore, I witness a real white Christmas on the small tropical island of Boracay

No snow, for sure… but the sun behind clouds, before a bright day full of fairy-tale color starts, it is such peaceful white ocean connected with sky, appeared a tiny bit glittering silver if ever counted reflection of dim day lights

Then is the pouring heavy rain… the power of washing off everything and determination of cleaning up everything, nonstop forming a white curtain vertically; I was joking with my husband that I would certainly Not appreciate/admire that much, if I was sailing onboard of the moment

And white sand… always there, decorated with dancing white foams on top of ocean waves reaching to shore all the way; together with happy crowds playing water and sun bathing at the white beach, wow, what a Blessed white Christmas with Happy Holiday charm I am experiencing here in the Paradise under Sun

P.S. rain or shine, tourists to Boracay apparently do not mind that much… beach front, wearing bathing suits all the time while ready for a swimming/dive in the pool or ocean sooner or later; people from all over the world are indeed enjoying the amazingly beautiful surroundings – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance, Everyone

My Boracay

Yes, I still enjoy walking on my favorite White Beach… while feel the vibe of the island

Energy is always floating… yet it has shifted from Station 1 towards D’ Mall area somehow and even from the main road, Station 3 area is constructed much better with concrete roads from Cagban all the way

It is unbelievably peaceful… the government is certainly doing good; there are people swimming/dipping in the clear water, sun bathing on the beach or hiding under coconut trees, playing white sand in their imaginations; everyone, seems leisurely enjoy their own activity and find their own sanctuary with serenity

Boracay, is Better than ever… and yes, we are all so Proud of it

New Boracay

Oct 31, Wednesday… the last day of October; Happy Halloween my friend

Another year is almost passing by… glad the bonus of a half-year vacation happened earlier due to Boracay shutdown, allowing my husband and I both finally to take a deep breath, stop, and smell the roses again

After moving in a much more private place with gorgeous white beach view, we took our time settling in, then started travelling… both visited his families in USA and I have been back in Shanghai visiting my parents a couple times; we certainly appreciate each other more, while getting along well with each other – communications are picking up significantly and all those misunderstandings, and frustrations built up in the past are given enough time for detailed explanations while settled down

Also because of the unexpected pause in life, I finally figure out what I really want/desire… let go of MAHAL Sailing, for it is originally my husband’s dream, allowing him to take over while run his authentic American Style from the re-opening of Boracay; and I, focus on my favorite white beach, sharing real passion for a genuine Boracay Lifestyle with visitors from all over the world

Yes, it is the lifestyle, a true lifestyle… we chose Boracay, at the very beginning, from Shanghai all the way here; gave up promising careers, and hot money we are making, in exchange for fresh air, Caribbean like ocean, warm hospitality communities with friendship, and all-time simple happiness around the small tropical island

And thanks to a new era of Boracay, awaken and inspired me to launch Boracay Lifestyle Club for sincere congratulations on its Oct 26 re-opening… I can imagine myself greeting people on the soft gentle sand beach, entertaining them to personally customized venue from select wining and dining locations, sharing latest gourmet from my super picky yet honest foodie taste, while proudly presenting the Best of the Best from the Paradise under Sun, chit chatting and hopefully making friends in the background of unearthly beauty for their Dream Vacation in a Lifetime; how cool is that?

Home Sweet Home

Another day waking up with No power… but the buzzing of the generator running in the background

We are lucky… left Boracay early this month to USA for family visit, while leisurely stayed in Makati for couple days on both ways back and forth; heard there was scheduled power off almost daily in the past 2 weeks

Could not imagine life with humming noises all day long… I remember how Peaceful the moment we are back home, staring at the sapphire crystal-clear ocean, greeted by the soft sound of the water from white beach and gentle wind whispering through the trees, then birds chirping occasionally for welcoming

The whole journey is eventful with love, care, friendship and kindness… yet still, east or west, home is the Best

P.S. walking on the Station 3 main road from home… the road is nicely widened, while troops of construction workers are climbing high for the installation of brand-new telegraph poles along the roadside; I have been witnessing any tiny bit of the improvements happening on the island since the Apr shutdown, and hopefully, you all have the faith that Boracay is getting Better with time even it is going slow

Best of Boracay

Almost 4month shutdown… staffs at remaining restaurants appeared happier, grateful that constructions on the white beach path are quickly recovered after piles of pipes vanished beneath

Motorcycles showed up on the white beach path… thankfully they are temporary, as for the conveniences of locals back and forth doing daily chores due to ongoing widespread devastation on the main road

Every night I hear distant sound of heavy machines from the main street… knowing construction workers are still there hard working while most of us are resting – thumbs up for them, they are the ones in the progress of making Boracay a Better place each day

After all, locals are back in enjoying the simple and quiet island life belonged to them long before the booming tourist industry taking over… beach jogging, bicycling, dog walking, family playing, together with shoreline fishing, badminton, and chess etc, of those activities I barely saw here and there before

It is the Best moment to embrace Boracay now… all we have heard about the old charming Boracay back then, is unbelievably resurged here with great facility of a modern life needs

P.S. so used to the serenity on the island currently, we begin to wonder whether would easily adapt the crowded beach with tons of noises whenever Boracay re-opens… or we might worry too much, pros and cons as always, surely there would be more options for quality dining and wining, besides vibrant beach ambiance with lots of energy floating in the air for exchange by then; so, looking forward to it
