We woke up to the same daily grind: Breakfast and blogging on the beachfront at the Red Coconut hotel in Borocay. We met up with our Singapore friends at 9:00 AM for our "Island Hopping" & Snorkeling tour. The boat was delayed so Jasmine and I got our hair braided in the interim.
The banca was anchored in the ocean so we could snorkel. We fed the fishes bread so they would surround us. There were different fishes but it wasn't that great.
We headed to Puka beach for some swimming and a barbecue grilled lunch on the beach. "Yapak" beach is remote and quiet compared to the famous white beach. Although the sand wasn't as powdery soft, I thought the water was much clearer and turquoise than white beach. The beach is covered in puka seashells used to make necklaces and bracelets.
We anchored for a final snorkeling spot on the tour.
We headed to the famous Cocomangas known for their party scene and shooter bar. The bar offers a friendly competition. Their motto is, "Do it for your country!" If you are still standing after 15 shots, your name goes up on the wall.
At 10:00 PM the bar was already packed. We couldn't get a booth or a table so we settled for the bar. Sky and the Mo took on the challenge while the girls and I drank Jagger bombs, vodka drinks and took Malibu pineapple shots.
A booth finally opened up and we grabbed it and sat Indian style. Actually, some of us danced in the booth.
We had so much fun dancing to Pitbull, Ke$ha and even the 1995 hit, "Macarena" The dancfloor was a sausage fest. The guys to girl ratio was like 20 to 1.
