This post is part of a series on our trip to amazing Egypt in July 2014 during Eid Al Fitr holiday. Kaliwali kung mainit.  Slapped some suncream and walked like an Egyptian! 🙂


Good Morning from Fairmont Heliopolis! At dahil maagang natulog, maaga rin ang gising. Gora na agad kami mag-almusal bago i-explore ang hotel na itey na may giant chandeliers sa lobby. Ginalugad namin ang mga facilities nila until makarating kami sa pool side and health club, where we spent our remaining time before prepping up for our flight back to Bahreyn. 🙂

Asian mini-trip Series Part 8: Lantau Island – Ngong Ping Village & the Giant Buddha

This post is part of a series on our Asian mini-trip last December 2012, during my four-week home leave.After four amazing days in the Island Paradise, Boracay, we jumped on a bus to spend the night at Clark, Angeles City to catch our early morning flight commencing our 8-day trip around Singapore – Kuala Lumpur – Hong Kong and Macau. :)

Up in the Air with Cebu Pacific

On our trip to Boracay in December 2012, I actually booked return flights via Airphil Express. However, a few weeks later I realized that the trip back to Manila was too early (meaning we have to leave the island before sunrise and catch a van to Kalibo).

Kalibo-Manila Dec 14,2012

Kalibo-Manila Dec 14,2012

So I waited for another round of seat sales and fortunately, was able to book, this time with Cebu Pac, another pair of tix KLO-MNL for only Php 600/pax, going a day later and in the afternoon.

Meaning, nasulit namin last day sa Boracay and even had very ample time to stroll after hotel check out. There was no rush din to get to Kalibo Airport. Kaya ayos Cebu Pac, Salamat! 🙂
