Palawan Adventure: Day 1

Finally, a vacation! After all the drama--scammer travel agent, saying goodbye to P12k, birthday frustration--we've finally reached this heaven of a place. We're finally in Palawan! Yey. I'm a first timer, so I'm really quite excited. What did I do on my 1st day here? See in photos...

after many exhausting months--a vacay! Yey!

Arrived at exactly 5pm. Look behind me! A rainbow:)

look closely--it's a double rainbow! Amazing:)

Required photo op at the runway with the airport name in the frame. Har.

We were picked up by 2 of Mercedes' (our chosen hotel) staff holding a placard with my name. Funny seeing my name on a placard. Lol.

Outside our room.

The whole place. Cozy.

The place is just in front of the airport. Literally. We can actually walk going there. The owner is also very nice and gracious.

 Ate dinner at Kinabuchs which is just an P8 ride away.

green mango salad

sizzling blue marlin steak. It's so good we finished everything!

Also treated myself to a mani/pedi!

New nails. Lol.

then passed by this store--where I bought lots of accessories! Can't help it.

...and another store where I bought a leopard print eco bag! Who's addicted to leopard print?

 Coffee at Itoy's. Cute place. :)

..and ordered mango cheesecake and zuniga coffee. Yum. 

I asked for their wifi password and the girl gave me "bananacaramelfraf" Thought the "f" at the end was just a password trick. But after 5 minutes I still can't connect. Damn.

Blue necklace--one of my favorite buys for the day. :) Only P45.

My other loots--all for P300!  :)

 top-H&M, shorts-Space, shoes-from Vietnam, cardigan -Forever 21

Early day tomorrow. Honda Bay tour! Later guys!:)
