This year I chose to celebrate my birthday with the two most important men in the world, my husband and our son, not in Cagayan de Oro City but in Metro Manila. Actually, I booked our round trip flights to Manila and back in September last year when Cebu Pacific had their Piso Fare. Thanks to budget airlines for the promo, the only irony with promo tickets is that they are non-refundable and non rebookable. Hubby and I have wasted two international promo tickets before. I was pregnant then and cannot travel back then.
I thought our tickets will go to waste again, because our little one had high fever because of swollen gums 3 days before our flight. Thankfully on the 3rd day Xye had recovered and was energetic again and ready to take his first plane ride the following day.
We boarded Cebu Pacific 8:40 AM flight from Cagayan de Oro City to Manila. I took the window seat, Xye in the middle and hubby by the aisle, also with us our best friend Jefer and his sister Ina.
The little one preferred to sit on my lap and peeped out the window. I think he enjoyed watching the clouds outside, but later on he went to play in his dreamland because he fell asleep and woke up when we landed at Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Xye first flying experience was fun, I think. I do not know if he’ll remember the experience when he grow up. Thanks to technology at least he’ll be able to see these pictures in the future.
P.S. Photos in this post were taken by my husband.
