SHOUT OUT TO Philippine Airlines

It was last quarter of last year that Philippine Airlines restarted their Cebu-Bangkok International Flight. It was then the start of PadThai cravings season! Everybody traveled to Thailand to again experience the beauty of culture, and food, and enjoy Thai Food and Thai Hospitality. Luckily this year, I was able to cross out this item from my bucket list. Thanks to the direct flight from Cebu to Bangkok via Philippine Airlines.
