Boracay - I'm Yours

I'm back on what promises to be a very long series about Boracay. I was supposed to have a four-day trip but the allure of the place albeit the incoming storm made me extend my stay for another couple of days.

So to start this series, let me share a couple of videos I made on probably the best island cum beach in the Philippines.


The first video mostly contains footage and shots of the Island's Sail Boats as it present itself to the music of Enya's Oronico Flow. Shots were taken in the 3 km White Beach and the adjacent Diniwid Beach at its rightmost end. Hope you enjoy this video:





The second video was taken on a somewhat gloomy afternoon weather so a bit darker skies can be seen. Playing on the background is one of my current favorite song - the tropical. laid-back beat of Jason Mraz' I'm Yours.


More of this tropical paradise on my next posts.

  34. I agree, napakaganda ng Boracay pero I'm disappointed lang sa nangyayari over the years kse masyado ng commercialize and the island cannot anymore sustain the environmental effects of the hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Super gandang ganda ako noong 1996 nung aking first visit to Bora pero this time parang nakakaawa na ang island. I just hope the government is not closing their eyes regarding the many environmental issues haunting the island.
