5D4N Philippines Day 5 : DM Residente, Philippine Airport Tax, KLIA-LCCT, AirAsia Self Check In Kiosk, LCCT Food Garden


09.10 am – Woke up to a very sad Monday.

As the saying goes, ‘All good things must come to an end’.

09.30 am – After successfully checking out, we hopped into the van

and proceeded towards the airport.

Fields Avenue, the area where we stayed in is actually very near the airport.

09.43 am – Security checks by the entrance.

The very empty, open spaced airport.

There were a total of 4 security checks beginning from the entrance to the airport and my bottles of San Miguel and Red Horse were confiscated from me. =(

Received our boarding pass but everyone leaving from Diosdado Macapagal International Airport had to pay PHP600 worth of airport tax.

I don’t understand why it isn’t included in our flight tickets.

10.26 am – The stalls at the departure lounge.

The only place that sells rice.

Salty and tastes like crap. Very unlike the usual Filipino food.

Went to get something more from Mister Donut.

Looks like shit. Tastes like shit.

Big Apple / J.Co is any day better than Mister Donut.

11.28 am – Began the long walk to

our plane.

Sat beside the giants again.

This time, we were all neighbours.

Directly beside each other.

12.53 pm – Ordered a drink only as the aircraft ran out of food?

Lucky they still have my favourite RM2 Shandong peanuts.

01.30 pm – The lack of sleep caught up to us.

03.26 pm – Landed in KLIA-LCCT.

Walked the long journey back to the arrival hall.

03.56 pm – Waited for Anthony to buy his duty free ciggies.

04.22 pm – Decided to give AirAsia’s check in kiosk another chance after it failed during my trip to Bali earlier this year

Today, it worked!

Checked in and printed out the boarding passes for the remaining 6 Penang brothers successfully.

04.27 pm – After that, I took the long walk

along the long corridor

to KLIA-LCCT’s new humongous food court called Food Garden.


Naturally, the healthiest choice is mixed rice.

Penang’s nasi campur is any day better than this, but then again, this is the best that anyone can get at the moment.

05.19 pm – After the heavy meal at Food Garden, the 2 KL brothers continued their journey back home while the rest hung around Starbucks.

Lined up and

got ourselves drinks.

07.42 pm – Dinner at Taste Of Asia.

09.09 pm – Entered the domestic departure hall and

waited for our plane to arrive.

The pretty empty place on a Monday night.

10.47 pm – I actually wanted to order a Roast Chicken Thigh with BBQ Sauce but was told that they ran out of food supplies already.

11.02 pm – We were all so damn tired.

12.17 am – Home sweet home.
