I havent been to Ilocos, i wanted to see Vigan. She has been there, but i think she wouldnt mind going back.
So ayun, i booked :)
Promo as it is, i still paid P2000 for our roundtrip fare. Arggh..ang mahal na!
Tapos i sent the eticket to mom :)
Then she replied that we are going to eat Lapaz batchoy.
Lapaz? Aww...i booked iloilo pala! hahaha
Guimaras is an hour away from Iloilo, Bacolod is also an hour away. So i wasnt too sad about mistakenly booking Iloilo instead of Laoag.
But mom wouldnt ride a ferry!
Okay, we'll just go to church and eat batchoy in Ilocos :)
Call me an inconsiderate daughter having to make my mom leave Cavite at 230AM for our 4:40Am flight.
This was such a nice view from the plane i enjoyed for several minutes.
Its so different landing in Iloilo, hindi puro yero ang makikita..green everywhere :)
Their airport was nice too
A day before our departure, mom called Sarabia Manor hotel to reserve.
I was surprised they were so kind to waive the early checkin, i was expecting we be charged half rate.
We checked in at 7AM, our deluxe room at P2,000
By the way, outside the airport, there are public vans that will take you to SM Iloilo for P50, its around 45minutes ride. From SM Iloilo we took a cab to Sarabia (~P70)
Since we lack sleep, we slept till 11AM!
We didnt have anything planned for this trip kasi ayaw mastress ni Mami. Gusto nya magrelax-relax lang daw.
From Sarabia Manor, we went to Robinson's mall because that is where we can get a jeep to Miagao Church.
Lunch at Deco's
Few meters away from Robinson's is the Super Terminal.
The jeepneys there are pimped out. I forgot to take a photo :(
The ride was 45minutes long and we paid ~P50 each. Punuan to the max! Walang nagagalit kasi tigil ng tigil, unlike dito sa cavite.. hehehe
We got to Miagao Church at around 1PM.
Sarado and it wont open till 4PM for mass. Huh? We dont want to wait, so sa labas nalang nagpapicture
Dont mention it, i know ang taba ko ngayon
After a few minutes we headed back to Iloilo City, and attended mass at Jaro Cathedral.
Then slept early.
Woke up. Buffet breakfast at the hotel. Waited until 12noon till we check out.
Then SM iloilo, yehey! Hahaha, seriously i was happy to be in SM!
Namili ng maramng butterscotch to take home. Had i known it was soo good, i would have bought more.
From SM iloilo, meron van to airport.
Up in the air on our way to Manila, nakakatakot kasi andami thunderstorm.
Kung gaano kapeaceful ang view ko papunta, ganun ka disturbing pabalik.
The closest thunderstorm show i have seen. Arrgh!
We didnt have anyone pick us at the airport. It was only 8PM, i know mom and I can manage.
We rode a metered taxi to Baclaran (~P180). Should have taken the airport shuttle bus i saw, dadaan din pala dun. P15 lang ata.
Kung gaano karelax kami sa Iloilo, stressed pauwi. Nakatayo kami ni Madir sa bus hanggang Bacoor :D
This was a happy get together with mom.
I like doing this, i am reminded of how much i miss her.
Mami, next year san tayo?
