the return trip was quite uneventful. my niece, nicole, and i got the same seat numbers as what we got coming home. oh yeah, i just remembered, on our inbound trip to Cagayan de Oro, we reserved seats online (paid extra charge for that) but we learned that these were given to someone else when we arrived for check-in. my sis-in-law asked for a complaint form (but she never filled it in.. thought she'd rather avoid the hassle). hah, if that was me, i'd be all clackety-clack at the customer counter in a huff. i'm really disappointed with Cebupacific's service these days. it has lost its customer focus. in its bid to be number one, it is looking at the volume and number served and not the quality and delivery of service anymore.
well, as we were waiting to board at the airport lounge, my niece asked me, "aunty, do you think we'll be seeing that black dog again?" To which i replied, "Nah, fat chance of that happening again."
we got home slightly before nine in the evening because of the traffic. having foreseen we'd be stuck in traffic along makati/guadalupe route as it was still around 6:30pm when we got our luggages, we decided to eat at the airport before hailing a cab. we settled at the tables of Chubby China and what can i say, i felt replete with my dinner of Breaded Fish and Chopsuey. but their serving of chopsuey was rather small for me. would appreciate if they can add to the serving size.
we've lots of pasalubong. of course, mommy did not forget to pack us around three kilos of lechon and the food for the gods she hurriedly baked early that morning. we had cheding's, vjandep pastel, maestrado coffee and cocoa chips. ahhh, sarap! comfort food... tastes that bring us closer to home.
