Come Hell or High Water

“Come hell or high water”. You’d think that’s what happened seeing the pics of my parents here in Cebu. But no, they almost had to cancel their Cebu trip after being given a scare by PAL for subjecting the passengers of the 930am flight to a more than an hour of delay due to “further aircraft servicing”. Mama, who easily gets nervous taking plane rides, naturally thought it was unsafe to take that plane to Cebu.
The 830 call I received from Paparazzi was to tell me they were not going on the trip. I suggested that they take a later flight. They were told all flights were fully booked with people taking advantage of this long break and time of the year (All Saints’ Day) . Jerry promptly made a call from Cebu to PAL and reserved and confirmed 2 seats for them on the 330pm flight. Thank GOD for Jerry’s quick thinking…
After stressful conversations through cellphone calls where I even involved my brother, based in Canada, they finally relented and proceeded to take the afternoon flight. Mama even asked why I had to drag Junnie to “act as lawyer” for me. Hahaha. Well, I just felt they would find it hard to refuse him… I was absolutely correct!
After all is said and done, I’m glad they still made the trip!
