Flying to Cebu for One Peso

Could it be true? Fly from Dumaguete to Cebu for only one peso?

Well, yes and no. Yes because the Cebu Pacific ticket on sale was really only ONE SHINY PESO! But no, because there were taxes to be paid amounting to 18.50 pesos therefore the actual amount that I paid was 19.50 pesos. Wheehaaa!! It will take quite a while for me to get over that!

So yesterday, this here below is the plane with propellers that flew us to Mactan International Airport in just 30 minutes from the Sibulan Airport.






This is the interior of the plane, two seats on each side, and absolutely no luggage/bags/whatever allowed under the seats. Everything had to be stowed away in the overhead bins. This being a small plane, they had to be very particular about total weight therefore they had to weigh us all, luggage AND passenger, upon check-in. It was my first time to be weighed at an airport!



(This is my seatmate, a balikbayan from somewhere. My bad that I didn't ask her permission if I could take a pic of the plane with her in the frame. Sorry po...)

And this here is our flight crew: Flight attendant Grace, First Officer Rosario (wootwoot! a female co-pilot!! hats off to you ma'am!) and Captain Kimura.



It was a very good flight and I recommend that if you like traveling sign up for low fare alerts from cebupacificair.com.

P.S. In case you don't have anybody to fetch you from the Mactan International Airport, do not worry. There are two kinds of taxis available right outside the exit doors of the MIA. There are fixed rate taxis that will take you to Cebu City for 390.00 pesos and then there are metered taxis that will turn on their meters once your ride begins.

I took the metered taxi and it cost me 290.00 pesos to get to my destination. Not too bad, I think, considering how convenient everything had been so far. And besides, there were no jeepney or pedicab alternatives, anyway.

Overall assessment: It's the Way to go! Watch out for the next plane ticket sale! :-D

Monica Cadiente

A couple of weeks ago, I left my Smart cellphone in the pool shower room (amf!). Almost in a panic and with a sinking sensation in the pit of my stomach, I dialed my Smart number hoping against hope that whoever found it would have it in her (I left it in the female shower room) heart to answer.

Lo and behold, after several rings, a young voice answered. "Miss," she said, "I found your phone in the pool shower room and brought it with me because there was nobody else there na!" Her name was Monica Cadiente, a sophomore accounting student from St. Paul University in Dumaguete. Wow, oh, wow!

To make a long story short, I was reunited the next day with my precious Smart phone and had the pleasure of meeting Monica and her mom who came to visit her from their hometown in Manjuyod.

Truely, honesty and kind hearts still abound in Dumaguete! I am one lucky resident of this place. Thank you, Monica and thank you, Mrs. Cadiente, for raising such an upstanding young woman. To the sisters and teachers of St. Paul's Dumaguete, you do our city proud. :-) !!!

March!


Gosh, is it March already??? And even that is about to end.


Been here and there and back again.

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Am back!

From nowhere, really. Just have been preoccupied with stuff and stuff and have sort of forgotten that I actually have a blog!!

It's been a month that I've not been here. Huwaaw.

So what's been happening this past month?

My laptop is ok now, except that they forgot to reinstall Photoshoppe and my printer. It sounds such an easy problem but really, for me, it's not. ::Sigh.::

And what else? Oh, I don't know if it's advancing age or it's the pool water, but I had little warts growing on my face. Thankfully, my dear cousin Beryl Munoz is a dermatologist and zapped the nasty warts away. Thanks, Beye!

Plus an important thing I learned: when a woman reaches the age of forty, it's important to put moisturizers on her face each night. Yey!

La di dah...

Top Less

I've been Top-Less for more than a week now.

Well, actually that should be LapTop-Less for more than a week now because I left my computer at the computer shop Wednesday last week yet, on the morning before we left for Manila. But incredibly, until today, more than a week later, my laptop is still not fixed yet. Grrr.

So I'm just posting from the kids' computer, which is not very conducive to writing because they're always breathing down my neck, waiting for me to go get up and let them do their facebook and gaming stuff.

So I'll be off now. Ciao!
