10 things i hate about Boracay .

1 of 10 : Confused with sexual orientation.

Within 1 week of visit in Boracay i have :

– met about 40 gay guys

– seen “working girls ” everywhere ( i really mean everywhere at any time , i dont even know anymore who is a working and who is not .)

– seen transvestites ” catch ” drunk guys after midnight with their iconic pick up line : ” love you long time ” . Wonder how is ” morning after ” for those guys.

– been asked where is my girlfriend about 20 times ( straight female , just likes to wear simple shorts And tshirt )

– and i met a single – straight guy that turned out to be bi- sexual .

And of course its famous for this sexual orientation, “word of mouth “promo .

YES ” AND SHE FROZE AWKWARDLY STARING AT ME . MINUTE LATER STILL AWKWARD EYE CONTACT , AND NO REPLY .

 

Welcome to Boracay – Love you long time .This is the place where you never know .

2 of 10 : Pay for your own harassment – Fire dancers .

They are great … Until they dance next to your Pizza place with their fat belly .. Trying to get tips .

But you have never called them over .

They will harass you until you will give them a tip .

Fire dancers shows are everywhere in Boracay and many of them are amazing , just don’t go to a restaurant where fire dancers are performing .

 

3 of 10 :Damn chihuahua

Want to have a dog – don’t let it s**** all over the beach .Seems like this is going on every morning on the white sand beach . Bare feet running is my favourite , until i step into the … ” thing ”

Solution : Don’t take IT out of your house .
Or even Better don’t have a dog , have a cat instead .

SEEN TRANSVESTITES ” CATCH ” DRUNK GUYS AFTER MIDNIGHT WITH THEIR ICONIC PICK UP LINE : ” LOVE YOU LONG TIME ” . WONDER HOW IS ” MORNING AFTER ” FOR THOSE GUYS.

 

4 of 10 :Expire date for friendship .

God dam it .. As soon as you meet someone nice they have to leave …. Everyone who arrives in here are just looking for quick pastime and boom – done .For those who stay on the Island this is not a good news .Its like your heart is getting broken every week , by amazing people you meet . This is the place where friendship have an expire date .

Of course its not all bad , some just cancel their flight and stay forever …

5 of 10 : Bbq and rice

Enough is enough . I can not eat rice anymore .. every possible corner is selling exactly the same things . BBQ or a burger with meat and tomato sauce … Or rice of course . and plain . Really ? Where is the sauce ?! What happened with Spanish influence ?

Of course there are many restaurants offering all possible cuisine from the world , but i m talking local here .

 

6 of 10 :Annoying sellers .

Just stop selling me this S **** . I mean it … If you have seen me about 500 times passing , why do you offer me those sun glasses again ? ( by the way haven’t you noticed that i already wear a pair ?)

street vendors must be the most annoying thing and if you are being kind and will talk to them or just say hi – within minutes you will be surrounded by 5 of them .

And the funny things is , 99 % of tourists hate them , but then there is this one old fat lady with bag full of cash and she buys stuff from these sellers ( 4 times more than in market ) .And because of her sellers will never give up ..

 

7 of 10 : Say “YES ” one more time and i will explode …

#Always , YES

Every time you ask something anywhere answer is YeS , but after a while you realize , answer is yes because some locals do not speak english and they see YES as a solution .

Well thats not a problem if you don’t speak English , if you tell me that you don’t understand . Or at least if its shown in your body language some how –

Dont say YES and then just stand there wondering .And waste my time. Seems thats Yes is the normal reply to any question .

” Do you want to give me everything you own ” me
” yes ” and she froze awkwardly staring at me . Minute later still awkward eye contact , and no reply .
” Do you speak English ? ” me
” Yes ” she said ….

ARE DAILY LIFE NEEDS LESS IMPORTANT THAT THE LATEST MODEL OF A SMARTPHONE ?

8 of 10 : Need calculator to count 8 + 10

Regular day – buying pack of cookies and coffee at local market .. And a girl at the counter runs to look for calculator . All i have is 2 products (8+ 10 ) ..
Maybe im just gifted , that i can calculate it !

9 of 10 : Sh*t on the beach .

” Do not litter on the beach ..” says beach signs , posters and t- shirts that locals are wearing . .

I got the message !
But whats is there so difficult for locals to understand , do you really have to throw your sh*t out in front of the litter sign while wearing a shirt that says : no littering .

I mean , talk about the example, right !

10 of 10 : No house , but newest i-phone

When you walk around In Boracay you can see an interesting sight :

Locals will sit in front of their house ( no doors , half a roof is broken , chickens running in the living room…. ) , but they will have the latest model of smartphone in their hands . How is this working ? Are daily life needs less important that a latest model of a smartphone ?
