A dog’s life

tricycleLast time I was obsessing over mangoes. How can you not be when even the tricycles look like one. This particular one followed me all the way to Puka beach on the other side of Boracay.

puka shellsPuka beach is famous for it shells so I picked some and took a picture and admired them all day. Giving up half om my sun bed for them.

Shake it


The sunsets in Boracay were as amazing as the flaming mangos at Cyma

flaming mangoIt took me a couple of days to tell the difference.

Cyma flaming mango Until I realized the mango is served with ice cream. This is obviously a mango.

mango shakeMango shakes are tricky, they don’t come with ice cream. Just ice and no flames. I had a huge mango shake tab at the hotel that “caught on fire”, suddenly the shakes became the sunset, and my tab disappeared.

Up the coconut tree

palmsA picture from our balcony in Boracay, I would say a room with a view. If it wasn’t for those palm trees. They were everywhere in Boracay and it was really hard to take a picture without them. Not that it was a problem, just sayin’.

palm climbThis guy! He took it to a whole new level and climbed all the way up to the top. Just to get a view without a coconut tree in the way. Crazy!

bullet shih at cymaFinally Bullet was reconnected with his paintings at Cyma. Our friend Sunshine’s fantastic restaurant. Been eating so much seafood I now look like a crab. Or I did at least after the first day on the beach.

I was going to post a longer thing but time is short and internet a bit slow. I’m slow, not short here compared to the locals.



I’ve now been far away from home for over a week. With mixed luck with internet connections. But here I am now on the net in the Philippines! The first days I was in Manila and the first night I was thrown in to deep water. At a pool party!

pigThe first filipino pig I met, his name was Lechon he had lost a few kilos, but didn’t seem too excited about it.

I promise more pictures from Manila later. Right now I’m at White Beach, Boracay. Can’t complain. Here’s my first beach selfie of the year. This was the first day on the beach, don’t worry I’m getting darker and will show you soon, muhahahaha
