Before I left for Philadelphia, I made a stopover at our first home together. We stayed here for maybe half a year before moving to Antipolo. It brought goosebumps knowing we will be back here again soon.
Housewarming to come.
Now I am in Philly, and stayed at a hotel for a night before going to the Retreat Center later. It’s nice to be messy sometimes, especially in my room:
All these hotels have free wifi, and not only hotels! I just LOVE the fact that they have wifi on airplanes too, now.
I didn’t get to use it, because I was fearing for my life through the turbulent skies. But it is still great how technology is keeping us connected, even in the air.
PS. Did you hear about the Google Car? You don’t even need to drive!
I officially hate flying now.
I don’t know what is in the air between the Philippines and Japan, but the plane always bounces during that leg! And today, it was the worse I’ve ever experienced. Out of the almost 4 hours, maybe 2 and half were in turbulence.
And turbulence is putting it mildly. How about shaking, bouncing, weird noises sounding…. aaagh. I literally buried my face in my pillow and hid under the blanket so the flight attendants wouldn’t see the fear on my face.
Plane rides are different from boat and land rides. For the latter, you know you can jump out and do something. On a plane, well, where will you go if you could jump out? Maybe this is the fault of LOST or all those AIRPLANE disaster movies… but every small jerk of the plane makes me start thinking about reaching for that lifevest (though now I’d have to remember the dance moves of the FAs before I can put it on).
Thankfully, I am now on land. Enjoying free food and wifi before getting on another plane. And yet another before getting to where I am supposed to be. But these are the things we go through to be able to go to the places we need to be.
But please. Can someone invent a teleportation device already?
PS. Am I the only one on Facebook in this lounge? Maybe I should pretend I am working or something.
