The island of Boracay

It's one of the places I frequented during my college years when funds were tight[er] and I had to do a series of garage sales so I can raise funds for my pocket money.

Boracay has long become a home away from home for me that I never really made a post about it since I usually blog about new places I've explored.

But my recent trip to this island 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines made me realize that its glorious white sand and amazingly clear waters deserve a spot on my side of cyberspace.

Yes, it can get disgustingly crowded during Holy Week and Labor Day.
Yes, the commercial franchises popping up in every corner are eyesores.

But you can't deny, it still has one of the best beaches in the world. 

And come golden hour, the island will treat your eyes to various hues of magical orange every minute until the sun finally sets.

Now tell me you disagree ;)
