Boracay Island

Let’s do some flashback.

Three years ago, my highschool friends and I went to the Beach Capital of the Philippines–Boracay. It is one of the world’s top destinations for relaxation. It is also emerging among the top destinations for tranquility and nightlife.

Etymology by wikipedia:

The name Boracay is attributed to different origins. One story says that it is derived from the local word “borac” which means white cotton with characteristics close to the color and texture of Boracay’s white sugary and powdery sand. Another credits the name to local words “bora,” meaning bubbles, and “bocay,” meaning white. Yet another version dating back to the Spanish era says the name is derived from “sagay,” the word for a shell, and “boray,” the word for seed.
