Travelling To Hong-Kong

Dare to live the life you’ve always wanted.

— Anonymous.

I’ve recently visited Hong Kong, and it always feels like the first time. I’m always amazed at how fast things change and by unfamiliar places I’ve never been to.

Me and my girlfriend planned this trip for almost 2 months, as this is her first air flight.

On the 4th of December, we book a grab car around 4AM straight to Manila International Airport. As we got off the departure bay, we saw a long-queued line going in the airport terminal entrance. Hahaha always Manila… facepalm an hour and half has passed then got through security checkpoint to check-in lounge, another queue line to get our boarding pass. This is not a rant but rather a straight face story telling.

Even though after that long tiresome waiting, we didn’t let that event affect our mood and excitement flying to Hong Kong. We got our boarding pass wew, and set off to the immigration counters. I’m worried that time if my girlfriend would pass the immigration counter. As here in the Philippines, it's like you’re not allowed to leave the country type of scenario. I know that their doing it to stop some of our countrymen immigrate illegally to another country.

I went first to the immigration counter showing my renewed passport, following me is my girlfriend where she only showed her company ID. And then off we go to the boarding gates to the airplane. Never seen the look of my girlfriend's face like it's her first birthday, glad she was happy that day.

After 2 hours, we finally landed in Hong Kong. So happy 😀
