we went to this little town called Tambisaan. it's a little fishing town not too far from our resort. there is really good snorkling near the beach. there is a lot of snorkling tour operators that bring their clients to the corals near this beach. we just swam out to the corals from the beach and avoided paying for the tour.
we sat in this little bar/restaurant by the beach. it's run by a local phillipino and her retired American GI husband. i forgot his name but he's traveled around and decided to settle down in this little fishing village on boracay. not a bad choice at all!

i forgot to mention some of the local food we tried.
1. pork adobo: it's pork or chicken cooked ina a sauce that's based on soy sauce and vinegar. taste way better than my description.
2. tinolang manok: some sort of clear broth chicken soup. very intense flavor, definitely stewed for many hours to achieve the intense chicken flavor.
3. pork sinigang: sweet and sour (almost like thai style tom yum soup) tasting soup.
4. fried liempo: deep fried pork belly. it's like thick sliced bacon but not as salty, FAT squared...one of my favourites.
5. beef tagalog: some sort of beef steak in onion brown sauce.
6. sweet and sour marlin: don't remember the name of this sauce but it's pretty good
7. large amount of fresh mango shakes. yeah the philippino mangoes are some of the best i have tried. and when they make the shakes out of fresh mangoes it's just incredible tasting!
