Boracay: Day 3

Our third day in Boracay was free and easy.

We started our day by checking out the shops and also got ourselves a SIM card so we would be connected to the internet world. We really could not live our lives without internet, dang!

We had our lunch at Cyma, a Greek restaurant. It is one of the top must-try restaurants in Boracay. Initially we wanted to have our dinner there the night before but it was full house. Therefore, we made a reservation for lunch. I was really looking forward to what we would be having there. It’s Greek cuisine, alright? I have never had it.

No, I don’t remember the name of this dish. I can only recall it is an appetizer and it is cheese on the pan.

Mine main dish – Pastisado (Greek Osso Bucco): Beef shank braised in Greek tomato sauce served over spaghetti.

Our dessert – fried mango with an ice-cream on top.

We went to explore Station 1 of White Beach, after our lunch. The weather was great – super sunny and warm. No, I didn’t enjoy the sun but, I love the view.

You can find a lot of luxurious resorts in Station 1. One of Boracay’s famous landmarks is also there, Willy’s Rock. The beach is wider and the place is quiet compared to Station 2 – where we were staying.

We hung out in Station 1 the whole afternoon until evening where we had to walked back to kickstart our evening sailing. We felt cheated as well because we sailed out to the sea for less than 10 minutes and we were back to the shore.


That night, we had our dinner at D’ Talipapa. It is a famous wet market in Boracay where you could buy fresh and live seafood from the stall vendors and then proceed to the restaurants nearby to have your seafood prepared in the style of your choice. However, this was also the most stressful dinner we had in Boracay. You had to bargain to get a fair price and trust me, it was not easy. We were conned once and the vendors were not happy when we found out and returned to them. I understand that they have to earn money for living but to deceive people in a disgusting manner was just unacceptable. To be honest, that’s when I started to dislike the locals there. I even told off to those who held and grabbed my arms. Super rough and rude.

Fortunately the food was worth the troubles. However, that was the only and last dinner we had at D’ Talipapa regardless how much we love calamari.

No, no nightlife for me. I knocked out and fell asleep after my shower..
