Yes, I am officially going to Boracay!!!
SO excited; it’s my first time there! It really wasn’t in my plans to go anytime soon, but my sister’s spending the All Saints Day week there with my brother and their friends, and she invited me to stay with her for free at the hotel she booked. That’s one big expense down, at least.
I was initially dithering about booking my flights–they’re quite expensive since it’ll be peak season at that time. Then I promised myself that I would finalize everything by today. As my luck would have it, Cebu Pacific opened a Seat Sale just this morning, and that included flights from Manila to Caticlan. Binggo! I purchased a one way promo ticket from CebuPac then got the return flight via Airphil Express. It all amounted to P5,207.56, more than a thousand bucks cheaper than the flights I initially intended to get. It’s still more expensive than my booking to Cambodia, but that’s pretty good, considering that I got them kind of last minute.
After finalizing my bookings, I checked on the flights to Cebu for January. Some friends and I are planning on visiting my former colleagues there in time for the Sinulog Festival. That’ll be my first local festival so I’m looking forward to that. I was quite tempted to book for that, but I think I should give my credit card a breather for now. LOL.
I’m gonna have to start my local stories soon, starting with our stay in Coron, Palawan this past New Year’s. Just have to finish Korea first…
