After months of preparation, today is the day that Franki, Ranah, and I voyaged to the Philippines to start our South East Asia adventure! The excitement didn’t hit me until I was on our first flight which also happened to be the longest flight I had ever experienced: 12 hours to be exact! At least I got to finally watch Finding Dory and met a kind Filipino couple sitting beside me.

We had an 8 hour layover in Shanghai, China where we mostly slept and looked through all the panda obsessed gift shops. Getting through Shanghai’s security took forever.

Our flight from Shanghai to Manila was another 4 hours. Once we touched down in the airport, we picked up our bags quickly and found Lhen (Franki’s friend who we were staying with). She lives in Makati (one of the nicer districts of Manila).
