almost the new year

We had a blast our last day in 2007. What a FUN day. First we woke up and went swimming in the ocean, felt sooooo good. Clear water, white sands. Heavenly. We wanted to jet ski, but the prices were the same as going in the US, so I was not feeling it. Plus we did that last time in Bora. We decided to try something new, ATV up the mountain to Mt. Luho. Seriously, this was sooooooo much fun!!! It was amazing. I got my own ATV and mine decided to break half way up the mountain. It was so funny. The little guy who was guiding us was holding my purse on his right arm while trying to guide us. He didnt want me to bother with my purse so he held it for me. I did not argue with that haha. It was a really bumpy and fast ride up the mountain, but so much freakin fun! I had never been to Mt.

some dog in Boracay, dont know if the spots r real haha
Luho, this place is awesome. Amazing views, great weather, nice breeze! Beautiful.

This day Tiffy got a henna tattoo, I finally got to eat my fave fave fave BANANA Q! Omg!! If you go to Bora, you must have banana q! It's fried banana on a stick with a carmelized sugar on top. Woww! 

We went back to the room, prettied up, and went to the mini mart for drinks. Drank in the room, then went to Hey Jude to check out the white party, then headed over to Club Paraw for a night of FUN. There were soooo many Europeans, Australians, etc in Bora. Not too much eye candy for me! :(  I did not see my crushes all night on New Yrs. Dont know where they went! At first I was not feeling the music, they are really into house/trance/techno...there was no hiphop anywhere! But.

on the way to Mt. Luho
..after a few drinks, I was really liking the music! This trip to the PI got me into a new type of music, so I think thats cool. We had a blast this night. Watched fireworks that seemed to go on for HOURS over the beach! Danced the night away till 4am or later. Met locals and hung with them the whole night while Tahne was having a little too much fun with a guy from the UK. Tiffy was up on the DJ booth macking on the DJ! I was hanging with the group of guys and girls from Iloilo who were there for New Yrs.

This is when the night took a turn. So we decide to leave Club Paraw to check out the rest of the bars and clubs. We start walking and Miss Drunk basically wants to go .

on the way up the mountain
.ok..I will leave out a few details...but it involved swimming...in the ocean. Ok so she is joking around we are all laughing at her, then she sees a "sandcastle". U know, those famous sandcastles they build in Bora and the guards even stand near them ALL night watching over the art that was created. So she thinks HEY I am gonna fly over that sandcastle. think I can do it??? We all dare her (BAD BAD friends) lol. We DO not think she would do it though!!!!! Well she does, she runs and runs and runs and tries to FLY over the sandcastle. Do u think she flew???  um, no. Ugh. She jumps on the sandcastle, knocks a part of it down, tumbles down and twists and turns and lands on her knee. We all fall on the floor laughing. I wish I got it on camera!

Next think u know, laughter, turns to tears.

ATV up the mountain
She is crying and wont stop. We all sit around and have a time out with her while she recovers. About an hour goes by and she is crying and wont stop. She is really hurt, or is she drunk and acting? Me and Tiffy were SO embarassed and quickly sobered up. We were embarassed coz our new friends were babysitting her instead of partying! They would not leave us. They said they would carry her to the next club but she did not want to move. She said to leave her there all night. SO we are trying to convince her to leave, it begins to rain. So we are all sitting at the beach with sand ALL over the place, in the rain, 6am, Tahne with the broken down leg, crying, and telling her we gotta go. The boys are so kind to CARRY her back to the hotel. It is about a one mile hike to the hotel.
sunset on New Years Eve
So we get on flat ground (no more sand) and we get some locals to "make" a wheelchair. They literally put a plastic chair on to a wheelbarrow and we wheel her to the hotel. WOW. Its 6:30 or 7am and we roll up to the hotel with miss crying/drunk/broken down friend of mine at this upscale hotel. Everyone is staring. Wow. The boys drop her off into the room and u see a TON of sand fly around her as she is thrown on to the bed. ..............the next day at sunset we all wake up.....

On New Years Day...my BFF is hurt. We take her to the local "doctor". Shady! All he does is flirt with us and laugh at our story of she got hurt. Wow. Tahne calls her mom and tells her what happened. I am humiliated. I am the good girl here taking care of Tita's kids and look what trouble we get into! Man.

enjoying the last day of 2007
So the dr. tells us to go to the only clinic on the island for an X-ray to see if anything is broken. We get there and it is something you see in a movie. Sooooo old school in there!!!!! Wow. Nobody is even in there, then some guy comes out after 15 min of us waiting and says the "X-ray" guy is on vacation. Wtf. Why is there a emergency clinic with nobody working there except the receptionist? Imagine a real emergency? Scary! So Tahne can't walk. We wheelchair her back to the hotel and she decided she wants to stay in. Me and Tiffy leave her and go party again with our new friends. Tahne wanted us to leave her, so we can have fun our last night.

I was obsessed with watching Pinoy Big Brother since it was showing on the TV in the hotel. Before we went out with our friends, I was glued to the screen. I love Big Brother. ;X

A waste of a day coz we slept all day and woke up just for sunset. But sad that my BFF was broken and could not join us for one last night of partying!~
