SE Asia Trip Series (Day 1): Manila to Clark + Air Asia flight


My 9-day journey with my 2 high school buddies started at the Philtranco Bus Station at SM Megamall. It was 7 o'clock in the morning of February 21st 2009. I was rushing to the bus because I was the last passenger to arrive. Gosh! I looked so hagarda. I didn't even had the time to put on a moisturizer because I didn't expect that the bus will come on time. (the last time I was there for my Macau trip, the bus came an hour late)

Philtranco bus fare: 300 per way

An hour and a half later, we were at the Diosdado Macapagal Airport.

Our bags - just as excited as their owners

Departure Area of DMIA

Boarding the Air Asia for the first time

Black leather seats

An hour later, the FAs were starting to serve the meals.

Nasi Lemak.

I pre-ordered this meal when I booked our tickets. It's a Malaysian national dish which is composed of rice cooked in coconut milk served with dried anchovies, egg, chilies (sambal) and peanuts.

Not my favorite. I just finished it off because I was starving and we still got 3 more hours before reaching KL.
