So green! And those inlet bays look really nice.
For some reason, in my previous trips to the Philippines, I either arrive in the evening or when it's cloudy or when it's raining. In fact, when I landed in Manila, the skies turned grey and then dark. Luckily, the skies were quite okay during our descent.
But for this particular flight, direct flight from Xiamen, China* to Manila, Philippines, the aeroplane was flying low when we entered Philippine airspace and maybe I am just on the right side of the window seat that I could see clearly the landmass and form of the Philippine archipelago. So the opportunities were there definitely to take the shots.
However, I only have a pocket camera so the quality and focus of the photos are not that excellent sometimes, especially when you are taking it from a far distance.
*I was in Xiamen, China for 3 days.
I do not have specific stories to tell for this post except a few photos that I would like to share during the descent of this flight to NAIA 2 (also called as PAL or Centennial Airport). I flew with PAL - Philippine Airlines, the national carrier of the country.

Aha, it looks like we have entered Philippine territory now. Right below the clouds is the Philippine archipelago. I do not think China would dispute this airspace, haha.
The peninsula land formation reminds me of the Greek Islands.
A tapestry of farm fields.
Oh, we are almost there! Just hang on tight.
Not sure which city this is, could be Ortigas or Makati?
Yup, we are almost landing...
Finally landed. That's Makati City in the far distance.
This is my connecting flight to Cebu =)
Finally in Cebu being picked up by my Dad and Sister and on our way home =)
