Nissa says it was the best family vacation ever. It’s Nate’s first plane ride. Every time they come over for a visit, we would  stay in the garden for a while and pick Calamansi (Philippine lime) or watch and count the airplanes going to and from the airport down south. Our place is on the eastern side of Metro Manila so we could clearly see airplanes passing by.  Maybe now that he has experienced riding on one, he would no longer embrace you  tight while pointing up (we call them big birds) in the sky. They spent  four  glorious days in Siquijor and Dumaguete City in the Visayas.
