Based on experience, most of the trips I’ve been to were products of spur-of-the-moment decisions a few months prior. My upcoming trip to Singapore in January 2014 isn’t any different.
My girlfriends and I were just talking about how great it would be to go out-of-the-country together— we first discussed Hong Kong then Singapore. A friend will be getting married in February, and we thought perhaps we could travel one last time before she ties the knot. Plus, another friend is based in Singapore so we won’t have to think about accommodation anymore.
Everything was all talk until the Seat Sale happened.
So there, three days after the discussion, we’re booked and good to go. (Three of us, at least.)
Funny story: I booked a ticket without even scheduling for a passport renewal. I only have Saturdays to do the thing, and for that, I needed to schedule it with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). So after booking my ticket, I visited the website and guess what? No available slots for November until January!
Then I backtracked a bit, and thank goodness I found one slot on the 26th. It’s a little too soon, but hey I’d rather sacrifice that weekend than have my airfare go to waste.
I can’t wait for January 17! We’ll be staying in Singapore for 3 days and 4 nights, and we’ll be returning to Manila a day before my 25th birthday. (Oh dear, quarter-of-a-century!)
The boyfriend isn’t going with us. I know I should get used to traveling without him, but argh, I don’t know! Anyway, let’s see if I can still convince him. :)
Sigh. Finally, there’s something to look forward to again. :)
