What I Wore Today: Malasimbo Music Festival Part I
After a two hour road trip from Manila to the Batangas Pier, we were finally on our way to the island of Mindoro for the Malasimbo Music Festival:
I have only been to Puerto Galera (in Mindoro) twice, this trip being the second. The first time I went was more for jetski training for our Boracay marathon rather than a vacation. We stayed two nights in a hotel on White Beach and I swore never to return. White Beach resembles more of a marketplace rather than a paradise for relaxation.
When I heard that the Malasimbo Music Festival was going to be held in Puerto Galera, I contacted my "local" friend and surfed the internet for alternative accomodations. There was no way in hell I was spending another night on White Beach again! Then I discovered Aninuan Beach which is on the other side of the island...perfect!
After an hour long boat ride, we finally arrived on the shore of Tamaraw Beach Resort. We had our own private little cottage right on the beach!
Aaaah, time for some relaxation...now this is what I call paradise! White sands, warm rays of the sun on my face, the sound of the waves, sand between my toes, and a cold glass of mango shake in my hands...Finally, some peace and quiet. Unlike the bustling metropolis that is now White Beach, Aninuan is a quiet little haven with a tiny population. Most of the people staying in our resort were foreigners mostly from Holland and France. The sand was fine and the water was cool, bright and extremely clear and clean. I am a sucker for Galera once again and I vow to return in a month or two.
