I’m so honored to kick-off the new feature of Cebu Pacific’s in-flight magazine SMILE, THE SHOESTRING DIARIES where I wrote my Zamboanga City adventure. This article shows everyone going to Asia’s Latin City, some places to visit, foods to try and pasalubongs to buy complete with expenses summary each day. For this article I did a 72-hour suggested itinerary for the budget traveler.
For those flying with Cebu Pacific this July, you can still read my article on-board.
What more, you can download the PDF version now (of course, for FREE):
I’m happy that I’m receiving positive notes from the community at Rio Hondo as they are receiving visitors every week to check out the community on stilts.
Here are some of the testimonials received so far:
Ang totoo Gammar, napakasaya ko dahil sa hospitality at pagiging bukas loob ninyo sa akin at sa lahat ng bumibisita sa inyo. Hnd matutumbasan ng ano pa man ang kabutihan ninyo, ngunit makakaasa kang lagi ko kayong isasama sa aking mga panalangin! Maraming maraming salamat Ton at Jamz! –Jeff, Manila
