Everyone must probably have their own collection. Mine grew as I traveled around during the past 3 years. I chose to collect Starbucks City Tumblers because they were usable, at the same time they can be good souvenirs. So, everyone, meet my growing tumbler collection… 🙂

I was able to try this new service of Cebu Pacific Air when I flew to Hong Kong last weekend. Because our flight was so early, at 5:25am, I opted to try this web check-in thing to buy some time, instead of going to the airport 2-3 hours early. So what is it about this new feature that made me try it? Here are some info and FAQs:

Being born and raised in the Philippines, a tropical country which boasts of great beaches and good scenery, it would be a shame if I would not explore my own native country. In fact, my family has always loved to go to other places whenever there’s an opportunity for us to have a vacation.  Be it a short drive to our provinces, Batangas and Laguna for a resort or beach trip, or long drives to Baguio or Ilocos with family friends and other relatives.
