I’m back! In case you’re wondering where my happy steps took me and why there were no posts in this travel blog for more than a week, well I was in Cebu since February 4. What a hectic week it had been, meeting friends and
going out to the malls. We also stayed in three different accommodations in uptown Cebu. I’ll be posting photos and some information about them on my next post.
Meanwhile here is an important announcement from the New Bacolod (Silay) Airport regarding passenger terminal fees:

Section 10. Passenger Service Charge.

Funny, how my SIL commented about the previous terminal fee at only Php 30.00 for domestic flights during their flight back to Cebu last December 2008. She was wondering how the airport can earn income with such low fee. Well, this announcement is the answer to her question. 🙂
