Journey to Manila was a BLESSING

It was by faith my dear. You know what?? Ok!!! The first thing before flight!! Only one guy will be following which initially suppose be two guy as they are so called bodyguard!! Gosh!!! One of my sister fren cant join us "guy". Alright thats fine, we can handle it. Three days before going, we did Devine Mercy for protection, guidance, weather, health and many more. It was Awesome!!! Me, mummy and both sisters joined even though Vannesssa was in KK during that time. Well, it is a basic preparation before Travel. Come before the Lord, offer our life to Him for His guidance and protection. Do trust in Him and He'll hear your prayer. 

On that day itself 2nd August, one of our friend called and said that she missed her flight from Sandakan!!! Then, her new flight gonna be ten minute before our flight!! Gosh!!! What can I say about it!!! Insane!!! At the eleventh hour!!! You gotta be kidding me!! She was the one who knew and arranged the transportation when we reached there as she has already settled with the tour city. Haha.. Funny is it?? I was worried indeed! We dont even know where is the hotel that we are going to stay. Only the name!! San Lorenzo!! Who the hell knew it?? Trolllll... Everybody was worried however there is a line that always sing in my mind "God will make a way when there is seems to be no way."

In the airport, i were google ing all the hotel near Makati, as my fren, Vicky suggested to shop at greenbelt in Makati. Thank God!! However, as i google, i couldnt find any hotel! Trolol... If people asked about our Destination, i'll just answer Makati, if they ask which part of Makati then i'll say Makati again, near greenbelt though. Nice answer yea.. Who the hell care. The moment that six of us waiting for were finally arrived!! Around 2:++pm, we arrived Clark, airport!! Yihooo... Finally baby!! Clark air is different from Kk, obviously. Lol.. Everybody was so excited! As we carried our luggage.. oh!!! Transportation man!! As Vicky and some of my friend told me that as I came out from the airport, there is a bus counter. Oh!! Thank God!!! We bought for six people, 400 peso/head. Done!! The moment we went out near the taxi driver, we saw a guy holding a paper with our friend name on it. Oh no!!! We bought the ticket already~ after we discussed about it, i went back to the bus counter asking if the tickets refundable, however, they said cant but can be used for coming bek to airport on Sunday. :'( Ohhh... while my sister went asking the guy with our fren named. Suddenly I felt someone pulled me from the counter¡¡¡¡ I thought he is a handsome however he is actually she, my own sister... Cehh... She said we just follow the bus, and she asked me to run toward the bus Asap as she explained to me about the guy told her that the name on that paper is from blablabla.. Cant be trusted. So we decided to follow the bus. The end.

Yeay!!! Entered the bus and sit for awhile. Gosh!!!! Where are the location of the bus is heading to?? I mean exact location, we knew Makati, but which part?? Near our hotel?? San Lorenzo?? Or what?? Oh no¡¡¡ By our faith, we surrendered everything to almighty decision, You guide us Lord. We offer up our journey to You, show us the path. Ok, rilax in the bus, long journey!!! Almost four hours!! Manila... JAM!! like crazy!! People here and there kept on honk to each other and the distance between the two buses equal to your wrist!! As if you can open the window and slap the next bus' passanger. Can you imagine¿¿ Near is it¿¿ Unbelievable yet true, sorry, this ismy first time going out from Malaysia "culture shocked" but not Sabah. ;-p. Pheeeewwwww... Long journey! I wanna go pee... However, the bus' toilet fragrant!! wow!!! #puke. So, I just endevour myself to stand. Baboy!! Wait k Val. Alrite, "Makati is here" one of the girl screamed. Oh... Finally!! I need to find toilet :-) The moment we went out from the bus~ Where are we????? FEel LOST!!!! FOREVER LOST!!! I mean for few second due to the highway we were standing. No bustop there!!! I mean Makati pit stop!!! Lol.. Luckily i know how to speak tagalog a bit! I learnt from the book. Then, we asked about Hotel nearby, overall, 5 stars hotel, out of our expectation dude! Then went to ascott Hotel, still couldnt find any. For twenty minutes looking around.for hotel but couldnt find. Hey!!!! I wanna pee..Feel like wanna explode¡ My oufit for that day totally wrong!! I know I do look gorgeous with mini skirt, however they said, for first day, it is better to look simple. Argghh... Whatever. Luckily stop near pizza huts just for the toilet. Phewww... Much more better!! :-) Praise God!! mum came out with a brilliant idea which was by asking the taxi driver "Raymund the good looking taxi driver and he is young" the 4stars hotel nearby, he brought us to full house hotel and the 2nd hotel was L&B suite due to lack of hotel that he knows... The funny thing here!! I bought the cheap pork bun which actually need to be microwaved!! However I was hungry and kept on munching it without seeing the label, then end up with puke all the food I ate previously. ;p LEARNT A LESSON!! 

Ok! Done!! Praise God for sending a good man to us even though syendee and litto shared front seat together. Troll! Raymund thank you!!

The stuff inside are cheap!!! We did our shopping and shooting., it was enjoyable. Great time together, we just knew that inside greenhill, there was a chapel with every hour mass!! Wow.. Cool is it!! The building itself unique!! Then, we called Allen as it is emergency, the tour guide, due to we need to get out of that place and see other places, places of interest or another shopping complex. Wahahaa... Then allen told me that he'll send joenelle instead of himself, then the white hyundai, van shown up and wow!!! The handsome man came out to invite us to his van. Comfy van ;-) i did really shy to talk but still asked a lot of questions. Then, yea... We pass all Makati places, still remembered all the places we passed on the way to greenhill~ Hee... As you know, the big wind as the tail of typhoon still there, big wind!!! you can see the trees went here and there. He told us that the day before we came, there were a big wind near the seaside of Manila.
