Family and friends, I am pleading with you to stop referring our beloved Boracay as "Bora". I am also appealing to the Philippine President Benigno Aquino III, to my dismay, called Boracay, Bora. Now this may sound like a lesson in geography.
When you say "Bora", you are actually referring to an island in French Polynesia called Bora Bora. Once you talk to a foreigner and say Bora, sadly Bora Bora will come to his mind right away, not our Boracay. I am also curious so I did a little research and I am sharing photos of how Bora Bora looks like.
Well, we have our own beautiful island called Boracay.
|Boracay has the famous grotto.|
|Boracay's white sand is the finest there is.|
|Sunset in Boracay is one of the most beautiful thing on earth.|
My name is Irma, and I feel bad or sometimes horrified when other people would refer to me as Erma or worse called me Irene. I have a beautiful name and I wish people would stick with that. I know Boracay feels the same way. Its name is distinct so why don't we all use it, right?
It's not as hard as you think.... BORA...CAY! See!
