Last week, we asked people if they think we can successfully pull off a 5-day El Nido trip for just Php 7,000 all-in┬áper person (we’re 5 in the group). A lot of people couldn’t even begin to imagine how we’re going to do it but they wanted to see if we could really come back to Manila without empty wallets or maxed out credit cards. And so yesterday morning, when our plane landed precisely at 10:30 AM at NAIA Terminal 4, we concluded our 7k El Nido Challenge. ┬áThe final computation?

Php 6,730.66 ($149.57)

Congrats team! *virtual high-five*
