Destination: International Institute for Rural Reconstruction-IIRR, Silang, Cavite, Philippines

It was a brand new experience for me cause, I have never been visited to a foreign country before, It was scary, nice and wonderful experience. I noticed, I have flied with two types of planes. Airbus and a Boeing type plane. Airbus was a really huge aircraft but Boeing was bit smaller compared to former. Even though I noticed its really really fast in speed! :)
