After nagging him almost every second of every day, Kap finally caved in & agreed to a one-time-big-time summer adventure for the GOppets. Yahoooo! \m/ Ate is, after all, graduating this year. Soon she’ll be so busy with med proper that now is really the perfect time. And it’s been so long since our grand trip that we really bamboozled him into the idea of taking time off for ONE WHOLE MONTH this 2016! It’s rock or bust, he had no choice but to go along, lol. I’m soooo excited I could burst!
But of course, he had conditions. And top of that list is CHEAP TRAVEL, CHEAP EATS, CHEAP ACCOMMODATION. Fml. So here we are at Travel Expo trying to find the best possible deal. The queue was one long block away! @_@ But fair is fair, I gotta give if I’m willing to take, right?
Kap & Ate dropped us off while they went to look for parking. Hello world. ;))
Citibank cardholders had free entrance. Otherwise, it’s 60 php/person to enter. Based on the number of participants, 60 pesos was peanuts.
Indoor situation. I wanted to go home badly after seeing this craziness, but Kap said it was deal or no deal, pera o bayong. I chose to stay & endure it just so we can travel. Gah!
Different agencies had different kinds of pakulo going on. TBH, pampa-sikip lang itong mga paro-parong bukid hehe! One’s pointed wing almost poked my eye. Ouch!
Cheap airfare. Of course every one wanted in on the deal. I couldn’t get an arm in. All 4 of us went our different ways trying to squeeze our way through.
Bumped into friendly neighbors Ana & Manuel Z.
and helpful neighbours too. Soooo grateful to tita Eleanor ‘Eli’ White! President of Swire Travel who assisted us herself, seeing how despondent & lost we looked amongst the huuuuge crowd. <3 SOLD na SOLD si Kap my Kap! ;))

Hay si donya. May kutson at back rest na, may taga-paypay pa! ;)) How lucky am I! Good job GOppets! <3
Freebies! For every 40k & above single transaction using your VISA citibank credit card, you get a Pacsafe anti-theft pouch. For every 5k, you get a dove gift pack. Lemme tell you, Kap went home VERY happy! ;)
Backpacking through Europe. How many cities do you think we can cover in a month??? Going through online visa applications now, NKKLK! @_@ Is there an easier way please?
Downside with our summer trip though is we have to leave our dear Lelly behind. :'( It won’t be the same with just the lowlas at home, nobody will play with her huhu. I’m really afraid that she might take off while we’re away to look for us. Any suggestions short of adopting another dog for companion? Poor Lelly! </3
PS: Last on Kap’s list of conditions is: NO SHOPPING. Hahahahahahaha. Yeah right, nananaginip ka ba, my Honey. Dream on. Of course there’s shopping! Are you kidding me??? :P
