Margie and Breathtaking Boracay Beach


I wonder whether you could find me in the photo below. This was taken on September 10, 1995. I won't be able to recall that but thanks to the printed date on this scanned "kodak" moment shot I am able to take you back to one unforgettable night in my college life.


Meet my friend, former classmate Margie Jaramilla-Abarro all poise and grace wearing a white gown and her  reigning Ms. Nursing sash to my right. Yes I am the trying hard beauty queen girl in a long, black velvet gown  to her left. I must admit I wasn't chosen to represent our class for the beauty pageant. I volunteered oh gosh this is too shameful LOL. I did not go home crying though because I went home with a sash and a trophy for being 2nd runner up. It makes me laugh out loud to recall what a scandalous sports wear competition that was for me. Oh gosh, my cheeks are burning up just thinking about it so before I lose all composure let me share with you...

my beauty queen friend Margie's....Trip To Breathtaking Boracay

photo of Margie, Boracay  February 2013



One of the world's top relaxation destinations, Boracay is located south of Manila. Known for its white sand beaches and tranquil islands Margie and her family chose to unwind there February of this year. Though most of you must have already experienced Boracay's finest, I unfortunately still have to see the place. I have been kidding the hubby I need to fit in a bikini first before we travel there so it will take quite a long time before I see the place. :) 


windsurfing and kiteboarding in Boracay
windsurfing and kite boarding are some of the leisure activities one could
 enjoy in Boracay

Day 1 in Boracay, Margie's awesome sunset watch...and festive nightlife



the feel of water and fine sand tickling Margie's soles...oh how I love to walk beside her


sunset in Boracay
still looking slim and sexy after having given birth to three kids I asked Margie her beauty secret which she says is simply proper diet and exercise...I am dieting and exercising very soon haha, 


...and of course finding the love of her life, Doc Jay has made her a completely happy woman
nothing inspires me more than the sight of a happy couple and the sunset...


...after the sun has left the sky that day, they were off to one fabulous night of lights, food and sounds...let us join them!

  5. Margie is blessed with such a great figure. She doesnt' look like she has 3 kids. By the way, I also volunteered to join a pageant back in highschool, but that was a deal among all of us in the barkada.

  8. Wow! your friend did maintain her flawlessness. Browsing at your photos made me recall our last trip at Bora. Dyan din kani nag-stay sa La Carmela. The beach is so good though hindi ako nag-swim. But my eyes feasted on those Korean bodies. LOL Yes, sarap din ng foods dyan.
