If you are one of the multitude travelling home to the province for the holidays, you have to pack a lot of patience along with your luggage. As of today, the 20th of December until the rest of the holidays, NAIA 3 will see record numbers in terms of passengers flying out of the terminal. Travellers are going berzerk not just with the delays but also the switching of assigned gates which are a great inconvenience to the elderly who have to move the entire length of the airport.

Negros Island.  The SWEET Spot of the Philippines.

If there is any consolation at all, there is the free sauna experience (thanks to NAIA 3's aircon) and the occasional body-to-body massage reminiscent of MRT rides. Happy Holidays!
