Karuna Suites, Boracay

Karuna Suites, Boracay For our recent family trip to Boracay, I did a search for family rooms using booking.com. Now we have not been here before so to be honest I had no idea where was good/bad/indifferent. There weren't many family rooms at the bigger White Beach, so we ended up choosing Bulabog Beach. We found a real nice placed called Karuna Suites, Boracay. A seriously nice place, 2 bedroom and bathrooms, living and dining area, kitchen and a monster balcony. This place was ...

Smoke Restaurant, Boracay

Smoke Restaurant, Boracay Smoke Restaurant, Boracay came as a  recommendation for us when we asked where to get some good local food. And they were sure not wrong as this was a great place.

Buko, on Boracay

Buko, on Boracay What is Buko and what us Buko , on Boracay? Well it is basically fresh coconut. Literally plucked from the tree and then hack up to leave it open at one end and flat on the other.

Now those coconuts don't look ...

It was packed to the rafters, apart from a full 6 seater table becoming free right at the front in the open air. Yep I'll have that thanks! It was clearly fate - and I am ...

Britain’s got talent?

Britain's got talent? Not the usual post from The Semi-Naked Chef - no food or restaurant in menton here, but as I was in Boracay, Philippines when the kids did this I thought it would be OK. Britain's got talent, The Voice of the Philippines, X-Factor eat your hearts out - I think my kids are way better. So here is my Amy in Boracay chilling out and singing. And here is my Baby Jude - started off with Let it Go, and then competing with the live singer next door. So there you have it ...
