Playground (2)

So here is the continuation of yesterday’s post.

There are three airlines that fly to Catarman.

PAL flies every day.
Cebu Pacific flies on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays
Zestair (formerly Asian Spirit) flies on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays

These airlines land and take off in the morning. So from 6AM to 8PM, no one is allowed to loiter. Kapag wala pang parating na airplane, pwedeng mag-jog at magwalk dun kahit pa HHWW LOL! Pero kapag parating na ang eroplano, you will be politely asked na tumabi hehehe, to go to a safe distance. You will hear an alarm, yung parang sa ambulance, from a roving vehicle. Yun na ang senyales na kailangan mo munang lisanin ang airport pansamantala. Along the airport, maraming lusutan dyan papunta sa mga bahay na nasa malapit lang.

Ganito ang itsura ng airport kapag wala nang tao. Biglang nagiging ghost town na hahaha.

Sorry I couldn’t take a shot from the same angle as that in the picture on the previous post.

Tapos, kapag nakalipad na ang huling eroplano for the day, tuloy ang ligaya hehehe.

The national highway crosses on one side of the airport. Pero binubuksan lang ang highway na ito at 4 in the afternoon. So from 4PM to 6AM, pwedeng tumawid ng airport ang mga vehicles.

I really find this airport interesting. Dahil sabi ko nga sa previous post ko, ito pa lang ang airport na nakita kong pwedeng gawing playground ng mga tao. But if you know of any other airport that also doubles as playground, let me know. Susubukin kong dalawin πŸ™‚

  1. Yehey! First base!

    Talagang inabangan ko itong part 2 na ito… At kaya pala maraming tao sa airport! Hehehe… Pinoy talaga…

    Great post. Tatak “nook and crannies”. Hehehe…

  2. hahaha! Thanks, Mark. Tatak “nooks and cranies” ba? pareho yata kasi tayo ng hilig kunan ng piktyur eh.

    Hmn, usung-uso yang pagbi-base-base na ‘yan ah.

  3. kkatuwa nman dahil dyan pala e pede na gumala at maglaro pa ang mga tao..dyan nga lang ata pede yan at onli in d pilipins..di ba?

  4. oo nga po, mukhang sa airport lang na yan pwedeng may tao hehehe. but i’ve never been to all parts of the Philippines so baka naman meron pang ibang ganitong airport πŸ˜‰

  5. hahaha! ayos.. kumbaga sa tools sa bahay at kung saan2: MULTI PURPOSE itong airport na to. hehehe

  6. hehehe, yes, AC, multipurpose nga ‘yang airport na ‘yan.

  7. part 2..cool. onli in Pinas…..may paraan talaga ang pinoy para ienjoy ang mga bagay-bagay…sabihin na nila ang dapat nilang sabihin….wala pa rin tatalo sa ating pagdating sa abilidad….

  8. tama ka dyan, bluguy. Although, medyo nag-aalala lang ako sa playground na ito kasi baka delikadong nasa airport yung mga tao.

  9. This is interesting – airport na pwedeng playground. Huwag lang sana magpalipad ng battery-operated toy planes kasi baka magkabanggaan, hehe.

  10. Yes, interesting nga, Dfish.
    Sige, hindi po ako magpapalipad ng de-bateryang eroplanodoon hehehe

  11. hmmm interesting ah. sana mapasyal ako dyan. kung sakaling ako’y masintensyahan ng tuluyan come this saturday at mag compulsory retire as hukombitay, i’ll probably be considering your province as my first stop pagkatapos ko magpakalango sa alak. maybe there i’ll find my solitude and calling. maybe…

    hay… so you like people watching noh?! not just the scenery but most specially the people. napansin ko lang kasi you’re very observant with details and with the kind of pictures you take. lull time must be your personal refuge?…

  12. hmn, tapos na ang saturday ah. kumusta, ano na ang naging sentensiya? i hope it was for your best.

    yes, mahilig akong mag-observe, but not to the point of being intrusive and offensive. human behavior never fails to amaze and amuse me πŸ™‚

  13. well parang flight lang, it’s delayed. tuloy ang eyebags ko mistulang black eye na. huhu (seriously) kaya eto the waiting and praying continues.

    human behavior… kung sabagay… i do have a habit minsan na ganyan. enjoy nga naman.

  14. Nice naman. Ayos yang airport na yan ah. First time lang ako nakarinig ng mga ganyang klaseng airport. Ang nasa utak ko lang kasi na itsura ng airport ay yung nandito sa Manila at yung mga nasa movies. Meron din palang ganyang pwede ang mga tao basta walang eroplano.

  15. hehehe opo, ganun ang airport sa aking mahal na probinsya–ibang klase πŸ˜€

  16. nice to be here again…

    very informative ha. ngayon ko lang din nalaman na may ganyang airport sa atin sa pinas. i’ve always to see samar. dun kasi sa dati kong work, madalang akong ipadala sa visayas area. puro luzon lagi πŸ™

    parang ang sarap magpunta dyan at maglaboy… pampaalis ng stress. hehehe!

    p.s.
    salamat sa makabuluhan mong comment sa post ko and for including me in your prayers πŸ™‚

  17. yep, masarap po magpalaboy-laboy dun sa airport na yun. mahangin kasi nga ang nasa dulo ng airport ay dagat. masarap pang-destress πŸ˜‰

    walang anuman po. sana nga ay may sense ang comment ko sa post mo πŸ˜€

  18. enjoy Mar 2nd 2009

    oo naman… isang malaking morale booster πŸ™‚

  19. Playground? ayos a, ang laki naman ng laruan mo malaki rin ba ang remote control nyan?

    parang trip ko tuloy mag tayo ng bahay bahayan jan sa gitna πŸ˜€

    hehehehe πŸ˜€

  20. hahaha walang remote control ‘yan, jex.

    sayang lang ang magiging bahay-bahayan mo. kasi pag dumating ang eroplano, kailangan i-fold up ang bahay-bahayan hehehe

  21. HHWW? Walang pa-sway-sway? =(

  22. hehehe walang pa-sway-sway, Diwa. HHWW lang hehehe

  23. aha!..nandito naman na pla ang kasagutan sa aking katanungan..hehehe

    hehehe oo nga, Muymuy. Oks lang naman.

  25. a few weeks ago, im looking for aerial shots & maps of every airport here in the philippines thru google maps. napansin ko rin na the road intersects to the runway and in this blog confirmed my wild guest (the pple will play when the planes are away).

    last may 9, Cebu Pacific (5J) suspended indefinitely mnl-catarman flights due to safety issues. now im guessing that this is the “safety issue”.

    5J’s mnl-catarman is now mnl-calbayog. if am catarman, ill let resolved the safety issue ryt away so that calbayog will not get my passengers, cargo & more importantly my tourist.

    Hahahah.. “,)
    Been reading your blog for almost an hour now. I Love all of them. Specially your Coron and Boracay-Iloilo trip via Roro. Neweiz Im an Ilongga and like you I am also a traveller. But bcoz of limited time (due to the kind of work) and resources I have I can only Fly @least twice a year.
    Im so amaze reading about this kind of airport you have. Prang i can’t imagine n ng eexist ung ganitong style. (pls dont get me wrong) well naka2tuwa sya (2 thumbs Up ako dun x comment “onli n D Phils.”,) ung mga gnitong eksena.@ d same time Im wondering why our government allow this to happened. Tsk..tsk.. sana mabigyang pansin yan ng local & national government natin..

    Hi Adethe!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and for spending time reading some of its entries. Natutuwa ako at napunta ka sa blog ko. Paano mo nga pala ito nakita?

    Traveling is fun. Pero tulad nga ng sinabi mo, kalaban ng isang traveler ang limited time and resources, lalo na sa tulad kong di naman rich. Pero ang sikreto ng mga byahe ko ay alkansya hehehe. Basta gusto kong puntahan ang isang lugar ay nag-aalkansya ako, paunti-unti, walang pressure dapat kasi wala namang deadline ang byahe at andyan lang naman ang mga magagandang tanawin, naghihintay lang sa ating pagdalaw πŸ˜‰

    Ah, yung airport sa amin, I’m happy to tell you na ngayon ay hindi na siya ginagawang park. Hindi na pwedeng gumala doon ang mga tao at ang mga aso hehehe. Pero nadadaanan pa rin siya ng mga sasakyang tatawid ng airport. May gate kasi yun at may oras ng pagbubukas para makadaan ang mga sasakyan. Part of the main highway kasi traverses the airport eh. In the afternoon, at 4PM, binubuksan na ang airport para sa mga tatawid na sasakyan. It closes at 11PM yata.
