Another treasured memory for me in 2010 was the series of unfortunate events that happened to me in the remaining days of 2010. Yes. December was a bit cruel for me. Cruel with a twist. I like twists. I like the surprise and uncertainties of it.
I went to Manila to do some business thingy but I don’t want to talk about it since it didn’t really go well on my part. Goodluck to them anyways. No hard feelings.
I went to Manila via AirPhilExpress and unfortunate event no. 1, we got stucked midair for almost 1 hour. NAIA 3 is congestive and we can’t land. So we just keep on circling and hey.. I even lectured a kid beside me about the different types of clouds. Or it was the other way around. I told the kid that cloud is called “Strauss” and he replied.. “Stratus”.. whoa! Strauss.. what am I thinking?
Next unfortunate event is I actually don’t have a ticket back to Catarman. I supposed to have a Dec. 23 ticket back to Catarman from Cebu Pacific but they didn’t confirm to me that it was actually an expired booking and I can’t use it anymore. They keep me waited and waited and I found out about it days before my flight back home. I decided to opt for a bus ride but my siblings does not like the idea of riding bus back to Catarman so they purchased me a plane ticket which I will be paying them in installment. And that leads to Series of Unfortunate Event no. 3.
The 3rd Unfortunate event is the Cancellation of our flight. (im sounding religious now). And it aint funny for its Christmas season. We are originally scheduled for a Dec. 23 flight but due to technical problems we got moved to Dec. 24 which happens to be my sister’s birthday. We were sent to Century Park Hotel. We feast on great foods but was not really enjoying the night. The place is a bit creepy. Next day was horrible..
The 4th Unfortunate Event is the Cancellation of our Flight AGAIN! Yes. Our Dec. 24 flight got cancelled and was moved to Dec. 25. Yeah. It’s insane. That is the reason why all of us are traveling back home to spend Christmas with our loved ones. The craziest part of it is when AirPhil Express keeps on giving us excuses and made us waited in the airport. They are indecisive and do not have a concrete explanation. We were placed in Trader’s Hotel but our first request was Marriot but according to them it’s fully booked. We have no choice but to enjoy the night… And we did… I did… I eat a lot!
The next day was the ultimate unfortunate event but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
