Cancelled Flight

What will you do if you get this message:

Few months ago, I was happy when I learned that Cebu Pacific finally placed a direct flight to Surigao from Manila.  It would surely give convenience and choice to travelers like me who shudder long trips.  But when your pre-booked direct flight is cancelled and you are given a connecting flight like this:

you don't have any choice but to take it especially when you bought it on promo.  The good thing in it, however, is that you will be given the privilege to change your flight date without paying for the rebooking fee and other applicable charges.  That's what I did.  I moved my flight schedule to a later date to accommodate an unforseen commitment.

But then, the fact remains that I still have to bear with more than an hour of waiting at Mactan Airport.  Well, what exactly happened during my recent trip was far from boring.  I traveled with my family.  And we met my brother and his family at Mactan Airport.  Hence, one hour stay in Cebu was not enough.  To cut it short, we were not able to keep track of the time and before we knew it, we were on our way to Surigao.

I could say, some inconveniences are indeed just blessings in disguise...

Fire in Surigao City

When I arrived home late last Saturday night, my mama greeted me with the news that part of P. Reyes St. was on fire.  My sister, who got the feed from Facebook, announced that the fire started in (or somewhere near?) RSY Bldg.  I wonder, where is RSY Bldg. located?  Though it sounds familiar, I just can't seem to remember it.  Memory gap... :)

Anyway, I hope I can stroll around the city later, take pictures of the ruins, and post it in this blog.  :)
