Home Sweet Home

Vacation officially starts last Sunday. It feels wonderful to finally see my family again after 2 long years. The flight to the Philippines was long, boring and very exhausting. I had to take 4 different planes, Chicago to Hongkong the longest and most turbulent. I've admitted in my previous post that I was a scared flyer. But being on 4 different planes for more than 24 hours made me less fearful and I have come to not over-react to the weird sounds that planes make and the unexplainable feeling that flying gave me. The scariest part for me is Take-off and Landing but I must say these are the most enjoyable experience anybody could have when flying. I hate turbulence the most. For me, I think it's the most uncomfortable feeling especially when you're in their very "bulilit" lavatory, lol! My butt hurt from sitting for long hours. I wasn't thrilled walking through the airports for the check-in process and gate transfers, but I haven't really had a hard time with it so it ain't that bad. Chicago airport is huge and confusing but so long as you pay attention to the airport signage and wayfinding systems, you'll be fine. Generally, it was a good experience and it was all worth it.

My family didn't get much sleep as well because of excitement and anticipation. You see, we were all excited, lol! I've always wanted to eat in Jollibee again so that's the first thing I did when I arrived. I had my much needed Jollibee fix on my first day. Yipeey!!! Even if I was exhausted, I didn't sleep that day. I tried to get my body adjusted to the new time zone. It was hard for the first 2 days. I'm very much fine right now though. I've been busy with the wedding preparation. It's taking so much of my time but this needs to be done so I can relax when Jeff gets here next month. So far so good...I'm enjoying Philippines!
