The Minions, after quiet busy shooting their last film decided to take a break in Coron and just see the sights and unwind. It was quiet an experience for them. For the first time, they’ve been to a salty hot spring in Maquinit, although not all went to swim but they enjoyed walking across the wooden footbridge between mangrove trees.

At Siete Pecados Marine Park, they were in awe at the stunning coral gardens and strange and different kinds of fishes as they snorkel around one of the islets. Breathtaking they said in glee.

But nothing prepared them with Kayangan Lake. After having lunch of crabs and grilled fish, the climb up was nothing to prepare them at the pristine waters and stunning cliffs. They just stopped in amazement at one end if the wooden boardwalk.

And after all these, they just lounged and lazed around the white sand beach of Club Paradise Palawan, the best resort in Coron located in Dimakya Island.

The Minions were confused. some wanted to take the plunge into the hot salty water in Maquinit Hot Springs while the others were having second thoughts.

It was time to sleep but when the Minions saw the towel animals on the bed, they just have to play with these!

The next day, the sun was shining, the sky was blue that the Minions laid down the Matador pocket towel, anchored it with clips and just sun bathed.

    Given their bare heads (except for the minion with little tufts of hair and those with center parted strings), I hope you gave them a generous coating of sunblock before you let them out to have their fun in the sun ;).
