Hundred Islands

       This is a throwback. I'm telling you now because you might be wondering why I look so young and thin in the photos. But this is one trip that is worth a hundred throwbacks.
       This was way back 2009 during our summer Alaminos, Pangasinan trip to the Hundred Islands. I was not so keen at first, it was just my co-worker who wants to go see these more than a hundred little islands but I'm sure glad we went there. It was a very lovely place. We went there for an overnight stay at some inexpensive hotel where we all just stayed in one room. We left Bulacan with our rented van at about 3 am and reached there at nearly 7 am. After our breakfast, we headed to the beach to take a whole day stroll at the waters to see the little islands and rented a small boat for about 2,000 Pesos. We already brought along food and water for lunch and snack, including our towels and a few things we might need.

We were able to land at the three developed islands there namely Governor Island - the photos where there are stairs, Children's Island - it was probably called children's because it was like a swimming pool for kids, the water is shallow at the middle of the sea plus the sand is so white, and lastly, the Quezon Island where I couldn't find any photo of us there. We were able to stop by at some very little island too for lunch because I can't possibly eat at the boat, I get dizzy. It was a cute white sand small island where there is a rock in the middle and then a small beach front with white sand.

This was the Governor Island where the peak led to a beautiful overlooking spot to see the spectacular view of more than a hundred islands.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the lovely beach!
