I'm leaving on a jet plane...

Well, today is the day, my friends. I fly home to the Philippines for the next two weeks. The country of my birth. As you read this, I'm preparing the last few things to pack in my big @$$ luggage, at the airport, or already on the plane heading towards the other side of the pacific. (Depending when you read this, of course) It'll be a LONG flight and I don't usually sleep on planes. It's that or a very very shallow sleep. Eek!! I arrive in Manila early in the morning, so...yeah...the adventure begins right when I get off that plane, get that stamp on my passport and step outside those automatic doors of Ninoy Aquino International Airport having the humid air engulfing me from minute one. 

I just hope there aren't any crying babies or annoying children near me during the flight. As much as I love kids and babies on a long journey like this, it's never fun. I'm excited to see my family and to get to spend some quality time with them. To return to the sights, sounds, smells that I remember from when I was barely a child. It always feels like no time has passed since my last trip there. It, 's as if it was just the next day.


Of course, there will lots and lots of food.

 Street Foods (some guys enjoying some BBQ on a stick)

 Soups and other delicacies

Fresh off the tree fruits

Desserts (Halo-Halo)

One of the the reasons we're traveling there is to attend a fiesta in my mom's hometown in the province. Imagine the feast for that!! Some of the things Filipinos know how to do well is cook, eat, drink and have a good time. I, for sure, will have some really great goodies to share like the many eats I'll be having at my cousin's little restaurant ('Comodor'). Sharing meals with loved ones with endless talk and laughter. And with views like this....


and this...


...who wouldn't want to go there. 

I'll still be around. I'll be posting little updates. Blogging when I have some downtime. Though, when you're with family...there's never any downtime, right? hahaha... I'll still be tweeting and facebooking, too.

I shall miss you all for these next two weeks. Advance apologies for me being M.I.A. It'll go by really fast and I intend to enjoy every minute to the fullest.  :)

Note: all photos in this post were taken from my previous trip in 2008.
