Boracay, Philippines

This is what we thought NZ would be like: a paradise cocooned in emerald green waters, a haven for nature enthusiasts and spent city dwellers looking for rejuvenation.

Oh well. Whenever i wonder what happened, i look at this picture, taken by photographer Bobby Wong Jr. of Postcards from Manila of a very well known and much loved island back in the Philippines and tell myself no two paradises are alike.
