Starfish Island, Palawan - Philippines

Another leg of our vacation/birthday celebration I planned a Honda Bay Tour, since my goal is to finish all the 13 island. For my second visit, we went to Starfish Island and Pandan Island. Since our trip was cut short due to change of schedule we had only 2 island stops. But still, we enjoyed the 2 island.....a lot! *big grin*

By this time, from light brown color I think my skin turned super tan. Since we were always out when we were staying in Dos Palmas the previous day, but this is just the way I like my skin :D. Pinay na pinay pero singkit :P.

Starfish Island is near Pambato Reef, aroud 20-30min boat ride from the dock at Lourdes Pier. The island is a bit small, and there were a lot of mangroves on the middle of the island same as that of Luli island. According to our boat men, there are saltwater crocodile (but very small) on some of the mangroves there. Which stopped us from walking near the mangroves (very sad i wanted to see a live tamilok).

Welcome to Starfish Island. With our handy photographer tripod and
wireless trigger. :)

From the name of the island you'd know what's abundant in the area. So there we were after taking some snapshot like were doing a pre-nup (but there's no plan so whatever your thinking its not it!), we decided to buckle up our life vest secure our goggles and head off to the sea to see some live starfishes. And damn we forgot to put sun block againnnnn :'(. We might turn charcoal this time. haha.

ohh this is my banner photo... hehehe. Using my iphone's panorama

My Birthday at Dos Palmas, Palawan

For my 24th birthday I chose Palawan of all places I could go to celebrate it. Accompanied by codename Vic we spent 3 days and 2 nights there. Dos Palmas Resort and Spa is a one hour boat ride from Puerto Princesa's Lourdes Port. Only 100 guests are allowed on the island.
