A Chance Passenger

I called the airline yesterday to inquire about the ticket I won last month. The condition they have written on the certificate was a bit confusing like for example “WE CAN MAKE RESERVATION FOR YOU IF THE BOOKING SITUATION ON THE FLIGHTS GIVES US THE POSSIBILITY TO BOOK YOU. PER FLIGHT THERE IS ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF SEATS FOR WINNER TICKETS.” In short, para pala ako nitong chance passenger. Tapos hindi rin ako pwedeng lumipad during embargo time. Ang labo naman…kailan ko pala ito pwedeng gamitin? Kaya napagpasyahan kong tawagan kahapon ang kanilang office para linawin ito. Well, it comes out na hindi naman pala ganon kahigpit like it was written on the certificate. The lady was even so kind and asked me right away kong kailan ko gustong lumipad. Tinanong ko muna kong magkano ang ticket para dito sa anak kong makulit. They charge ā‚¬ 335.00 + tax for a two years old child and ā‚¬ 60.00 if below that age. Gillian will turn 2 this coming Feb. 3 so naisipan kong itanong if there is an avalailable flight between January 25 – Feb. 2. Siyempre naman I have to grab the opportunity na makakamura. Para may additional pocket money ako na pang liwaliw doon. I have to wait for Mrs. Kailani’s return call today.

Dios meh…excited na ako. Ngayon pa man, iniisip ko na kong ano ang gagawin ko doon. Ha! When I arrive there…I have to call Philosophy immediately for an appointment. Want to have that complete wellness program I had last time for my body and soul relaxation (say). Then magpagawa ako ng black and white portrait kay Lito Sy (bago tuluyang malanta itong aking kapangitan). I also have to see Juliet Pamintuan (my couterier) para magpatahi ng gowns for the upcoming Galas here. Wanted to go to my favorite Sushi Bar din para kumain ng sangkatutak na Sushi. Ouch! Kailangan ko rin palang mag inquire if my hubby can possibly practise his profession doon bilang isang manggagamot. Saang department kaya ako pupunta? Yan ang dapat kong alamin. I called the embassy already regarding this matter but no hint. Anyway, I have 4 weeks time to accomplish this mission. Itong asawa ko nga naman, lagi akong binibigyan ng mission tuwing uwi ko.

Haay, bago ko ituloy itong aking mga panaginip kailangan ko pang umalis para magpagwa ng passport ni Gillian. Kaya…

Ciao na lang muna.
