The Whitest Beach of Asia

Hosted by "A Southern Daydreamer"

Now that it's almost summer time, I can't help but long to lounge on the beaches of the Philippines. And if you have ever been to the Philippines, you'd know the first beach to try would be the Boracay Islands!

I'll let Yahoo Travel and Nomad4Ever tell you just how beautiful it is...

Yahoo Travel's 2007 World's Most Popular Beach

"Most people have heard of Boracay, which is sometimes called the “Whitest Beach of Asia” - and it’s true! If you thought so far, the beaches of Bali are nice, or Thailands beaches are white - you haven’t seen the real deal. I kid you not! Boracay has truly a powdery white sand, which is of no comparison to any other beach in Asia. Maybe the Maldives come close - but then, they are much more expensive, exclusive and you are basically locked on a tiny island for the time of your stay." (Nomad4ever dot com)

Are you ready to pack your bags? I am! (At least I wish I am...)

Thanks Susan for letting me go on a virtual beach tour of my beloved birth country.

TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain so misses the Philippines) Create a table using only colors of the country you wish to visit or have visited the most. Don't worry about the artwork or images that represent the country, but rather, focus on the colors... Let the food from that country shine when placed in in solid colors of its origin place in the world.


  1. Oh Chandy, those pictures are beautiful! Yep, I'd love to pack my bags. laurie

  2. Happy Outdoor Wednesday Chandy! Oh, my friend, I want to go....and with you! It would be so much fun to have you show me all the sights to see! It's too bad I have so many children in college right will be awhile before I could even think about going! It is gorgeous though! Thanks for sharing your photos.~ Susan

  3. Chandy,
    This is the 1st time I heard of Boracay. It looks beautiful. I have been to Phucket, Thailand (where the Tusnami hit) and it was breath taking. I love Asian so now can add this to my travel wish list!

  4. Chandy,
    I am ready to pack my bags, let's go girl! Such a beautiful beach. Cindy

  5. Oh Chandy, never been to Boracay. But I get to visit Camiguin Island (highschool field trip). They do have white sand there too (among other wonderful sceneries) :-)

    Also like the tablscaping idea. Colors and food reflecting the country. MMMmmmm would love to try the food LoL

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

    I never heard of Boracay, but it looks absolutely wonderful! Those beaches look sooo inviting.
    Thanks for sharing!

  15. Hi Chandy!
    I didn't even know about this fabulous place! There are so many wonderful places to visit and Boracay is just the tip of the iceberg! I'll have to google it and find out more about it.

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
