We had a hard time finding a cab, good thing we meet early. The long wait is over, at last we found a cab. The twist is, we can't have our conversation because the cab driver is having a lecture about his religion which is Jehovah's Witnesses. Honestly, I'm not in the mood to listen to him due to my head hurts. l sleep late due to the scrapbook. Trazy was also in a bad mood since she want to take a nap, she came from a night shift schedule. We feel sleepy and hungry. As a good citizens and being polite, we tried to listen despite of our complaints. Haha! After a long drive, finally we arrive at the airport.

Second Stop
After arriving at the airport, we decided to have our brunch first, late breakfast and early lunch. Schen and Yanne arrive early and eat first. When we meet them, they almost done. We have tasted the Clubhouse, pricey but delicious. In the end, we did not order the clubhouse. Haha!

Third Stop
At Skyjet Airlines counter, time to check in.

Since we are early, we decided to stay here and take some photos.

We heard that our flight will be delayed. That's why we stayed here and did not go to the boarding area. They decided to buy coffee. When they came back, Yanne and I went out to buy snack.
While we are sitting calmly and eating pricey Boy Bawang, we heard our names. OMG! Last call! Haha!

Good Morning Coron! 🌞
Again, thank you Lord for a beautiful weather. Last day of our vacation. How sad! Since it's our last day, let's make the most of it.
Actually it's just 1day extension of our original plan of 4-day vacation but due to our travel agent got our flight today instead of yesterday, well we can't do about it and since no additional payment, we grabbed it.
Today, no free breakfast so we go out to look for a place to eat and again we continue the souvenir hunting.

Welcome back to Manila!
Such a wonderful Coron experience.
We're back to the reality meaning back to work!

OMG! Almost 4hrs from airport to Gateway. I feel tired and hungry. We only had our lunch which is the snack in the plane. Abril need to go home already since she had a commitment to attend to, while Trazy and I eat first in foodcourt before going to work and home respectively. Schen & Yanne have different route from us.

End of story!
