Anyway, if you've been following me on Twitter, this might be old news to you!
I'm going back to visit the Motherland (Philippines) this Christmas. It was so unexpected and last minute that the fam just decided to go like few days ago. So you know what that means, extremely expensive plane tickets!! I hatee traveling during peak season for that reason!
I mean I've been wanting to go for awhile, but not really at this timing since the economy is down in the dumps right now, but we have to since my gramps is really sick. He's been in the hospital for sometime now, and my Lola (grandma) had asked us if we can spend the holidays over there ... just in case *knocks on wood*. But it's been two years since I was last there, and I can't wait to see my old childhood friends and of course the fam bams and spend REAL Christmas (unlike here in the States where it's just not the same, with or without snow).
Anyway, as of right now my flight from LAX to Manila is on December 21st. The date might change by Monday though. I'll be there until December 29th. I'll be hitting up Manila for sure and it's not complete without doing so.
So anyway, for my Filipino(a) readers, what do you think I should pick up while I'm there, makeup wise? What stores to go to, spots to hit up, and places to eat? Nightlife? Shopping? I've been to Club Jaipur, and it seems like a popular spot for people from the States vacationing for the holidays. It feels like home!
Even though we're going home for a sad reason, I'm actually pretty stoked that I'm going to visit home again. And for the Filipino(a) readers, I would love to meet ya'll. So let me know if any of you are interested in having a Pow Wow there :D! Might be a tad difficult though, but we'll work something out!
