Let me tell you why this year was so special.
Years ago I wrote this on blog an entry on 30 goals I want to achieve by the time I turn 30 (link: https://boyinplaid.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/meet-a-miss-uni/) — I’m still far from completing that list, wow, ang dami kong nagawa this 2015!
#2: Presenting my Instax wall ~ organized by places I’ve been to, important occassions, important people!
#4 & #19: I finally did it! After years of contemplating, and trying to escape traditions, I spent my birthday alone – in Bangkok!
#10 & #11: Gift giving 2015 was a success + I finally quit nail-biting!
#17: Went to a couple of countries this year!
- There’s Thailand with Pattaya and well #BKKFCK
- Singapore for something work-related #SingaFOUR
- And then back again for #SEAGapore!
- Can’t forget #CambodYEAH, visiting Siem Reap & Phnom Penh
- And then ending the year in travel with #HongKrew
#18: Didn’t realize it, but I actually dreamt of climbing mountains ~ 2015 introduced me to trekking, and initially hated it, but eventually loved it. Climbed Pico, Maculot & Pulag this year!
#26: I almost accomplished this one! But was turned back because the royal family apparently was going to use the airspace. But I will definitely be back to do this one!
And while there are memories from the year not part of that list that have made 2015 too awesome — leading that #PUSO2019 campaign, visiting relatives in Iloilo again after 10 years, officially becoming an athlete after making it to the badminton team, and getting my dog pregnant (4 puppies on the way!) — there’s just this certain feeling of accomplishment with ticking off to-dos.
4 years left, 20 goals to go!
