Where I stayed
Georges place in Baloy Beach
What I did
Chilled for a few days to get rid of the bags.....
Day two saw us wonder the area, to be honest unless you are on the beach there is not much else here although it is what I see as a typical Filippino town but as I have only been here a day and a half that remains to be seen. I got a Pedicure (I wanted one in China but left it to late) for 60 pesos (£0.85p) not what I would get in the UK but it did the job and my poorly toe looks much better now that it has started to grow. We spent the afternoon in the appartment updating the blogs and watching the pouring rain, we found out today that the rainy season is just starting....Please please let there be some good weather while we are here
Day three saw much of the same as the day before apart from it was overcast but not raining in the morning, we caught a jeepney to Subic Market which was pretty much a typical Asian market selling just about anything you want and wondered around the town, Danny had lunch in a local cafe, I will just say it was interesting!!! We stopped for a drink on the way back to the appartment and spent the late afternoon watching a film on HBO Asia channel.
Day four & Five its poured with rain so we just went out to eat and satyed around the appartment.
Day Six and finally sunshine, we went into town to pick up some tean and coffee and spent the afternoon on the beach (not the best we will admit but it had a nice breeze as the temp was in the 30's and sweat was quite littrally pouring off us
We have booked our flights to Palawan for Monday so we leave for Manila on Saturday to spend a couple of days in Manila before we fly. Palawan is down south and this is where all the islands with the white beaches are so if the weather behaves we should see some truly amazing beaches and do some snorkeling
Day seven we spent the day at Subic Zoo with George, Thess and Nikki and it has to be said what a lovely day we had with such good company.
Day Eight and Nine much the same as before as I said earlier this resort is more for expacts that seem to do the same things day out and day in, I guess its a life they choose but for Danny and I we need more to do.....again is this something that is drilled into us in the western world as I can understand with the heat that doing nothing is easier then doing something....
Anyway off to Palawan tomorrow so will sign this off and see you in Palawan
Ps Our thanks for George, Thess and Nikki
