close call of a different kind...

so I had to catch an 8AM flight this morning back to Taiwan... which means I have to be at the Airport by 6AM... need to leave the house by a little after 5AM... which means getting up at 4:30AM to get ready... This all means I would need to get to bed at a decent hour and setting the alarm to wake me up -- even cut short Ace's graduation dinner so I can get home to sleep.... So I did the latter -- then how come I almost missed my flight?

Well, I must have been even more tired than I thought - I actually did my biggest fear of all - I slept through the alarm... good thing I had another one set from way back when - and it still goes off every morning at the same time... 6AM! the time am supposed to get to the airport... anyway, took a TAXI bribed him extra to rush me to the airport...

Got there at 7AM, Manila Traffic is always the shits, as they were taking down the Taipei sign down at the check in counters... begged to be admitted and I was... and I had 20 mins to pay the airport tax, go through IMMIGRATION & SECURITY CHECK.... and go directly to board my flight... WHEW!!!
since am writing this BLOG here in Taiwan - I did make it back... but that is the last time I will ever want to cut it that close when flying... the stress is not worth it at all... just so not me.... am chucking this all to Philippine Airlines - for having a weird sched... yeah, that's right, I already do not like them - I might as well put the blame on them here, too.... NOW I FEEL BETTER.... hahahhahaha

On that note, I bid you all GOOD NITE or GOOD MORNING - depends where you are in this beautiful world of ours! HAPPY FRIDAY and a GREAT WEEKEND to you all!!!

Oy!! As if the travel back and forth each month isn't stressful enough all on it's own... to nearly miss your flight had to have been awful!
Glad you are home safe and sound, Rudi! I hope you get to relax this weekend.
