Mommy Growing up: The Beach

The Beach

I am linking this post to the  Best of 2011, having the most comments on my blog for this year.

For a three-day conference at Boracay island almost five years ago, I seized the moment to mix business with pleasure. Thus, I brought my two kids and their two nannies along with me. For three days, my guys enjoyed the beautiful white sand beaches and the clear blue sea of Philippine's famous Boracay island.

Behold the beach!
Early morning beauty of Boracay!
My then 5-months old Aron enjoying the cool refreshing water.
Yes, the white sand.
My then 4-year old Joey enjoying the white beach .
This is Paradise! the other end of Boracay!
with my little Joey.
Island hopping with my colleagues!
On board the motorized "bangka"/canoe on the wavy sea! Fun!
Snorkeling on the clear blue water.
Enjoying the beautiful pristine part of the island. 
Enjoying the great waves!
Enjoying the beautiful sunset!

Photos were taken with my then vintage 2.0 mega pixels Sony Cyber-Shot U camera.



  1. Beautiful pictures Katya Kate! This is definitely a place to relax and enjoy nature in all its glory. Thanks for sharing and have yourself a good week.

  2. I miss boracay! Me and my cousins were just talking about going to boracay again. Sana matuloy.

  3. naku, mommy katya, kagagaling ko lang sa Boracay. super napahanga ako sa white sands nito. sobrang pino parang pulbo. world class ang Boracay, sana lang ma preserve at ingatan maigi. may paunti unti na din kasing trash sa dagat, and may nakuha pa nga kaming basag na bote, buti na lang talaga at hindi naapakan ng kapatid ko.

  4. Thank you so much Judy! Yes, definitely that place is awesome!
    @Anney: Yes, visit that place and for sure you will have fun!
    @KM: Thanks for your honest insights! So true, that place sadly is becoming too commercialized. However, part of the island far from the stations was well-maintained, so pristine and so clean. I am with you, hopefully it's nature's beauty will be well-preserved.

  5. Very beautiful! I would love to be there, too.
    Happy WW!
