At 7 AM, all of us were already up and ready to go to the airport.

By 7:30 AM, we were already at the airport.

By 8:00 AM, we were already got our plane seats confirmed.

By 8:30 AM, we were already relieved to pass the immigration gate.. until we realized we had no breakfast. Also, thinking that any airport in the whole world would have anything for us to eat. Again, the junta has let us down, even to the last minutes. We were all silent, we were already thinking of food in the airplane. We had nothing but a small portion of bread to be split into 6 of us.

By 10:30 AM, flight got delayed.

By 12:00 AM, we opened a small bag of nuts.

By 1:00 PM, the plane arrived. Bravah!

By 2:00 PM we are already up in the air. We were delighted to be on board until the announcement that there will be no real food on board, just some refreshments. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! I just ordered two portions of orange juice, ate some cookies, and forced myself to watch that only movie on my ipod - High School Musical... not bad... :(
