A Quick Update On My First Two Days Here In The Philippines

by - Friday, July 10, 2009

I've been away from blogging for more than a week already and I am honestly missing it! How is everybody doing?

Me and my boyfriend left Sweden on the 1st of July. We did not have a direct flight to the Philippines simply because we can't afford it. So, our trip had two stop overs - Paris and Hong Kong (it had been Sweden - Paris - Hong Kong - Manila) - a total of 31 hours! I was too tired and exhausted but excited to meet my family again after two long years.

We arrived in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA3) ten minutes earlier (11:45PM of July 2). My mom and younger brother were already there waiting for us. The feeling of meeting them once again was awesome!

The following day, July 3 (Friday) has been dedicated as a whole day visit to the expanded and much improved SM North EDSA. I am so suprised on the renovations and widening done. The SM North EDSA Sky Garden which is located on the second floor is huge and really inviting. There are so many restaurants and food chains inside the Garden where you, your friends and family can sit down, dine and relax while enjoying the beauty of nature. The falls located in front of the mall also makes the area pleasing to the eyes.

That's it for now. I will be posting some more stories later when I am not too busy. As of the moment, my boyfriend and I are really enjoying visiting different malls here in the Metro Manila area. I promise to tell you more about my on going Philippine Vacation 2009. More photos to come!
