Philippines pt. 1 - The Journey and Manila

31st October, it was finally the day I flew off to paradise; the Philippines.
Prior to this, it required a ton of preparation. A lot of it was organised by my relatives and my mum, kudos to them. So all I needed to do was make sure I had everything packed and ready. Luckily, I live pretty near to Heathrow airport so it only took us a good fifteen minutes to drive there. Our flight was at 8 pm but seeing as this was my first holiday without my parents, I wanted to make sure I had enough time to check in and go through all the necessary security checks. So I left at around 4! Let me tell you that was the best decision I've ever made. 
Upon arriving to Heathrow, the 'digital' way to check-in wouldn't work. There was something wrong with the system which then required us to check in the manual (normal) way. Not long after I queued up to check in, a bunch of other people joined the queue. Actually there was a bit of conflict whilst we were there, someone missed their flight due to how long it took to queue and the failure of the electronics. Learning lesson for everyone, always check-in early enough to avoid rush and panic. Soon after we had plenty of time to roam around the airport and even eat. So whilst waiting Eric and I stayed at 'Eat' to watch a bit of Prison Break (Bringing an iPad or tablet with downloaded film comes in so handy at times like this), and just browsed around whatever shops were there.

Date Night: Bibigo

Hello you guys! It has been a very long time. I will be providing you with long overdue updates on what's been happening recently. First, food!
November 29th 2014 was my first date with my boyfriend. We organised it beforehand, the cliche dinner and then cinema. He booked reservations (brownie points!) for 6:30pm which we luckily made  as he was late, to be fair it wasn't his fault. Also, we didn't know where the place was so he had to whip out his google maps and it took a good few minutes for us to realise we were going the wrong way. I wasn't aware of where he was taking me as it was a surprise but I did know it was Korean restaurant. After 10 minutes of trying to find the place, we were finally seated at Bibigo.
