Crystal Kayak with Kuya Khane Casidsid of Puka Beach

When doing activities in Boracay, it would be more helpful for the locals to do it on the island of Puka since it is somehow a preserved area, and most of the goods and services there are from the locals and no commercial establishments.

When I set foot to the Puka Beach, bunch of kayak boat men came and offered their services. I requested, “Sino po yung pinakamagaling mag picture dito 😂”, they all pointed to Kuya Khane. Kuya Khane even told me to refund my money if I don’t like the pictures. And I was like, “Di mo naman siguro kasalanan kuya kung chaka ko sa picture, diba? ”

If you are the type who doesn’t know how to pose for pictures, no worries! Kuya Khane is there to guide you on what to do. I noticed Kuya Khane would at first make you do carefree poses.

Then the easy poses.

All the way to the uneasy poses. Forgive my baby belly fats.

He knows exactly where you would put your hands and legs to create the perfect angles. Even the tilt of your head. Or the direction of your hair.

Once your feet are up high, always, always remember to point your toes! Whatever happens, just point your toes!!

I remember this pose was very uncomfy, I could break my neck here if I stayed a sec longer. But I just trusted Kuya Khane and yeah I look happy and painless.

Ang affirmative din ni Kuya pag nag picture. Cocommend ka nya kung ok ung pose mo. Nakaka boost lang ng confidence haha. Mas lalo mo pa tuloy gagalingan ang pag pose hahahaha

Sobrang eager ni Kuya mag picture. Kasi siguro sobrang eager ko din mag pose?? So it’s a tie haha.

At dahil low-key Maritess ako chinika ko si kuya. Kwento nya, kinabukasan na daw graduation nya. Nag tatrabaho sya para sa school nya at doble kayod sya sa family nya kasi may baby na sya. Kakaproud yung mga ganun noh? How he hustles to win in this life. Can’t wait for your success Kuya Khane, whatever success means to you!!

Kuya Rey as our Bangkero

Kuya Rey was never chatty. Kinakausap ko sya tipid lang ng sagot hahahah. Baka introvert lang. O baka ayaw nya lang talaga ako kausap hahaha.

But I remember he told me they earn 500php per day for a day trip on an Island tour. Hati na silang dalawa ng kasama nya and one tour per day lang sila. So he could use some tipping.

Boracay Tour Guide Miles Brian 

When we went to Boracay, we just booked a ticket and a hotel, with no plans of doing anything. Is strolling on the beach walk from Station 1-3 sound like a plan? Not for the first-timers!! And so, we decided to hire a Boracay tour guide. His name is Miles.

We are a group of lazy a**es, but then Miles enchanted us to do the Island and Land Tour, all in one day! He knows where and when is the best time of which in Boracay.

The best thing about Miles is he is an Instagram Tour Guide!! Seriously, it is like having a long-lost local friend in Bora.

This is Crystal Cove and the view under the cave is sooo worth the long line waiting. There is a photographer to take a picture of you in this view.

Also, his MBTI is ENFP so he could go along with different types of personalities.

Same with Kuya Khane, Miles is also a student juggling his work as a tour guide and his church duties as an organist.

See positive reviews for Miles as Boracay Tour Guide 🙂
To those who were asking where did we stay in Boracay, we stayed in Microtel by Wyndham Boracay It was only 2,000 – 3,000 price range per night with breakfast. AND BEACHFRONT!! Maybe I could do a separate blog for the hotel, or maybe never!!! Sorry my ADHD is taking its toll on me. Umm, see you on my IG account? @travelberries_
