Let’s Cebu ourselves!
Got the statement from one of my colleagues. Like him, it’s my maiden voyage by air. Wala pong basagan ng trip! LOLz…There’s always a first for everyone. After all, this is my first opportunity to travel for pleasure. I’d say a treat for a job well done and a prelude to a year of travel and adventure–both geographic and gastronomic!
It was an eye opening week indeed. Last week, due to an unfortunate event, a colleague had to cancel his Davao trip. He was a disappointed and was mulling over the aborted adventure that we came looking for a diversion. It started with Cebu Pacific Air‘s P550 flight to the Queen City of the South. Him being there last year got the excitement back in his veins. We checked out flight availability but were given quite a few remarkable deals. The spirits were not dampened by the first hurdle. We huddled and discussed travel options. We searched other airlines for promotions and deals. It went hours that our work productivity was so minimal (sorry boss:our motto: may bukas pa).
After a so much research and quarrels, we arrived at a decision. We’re flying Airphilippines to Cebu on March 12 at 7:35 in the morning and heading back to Manila on a Monday morning, March 14 at 5:55. After all has been set, it was time to hit the reservation page and we ain’t got cash nor credit! A big blow on the group’s excitement. Anyway we called the airlines instead and work out a time sensitive (24 hour) reservation.
Raking the fund for the trip was another hurdle. It’s not like we were just paid yesterday! It was a disaster in the making. After a short disappointment, someone decided to lend his coffers contents to make the trip a reality.
The following day was a booking day! We got our e-tickets last Saturday before heading home for lunch.
