You can just imagine how excited I was when I got an invite to attend the launching of the MV Starlite held in Batangas Port. The day was extremely rainy and I was literally drenched that morning in Tiendesitas where we had our meet up. I was wearing a black dress because I wanna feel like I’m attending a party on a luxury cruise. It was so uncomfortable that I keep on tugging the hem of my dress in a futile attempt to look a bit covered up.

We were all so thrilled we were given free tickets back and forth going to Boracay! I plan to travel alone and experience Boracay riding on a ferry. I can just imagine I’d be dizzy as hell.
