Stephen, my parents and I finally made our arrival to Manila after a 30 hour flight which started in Newark, through Anchorage and Tapei. When we arrived, my mom's sister Malou, brother Ferdie and brother-in-law Louie picked us up at Ninoy Aquino International Airport. They needed 2 of the drivers and 3 cars to transfer our 10 luggages and boxes. It was so great to see my aunt and Uncle after many years and as we met outside the 34 C weather and humidity felt so so good!
We headed to Ayala Alabang Village in Metro Manila where my aunt lives. Here we were welcomed by my Lola, cousins and a feast of filipino food!!! After unpacking and giving out our gifts for some family members, we ended up relaxing and planning out the first week here in the Philippines.
Stephen and I will be heading out to the white-sanded beach known as Boracay Island. We plan to relax there for the next 4 days until my sister, brother and two cousins arrive. Tonight we headed to Resort World Casino, where we stayed out till 4:00 AM!
