At the Sole Sisters HQ, keyboards are furiously tapping travel dates and personal information while mouses (mice?) are busy trying to find the best seats available. What's up? Oh nothing much except it's only the BIGGEST FREE SEAT SALE IN SOUTHEAST ASIA!


Same as last year, Air Asia is again offering free seats from Nov9-14 for flights to any Southeast Asian country that you desire. Travel period is from Jul1-Nov10. Can you tell that our hearts just skipped a beat? Free seat sales make the Sole Sisters frightfully giddy (picture us jumping up and down and giggling uncontrollably).

A few minutes prior to Nov 9, we were chatting with fellow pinoy travel bloggers. As expected, everyone was waiting and trying their luck at scoring free seats too. Great minds think the same great thoughts eh? Well, almost everyone except fellow blogger and news personality Ivan Henares who threatened to shut down his PC for fear of incurring more bookings. We wonder if he was really able to say NO in the face of temptation.

The Sole Sisters definitely couldn't resist. Our hearts racing and fingers crossed, we pressed the payment submission button. We waited, with bated breath, for the web site to give us the confirmation page.

And then BAM! The dreaded SERVER BUSY page! Same as with the Piso Fares from CebPac, Air Asia's promo sale draws budget-conscious travellers (e.g. cheapskates, Sole Sisters) like white on rice. You can imagine their servers would get pretty busy.

But do we give up that easily? Nope. In the face of free seat sales, ladies and gentlemen, the Sole Sisters' patience has no limits. We can be like Mother Theresa just to score those tix.

Our patience paid off and we finally scored tickets for Bali, Indonesia in July 2011 for the total amount of...wait for it...Php3,153 round trip. We can now Eat Pray Love ala Elizabeth Gilbert (minus hunky Javier Bardem)!
Bali's waves and coast are just gorgeous and perfect for surfing, Sole Sister Lois would be in surfer's heaven.

While you can bet your ruppiah, Sole Sister Chichi will soak in the warm Bali sun in between Yoga and meditation classes.
