My Trip to the P.I.

As you know, I just got back from a incredible two week vacation in the georgas islands of the Philippines (or the P.I.) The trip back to the P.I. was an incredible experience. I developed this blog not only for myself, but for my friends and family. I fully engaged in the incredible culture and ate a shitload of Filipino dishes. Here's my blog of the P.I., and I hope you enjoy it.
from left to right - Manong Arvin, J-Unit, Manang Iris, Pangging, and Jim Boy.
The pic above was my first Philippines bar experience. We are having a few drinks at the Bedrock Bar in downtown Manila. I look pretty happy for someone who took the longest flight ever.

The next city I visited on my trip to the P.I. was Iloilo City. This is the city where I was born.

The P.I. is an incredibly scenic place. It's a tropical island filled with many palm trees.

The Jeepney is one of the main modes of public transportation in the P.I. If you ever go to the P.I you definately got to get in one of these bad boys.
Another popular mode of public transportation is the motorcycle. Count how many Filipinos you can fit on one motorcycle. That driver has got skills and crunched balls.

Here's a great video on rawness scenery of the Philippines. All you have to do is the click the white button on the video.

I took this pic on the way to the beach. I would only assume this pic is part of the history of the P.I. Madgellen was the first explorer from the west to visit the P.I. It would also be his last. In the end the Philippines became a Spanish colony in 1865.
In 2006, I invaded the Philippine bars with my cousins. from left to right - Cousin shy one, Cousin Jericho, Cousin NengNeng, Cousin Mikey, Cousin Ace, Manang Iris, my chopped off head, and cousin Jim Boy.

Her's a video of my cousins ordering drinks. Look how patient the waiter is.
Pictues only give you only a snapshot of an idea of how much fun I had. Enjoy the videos!

Big Bro's Wedding

My Big Bro's wedding was the primary reason why I planned a vacation in the motherland. My Big Brother and Aronie both have families living in the Philippines, so they decided to have the formal wedding in the P.I. Both familes and friends of familes showed up to a festive time. Come on in beeyatch!

The above pic is where we had the Family getogether dinner. The Family getogether had about 40 people.

Here's a great pic of my extended family. In pic -Cousin Langging, Cousin NengNeng, Cousins Panging, Mom, and Niece Alex.

The pic above - New family members are enjoying the Family Getoghter Dinner.
In Pic -Auntie Inday trying to figure out how the teapot works

In this above pic, Cousins Pangging and NengNeng are feeding Alex Uncle Jimmie's cough medicine. JK

The above pic is in the hotel lobby of the wedding reception. I'm the one really slouched in the chair. I wasn't feeling to hot.

Here's my Big Brother JoJo (brother's nickname.) He's wearing a traditional Filipino hand embroidered formal wedding shirt called a barong.

Shout out to my couisin Jim Boy for taking a great balcony photo. This church was amazing!

Pic of Manang Iris (in red), and the best men holding their nuts...

Pic of my proud parents
In Pic Aronie's sister (the best bridesmaid), Aronie, Big Bro, and some guy named Al.
Family pic. Yeah it's safe to say I'm the best looking one in the family. JK.

Niece Alex, Aronie, and Big Bro.

It's time to let the white birds loose.

Try to find me in the above pic. I'm skate or die!

The above pic is Chris and his Pops' celebrating the end to the wedding.

My BigBro and Aronie had an excellent wedding reception. The MC did a s**tl**d in no time. There was the dinner, the dance, the throwing of the under garments, a videography, best man's speech, best man's man speech, cutting of the cake, and me puking in the bathroom (Damn Bachelor parties.)

Cousin Langging caught the bouqet and Chris caught (or should I say my brother flinged) the garter.
I'm glad my parents decided to hire the Filipina models to be the bridesmaids.
I apoligize for not posting any pics. I've been so swamped with work. This weekend can't come fast enough. Well thanks for checking out the wedding pics beeyatches. I hope you enjoyed them. Peace.

Boracay Vids

As you know, I just had a two week vacation traveling all over the P.I (Philippine Islands.) I've got great pics and great videos. The videos are tight and I think you'll like them. However, there exist no booty videos. Sorry fellas.

To see the video just click on the big white play looking button. Sorry for not saying much in the videos.
My mom, my cousin Gem B., and I grew some balls and went into this cave. As you can see in the video, one little slip and we'll be swimming with the fishes.

The dude in front of the camera is the Filipino tour guide. The dude taking the crappy video is me.

Shoutout to the internuggler for helping me figure out how to get damn videos on the internet.

My Trip to the P.I.

Welcome to my trip to the P.I. (Philippine Islands). I went on a two week vacation to the P.I. I have posted it online so my friends and family can view. Over the next month, I'll be posting a "blog" of My Trip to the P.I. This week I have posted pics of Boracay Islands.
From left to right - Cousin Gem, Al Jennifer, my pops, my moms, Steve, Anna, and me.

This boat took us to Boracay Island.
Al and Jennifer trying their best not to look like tourists.

Wow that's real pretty. Let's get a closer look...
Yeah, she's hot....Me, my parents, and my cousin soaking in the hot Philippine sun.
As you can see in the pic above, Boracay has really warm blue water,
and powder fine white sand.This is Crystal Cove, which is a cove in the Boracay Islands. The Boracay Islands has a few caves and many scenic views.

This is my favorite pic.

We be caving...

The pic above is the cave Me, my mom, and cousin Gem B. went into.

The above pic displays my photo skills.

I was tempted to let you go little monkey!
Borocay Island is filled with an eclectic collection of tourists. I met tourists from America, Canada, South Korea, Germany, Japan, Australia, and the UK. My cousin Gem B. and I checked out the bars, the drinks, and most importantly the Filipinas...
San Mig light is the beer of choice on Borocay Islands. A bottle of San Mig is $1.00 (=50 Filipino pesos)!

As you can see in the drink above, my drink of choice at Boracay was a Gin and Tonic. At some of these bars you had to remind the bartenders to put a lime in the Gin and Tonic.
So at the bars in Boracay me and my cousin Gem B. were intersted in meeting new people. The first night at Boracay we met these girls in the following pics. The above pic was one of the first girls we met. Cousin Gem B. was stoked when he first met this mother of one.

This above girl was definately a party girl. Oh yeah she had some quality assets.
I really don't know how this above pic got on my digi, Let alone on my blog.
So the above girl was a party chick too. She was vacationioned with her friend from Manila.
This was the Boracay part of my Philippines trip. I'll post more pics of "My Trip to the PI " next Sunday night. Thanks for checking out my blog. Please feel free to write a comment and drop a line. Peace.
