  1. Uj,
    Do a search on United airlines web site for tickets. Last time I checked it was approx $2K (elcheapo section) round-trip from Manila to Killeen and back. And yep United does go to killeen from Houston their major hub which will get you closer to home. And I agree you need to go sooner than later, both my folks passed away in their early 80’s and no one was expecting it as they both seemed to be in good health. Take care amigo !!

    1. The airline tickets? Yeah, that’s probably about right, but I was including for food, transportation, lodging and whatever else while I was there. Actually I believe, if I go at the right time, I can get round trip for a little less than $1800. Even less if I can find a sale. The last time I looked, last week, Qatar Airlines could get me all the way to Killeen also (from Dallas) and the tickets (I forget when) were around $850 each way (so about $1700 round trip). I like to check and dream every now and then. I worry everyday that I will not get to see them alive again. I try hard, but life has to come first.

  2. I’m a Filipino/American from Virginia. I truly enjoy your blog and articles. Always looking forward to views of Philippines from a Kano’s perspective. They are all very interesting.
    Thank you!

    1. I’m glad you are enjoying the articles. I just recently started back up but hope to continue for quite a while. Please share with anyone else that you believe would enjoy and/or benefit from this blog.
