Some very good news from Asian Spirit

I'm not really into plugging stuff (though I work in the advertising industry myself) but this one seems too good to be true -- my Asian Spirit Multiply contact told me that one-way fares for Manila to Masco and vice versa are now at a low P3,500. Really too good to be true but apparently true.

I can't wait to find a sked and the budget to go back. Need to honor my promise to Lola Fiorestida that i will give her the Reader's Digest issue (Nov. 2006) where she got featured. Also my promise to an Ivatan friend that i will go back and visit again. Besides, I miss the homey atmosphere of Tito Shane and Tita Del's inn fringeing Basco Bay. (Image of Basco lighthouse from my Batanes 06 archive) 

PS:  bai Ferdz aka Ironwulf noted it and I also got word that the reduced fare is indeed part of the Travel Expo happening at SM Mall of Asia for a very limited period. Sigh! Anyway, if you have the money and the time to go there this weekend, try to grab those limited seats before they're gone. Believe me, the last time around, it took only a day before they were all snapped up.

I think, this is a promo that runs in duration with the Travel Mart Expo happening at MOA and fares will resume after if I'm not mistaken. Kaya bili na! Hehe

anonymous, thanks for dropping by. i thought so, too but special offer lang ito. i knew it was too good to be true :-P

you're right about the gear save for the d80. i already sold it because i don't need a second body (i shoot with a d200 na :-D)

hi sidney! thanks! it's an old favorite of mine from my batanes 06 trip. figured it would be nice to dig it up anew.

ay di pala ako naka-login :(

so D200 ka na pala...di ko na afford yan :(

lagal[og] said...

tutubi, ikaw pala yan. was guessing who wrote the earlier comment. anyway, just got lucky with the d200. i really wasn't set to upgrade yet but the opportunity was too good to pass up. naku, it's not the camera per se but the photographer that matters :-)

nice shot! luv it! and i love the allure of lighthouses - always always with an air of mystery. you never quite know what lurks inside its walls... and what stories it could tell. lovely!

lagal[og] said...

thanks anonymous! i share the feeling -- lighthouses are like magnets to me. oh, the stories they can tell if only they can speak

estan said...

okay na price na sana yan kaso limited time lang pala. na miss ko na batanes. i also stayed at shanedels and really liked the tatus and flying fish dishes :-)

lagal[og] said...

onga bai. kala ko nga wow, makakabalik nako. with the way the fares are going, baka matagalan pa bago ako makabalik. you stayed din pala sa shanedel's. ang bait ng pamilyang iyon. last time we were there, we got invited pa to the community gettogether like we were part of the family.
