Finalized my USA ticket and my jitters!

OK, I am finally happy with the ticket I bought.  I bought an All Nippon Airways (ANA) ticket through Cheap-o Air.  It costs less than my Hawaiian Airlines and with my trust in Japanese people,  probably great customer service.  I've taken ANA before when my sister Pincky and I flew from Tokyo to Osaka to go to the Universal Studios.  It was actually a memorable experience because we almost missed our flight and yet they still let us in when I told them we got lost (a.k.a. lost track of time shopping) on the way to the airport, the crew were nice enough to let us in last minute with no hassle.

It's my first time to buy anything from Cheap-O Air.  My friend Nina recommended it, said she always find good deals in the website.  She was right.  My ticket had their Lowest Price Guarantee and indeed they were.  I found my flight a few days before the day I bought it because I was afraid of the commitment; I was afraid that I might change my mind and my plans would again; but then it was actually a good decision because it became a few dollars cheaper AND it was the last ticket!  So with one eye closed, I entered my credit card number and booked it!

I later on confirmed that when they say it's the last ticket, it's really true.  I'm always skeptical about these things because I took up advertising in college and I know panic is a good emotion to trigger if you want someone to buy right away.   I tried searching the same flight again on a different website a few minutes after I booked it and it says that the flight isn't available anymore!  hey, whaddya know?  they weren't lying! lol.   I did not try to check my flight again after that because I want to remain happy with my purchase!  I would be so pissed if I find out my ticket is now 50% off or something. lol.

So, to sum it up, I am spending 2 and a half months in the US hitting states mostly in the East Coast then the South then Alaska then come home from San Francisco.  I have traveled by myself a few times before but never this long and not this far from home.  I look forward to the fun stuff but I know I am going to have to suck up a lot of things I am not comfortable with and may be faced with situations that are less than ideal; adjust to a culture we Filipinos presume to know so much about. What do you think are the possible culture shocks I'd encounter?  Help me prepare!


  1. Good job for buying the ticket! As for culture shock... prepare for the massive food serving size. :)

  2. have fun!!!! pag balik mo, nanganak na ako!!!--- hey, send me interesting postcards ha
