itinerary: hong kong and macau in 3 days

i almost had to book for hong kong alone. i have this weird habit of clicking the "Show New Updates" link in my yahoo, integrated with my facebook and twitter feeds every time i got lost in my thoughts, which i shouldn't do often at work, unless of course i'm willing to lose my job. tsk

anyway, after a random update, i was seeing the cebu pacific's feed about its sale seats for hong kong! it was i think at Php999 one way which however, expectantly summed up to a larger amount after i finished my booking. but 3100++ with check-in luggage was such a good deal already! ;)

i didn't end up booking alone but somehow, i managed to stir up other people's excitement in my previous company. i was even told that some of them had to stop from work after getting giddy with cebu pacific's crazy deal. oops, sorry.
