10th Boracay Holy Week

Apr 27, 2011 by

The most sinful place on Earth during the holy week is Boracay. I have seen its sins. I have participated in some, but I’d like to call those swings as ‘coming-of-age.’ An excuse, really. My mom would berate me with words like ‘You Will All Be Punished’ in all variations had she known my dark deeds. But that’s exactly the reason why Boracay is so popular. It is a mini-universe where people have very random concept of time, and erratic gut needs, a home to gluttons and sloths, a limitless plethora of desires – just take your pick. Boracay has very little tolerance for the square pants where morals rule — they get evicted and swallowed by the seas of time. Those who remain are the indefatigable. The extreme believers of what they do. I belong there not because of my extreme love for freedom, but for the momentary disassociation from world order. In short, a brief immersion in the fantasy world.

Bound for Boracay for different reasons: to sell, to buy, to see celebrities, to splurge, to swim, to hustle, to have sex, to find their one true love.

At the BIGFISH event. Everyone seemed to be on a different kind of high: wearing shades in the hollow darkness.

Whether he was just drunk or really dead, no one cared. Dancing continued.

For all its worth, this is what I am here for.
