Of all the suckiest things really is going on the first flight out in the morning. My host and travel dude, AZ, insisted that I also book the 4:25 am because that’s what he got and what everyone else got. He also mentioned the fact that if I book the 2nd flight that means they will have to wait around just for me and only me in Silay airport — appealing to my compassionate nature.
So siyempre bumigay ako and had to rebook my flight in order to torture my self and give in to the birthday boy’s (AZ) requests.
I am up and ready by 2:45 am. AZ and J (my nominee for selfie king of the Philippines — follow him on IG @jjabarcks … watchout James Franco) picks me up by 3:00 am and we are at the terminal bright and early at 3:30 am. Madami nang nauna sa amin for the flight in fairness. Buuuut, yun mga iba naming kasama na nagbook January pa lang at silang mga promotor ng 4.25am flight were still MIA at 3:45 am.
Lo and behold, 4:00 am hindi pa sila nakakaalis ng bahay. Ang saya saya…
Finally they arrive at the terminal at 4.20am… and the conclusion? Hint: I should have just booked the 2nd flight anyway.
Upside… nothing quite beats the colors of this sunrise from my window seat… silver linings and all that…:)
