Let's All Say BORACAY, Not Bora

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.

Beautiful, right?

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!
