I Went Bananas Over Cebu Pacific's Diez Iz It Promo!

I have just booked four one way tickets to four different cities in the Philippines in just one sitting. In total I managed to book four flights from Cebu Pacific for P2753.80 all in. That's Manila-Cagayan De Oro-Davao-Cebu/Bohol-Manila. I could've saved P600 more had I not opted to add the small baggage allowance. How did I do it?

Here's the play by play.

It all started while I was watching the news. They were featuring the Sinulog Festival in Cebu which is one of the biggest festivals in the Philippines. It attracts a lot of tourists from all over the country who are mostly devotees of the Sto. Nino. Just by watching on television you'll feel the festive spirit of the place and the people which got me thinking, When was the last time I attended a Philippine Festival outside Manila and Pampanga? Dinagyang 2008 in Iloilo or maybe 2007. I'm not even sure.

So I had to put it in this year's travel bucketlist. Attend at least one major Philippine Festival this year. I asked my friend Google the list of upcoming festivals this year and one event caught my fancy. Its the Kadayawan sa Dabaw: The King of all festivals. I have to be there!

Kadayawan is on August 17-18 at Davao City. So Naturally I need to say what's up to my other dear friend Cebu Pacific. Guess what he answered. DIEZ IS It!

Siam Niramit: The Must-See Show Of Thailand

Siam Niramit is a world-class show about Thailand's colorful heritage, culture, and spirituality. It has won numerous International awards and captivated audiences of all nations. Siam Niramit prides itself for its big budget set designs, advance technology and stimulating special effects that can rival that of a Las Vegas or a Broadway headliner. The venue itself holds the Guinness Book of Records for having the tallest stage in the world which is more than enough to accommodate the show's over a hundred performers.

I bought my ticket online at Hotels2Thailand  for 1360 THB I picked the standard seat with buffet dinner and roundtrip transfer package. A pretty good deal because tickets at Siam Niramit normally costs 1500 THB for the standard seat alone.

Siam Niramit strictly prohibits bringing in a camera inside the theater so I just left mine at the hotel. All photos I took were taken from my cellphone so prepare your eyes for the unnecessary but sorta artsy dark and yellow tones. I am not trying to be grungy or anything.
