I had the same thing happen to me couple trip backs, they said it would be 1 to 4 hours to replace the motor. I figured it would take the 4 hours, They let us get off the plane, I went to the Delta Sky Lounge and started drinking cold San Migs, it was the full 4 hours before we got back on the plane. Good Times that trip was........

Welcome to the US and to PA!!! Hope you have winter coats ready for her, it's been a cold winter. There are a few Filipino stores in and around Philly but I found it best to go out to Jersey City. We ship our Balikbayan boxes from Makati Shippers in Jersey City. It's $48 for a jumbo box (the last 2 were 100 pounds or more each), if you ship from Philly count on paying $90 for the same box. Worth the trip plus there are 2 Filipino groceries right next door with fresh fish from the piers and cheap! On top of that there is a Jolibee restaurant 15 minutes away. If you're not familiar with Jolibee, she is. These are good things to know with the new wife. Congrats!!!
