First day in Philippine - 30 May 2012

After so long,here I am again talking about my side of travel junkie.Like usual,no tour,just go. Only this time I'm not alone, Shirley is with me. At the moment, I just done with my shower and sitting on the bed of Belfranlt Hotel located at General Luna Road, 2600 Baguio City, Philippines P1650 (RM119.30) divide by two of us is only P825 (RM59.65) I only can access the wifi at the lobby so I was composing this post earlier before get it publish.

Thanks to mom for sending us up to Terminal 2 airport. With flight of AK6264 via AirAsia, Shirley and I depart from Kota Kinabalu (BKI) around 1350 hours and reach Diosdado Macapagal International Airport at Clark Field, Pampanga for the first time. Upon arriving, we have to fill in the Disembarkation card and customs declaration. Remember to ready your passport and the form that you just fill in to the custom officer. Line up, wait for your turn and always stand behind the yellow lines. These process apply in any airport I have been. As we walk out the airport, we head to take a jeepney but in our pocket the smallest note we have was P500 (RM36.15) conversion of our last money changer rate as P100=RM7.23. So we decided to look for a shop where we could get a smal change. We went to the nearest 7 eleven and buy our first grocery. I bought 1 mineral water 500ml cost P13 (RM0.94), Chicken Embutido P15 (RM1.08) and 90ml Dove Shampoo P67 (RM4.84) which total of P95 (RM6.87) only. We meet a lady name Hanni and guide us way to the bus terminal. Took a jeepney with P8 (RM0.58) to Clark terminal and transfer to another jeepney P8 (RM0.58) up to Angeles City near Mabalacat Terminal known as Dau Terminal. We bought the Smart Prepaid sim pack at Jumbo mall P40 (RM2.90) and load another P100 (RM7.23). While waiting for the bus to Baguio City, I went to the comfort room obviously look like public toilet. To enter you have to pay P5 (RM0.36). You might be a little surprise with the toilet design. The door and the wall are only the height from my foot up to my waist only. Around 7pm, we took the Dagupan Bus to Baguio P356 (RM25.74) and bought the Pork snack P35 (RM2.53) known as Pork Chicaron for our long journey. Arrived Baguio about 12am and again I went to the comfort room but with normal saiz of the toilet P5 (RM0.36). Someone help us send up to the hotel where I should have just walk but it's ok to pay his warm help. P50 (RM3.62). So total spent for Clark-Angeles-Tarlac-Baguio is only P2352 (RM170.05) Now I need to get my sleep. Blogging using iphone apps.
