Gayon Bicol!

Yup Ate Charo, barely 4 months from my prior vacation (Jul-Aug 2013), naswertehang makauwi ulit sa Pinas ng Disyembre. Second Paskong Pinas & New Year’s in a row, woot! Maraming salamat sa Cebu Pac promo fare (DXB-MNL-DXB) & Emirates (BAH-DXB-BAH)  :)

We agreed to spend Christmas in my hometown – Malasiqui, Pangasinan while New Year’s in Buboy’s place – Viga, Catanduanes. Hindi pa ako nakakarating sa Region 5 Ate Charo. Therefore, yalla sa Bicol!🙂

Gayon Bicol!

    question: pano ung set up ng ganitong flight? Cebu Pac (DXB-MNL-DXB) & Emirates (BAH-DXB-BAH) 🙂. plan to do the same kasi sana for my vacay. pano ung transit and arrangement. TIA.🙂

    • Hello Karen, thanks for dropping by. Actually nagbook ako ulit para sa uwi ko sa Nov 2014-Jan 2015 vacation ko.

      I booked Fly Dubai BAH-DXB-BAH. Then CebuPac DXB-MNL-DXB

      They are 2 separate flight bookings, so kung may bagahe ka, kukunin mo sa carousel sa Dubai then need mo i-check-in ulit for next flight. I only bring carry-on bag kaya I skip this part hehe.

      Sa transit, be sure you have at least 2-3 hours in between flights para di ka gipit sa boarding time.

      Example, BAH-DXB I arrive 8pm. Then DXB-MNL departs 1030pm. 2.5hrs transit time sa Dubai Airport. Ganun din pag pabalik. MNL-DXB. transit time sa Dubai. then DXB-BAH.

      Happy travels!🙂
