welcome back Pinas!

It was the 12th of December, my bags are pack and I'm ready to go! It was a hot december in Barbados so I was wearing my usual shorts and tshirt. Good thing I remembered that I'll be having a 12hr lay over in NYC and it's winter there!! So i changed to something more winter resistant and headed for Barbados Airport...

A few hours later I'm in NYC and I've finally experience my first snow! (I was really really tempted to make snow angel in the side street. :D ) Sadly though no snow fall that night...

It was freezing cold and a couple of us were waiting for the Days Inn hotel shuttle service. 5...10... 20minutes passed and still no Days Inn shuttle for us (there were a lot of other hotel shuttles passing by though). Then along came the security guard and asked us what hotel are we staying in. So when I replied "Days Inn", he pointed us to a parked shuttle that was already there before I arrived. There was a big label on the side that says Fairfield Inn and a letter size paper in the window saying Days Inn. So when we got in I told the driver what happend and he said that it happens all the time but he just waits for the passenger to realize their mistakes!! So no tip for him! hmmph!

It was already 2am in my cellphone and the flight is 9am so after setting all the possible alarm clocks that I have (DS and 2 cellphones) I went to sleep and woke up around 8am!! And as I was about to do the "hilamos lang pero mukhang na ligo" ritual I realized that I might be on a different timezone. So I called the front desk to confirm the time and lo and behold it was just 7am and I still have time for a decent morning ritual. ^__^

Fast forward... Detroit airport, as I was paying for the pasalubongs that i bought in the store, this
