After the very long journey, from Solo – Jakarta – Singapore – Manila, finally we arrived in the Philippines. Honestly, there are many stories also on the way to go to Philippines but I will save it later for the next post. Ok back to Manila, around 7.30, Dian, my friend from Sebelas Maret University, and I then had a short goodbye with the others before leaving the airport. Then, we met Alex, the Dean’s secretary of Saint Mary’s University. At the first time, Alex was confused where we were. She and Sir Bonnie went to Terminal 2 while Dian and I were in Terminal 1.
So, they said that it was needed around 6 to 7 hours to arrive in Manila. I was so glad at that time since I was sooooo tired and I thought it was needed 9 to 10 hours to arrive in Bayombong. For your information, this is the first time I went abroad. It became the longest trip in my life so far.
We took our breakfast in the nearest fast food in Manila at that time. After that we visit the place (I do not know the name) to meet the brothers and father.
Surprisingly, the brothers are both from Indonesia and Alex even do not know about that. They asked us for breakfast but you know we already had that. By the way, that’s still in Manila.
The father was from Brazil however, I don’t even know the name heheheheh.
Yeah of course it’s really a pleasure for me and also Dian since we did not expect to meet Indonesian people in the Philippines.
Right after that, we go to Bayombong.
Talking about the capital city of Philippine, Jakarta is way more crowded. But I found unique things here for the transportation. They call it Jeep and Tricycle. Indonesia only have Pedicap, Tricycle is similar but not that similar I think. For this post, I will skip the photo of Tricycle and Jeep because I haven’t taken a photo of them heheh.
There are three students going to Bayombong. Dian, Nam (Thailand) and I. We were so tired so that we were sleeping almost along the way. At 7 P.M. finally we arrived at Bayombong.
The first time that came into mind after seeing my dorm was I want to sleep right now. However, Mr. Moises one of our coordinators asked us for dinner. On that day, I ate three times L. I was not supposed to eat that much.
After that, we went back to the dorm and slept.
