The opportunity came when AirAsia finally "landed" its way to the Philippines. I was able to book two flights that will depart at Clark DMIA, Pampanga and though the airport was close to our city, I never really had the chance to commute going there, so I looked for convenient and cheap ways on commuting to Clark airport.

On my first flight going to Kuala Lumpur, I was able to take a bus from Victory Liner Monumento and alighted at Dau Mabalacat bus terminal. I was supposed to take the free AirAsia shuttle from Marquee Mall but I found out upon arriving there that they halted this service since January of this year. Afterwards, I took the air-conditioned jeepney that will take me directly to the airport for 50 bucks. Total cost was 185 pesos and travel time took for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
I was able to find out about the new bus route from Trinoma which are operated by different companies such as Philtranco, Genesis, Victory Star and Five Star. I decided to take this as it would only require me one bus trip.
Airlines that operate from Clark are as follows:
* Air Asia
* Cebu Pacific
* Tiger Airways
* Zest Air
* Asiana Airlines
* Dragon Air
The lounge is open 24 hours and the bus fare is only 200 pesos! :)

|Lots of seats for the tired traveler :)|
Our bus was scheduled to depart 3AM, and the bus arrived 30 minutes early. We were directed to go inside the bus already and waited for any late passengers. At exactly 3AM, we left TriNoma.
|We rode "Genesis" which did not have any Wi-Fi connections|
Now, I have no excuse of postponing that cheap sale ticket from Clark. Hooray for convenient bus travels! :)
Schedule of Departure from Trinoma:
* 3:00 AM
* 8:00 AM
* 3:00 PM
