Marketman Does Boracay

by Marketman


Marketman on the beach in Boracay about an hour ago… I am not responding to email enquiries but there are more posts coming to keep you all amused. I am amazed I can log on to see what’s going on, but I am online a lot less than usual!

    The power of wireless communication enjoying the sun and beach! Do not forget the sunblock and apply it 30 minutes before hitting the outdoor. Throw a handful of that talcum powdered white sand up in the air for me. Have fun fun fun!

    Your undivided devotion to your blog site is quite amazing. With today’s technology, you can be relaxing on the beach while also having a pulse on Marketmanila, wireless of course! The photography is equally amazing. Don’t forget to share all your local “bite experiences”. Enjoy!

    Hope you packed your suntan lotion along! Now, take your laptop and leave it in your room. Grab a cold beer or something with an umbrella and enjoy your vacation!

    Restaurants to try:

    1. True Food (Indian)
    2. Banza (Portuguese)
    3. Aria (Pizza and Pasta)
    4. Manana (Guacamole dip and tortillas)
    5. Gusthaff (spelling?)(Grilled food)

    Ask for the paraw called Frankie Baby and go on a sunset ride to balinghai, a small Island. You can also call Nami and they mroe upscale Paraws, with uniformed crew, cold drinks and fluffy towels.

    I guess you’re staying at Friday’s? Good choice! Their Friday night buffet is famous, and very good value.

    I used to manage a resort there for 2 wonderful years 15 years ago. Boy, I had a blast! Heard that there were lots of changes happened through the years esp. the physical stucture of the resorts now. I’m anxiously waiting for your latest update on Bora!

    Wow MM, Bora!! Truly heaven on earth =) Must try is the Mandala Spa. A bit pricey, but oh so worth it!

    I’ve only been to boracay in the 90’s and twice i stayed at Fridays. I loved that resort. And the beach in that area is the best! I haven’t been to the “Bora” of today because I don’t like crowded places and lots of people. And that’s what I see on TV. I do hope though you got the peace and quiet you were looking for since it’s off season already.

    Post more pics please.
