Farewell Taipei

Our flight was very early- 0700 and we have to leave our hotel by 5am at least. Everything was packed the night before and I had trouble sleeping since I think I was very very very excited...finally after 1 whole long month I will get to see and be together with the people that matter to me the most.

We have received a phone call saying that our ride was already down at the hotel lobby and ready to bring us to Taoyuan Airport. It is quite a stretch...around 30-45 minutes drive from our hotel.

Luggage: Check
Hand carry: Check
Valuables: Check
Team Manila: Check
Plane Ticket: Check

We arrived at the airport and I was praying really really hard that I don't exceed the 20kgs baggage allowance per person. My 2 luggage weigh around 23kgs...I said, "Crap..." good thing, my colleague's luggage weight was enough to help me with mine. Yehey...This is it!!!! Manila here we come.

My Taipei post is about to come to an end...just a few more :D

My supposedly "one" luggage, ended up 2 at the end of the trip. one on the left (smaller one) was what I originally brought. Shopaholic Monster overcame me and wasn't able to contain myself...result, I needed an extra and bigger luggage to fit everything.
Picture
My airport look...I have to wear everything that I can, "layering" is the key to help and avoid exceeding baggage allowance :D

Taoyuan Airport is still under renovation, but it already looks promising. Leftside you will computer stations with free internet use :D
Picture
...everyone woke up around 4am and no one had breakfast yet. After we have checked our baggage in, we had breakfast first.

I was really starving and forgot to take a shot of my meal first. I just realized after taking a very huge bite of my delicious ham, cheese, BLT croissant sandwich.

I think this is our plane, unloading passengers...
Picture
...just couple of minutes more and they should be calling all passengers to board the plane back to Manila.

(L-R) Me, Z and Myi

with Nikki...goofing around to pass time.
Picture
...Myi took this shot. On our schedule departure from Taipei, we heard that there was an incoming storm in Manila and weather in Taipei wasn't looking good either...just look at the swirl of dark nimbus clouds.
Picture
Our in-flight meal. It wasn't as delicious compared to the in-flight meal that we had from Manila to Taipei.
Picture
...and we are airborne. It is just 2 hour plane ride from Taipei to Manila. Listened to couple of Regine Velasquez songs and I was dozing off to slumberland... woke up a couple of minutes before we landed in Manila.
Picture
...Finally I am HOME. Yen and Milan greeting me on my arrival
Picture
and yes...the famous banner posted into my bedroom. I was really surprised about this. Apparently I am now a OFW. :D I salute every OFW for being away from their love ones for so long, compared to me I just stayed on a foreign land for a month and I already had a couple of breakdowns.

It was such a wonderful experience...being in Taipei for 1 month, meeting wonderful people and yes, who could ever forget my SHOPPING RENDEZVOUS. It was so amazing and would never ever forget this little adventure of mine.

Just one more post...:D

I will see you guys real soon.
