It was January 12, 2012 after seven years in Canada that I was able to visit the Philippines. We didn't get to prepare everything but it went well.
When we arrived to the airport, I was so shocked that the Ninoy Aquino International Airport was really a messed. I thought it was only a rumour that NAIA was the worst airport in the world.
We were about to exit the airport then there was a security guard who was asking for "Lagay". Sabi ko nalang, "sorry po, wala po eh".
After five minutes of waiting with our relatives to pick us up, I've had noticed that three young guys were looking at our luggages and one of them was hiding the pole. It triggered me that they were planning some stupid things on us. What my family and i did was we tried to protect our luggages by surrounding them. It was funny that they were still young but they had a gut to do it although there were plenty of authorities with automatic rifles in the area.
The trip in the Philippines was kind of short because i did not have plenty of time to travel around the Manila and even in Batangas. However, I've had a chance to catch up with my cousins, relatives in Manila and Bulacan. I've also had a chance to spend time with my elementary classmates and high school classmates in Bulacan and Batangas.
When you have a chance to visit the Philippines, do not forget to eat all kinds of food in there. After you try all kinds of food in the Philippines, you will always remember that the Philippines is all about food and fun.
