Jet Skiing: Revving it Up in Bellarocca

Their last day in Bellarocca was full of adrenaline-fuelled fun as they took water sports activities available on the island. The windsurfing was all fun and fear-defying activy but tiring. They rest and took photos for a while on the Bellaroccan seaside.

"Let's go for a spin!", Rome exclaimed after a few moments of boredom. The rest of the group hesitated at first. Anney for one, was afraid of waters and they thought Ykaie won't be allowed to ride on the watercraft, PLUS the price of jet ski ride was kinda expensive, around Php 2500 for just 15 minutes!!! But he was very persistent to ride on the water bike. He tempted all of them to ride on the marine vehicle regardless of the fact that they would exceed to their Php 20,000  welcome value credit, they agreed to cover the excess evenly. *end of discussion*

Their instructor taught and demonstrated them the basic controls - it's like plug and play, very easy. Fearless Rome in his black rash guard, board shorts and life vest looked like a seasoned pro as he jetted around. Fact is, it was his first chance to play that extreme water action. Just to have a photo opp riding on a jet ski, Anney conquered her fears and rode with Rome. Rome in controls, Anney held on tight and looked delighted as they zoomed around on Bellaroccan waters but when Rome steered the high speed craft up, she screamed like there was no tomorrow.

The Adarnes had their chance of riding the water bike, Ykaie was so giggly  while her dad maneuver the jet ski smoothly. They rest of the 15 minute session was consumed by Rome. He tested his skills and tried some tricks as he revved the jet ski. He fell in love with the activity, jet skiing is absolutely brilliant and highly satisfactory water sport. He enjoyed even the last few seconds cruising the Bellarocan sea. It was indeed, another perfect day full of sun and fun!

International Release: Timeless Fashion by Topman

From rugged and utilitarian to formal and classy, man's fashion has been revolutionized these days, as men begin to spend more on clothes and are not afraid to try daring style to keep up to date on the latest trends. Clearly, there's a rise in men seeking sleek tailored suits. They're much more savvy and are spending more and more. Yuppies like me tends to save a quarter of their earnings to change their wardrobe every season. But as a man of practicality, considering the year nearing its end, how do I cope in keeping myself fashionable or "in trend" without spending too much of my hard earned money? 

 Although I have colorful shirts for some other occasion like summer, most of my clothes are "safe" when it comes to dressing myself up. I opt to choose safe colors like black, gray, brown, blue and white. I could never go wrong with these colors especially in white on all occasions and seasons. My latest purchase of white top was from Topman. It's fabric, cotton - very comfortable to wear on both hot and cold days. My target look: celebrity / millionaire look.

From what I observed on different fashion magazines and online, celebrity and millionaire people chose to wear simple and bright white and it is really "nakakayaman" ( millionaire look ). So I tried that idea and top  it on my white shorts. Did I achieve my target look? Eeekkk, NO? Limme complete the look and put my super size shades on....

Apart from that, I could also wear it on top of my favorite, torn-out, Levis jeans or layered it with jacket over my H & M khaki during formal occasions. This white top shirt from Topman, for me, is really timeless.

Topman has been leading the way in bringing men's high-street fashion bang up to date, there's no doubt about it. When it comes to reinterpreting catwalk trends Topman really can't be beaten. But I agree with you its price range is always way out of our budget. So how can I afford such branded clothes? If you have noticed from my previous posts I have few branded clothes; Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Marks and Spencer, etc. Those were came from charity stores. I admit I am a fan and I am not ashamed of it. There were times that I bought brand new clothes but I usually bought it on online sale or deals. It is not expensive to have a timeless wardrobe, I'm telling you. There are more bargain online stores out there and its just a click away. 

So boys, when it's time get shopping, you know what and where you wanna spend your money to.

Best Breakfast in Boac

Pandesal with Bacon Php 85.00

If you plan to go to Bellaroca this coming holiday season, I suggest to spend a day or two in the province's capital, Boac. There are some interesting places to visit in the first class municipality such as old houses and the old Boac church .

If you wonder where to stay, the only decent accommodation is the Boac Hotel. When you plan it, make sure that its not weekend when you arrive in the charming town so you could visit the museum and other government establishments. That was our mistake when we decided to stay for a day in Boac after our Bellaroca trip, most of the establishments were closed.

Beef Tapa Php 95.00

With nothing else to do, what do you think occupied our time? Of course, food tripping!  Here are the spread of breakfast meals available in Cafe Ma'Mita, the in house restaurant in Boac Hotel. My CIL had Pandesal with bacon while me and Anney chose tapsilog. Peachy and Ykaie shared with pancake, bacon and egg.

Pancake with Bacon & Egg Php 100.00
