despite previous pronouncements that i will never ride cebupac again, i find myself for the third time in this terminal. my luggage took a different plane from mine the first time i rode cebupac. so i wasnt thrilled at all to find myself here again. but with all that hoopla over pal labor unrest, i have no other choice.
the terminal could have been fine really. with a bit of glamming up, it could have been enough for foreign visitors to be satisfied, not to be impressed, though. but because it now belongs to budget airlines, i see...
... 70% in flipflops, beachwear
... fun but noisy barkadas all around (ang saya saya!)
... all kinds of handcarry bags (sm, sando plastics, manila envelopes)
... buses that load passengers tothe aircraft
things ive started to look forward to
. illy coffee & their uber-nice packaging of mineral water
. cute hunky guys in tank tops
. nice shops of everything
. that guard at the baggage xray check with glasses and biceps
one major complaint: they have got to improve the audio for announcements. i could barely hear boarding announcements.
