On Saturday March 3rd we began our journey from the Philippines to Singapore. This is the moment that ended our nursing school careers for now at least (until we move to Singapore to take our masters)!! We were so excited to be done with school and move onto the fun vacation part of our trip away from home. We woke up very early (lets just take note that we maybe had two hours of sleep the night before as we went out with all our amazing Filipino students); like 4am and got our bags together and headed off to the airport. So we got there got in line to check in and then when we got there weighted our bags. Mine was a tad over so I took out a pair of shoes and sent my suitcase off. Then suddenly they were all like ‘oh and we must weigh your carry ons as it has to be under 7 kgs’. At this point I was like for serious – as I stuffed so much into my carry on so I would not have to pay weight on my suitcase! So carry on weighted in at about 2 kgs less than my large suitcase. They are like it must be less!! So at this point Sharaya and I were both like serious you send away our luggage and now tell us our bags are to much so we should probably check the carry ons too . . . umm no thank you!!! So I start taking stuff out of my carryon to make it weight less and holding it as that was apparently okay. Both of us visibly unimpressed and being very short with the people they let us walk away with half our belongings in hand and our carry ons rolling on behind us! Silly as it is the exact same weights whether we are carrying it or have it in our bags. Silly silly. Anyways we were tired and that did not help us one bit – so therefore we became annoyed!! Ugh silly airlines and their silly rules 🙂
So anyways after that we went on to Manila – and lets just say that is the most unorganized international airport I have ever been to but nevertheless we made it through and onto our Jetstar Asia Flight to SINGAPORE.
Here is a quick vlog on our first day!! We loved it hah and may have been tired but still were sure to enjoy the day 🙂
