I know I promised I'd try to write whilst out of town, but it's near impossible. When you wake up early enough to hit the sumptuous breakfast buffet spread, get tempted by the sweet crashing of the waves, and the allure of the infinity pool... ah, I can't get things done on holiday.

But, I'm back, rested and ready to rock 'n roll for the flurry of activities to come. In the meantime, I'm detoxing from my beach holiday and here's the first of the updates I promised!

For the first part of our trip, we got put up in a stunning Treehouse Villa at the incredible Shangri-La Boracay. We were just lapping up the luxury like kittens trying to get drunk on milk: from the private boat that took us right to the resort, to the two-floor villa with our own jacuzzi and butler and private beaches for our use. It was incredible. I don't know how we'd top this holiday, really.

Here's a quick tour of our villa:

Of course, with a place like that, all I wanted to do was fill up the jacuzzi and order room service and veg out. And we did.

Sunsets in the Shangri-La were absolutely stunning, especially when you're in the tub:

And then of course, there was frolicking and other water-related activities:

More photos to come. Watch this space, kitties.
