One of the highlights of Star Cinema’s You’re My Boss starring Toni Gonzaga and Coco Martin is the feature of the beautiful island of Batanes. Wanting to go to there and the value of honesty became my main takeaway from the movie experience. I won’t forget how so many fellow moviegoers couldn’t help but blurt out how beautiful the shots of the place were. 😉 Some of the features included in the film that stood out for me are the Honesty Coffee Shop (Yes, believe it or not, there’s a cute cafe that implements an honesty-based payment scheme!), Sabtang island tour (boat ride!), the magnificent views from the elevated areas of the city, and beautiful churches like the Mt. Carmel Church which Toni’s and Coco’s characters visited. (Photos courtesy of Toni Gonzaga and Macy Dionido on Instagram)

If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, the place really looks like the perfect getaway from the city stress. As Pong (Coco Martin’s character) said in the film, “Ang Batanes ineexperience, hindi ginu-google.” 🙂
