Marble Island, Romblon

We got to Romblon very early in the morning on the 30th of December.

Romblon Bayview – 6 room hotel

Standard Room – 650 pesos per room per night (10 euro )
Family Room – 750 pesos per room per night (12 euro)
(I do not know why it is called a family room, there is only 1 bed)
No restaurant facilities but they can make you coffe in the morning which is the most important thing for me.
Bed could use upgrading (I could feel the springs)
Recommended for short stay

Chamban Beach (I am not sure of the spelling)
Day trip entrance fee 35pesos (0.55 euro)

I have been tagged by a friend from Greece Sha

5 weird things about me:

1) My bedroom is always dark. I seldom turn on the lights.
2) When I am depressed, I sit on the bathroom floor — I can stay there for hours.
3) I eat chicharon dipped in vinegar (with garlic and chili) with rice.
4) I curl my toes when I am making a decision or thinking of solutions to problems
5) When I am angry, I stamp my foot like a kid. I did not realize this until my husband and his friends told me about this just a month ago.

The Slave Ship

We left Zambales on December 28 and stayed one night in Manila. We took the boat from Batangas to Romblon the following day. What a ride! Our guests decided to take the non-aircon area and so we all decided to stick together. Bad idea with 3 kids!





The boat does not have security on the sides. A child could easily fall off aboard or an adult for that matter. It was really warm and very uncomfortable.And yes, I saw some baby cockroaches. I hardly had any rest the whole trip.

Boats from Batangas to Romblon – Daily /Manila to Romblon – Once a week (Mondays, I think)

ANYWAY, I FORGOT ALL THE DISCOMFORT I HAD IN THIS 12 HOUR TRIP WHEN WE GOT THERE. ROMBLON, THE MARBLE ISLAND OF THE PHILIPPINES, IS BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN AND FRIENDLY.
