    Day 1 Off to the Conference

    June 7, 2017 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    After my morning class, I rushed back home to meet up with Rania so we could take a cab to the airport. A sudden downpour made it more difficult to get a taxi to the airport. Uber surged its price to $44 for a usual $25 one wat trip.

    Check in at Changi Terminal 3 was smooth. We did self check in. Before boarding, we had a chance to try Ippudo. Yum!

    On the way to our departure gate, we so a Pret A Manger shop, and I was pleasantly surprise.

    The flight was good and we reach Hong Kong on time. We watched Logan on the flight and we were both disappointed. We stared Beauty and the Beast but we couldn't finished the film as we touched down in Hong Kong.

    The last time we were in Hong Kong, we took the airport express, so this time we took Bus A11 and take a more scenic route.

    We arrived in Wan Chai and self check in our airbnb. We scoot immediately to Dim Dim Sum , our go to place in Hong Kong. Before the night is over, we walk around the Hong Kong Conference and Convention Centre and took pictures of Victoria harbour.

    Bacolod Day 14

    April 9, 2017 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    On our final day, breakfast started at 8:30 in the morning.

    By 10, we were ready for the final debrief and photo-op with everyone at the ERH Village. The scholars and kids came early to bid us farewell. My students donated their personal stuff that they no longer needed. One of my students washed and cleaned her shoes so she can pass it to someone called Bombai, one of the construction workers at the Cabug site.

    We had our awarding of gifts to Mikmik, Erma and to the rest of the GK Volunteers.

    Tears of sadness and joy were overflowing from our team and our host community as we slowly departed from our home of 2 weeks. It wasn't easy to leave, I had to "drag" the team to the 3 vans that were waiting to bring us to Bacolod-Silay airport.

    After a quick transit into Manila, we embarked on our final flight back to Singapore and touched down at Changi at 11:30pm.

    Shankar and I shared a cab on our way home to the west side of Singapore. I arrived at home at around 1 in the morning with a pleasant surprise waiting for me.
