  1. Howdy UJ,

    Hope your trip goes smooth and no delays other than what is expected. I saw the space “A” schedule out of clark with most going to kadena AFB, one to Guam, pretty slim schedule as I thought they would go to yokota AFB more often, where there’s always a flight back to conus outta there. Are you headed back to Belton and some good ole texas BBQ? Maybe a few cold ones as well? If so, may you and yours have a safe trip getting back here

    1. Well John, the trip did not go smooth. The Space A schedule was not up before we left, it was suppose to be, but it was late, so we took a chance. Bad move. I will have more details of the whole sorted mess starting with the post later today.

  2. You prob wont get this in time, but if your bus into Manila drops off anywhere close to Megamall, can take Philtanco bus direct to Clark.

    1. Hey Don. We were not near MegaMall that I know of, but I’ll look for that next time. Which won’t be that long from now. Of course you’ll have to read the posts that I will be starting later today to find out what that is all about. We went into Cubao through Pasay, are those near MegaMall? I have no idea.

      1. Cubao is probably a 15 taxi ride if traffic is normal. Just head down EDSA. Cubao is also where they have the large seafood and wet markets and can stink pretty bad.

        1. Or can take the MRT, 3 stops to Ortigas. I think its around 12 pesos. But have to carry luggage up and down steps to get tot he platform and can be crowded.

        2. So in Cubao I can get a taxi to Philitranco by MegaMall and go straight to Clark?
          We took a bus from Cubao to Angeles for only P140 each, then a tricycle to the hotel P70, then a tricycle again to Clark another P70. Getting to the right area of Clark for Space A was tricky for us, but I’ll have all that information later after I rest up a bit.

          1. Actually, based on their website, they have bus serviced from Samar to MNL and then to Clark. So maybe you were using them already.

  3. I enjoyed sitting down with you and Lita the other day. I wish Juvic or her sister had sat in and said ‘Hi’ but Juvic said she was too shy to so that’s that, lol. I’d like my wife to meet Juvic. We have the little one, Nigel, who may like to play with the kids. He has 12 cousins on the island to play with but only one in Calbayog. Cheryl would get along fine with Juvic and Grace I think and they could do girly things together. I think Cheryl should talk to Lita a bit about what to expect in the US but we’ll have to see how long it takes Cheryl to get over her ‘shyness’ as well. I didn’t mind talking to Poppa at all John. Anybody who’s been around as long as he has must have something interesting to talk about. Always interesting to get someone elses take on things especially when they are his age. Fennel is pretty similar to anise but not as sweet so it may work out substituting that. Good luck on your trip and take lots of photos, lol. Looking forward to your next post. Randy L. should be around by that time too.

    1. Juvic and Grace are both a little shy at first, but once they start talking they are very talkative. I remember when Gary brought George by here the first time, he was a bit shy, but by the end of the visit, he was running with the other kids.
      I’m sure Cheryl would get along with Juvic and Grace. I guess they can do girly things, I don’t know what those thing are, but I guess they do. I’m sure that Lita would be happy to tell Cheryl plenty of things about the US. No need to worry about Lita being shy either. She got over that years ago.
      Sometimes even I will go outside when Poppa is drinking his ‘coffee’ (it’s just Ensure) and he is alone. I’ll get a cup of (real) coffee and go sit out there with him to talk about whatever. Of course I usually have to yell, but I can do that.
      I’ll take plenty of pictures I’m sure and I hope to have plenty to say. I hope it’s all mostly good. I don’t mind having a small problem because that way, after I figure out how to get around it, I can pass it on to y’all so y’all won’t make the same mistake, or be able to get around it if you do.
      Yes Randy should be here tomorrow. He will be coming in and I’ll be going out. We hope not to be gone long though. I do hope to be able to get some things from the commissary at one of the military bases though, whichever one we end up going to.
