3 Good News + 1 Bad News = not such a bad day...
Good News #1 - I just received my Marni wedge sandals I bought on sale 50% off two weeks ago!
Good News #2 - The red distressed shorts I bought from I.T. without trying fits me (I was really worried since I never tried their jeans before and I have no idea what does size 36 - apparently equivalent to 25 inches - means!?).
Bad News #1 - We missed our flight to Taipei yesterday and therefore out-of-pocket by $380 worth of penalties!
Good News #3 - I rebooked our trip to Taipei using my Aeroplan points and ended up paying only $98 for airport taxes!!!
Let me tell you how upset I was when we finally got to the airport and was told that we were 5 mins late for check-in cut-off time!!! And if we were to catch the next flight out (5 hours later), it would be a grand total of $1000 for price adjustment for all 3 of us since our original tickets were bought at discount! That's basically how much it would cost to get new tickets Shanghai-Taipei!
Anyways, really bummed out, I decided to cancel my hotel reservation ($160 penalty) and our flight ($220 penalty) and go home.
Once home, that when I started furiously looking for replacement flights at a reasonable price. Then, I suddenly had the brilliant idea of using my Aeroplan points!!! Hehe...not too bad, right?
