My First Published Article

front cover of the 3rd issue of Manila Skies magazine

Spirit of Manila Airlines is a new budget airline currently operating at the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport that serves the following destinations as of January 2010 according to wikipedia: Bahrain, Kuwait, Macau and Taiwan.

Its official inflight magazine is called Manila Skies. An associate editor of Manila Skies contacted me if I want to contribute an article for the 3rd issue of their magazine. It would be my first time writing an article for a publication so accepted the offer in a jiffy. You may click THIS to read the full article I wrote about the Damnoen Saduak floating market near Bangkok, Thailand.

None of my friends knew about this airline and I can't blame them because I never saw even a newspaper advertisement. I just hope that Spirit of Manila Airlines would prosper just like the leading national budget carrier Cebu Pacific.

I'm Alive!

It's been months since my last post, no I am not dead, I just took a time off from blogging. Now I realized that I am ready to blog again. I'll try my best to inform you all again about travel promos, news and pretty much anything that has something to do about travel.

I decided to disable my "chat box" in my Blogger panel and I encourage anyone who would like to tell me anything to please leave your thoughts in the comment section of every blog post. It seems that many stumbled upon this blog when searching about airlines like Cebu Pacific, Zest Air and Philippine Airlines. I am really sorry if I can't answer your queries about the ticket prices in a particular destination on a particular date as I am also depending on the online booking facility of airlines for my trips. Ticket prices may change anytime so I have no way to guarantee you a particular amount on a particular date for different destinations. The best way for you to find out is to go to the official web site of the airline of your choice or call a travel agent whose telephone numbers you can find in the Yellow Pages. If there are promos/seat sale from airlines which I may find worth informing you as my reader then I will definitely blog it.

For my regular visitors I will try my best to visit your blogs and leave a comment so you will know that I am still alive, hehehe :)
