TPA, PHL, Fuji Provia RDP III, and U.S. Airways

I really am posting pictures of my US trip in no particular order. Haha~

Pictures in this post are from during my flight from Florida to Chicago with Philadelphia as the stopover. It was my first time to fly with U.S. Airways.

I read gels like our slang of girls. =_=


Tampa International Airport (TPA) is one of my favorite airports because they have free WiFi. 😛

TPA has a mall feel to it. The fast food, restaurants, and souvenir shops are accessible unlike the other airports I’ve been to. The airport is also small.

Safety procedures
There’s a reason why I took a picture of this, but I’d rather not say anymore. *ninja*

Ginger Ale — my staple drink when flying
First time I tried Seagrams’


US Airways isn’t so bad. It seems I got to ride in a fairly new plane of theirs. I’m glad they gave me a good seat. Guess which seat I got. 😀

I’m a Fuji Provia RDP III 100F film n00b. So this is one of those slide films that when cross-processed produces shots in blue hues. I’m not a fan of the color, so I don’t like it that much. 😛 I find this film best under very sunny conditions and for nature and rural areas shoots. What I like about it is the bit of graininess and the vignette it produces. But I wonder if the silhouette and vignette effects are due to the film being expired .

It’s my first time to set foot on Philadelphia. First I noticed before landing there is they seem to have numerous industries/factories.

Couldn’t decide


Pepperoni Stromboli
So I chose Pepperoni Stromboli. Salty as expected.
Do we have such in the Philippines? In Sbarro maybe?


The Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) looks almost like Detroit Metro Airport (DTW). Only a smaller. I like that it’s clean, not crowded, and there’s also free WiFi (from the terminal I waited). I saw many movie posters in one area of the airport. I saw all the Rocky movies which is what I only remember because I was surprised. I didn’t know all its movies were made in Philadelphia. LOL

More planes


There are many ‘firsts’ in this flight. 🙂 I wonder if I’ll get to tour somewhere in Philadelphia. Do I know anyone who lives there who might wanna adopt me for a while when I visit? Hrhr~
