Travel: El Nido, Palawan Island Hopping

El Nido is a 6 hours drive from Puerto Princesa. It's like Manila to Baguio :). The long drive is definitely worth it when you arrived. Let me tell you, El Nido isn't like Boracay. It's a place where you can relax, enjoy and be one with nature while in Boracay it's more like parties and events. The main beach in El Nido is so-so. What you want to do when you go there is Island Hopping. There are 4 island packages there but the most popular one is tour A so that's what me and my family opted for.

We arrived at El Nido around 6:00pm, too late for island hopping so we decide that we'll just have it the next day. The tour started at 9:00am, it's a whole day trip because you'll be visiting 5 attractions. The first one in Package A is the Small Lagoon.

Travel: Puerto Princesa, Palawan Underground River

We started the day early since our tour van fetch us at around 7:00 am. One thing that you should know about me is that I'm not a morning person, seriously I start my day at around 12:00 in the afternoon already so I don't like waking up early so I'm a little bit grumpy.LOL. Anyway It's a 2 hours drive from Puerto Princesa City proper to Sabang, where the underground river is located. We arrived at Sabang at 10:00 am, our tour isn't until 2:00pm so we have a lot of time to spare. The tour guide brought us to a nearby beach resort, Parao Beach, where we can swim and eat until our Underground tour and boy, the place is gorgeous! Look!

Travel: Arrival in Palawan, Philippines

My first post for my Palawan summer vacation!

We left for the airport at around 1:00pm our flight isn't until 4:00pm but my mom, always the early bird, wanted us to be at the airport two hours before our flight and since our house is like 15-30 minutes away from the airport, we were there around 1:25pm but luckily they were already checking in our flight so we checked in and bought some snacks. Me and my little brother were both bored out of our wits so I opened my laptop and we watched Harry Potter but then he got bored so we switch to Wanted. Before we knew it, it's already time to board our plane. As always my little brother got the window seat but it's okay since I'm a really really a nice older sister :).

Life: Day out ^^

Me and one of my best buddies decided that we'll go out before both of us went off to our own vacation. She'll be going to Vietnam on the 16th and I will be off to Palawan on the 14th. One thing that you should know about this friend of mine is that , she's CRAZY:) in a good way though. I always have fun when I go out with her. So we had our nails done, and the crazy person that she is, she suggested the color of our nails and guess what color it is?

It's technicolor:) Mine on the left and hers on the right.

Life: Summer:)

It's that time of the year again, and the moment I got my grades is the official start of my summer vacay ^^. Ofcourse, summer means that I'm a year older again. I spent my birthday with some of my great friends, such a shame that we weren't complete but oh well we take what we can get:) It's just a simple bonding time and dinner is my treat^^.

                                  My Starbucks Venti Birthday cup:) It's Java Chip!

Hi, I'm Mimi and this is my life :) My picture? Look at the side, yes that's me!

I'm about to turn off the wi-fi but since my brother said that he needs it, I'm just gonna leave it on and edit this intro post. I'll just post pictures about me instead so it won't be boring ^^.
