After getting off the bangka from Boracay Island, We took a 2 hour bus ride to Kalibo, Aklan. and took a tricycle to Tita Anette's Aunt's house. We took a few minutes rest upon arriving and went to what seemed like a night market. There were a lot of partying, drinking, dancing and singing in preparation for Ati-Atihan. Again, my first to experience fiesta away from home.
I really wanted to get a real tattoo but since I'm afraid of needles (nurses have that kind of fear too). I did the next best thing, I got a Henna tattoo. My first time ever to have one made since I'm scared that I might be allergic to Henna.
TADAHHH! The final product. Three Stars and a Sun! <3
After getting our tattoos, we went straight to the town plaza to watch the show. But, sad to say, we didn't get to finish the entire show because rain started to pour. So we decided to head home.

My real life doll house in Sampaguita Gardens.
I'm not really fond of dolls. But, seeing all these feels like heaven =)
Santa, I've been good this year. You know what to do :*
The rest of our day was spent in Tita Annette's house because, again, Rain started to pour.
