Alright, where do i begin heh...

Well it all started October 7th...

I left Atlanta once again, got on an airplane to San Fransisco CA. I sat next to this really old woman in a really small plane, agh it was horrid. 3 seats across, aisle then 3 more seats across. I was in the aisle but still, that old woman...agh it was no good. She kept asking me questions why i was going to San Fransisco heh.

Well anyways when i arrived in Cali i was shocked how small the airport was in comparison to the Atlanta airport, i mean i knew it was big but dang... it made san fran's look like a joke. However i still managed to get lost heh, of course. Finally i found where i was suppose to go. The plane had changed times of departure and arrival... I WAS PANICING i diddnt know if the people meeting up with me in philippines would know that times had changed or anything agh it was so troublesome, so the plane ended up leaving around 11 sanfransisco time, it was a much larger plane. Double decker. Lucky me though!!! In a plane full of filipinos, i get seated next to a redneck white guy... AGGH my luck is so bad. This guy was going over there to meet his mail order bride ugh, he wouldnt shutup it was annoying as hell, and i think all the flight attendants thought we were together... the guy was dumb as a rock...


Anyways, i arrived in manilla 14 hours later...
talk about some stress, first i had to walk down a hallway i thought would never end... sheesh. Finally it ended at some stairs, the IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ROOM!!!! I dont like immigration and customs.

So anyways, i went thru immigration like it was nothing, customs however.... wow. Talk about a corrupt system. Everybody was slipping money in their passport and handing it to the customs guy so that he wouldnt order people to search their bags, well me being dumb... i diddnt do that, and they searched thru my bags agh

So anyways, after that i went panic again looking for where to meet up with my party, i diddnt know if they were there, where they were, anything, agh so confusing i tell you. However anyways i did find them and we all got in a taxi, 'uncle of ces is a taxi driver so he was the one driving' So anyways we drove around, waiting for another person in our party ayesha, finally she met up with us. Anyways, we ate breakfast at mcdonalds, but oh no, they do not have sausage and egg bisquit, they have garlic rice and egg plate lol. Interesting eh? Mcdonalds in Philippines but diff food heh.

So i dont know if we were sight seeing or going somewhere or what but it seemed like we drove around for quite a while. Finally we went to the U.S. Embassy... oh yeah it was columbus day, the freaking embassy was closed... what ever happened to the movies where us citizens could run inside the embassy if they were in trouble? what if it was a holiday? the they are SCREWED! agh geez, so anyways we went to the airport and changed plane ticket to zamboanga to the next day so we could stop by the embassy the next day, register and all that jazz.

So we slept at ces uncles house that night, we had to sing kareoki first though :-P. It's a big thing down here to sing kareoki heh. Kinda fun if u ask me lol, next day we got to the embassy, more trouble so we just went to airport to fly to zamboanga, and what do u know!!! ONE OF THE ABU SAYOFF MUSLIM TERRORIST WIFE GETS ESCORTED BY LIKE 15 POLICE ONTO THE PLANE I'M GOING TO BE ON!!! Wtf i dont know, but that scared me shatless. We get on the plane and everybody pretends like it diddnt happen, like out of fear or something i have no idea, then the stewardess all pass our newspapers, guess who is on the front page? HER!!! Talking about how she was being deported to indonesia or something... but if she was being deported... why was she on plane to zamboanga? I still havent figured that one out... Anyways though that flight was fairly short, it was like 2 hours ish but it seemed like 20 minutes compared to my 14 hour flight i had the day b4.

So we arrived in zamboanga and the rest is for another post after i get comments on this one :-P

i may be a little late on this one, but why did you move to the phillipines? kind of seems like an odd move for a white guy from atlanta.
