Some artists (like : Quentin musset )have already placed their artwork around the place . Like painted and decorated lanterns !!!
Movie watching experience , over all interesting !!! pillows were soft and comfortable , projector did its job , maybe it was a bit quiet with occasional tricycle sounds loud , when they pass by on the main road , , but you hear movie and it does have subtitles . When I was there it was quiet , only few people .. But I think it will get busier .. Anyways .. I had a good time .. And u ?

If you think that your house is in danger ... Then you have to find a local shelter - the closest one .
Stay high up the grounds and if you need , then move EARLY to the shelter , do not wait.
Make sure that there is no debris around the house ( so if the winds are strong it would not fly ) and check for paths to be free in case of really strongs floods ..

= Balabal national high school and elementary school ,

Incredible event in Boracay gym last night . I arrived at 7m just when it was about to start . Sat in front of the training area and just absorbed the surrounding !
Everyone was training and getting ready for the fight , some were standing on the side of the ring supporting their friends, some just having a beer on the side of the cage . Place was full with people ... Foreigners and locals .. Even children squeezing in front of other against the cage to get a glimpse on first fight ...
First time i visited this place i amazed with the peace-full Aura in there . Its incredibly calm setting.
Buildings are made from light brown bamboos with little paths of grass growing around, boxing kit stored all around the place . Some punching bags hanging on top of the dark blue maths . And residents of the room upstairs chilling in their the hammocks.Cosy corner in the shade .Few sun spells are breaking thought bamboos and shine on them .
This setting makes you feel energised, inspired and ready to train , while over looking Boracay.
Its the best afternoon you could have . Almost end of the day ...
