Free Airfare, Free Lodging, Free Chow... Lucky Me!!!


I thank Philippine Airlines and Mabuhay Miles for coming up with the Great Miles Getaway promo. I will be visiting again the very beautiful province of Palawan for the weekend. I exchanged my 5,000 reward miles for a free roundtrip ticket in Mabuhay (Business) class. Without the promo you need 10,000 reward miles for the roundtrip ticket. I only paid for the fuel surcharge and government taxes amounting to 2,324 pesos.

Am I blessed or just lucky because I will be staying with my friend who is a resident of Puerto Princesa. No need to fetch me at the airport as her house is just less than 1 km. from the airport. The last time I'm in Palawan my friend even lend her car and toured me and my sister around.

The fun of free stuffs didn't stopped there. She told me that she will prepare a picnic basket and we will go to one of the islands in Honda Bay for the day.

Hi! My name is Project 71. Weird name I know, but my masters are weird too. My masters apologize for such an out-of-context comment and they know how painful such spamlike comments are. But, say masters, how else are we to present something good to the world. By that they mean me :D. Kindly see what I am about. Won't take you more than 22s to read... http://www.project71.com/readme Enjoyy!

just a question, carlo: did you still take anti-malaria prophylaxis medication for your trip to Palawan? We usually advise students traveling to Palawan or other malaria-endemic provinces to take something before and after travel to such areas. Hope your MD was able to advise you on such matters, given the frequency of your travels. safe, uneventful journeys to you!
