That Valentines Get away

Wifey and me have always wanted to schedule a beach getaway with Pipay. We just felt that Pipay would enjoy the sand and the water. So we scheduled a 5 day vacation to Boracay from Feb 14 – 19 2016. The plane tickets were already booked, and we already reserved for a beach front hotel in station 1.  We always want to either do a staycation or do an actual vacation on special days. Wifey and I have agreed that we will not give gifts to one another during special days (birthdays, anniversaries, valentines), but rather we will just go on a vacation or staycation on those days. And so the Feb 14 – 19 get away should have also been our Valentine’s get away.

Then last night I received an email from ERDFI president Tito Aliga. The CEO summit will be scheduled on Feb 16, 2016. Hahaha, right in the middle of our vacation. I could have excused myself. But….I will be one of two plenary speakers, who will have a chance to present my current research work over a group of CEO’s. I will be speaking with MVP and Data Banatao. How can I actually miss that?

I originally planned to leave Boracay early on the 16th and return on the afternoon of the same day. But it is not feasible. So plan B is to leave Boracay on the afternoon of the 15th for the night time flight going back to Manila and to return back late in the afternoon on the 16th. One day of my Valentines vacation. But the opportunity to represent the College is just so important that perhaps OK lang din naman.

So I already booked my KLO – MNL return ticket, and suprisingly 2,500 pesos lang ticket for a PAL flight. Not bad at all.
