Year End Special!

It's been said that all good things must come to an end. So does a good year. 2012 has been my most exciting and adventure-packed year so far. A lot has happened. And a lot is to be thankful for. And all thanks be to God for the blessings, for my family and friends, for the love and for the strength.

Now just before this wonderful year ends, I want to do a not-so-quick recap.. I have to warn you that this is a bit photo overload. :)



Places I've been to.. Ngayong taon, naging super galaera ako. "Ubusan ng yaman" nga ang peg namin ng friends ko. Mostly because I really wanted to travel kahit noon pa pero part din ay dahil na-brokenhearted ako. Oo, eto naging way ko para maka-move on, lol! At dahil moved on na moved on na ko, kailangan bawas-bawasan na ang kalalaboy, magastos!


Underground cemetery and the shoe haven

My first time in the country's summer capital!

My 26th birthday celebration!

With fun people, mostly I met for the first time
Beautiful churches and breathtaking beach

Such a clean and homey city

Bonding with friends.. Bukod sa mga major trips e madami pang ibang eksenang naganap. Siyempre, salamat sa aking mga good old, tried and tested, true friends for making every bit of it memorable. Especially ang ELF at si Zaicy who'd been with me hindi lang sa galaan pati sa inuman este hindi lang sa good times pati na sa bad times!


MOA Eye
Na-haggard sa byahe kaya sinumpang di babalik sa MOA ng at least 1 year

Logos Hope
The Floating Library

Nature-tripping nun birthday ni Joana

Birthday celebration naman ni Lori

Kids at heart!

New things I've tried.. Mga bagay na hindi ko inakala na magawa ko pero I did. Lalo na ang surfing dahil di naman ako swimmer.







New friends.. I guess this is the best thing about blogging, you gain new friends. Bonus pa pag na-meet sila in person. First na-meet si Papa Empi na shy type pa nun una pero later na-realize ko na same level kami ng kabaliwan! Kaya naging close kami agad agad. Then sina twin sis Arline at Hash and the rest of the EB babes, haha. At super thank you din sa lahat ng nagpadala saken ng kung anik-anik, you don't know how much I appreciate those.






Theo, Arline, Me, Empi, Jaid, Bino, Mar, Hash and Zaicy

Family Gatherings.. Ofcourse, ang mga pinakamahahalagang tao sa buhay ko. Super thankful ako kasi lahat kami healthy. Mula sa aking sweet na sweet pa rin na parents (na minsan nagtatampuhan na parang mag-jowa pa lang, haha) hanggang sa ika-11 kong pamangkin. And I always pray na sana dumami pa yung years na magkasama-sama kami tuwing birthdays at Christmas.


Mama and Papa
Ang magulo naming pamilya :)
Nakaalis na sina Ate at Kuya ko kasama yung mga pamangkin ko. Dun sila mag-new year sa kani-kanilang bahay. OA lang pero namiss ko agad sila. Biglang tahimik dito sa bahay. Kakapanibago bigla. Pero andito pa rin naman ang makukulet na sina Chin at Jaydrex at si Joelle. Kaya happy pa rin.

Isa sa mga namimiss ko.. boy pick-up a.k.a. my 2 year old nephew, Zen!




 
In a few hours, Lucky 2013 na! Happy New Year everyone! Boom!! :D
