Prepping Up For A Digital Nomadic Lifestyle And Back In Manila

Just arrived in Manila a day ago from Phnom Penh.  I admit my visit for 4 days and 4 nights to Cambodia is never complete without seeing Siem Reap where the famous Angkor wats are. Also I regretted having two nights layover in Malaysia that I could have used to go to Siem Reap. Anyway I can always book a separate flight for that next time.  Out of the  USD 200 I brought, what is left is USD 68+, Malaysian Ringgit 50+ and Cambodian Riel 100.  I also brought Philippine Peso worth 5, 000+ cash with me and intentionally not changed it to American dollars because I know I would not be spending much since my trip covered my accommodation and food.  I will only use this for circumstances that I don’t want to happen.

There’s so much that I learned about selling foreign denomination in Manila when I get home. I went to a reputable bank to exchange my US dollars, they only accepted those paper bills that look new, not crimpled and no visible stains. They only convert Philippine peso to US dollars so I have to go to a money changer for my remaining Ringgits but they only chose the paper bills and not the coins I have. Actually my target is to save $100 but I was short for $32. I think these amount was spent most of eating at airports which I find quite expensive compared to food outside. Well I don’t have a choice since I never get out of Kuala Lumpur International Airport for the hours I need to wait for my connecting flight before and after going to Phnom Penh.

Airport Guide For Passengers Via Air Asia Leaving Manila Without Check in Baggage

Whew! Made it to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Here I am sipping a Starbucks coffee to keep me awake. I arrived around 6pm, it is currently 9pm and my connecting flight is 6am. That means  I still have six hours to kill time.  I am already tired and drowsy but as much as possible I don’t want to sleep in one of the chairs here inside the public lounge so I can guard my personal belongings. The private lounge here costs $20+ per hour so that is pretty expensive so I decided to skip it.
