  • Sings *    I’m leaving on a jetplane.      , La, la ,, la ……but I know when I’ll be back again ……. Feb. 29, 2020.

 

So many things have happened  in the Philippines and worldwide,  enough reasons to abort our  much – awaited vacation in the Philippines.

 

  1. Taal Volcano eruption on  Jan. 13, just 30 miles from our house in  Paranaque, Metro-Manila.  We bought 3 boxes ( 20 masks per box)  to protect us from  the ashes that  fell  over Manila.

2. Corona virus…… My airline was Eva Airlines, Taiwan’s official carrier. Our flight  was  San Francisco——- 2 hour lay-over at Taiwan’s airport —— Manila, Philippines.  Unfortunately, just this week, Monday,  the Philippine government banned travelers from Taiwan  from entering the country, including transients from other countries, like me, whose point of origin is the USA.   My mom frantically  told me to immediately cancel my Eva Airlines schedule.  I did  that just 2 days ago, and bought Korea Air, with a 2 – hour lay-over in Seoul, Korea.  I got the last 4 spaces .  Majority of the passengers  are Eva Airlines cancelees. I hope the Philippine government won’t ban  Korea.   South Korea and  the Philippines  are besties.

3.   Believe it or not,  I can’t find  masks here in our city, nor in Los Anegeles.  ( according to my sister ) .  I’ve been to so many stores here ( Rite-Aid, WalGreens, CVS, Target, WalMart, Home Depot ) …… Zilch, zero, none.  What ????  No masks even here in the US????? The heck !

 

Anyway,

 

please wish us luck.  My Mom, sister, co-worker, and yours truly are leaving on Saturday, Feb. 15.

 

I’m going to bring my laptop, and hope I can find time to blog.

 

Bye ! !  Muaaaah !
