The island was festive, people greeted and smiled at each other as if they’ve been friends for a lifetime. It felt like everybody knew everybody, which I loved. People danced on the beach like there was no tomorrow.
I always choose to get out of Manila during New Year’s. I don’t like those loud firecrackers that sound like a bomb just exploded, not to mention the pollution it brings. You literally end up with soot on your face.
We had 5 fun-filled days on the island. Inspite the occasional drizzle, it was a memorable beginning of the new year.
