I think this was the first flight I didn’t have to hold my sister’s hand during a flight.

Take note: decent food does not exist in NAIA, not even at the Singapore Airlines lounge.
I wonder who is in charge. So nakakahiya.
Here are a couple of things you can make baon if traveling from the Philippines.
1) Teddy Grahams
2) Aljuron banana chips. Baon is a must.
While waiting at the lounge I noticed my mom’s new nail polish.
I was so amused, my mom decided to show my dad. She said, “Manny, look at my nail polish o.”
To which my dad answered, “P*tang ina!” (I swear the whole lounge heard it.)
My mom was startled so she pulled her hand back immediately and broke a glass. Award!
Good thing they didn’t charge us. Hehe.
My sister and I have different taste in color. Note her colors and my neutrals.
Note my airplane attire
Our hotel is not the Four Seasons, but it’s OK and location is good.
I just don’t get why Beyoncé is on our headboard.
The banyo is OK, but it tends to get flooded—hmmmp.
Are you following the Strauss-Khan sex scandal?
Some people believe the International Monetary Fund chief was framed, while others say he has a track record of being a “seducer”.
I’ll say this much: for an old guy he’s not bad looking ha. Kailangan ba talagang mag rape ng chamber maid?
I’m highly amused by The Sims-like animation of what supposedly occurred in the New York Sofitel hotel room where Strauss-Khan was staying.
P.S. Look at his jail cell. Mas madumi pa sa banyo ng NAIA.
The second video shows the chamber maid now as a dark woman.
Pardon me for being so amused. More please!
The day before our flight, a Cathay Pacific plane coming from HK-Jakarta made an emergency landing after one of its engines caught fire 20 minutes after takeoff.
In this video, the pilot makes a speech to his grateful passengers after safely landing the plane back in Hong Kong.
What people don’t know is that barely two weeks ago, our friend, a Cathay Pacific flight attendant was on a flight from HK-San Francisco when one of its engines caught fire two hours after takeoff. The passengers were told it was engine trouble. They had to dump the fuel before safely landing back in Hong Kong.
The incident never made it to the news.
Knowing those two had just happened, I was happy to be flying Singapore Airlines, because they say airline accidents happen in threes.
Remember A380′s triple whammy last year?
Being the most fearful flyer you ever knew, I had to psyche myself not to be afraid this trip. I took 1/4 tranquilizer 30 minutes before boarding. I started to pray the rosary on the plane and closed my eyes, meditated, and thought about really beautiful things, I can’t tell you. It felt like I was in touch with God.
After what felt like 15 minutes, I opened my eyes to see if we had already taken off as I was deep in thought. I was surprised to find out we were already one hour into the flight. It was amazing.
I slept the rest of what turned out to be one of the smoothest flights I have ever taken.
Took this photo of our near-empty sections just as we were about to land.
I am very grateful.
I’m here for family and kinda annoyed there’s no wifi in the room—maybe tomorrow they will fix it.
Well at least the Internet speed is pretty decent.
Back in Manila, the first thing I did was to check the banyo at NAIA.
I found this sign next to the loo I usually use.
Looks promising? I thought this restroom would have been renovated by now.
But the only thing they did was to repair “her” dress. Siguro dahil Fashion Weak.
“Oh, and the guy has LEGS now!”—Ana
Some of the tiles were slightly altered, este painted!
After: (Oh, and the pipes were painted too!)
Well at least they had toilet paper
and no smell. So it looks like the budget for renovation was Ajax cleanser, white paint and green Pentel pen.
I wonder when this restroom is really going to be fixed.
Nakakatakot, come to think of it.
