I was going to get back to Panglao after that semi-spontaneous trip early February but most friends had no clear mind whether to go or not. Stressful updating couples on their yeses or nays - much more excruciating there's NO EFFIN COMMUNICATION!
WTH, shoving off the bad vibes the SINGLE me wanted to pare down on parties and crowds and hotties and just spend time on the beach with wonderful people. And on the last minute last Thursday, I just surprised Aoi with our rendezvous LOL!
I wanted to check back on Bantayan Island after 2 years partying and getting wild in Boracay. And there we were, 3 of us - Aoi and Armand "Arlene" Alforque (one of my OFP lensmen) also snapping up on a Bantayan decision hours before the last bus trip.
I found myself reunited with "Queen Bee" Armand and the whole amazingly fun and no-dull-moment BLANC online magazine team - esp. on the Bantayan beaches! Circa 2010 we were young souls hungry for some of these sand revelries.
*BLANC's Art Director Nicky Roa and Yuno Bastareche took these amazing photos of us in the island,
except for my selfies and other non-DSLR quality photos :)
