More dive trips coming up!
Cebu Pacific http://book.cebupacificair.com/?culture=en-US is having a 0 Peso promo until 18 May 08! I just couldn’t resist these airline promotions! So booked air tickets to Cebu 6th to 13th Dec. Just $123 per pax, we are just paying for taxes, fuel surcharges etc. Will be returning to Malapascua, as Terence is keen to meet thresher sharks. We are praying for manta rays too!
In early Feb, we managed to bag a wonderful deal with Jetstar Asia http://www.jetstarasia.com/ for our Bali trip (31st July to 5th Aug). $215 each, airfare is $39 each way. We had to pay $40 for the booking through phone, as the online ticketing system was not working properly… During ADEX, we booked with Tulamben Wreck Divers http://www.tulambenwreckdivers.com/dive-bali.asp?, they were having a promo. US$399 for 3 nites of accommodation, breakfast & unlimited diving for 3days (with equipement)!
Thanks to the budget airlines, now we can afford to dive more… I figured we could always buy more travel insurance, they don’t care if you are taking SQ or budget right? Well, I received good & prompt service from NTUC Income travel insurance for my medical claim (middle ear infection), was reimbursed in less than 2 wks!
Our 2008 trip quota (self-imposed) has been reached with these 2 coming trips. As for next year, I really want to revisit Timor Leste. The plan is for a mid July trip. Heard that there would be a straight flight from Singapore to Dili soon!
Another good news is the company has introduced a new benefit scheme, I can now claim upto $590 for vacations! Or use the money for vaccinations, health checks etc.
