Boracay Beach Wedding – #DeeNewlyWeds

I’m sorry for the long break – it has exactly been a week since my last post. I attended a wedding of a friend in Boracay last week, so that disrupted my blogging schedule. It was a lovely wedding by the beach – and I got to meet up with old friends. We had a good time, swimming during the day, and drinking in the evening!

We stayed at the White House Boracay, which was right beside the venue of the wedding. I was able to get some good rates from Agoda (over 50% off normal rates) so it was a snatch! There are also some good bars beside this hotel that offer great happy hour deals such as Sur and Two Seasons’ Bar Lo.

Reunion with my old teammates at work!

The best four-cheese pizza in the PH at Bar Lo Two Seasons!

The wedding was held at Sea Wind in Station 1. Look at how the place was set-up for the ceremony!

The lovely set-up!

The wedding reception was definitely the highlight of that weekend – with overflowing alcohol and 90s to early 2000s music. It was the best wedding party I’ve ever attended! These are some of my most alcoholic friends and there was a time when we came to Boracay yearly to celebrate Labor Day weekend, so this was really quite a reunion.

To be honest, I normally don’t like weddings, but this one was just so simple, casual, and very intimate. It was very personal and focused really on the couples versus the formalities of a traditional wedding. It’s fair to say that everyone went home either drunk or contented.  Surprisingly enough, I woke up the next day without any hangover!

Cheers to #DeeNewlyWeds!

The Other Boracay / The Lazy Dog Bed & Breakfast

I have been to Boracay several times, and it’s always been the White Beach area from Station 2 to Station 1. This time, I ended up on the other side of Boracay because I was looking for a cheap place to stay in for a night. 

And I think I just found a treasure.

In the other side of Boracay lies a beach that’s a lot quieter, more relaxed, and is a different picture from its more famous counterpart. I stayed at The Lazy Dog Bed & Breakfast, which was equally charming. 

The Lazy Dog

All I needed was a bed for a night while waiting for my friends to arrive the next day. Their dorm bed costs only 575 pesos (all-in) for one night including breakfast. Considering how lovely the place is, it’s totally worth it. You could literally just chill and be lazy in there. 

Cozy enough

Look how peaceful this place is!

I loved the open restaurant

Enjoying my happy hour in peace.

Since this place is on the other side of Boracay, you have to take a tricycle if you want to go to White Beach…or walk the mile if you don’t mind the heat. This area of Boracay reminds me of Vietnam’s small alleys – there’s a lot of hip places popping up in the area such as coffee shops, bars, and more unique hostels. I would have loved to stay longer, with friends this time! I’ll definitely come back and stay here again.

Have you ever been to Boracay? If you haven’t you should! It’s not perfect but it’s one of the best places to escape to! And happy hour is a must!
