Make a date to Boracay

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

When shall I make my way to Boracay?

So I’ve heard so much about Boracay which has one of the best beaches in the world!!!! Did you know that it is voted as one of the world’s best beach by the Sun Herald, Australia? It’s a good getaway island located in Aklan provence, 345km south of Manila. It is accessible by air from Manila through two principal gateways: Caticlan Airport or Kalibo Airport.

Reading from the articles, there are tons of things you can do at Boracay Island. Of course, some of the things you can do are diving, snorkeling and windsurfing. You can also sail around the island or kayaking, paddle boat, speed boating and many more.

It’s a norm that most travelers love to lie under the sun or under the shade of coconut trees. The sunset is something to be amazed of from the view of the beach. And when the night hits, there will be more exciting activities in store for tourists.

Now doesn’t the beach look awesome??

You can get massages on the beach too

There’s also under water activity

Another great view of the beach… Don’t you just want to relax here?

Lots of tourists on the beach

Wanna do parasailing?

Boracay Beach also known for its seafood

There’s a huge chance that I will be flying over there to feel the “Boracay Experience” so that would be an excellent coverage for my readers. I’m pretty sure a few Bruneians have ventured here after hearing rave reviews of the island.. Forget Bali, Kosamoi, Pulau Redang for the moment.. Boracay is the in-thing in terms of beach experience.

So the question is how do you get there? Easy peasy… Now Anthony Tours have launched a special package where you can go to Boracay for a 4 days 3 nights holiday package (31st May to 3rd June) and this is considered a long weekend because of the Army Day in Brunei.

The package is as low as BND 999 and you will be catching two flights (RBA and Cebu Pacific) and it includes Hotel Twin Share room only, return transfer Airport-Hotel. You can book online or call Anthony Tours 222 2666, 222 8668 or 222 7965.

Break-ins getting very common

This was taken last April and both incidents happened on the same day but different locations.

This happened outside the parking area of Batu Bersurat Basketball area and this happened to one of my friends last night. Sad to hear..

Now it’s time for us be alert whenever we leave our car at public places even at car park areas. I became aware of the current trend where windows are smashed in as robbers are getting more courageous in their evil deeds. I remember a car being broken into and it was only two cars away from me. So that made me become more mindful of what I put in my car since everything space in my car is visible due to the structure of the SUV car.

This is a tricky situation for the relevant authorities to come up with suggestions on how reduce such break-ins. Even the basement car park of The Empire Hotel ain’t as safe as before. I’ve read tweets where cars have been broken into and even one of the drivers told me about it when I was parking my car at the open space area next to the Indera Samudra Grand Hall at The Empire Hotel.

So just a tip to share with you is not to leave your bag inside the car. Handbag or camera bag or any bag at all. Unless it’s a luggage or trunk, they might think twice about breaking in. I wonder if there’s such insurance for this type of cases… hmmm…

This happened during SCB’s charity run last year outside the indoor stadium. This car was just two cars away from mine. The authorities came for investigation but the damage has been done.

The trial run for #WalkRunCycle2012

What a great jogging session we had last Saturday as a group of us jogged the actual 11.5k run for #walkruncycle2012 starting from Radisson Hotel though. I managed to finish the route without walking but my feet are slightly aching *lol* Thanks to Rizan and Hj Adi for ushering us from the beginning till the end and it was great jog too among friends. Are you ready this weekend?

What a cracking finale!!!

What an amazing finish to the season!!

Everyone thought it will be smooth sailing for Manchester City as they take on relegation battler QPR. There was so much stake on hand. Why? QPR must win to ensure safety or rely on other results to favour their way. Manchestery City must win at least to lift the title from defending champions United.

The unexpected happened when QPR took the lead in the 2nd half 2-1 even with a numerical disadvantage after Barton was dismissed for misconduct (This player must be sold off at any cost). In come Dzeko late in the game and he had a poor 2nd half season as his goals dried up. His contribution paid off after he equalised two minutes into injury time. But it was Aguero who stole the show with his injury time winner with a composed finisher and brought the fans to delight, roar and tears of joy.

Sunderland were already losing by a solitary goal to Manchester United after Rooney put them ahead. However, QPR didn’t return the favour as a draw from MC-QPR match would have gifted United the title. What a climax to the season and me as a Liverpool fan was enjoying the battle of the Manchesters and I’ve never witnessed such a finish to the season. This is what I call football and everything can happen within seconds or minutes.

The wait is over. The 44 year wait is over.. Well done, City and well deserved. It’s surely “noisy” in Manchester but the colour in blue. Now bring on Euro 2012..
