Hello Dblchinis!
As you all know I'm a blogger who spent most of my time talking about beauty, yes a beauty blogger basically.
However, during the past few years I was given the opportunity to explore other genre other than my area of interest, say for example: travelling. And having said that I totally fell in love with visiting different countries ever since.
I've blogged about my trips to Japan, Bintan/Batam resorts and the most recent Krabi Trip, this time round I was most honoured to be invited to experience the beautiful seas of Boracay together with Tigerair maiden flight to Kalibo.

The main organiser for this trip has made itself a household name for most of us, I've heard of so many different trips that they've organised for blogger participants like me, without them this "travel out to the seas" opportunity wouldn't happen just like that.
I'm thankful and grateful for all the great things that has brought on to me this 2013, 2nd half of 2012 is just crap (shall not elborate) even though my most glorious wedding took place that year. I'm looking forward to receive more great things and thank you to whoever is there to lend a hand!
Ok back on track, a little insight about Tigerair and yes, they have came up with a new branding named 'Tigerair', argh...I just couldn't get the 'ways' out of the whole lingo.
Tigerair SIN-KALIBO travelling schedule happens every  Mon, Thur and Sat (*subject to change in Sep). Flying 3 times a week is indeed a hugeload of conveniency for us!
* Flight Schedule Beginning September 1: Weds, Fri and Sun
Beginning October 7: Mons, Wed, Fri, Sun
Beginning September 1, will be Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Beginning October 7, we’ll add Mondays (Mons, Wed, Fri, Sun)

So proud to be representing Singapore, off to our resort Boracay Regency!
 photo DSC00114.jpg

We are 1/2 way there, another 1 hour 30 mins of coach riding and an additional 15 mins by boat.
On our way to catch the ferry, we were provided prepaid sim cards from Hazel, the representative of Singapore Philippines Tourism, this is to ensure our readers/followers get realtime updates from all of us so that it syncs perfectly when I instagram about how wonderful this place is.

After a long an bumpy ride, we have officially met the nightfalls of Boracay, well almost there I have to say.

Upon Reaching Boracay Regency, we were greeted by the halls that are decently decorated and not too elaborate looking.

Notice the sign t says 'Welcome Travel Related and Photography Bloggers from Singapore'
Hmmm... I got an urge reprimand the hotel staff for not utilising the extra space below to add on 'Beauty Blogger'
#$%$#$%  Divalicous or what?! Ok no profanities.

 photo DSC00133.jpgWhat an abounding number of passports.

While the staff is preparing our room check-in because we'd requested for Sea-View, we were ushered to dinner. Yes After 8 or more hours of travelling (I need to factor in the extra 2hours for ribbon cutting), I'm glad we are finally here. However, rest assure your travelling time won't take this long.
Ok as I was saying, we were all famished as h*ll, d*mn this is hard for me by restricting the use of explicitly.
To be honest, I'm like super hungry but I know I'm travelling with a handful of photography bloggers I know sure cannot lose out, so I took like 1001 pictures before settling down to eat.

And so, I had my fill.
Now let me give you a little room tour but before that , you can take a look at the various pricing of Boracay Resorts. Sorry if my price list is a little soggy looking, I've over-fliped it like 2 million times.
