We had a one-day stop in Cebu after the Coron trip, and then we were off to Boracay for JP’s cousin’s wedding. Although I’ve been here a couple of times, and I’m concerned about the commercialization, Boracay is still a nice place to go to. The sand! That’s what I love about this island!
Having put the stress of the wedding preparations behind us, our stay was really all about relaxing and taking advantage of our time in the beach. We also visited Jonah’s several times!
And then we did something we never did before (as a couple): we suited up. Well, life vest-suited up. Haha. Normally, I would be the one pushing JP to do this. Amazingly, this time around, he was the one who urged me to go. I was perfectly content just walking around the beach.
The next day, we attended the wedding. We hung out at the Shangri-La for a few hours before it started. Can I just say, Shangri-La Boracay is beautiful (expensive, but beautiful). This is the view from jp’s cousin’s room.
In the afternoon, we attended the church wedding, and then went back to the hotel for the reception. I love the idea of lighting sparklers and neon lights for the couple’s entrance.
The little wedding details
My man was pretty happy
The next day we went back to Cebu before heading back to Singapore, to officially begin life as a married couple. This concludes our summer of 2013. It was fun, crazy hectic, but totally worth everything, since we got to be with our families and then spend it on the Philippines’ beautiful islands.
So, how did your summer go?
