My 2012 highlights – Welcoming 2013 with Bright Ideas!

It’s time for my year end post, giving you the highlights of my 2012. I thought it was just a simple year but yet I realized I was blessed with so much travels and good vibes.

January - My birth month and I decided to celebrate it with the Eskapaderas at the Jill’s at The Fort Strip. It’s just a few walks away from the office so we just freshen up, changed clothes and went after there after work. It was fun, crazy and I had a birthday cake! It always feel so good having good friends around.

It was also our 8th year anniversary and we celebrated it by a “hiking date”. Yes, we went to Mt.Romelo for a day hike and it put our physical skills to the limit as we do not expect how difficult it could be during rainy season. Hal got sick after the climb and that is the downside yet we that's the most memorable anniversary celebration we had.

We also volunteered in Real Life Foundation and had some running activities. 

February - went with my Bembangan friends to PuertoGalera and had a wonderful experience. I learned a lot from them and chillin' is the best part of this trip. 

Then we also scheduled a hike to Mt. Pinatubo with the Eskapaderas again and hal. Another check on my wishlist. 

March - Another trip with Bembangan. My first to organize a DIY trip. We went to Calaguas and visiting this island was another check on my list. Though it was a challenging travel, rough boat ride and plus a heavy backpack, Calaguas didn't fail to awe us. 

April - Last minute call for joiners, I am lucky to check my Twitter before the Holy week. Good thing I was able to join Chyng's open trip to Apo Reef and it was really fun getting to see an amazing place and meeting wonderful people along. I also tag Kate and Jay to join on this trip. 

We also joined Juxtapoz PUP again for a hike in Pico De Loro. Though again its physically challenging if you're not prepared, It was so fun hiking with a big group.

May - Treat my niece, Yana and chill down our Summer at Splash Island. 

And also visited Lucban, Quezon with Sol and Joel to join the Pahiyas Festival.

June - We finally  conquered Visayas by visiting Cebu and Bohol on our 7-day backpacking trip with Kaye and Jeck. I prepared another DIY trip for this and it was successful. 

July - I was invited by one of my long time friend to explore Ilocos Region. We explored the entire Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte and get to experience Sand Surfing.

And also had a day trip on a budget at Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban. 

August - A traveler's dream to visit Palawan happened on this month. I also took in charge of the planning and we was able to had a wonderful, budget friendly, sunburn, breathtaking moment in Puerto Princesa and El Nido

September - I can't remember any highlights happened this month. All I remember was hal and I went to a full body massage for relaxation. 

October - We celebrated Jhoy and Sol's bday and partied all night somewhere here in The Fort and celebrated Family Day here at the office. 

November - We went to Ace Water Spa in Pasig for another treat for my niece and for my Nanay.

December - We had our year end party at Dusit with the Victorian theme. And also instead of just contributing; I was able to join again the yearly gift giving with Kaye and her officemate. Lastly, we went to Zoobic Safari and Treetop Adventure with Yana. It was such an extreme way for all of us to start the Holiday season. I will blog about the Subic trip soon. :p 

And below are some of the Subic trip. 

And that’s how my year goes. And since I labeled my 2012 being on a Good Vibes, now my 2013 will start with bright ideas!

 I’ll continue my tithing, investing and will do my best to start up a generating income, be it a business or additional investment. I am so thankful that the year 2012 opened me to such great blessings like discovering “The Feast” community that welcomed me the idea of success with God’s love. And the tithing and investing that I mentioned, those just happened all because of reading Bo’s article. Though there’s a lot of financial and family issues; still we survived.

They were just a few struggles out of those hundreds to be thankful for. And for the rest; even we have so much life’s challenges; let’s remember to ask for help, believe and pray. Remember that we are just as strong as our trials in life; it’s given because we are physically and emotionally powerful to face it.

I am also looking forward with the plans Hal and I made for this year. And I also believe that God will always support us for this. I might also lessen the travels this year to be able to focus in building our funds for the future but for sure with a good planning, a budget friendly travel will always come.

 So once again, let’s welcome and start the year with a blast! Cheers!
