Hello I’m back!
I’m in Japan. We decided to spend the Christmas holidays here.
I have this fear of December because it goes so fast. The traffic is horrendous. You’re under so much pressure to finish your shopping and gift list. You spend so much money. So much work piles up. You get so tired. Seriously tired. And you do everything to make the kids happy, to make sure they have a nice memory of it.
And so we went to Japan.
I had a chance to pack only a few hours before we left for the airport so I overpacked and I left some important things behind.
We flew via Delta. At first we booked JAL, but I made an error booking online that could not be fixed online. So I called Customer Service and spoke to rude (not nice) Japanese man, which shocks me every time it happens because I expect all Japanese to be polite (unlike in HK where it’s kind of expected—sorry but true).
So luckily I was able to cancel JAL and get a refund (rude guy helped me) and booked Delta.
Why do we love Delta? Because the staff is always nice to us.
During our flight my son Ben lost his glasses. We tried everything to search for it. Three Delta staff practically dismanteled the seat and couldn’t find it. We prayed to St. Anthony. Nothing.
On our way out, I thanked the flight attendant who assisted us. I forgot to ask his name, but my son Chris took a video. This is why we fly Delta.
Most of us didn’t eat during the flight because the kids always look forward to eating at Narita.
This is their favorite thing which they look forward to.
So after passing Immigration and Customs, we went up the 3rd floor of Narita (bags and all) to eat McDonald’s.
My son Ben was feeling antsy without his glasses, but I know Japan had many quickie eyeglass shops, so I trusted God to help us. Look what we saw right next to McDonald’s!
They had really great frames too!
Best of all, the glasses would be ready after 20 minutes!! This man was so nice.
We ended up paying half of what we normally pay in Manila.
Note: We are planning to buy more glasses tomorrow in Osaka. The kids go through them like tissues!
So a bad thing turned into a good thing. God is really good.
