The other side of Hong Kong

Just as I was starting to get settled to being back in Manila, I received an e-mail from Tigerair: I have a flight coming up in a couple of days.

Isn’t that a lovely gesture?

Tigerair Philippines operate its most of its international flights from the Diosdado Macapagal Airport in Clark, Pampanga. I booked the first flight out of Clark, which departs at 7 am. Of course, that meant I had to be at the airport by five in the fricking morning. Luckily, there’s a shuttle from Trinoma that leaves at 3 am, so I was at the airport with plenty of time to spare.
