Goodbye, 2012!

December 31, 2012 Tsina 1 Comments

So that's it, goodbye 2012! I had a good year. :)
I started my 2012 with our Mindanao leg. We had so much fun beach bumming in White Island (Camiguin), sorta-flying in Bukidnon and rafting in Cagayan de Oro. It was an awesome trip with my favorite travel buddies. :)

Last March, I left my second project (and my life at night :P). I was with the project for 11 months, and I made lots of friends here. We still go out during the weekends for coffee (more like coffee after few drinks in Central :P) I went with them in a quick Puerto Galera trip, and David Cook concert.

In the same month, I was rolled-in to another project. I was sent to Singapore on this one for a short training. This project provided me lots of career opportunities. Since I worked in the client site, I had a chance to work face-to-face with the clients. I became more careful on my dealings with people, and learned to live up with our tagline, High Performance. Delivered. Hihi. Seriously, I think I'm better prepared for more challenging projects in the future. :)

For my summer getaways, aside from the Puerto Galera trip, I went with Apple and Dwin to Pamarta Bali. Infinity pool love. :P

I had very tough time managing school, despite that, I'm proud to say that I passed our comprehensive examination. We took the exam last August, and got the result by the end of September. Yiheeee! :P

Since summer is forever (Peram ng line mo, Apple!) we went to Calaguas last October. Finally a dream come true. Hihi. It was a long hours of travel, but oh so worth it. :)

December. After 4 years and 5 months with my company, I finally decided to leave. I am more than thankful for the opportunities that the company provided me. I had the best managers/mentors, and I look forward in working for this company in the future. I just owe them everything. :) 

Come January, you'll find me in the streets of Makati. :) I'm hoping for a great year ahead. :)

Oh la la, 2013!

I know, it's quite early for any 2013 related post. But I'm getting really crazy this minute. 2013 is scaring the sh*t out of me!! Okay, school first - I'm currently taking up 3 electives. I have classes from 6pm - 9pm on Wednesdays and 1pm - 7pm on Saturdays. My Wednesday subject requires a sorta mini-thesis. My Saturday subjects require several group papers + few individual papers + class reporting. I have an INC on one of my subjects which requires me to take a final exam. To top it all, my thesis is still under revision!! I HAVE TO COMPLETE THESE IN ONE SEM. 

Hmmm, for work .. This might require a lot of adjustments. I'll be leaving my comfort zone! I might make kwento once it's official! :) This + school is making me crazy. 

I know. I can do this. I've been working hard for both school and work the past years. I should be able to handle these (trying to convince self). 

Hmm. Okay, I'll treat my brother and myself to a Hongkong trip on my birthday next year. We'll both be graduating! This should force me to be a superwoman!! :D At least, that's something to look forward to. We can do this! AKO PA! :P

I TRIED Surfing in Bagasbas

December 03, 2012 Tsina 0 Comments

Okay, so the operative word is TRIED! Hihi!

I am not a morning person, and it surprised me that I was able to wake up early in Calaguas. Not sure if it was because I slept in a tent, but I had a good sleep nonetheless! We spent the morning beach bumming. I think I could add that skill in my resume - beach bumming! Hihi.
I'm in Calaguas! :P
By the way, Dwin created this the day before. Galing niya noh? :) We saw few other people photo op-ing with this! :)
And this was us in the morning at Calaguas!
Galing ni Dwin! :)

 I forced Juni to be my photographer at that time. I wanted a cover photo worthy picture! Wahaha! Kidding! :P
Yihee!
Kailangan talaga sumingit teh? :P
At around 10 am, we left the island, and headed for our destination - Bagasbas! Lucky for me, the waves weren't as crazy as the day before. But unfortunately, we still reached the port at around 1pm. We were told to expect a 2-hr boat ride only. We rode a jeepney to transfer us to a bus. The bus brought us in Bagasbas. We reached the place at around 2pm!  We took a very late lunch at the Surfer's Inn. I was already being masungit at this time! 

We went in the beach for our surfing session, which was 400Php/hour. Okay. So I haven't tried real surfing yet, and from our group, only Juni is quite the surfer. He frequents Baler! :)
Ready or not, let's surf!
They gave us a short lesson on surfing - the do's and the don'ts! The instructor made me try to stand in the surfboard following the steps he told me, and then he decided that I'm a goofy. So you see, you'd be either a goofy (right foot forward) or a regular (left foot forward). 
Regular or goofy? :)
Practice muna! 
Okay. I have to be honest! I wasn't able to stand on the surfboard! Sigh! In the middle of my session, the instructor told me that it seems like I'm a regular. Well, maybe because I was just copying him when he was giving instructions. I'm such a bad student! 
Kawawang bata! :P
Okay, so we can't be good at everything, right? :P

We returned in the Surfer's Inn to freshen up, we had to be ready by 6pm. Unfortunately, we left the place at around 8pm. The bus left at around 9pm! Well, the good thing with that was we had few hours of bonding and photo ops! :)

Say Cheese! :)
But that was another round of long hours in the bus! We reached Manila at around 6am! I still had few hours of sleep before I reported for work on that day. I'm such a model employee! :P

It was long hours of travel, and not the most comfortable trip I had, but believe me, Calaguas is so worth it! :P
