This last post on Boracay will feature our favorite food finds and the endless search for booze on Boracay.

Next on the list is the famous La Paz Batchoy on Iloilo at Deco's. I first tried Deco's in Iloilo last January when me and chyng were there for the Dinagyang festival. And the moment I saw their branch on Boracay, I immediately went inside without even asking my friends. I ordered the biggest serving of Batchoy at 85 pesos (70 pesos in their Iloilo branch) and the big pandesal for 4 pesos each. Of course, I loved it. They also have free refill of soup just like in Iloilo. What's different here is that they serve rice meals which is totally forgettable. But the Batchoy is really yummy!

THE ENDLESS SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT BOOZE
And then there's the Boracay party scene... But I don't wanna "party" like loud music and people dancing on top of their seats 'coz it's way past my age now (I like to chill and have a decent conversation while having 3 or 4 beers :)
We stayed in Boracay for 3 full days and 2 nights. And every night we scouted every bar to booze up. In those 2 nights, we just found ourselves lounging in a cute little bar on the shore along station 3. In that 2 nights, we finished a couple of beers and some cutesy cocktails. We just got sleepy every time.
People in that bar knew each other, and for 2 nights, we got acquainted to some of them. While paying our bill on the counter we heard 2 English men arguing about something (read it with a bloody accent) ;
English man 1 - You know the Civil war was the *%$#!@^ (garbled)
English man 2 - No! you weren't there, what happened was &^%$#!#$ (garbled)
me (with a bloody accent) - Oooh! we have a History teacher over here that can....
They didn't even bother. Haha. But we wished we had that same high that they have. We didn't achieve it on that two nights. But nonetheless, we enjoyed our favorite chill spot at the far end of station 3 - where everyone seems to know each other. I loved the bean bags but hated the mosquitoes.

And then we found it! The famous shake in Boracay - Jonah's. Their shakes are from 95 to 120 pesos. I ordered the Banana Choco Peanut while one of my friends had Mango Banana (both for 110 pesos). It tasted really good and refreshing. Perfect for the heat.
What made our day was the Mango Rhum which was my other friend's shake (also at 110 pesos). We were curious on how this one would actually taste. And when we got to taste it? It was divine. Fresh mango shake with a strong kick of rhum afterwards. It was just the right booze on a hot sunny morning.
I finished one-third of my Banana Choco Peanut when a light bulb lit on my head - I'm gonna ask for an extra shot of rhum on my shake. I asked Ate Server if that would be possible and she nodded. Extra shot of rhum on any shake for 40 pesos only. Hmmm... evil grin...
|Kuya saan po 'yung Jonah's?|

|there's no "Banana Choco Peanut Rhum" right? but they can!|

After that, we looked for a perfect spot on the shore and chilled on the beach with our giddy acts. I even climbed the grotto and dove from the top.
|Rhum then beer|
|Finally - Willys rock|
|can anyone score me this bikini top... pretty please!|
|Sheena sabi ko upo ka lang hindi higa|
|Kuya, Carla lang po!|
