Summary of my ‘air’ travels in 2012

I know this is a long overdue post. But since it is better late than not posting at all, I should have to share the summary of my ‘air’ travels in 2012.

I had a total of twelve (12) different flights, fro and to different places in the country.

  1. January 1, 2012 — first fly in 2012 from Davao City to Cebu City
  2. March 31, 2012 — Cebu City to Davao City with Deborah’s first fly with AirPhil Express
  3. April 12, 2012 — went back to Cebu City from Davao City
  4. May 15, 2012 — Cebu City to Manila via PAL

Deborah’s First Fly with AirPhil Express

If only Deborah is a human, she’d surely be very excited Smiley for her first fly with me going back home on March 31, 2012 via AirPhil Express. Smiley Yes! She was, because I was even more excited than her. LOL!


Days before our flight, I bought her accessories. She already had flash with speed-lite, lens hood, lens UV filter, a new bag and a new cleaning set. However, there’s just one thing I totally forgot to buy — Deborah’s fragrances. She’s just used to share mists with me and so, we have the same scents. But off course, I still plan to buy her own scented spray.

While on board, it was kind of blessing in disguise that no one’s sitting the seat next to me. So I let Deborah sit beside me and had her seat belt on as well.

Isn’t she looking cute with the seat belt on? Take a look at the image above.
