2012 Baket Least: Year-end Review! –Good Enough! :)

Kaboom! Happy new year!! Another year has ended, ambilisss!!! Let us see how much I’ve accomplished during the year 2012. Parang kelan lang nung nag-post ako ng 2012 Bucket List ko nung Janaury 1 oh ta’s sabay post ng mid-year review nung June!! :D

Heto na! :)

1. Take a GOOD fall (yung tipong pang-forever na! ayee!!! forever daw oh! fall head over heels, gow! :D ..hindi sa ginagawa kong laro ito, pero dapat open na’ko for anything new—bawal na martyr! :D) I am ready for a fall! ahaha!
MIDYEAR: Alaws! Anu ba yan, ang tagal kong ma-inlove (ulit) hahaha! mukhang pang-long-term goal ‘to, di kaya sa taong ito! :D Amend goal nga! :D
YEAREND: Dear heart, tibok-tibok din! :D andami mo nang pahinga, please lang! =p
Pero salamat naman sa isang taong nahuhugutan ko ng positibong inspirasyon! Yun oh! (Parehas pa din ng last year???) =p

ABTS! [Almost Brighter Than Sunshine!!!] ayee! :D

2. Go to Bali Indonesia and wear a two-piece! kung anung piece man yon, dapat dalawa! haha! B-) Need to work on my beer-belly!!! wehehe!
MIDYEAR: Working out for the July 20 Bali trip! Preysure eto! ahaha! :) labo! Can I bargain? 1 piece na lang oh, ‘di carry ilabas ang tyan! :D
YEAREND: Partly accomplished! Hiyes! Went to Bali, Indonesia last July 2012 with EYmates and other friends who were former officemates in the Ph. Yun lang, hindi ka-twopiece twopiece ang beach na napuntahan namin (ang totoo, hindi katwopiece twopiece ang katawan ko wahaha!). Nonetheless, I enjoyed the trip! :D Although my expectations were so high (dahil akala ko ay puro beach lang), natuwa naman ako sa mga temples and other spots na nabisita namin! :D

3. Pursue a UK-based or US-based audit/accounting job! hehehe! I’m looking forward to a positive response from someone :) Ipagdadasal ko ‘to, pero pag hindi ibibigay, cge lang! :D
MIDYEAR: And so I got a reply last January…kung anu man yon, sikreto! :| basta, bahala na! nag-aantay ulit ng reply ngaun.. Kinakabahan na naman ako! >:-|
YEAREND: Eto na, I’m currently preppin for my trip to (where else?!?!)… Hiyes! I’m going to work in UK ehehe! Although maraming aberya in between to achieve this goal, in the end, natupad pa din! Thank you, Lord! :D Got my certificate of sponsorship last Oct 18, 2012 (exactly a year after my first interview for this job), then I got my visa last November 28, 2012. I’m supposed to report to work on January 2, pero dahil maraming echebureche sa POEA, hayun na defer tuloy! :/ pero ayus lang, napakachallenging! Hahaha!

Bucket List 2012_#3

4. Master a new language!
MIDYEAR: Aku berjuang dengan bahasa Indonesia! Belajar beberapa kata / istilah, mudah-mudahan, akhir tahun, aku sudah menguasai bahasa! : p (Translate: I’m struggling with the Bahasa Indonesia! Learned a few words/terms, sana at end of year, master ko na! :p) —hahaha! syempre ni-google translate ko lang yan! :D
YEAREND: My Bahasa Indonesia skill is too far from mastery, but I can communicate already with the (limited) words/terms that I learned in my 11 months of stay in Jakarta! Hooray! :D

5. Sing/Perform an acoustic song upstage! woohoo! :D
MIDYEAR: Epic fail! Eh yung mag-audition nga lang sa choir, nawalan ako ng lakas ng loob, mag-solo pa kaya!? hehehe videoke na lang oh! :) Pero heto, one time nung nag-Ancol kame, ta’s may band na nagpe-play sa gilid, aba! Bigla na lang kame umepal, umakyat ng stage! Hahaha! gulat ang mga nasa stage! Ehehe!

YEAREND: Wala talaga eh, meron na’kong naisip na mga kanta eh ahaha! Pero walang pagkakataon…ay meron pala, pero I don’t have enough lakas ng loob para gawin to, grabe, shy-type as usual! Wahaha! :)

6. Compose a song for that someone special and sing it in front of him! —him (refer to #1 haha! di ba sweet???)
MIDYEAR: Para sa’n ang kanta kung walang pag-aalayan?! :( hehehe! rarrr!
YEAREND: Dependent sa katuparan ng #1, kaya wala din ‘to!

7. Get a new camera (compact with quality of an SLR; that’s good for traveling hehe) / Telephoto lens!!!
MIDYEAR: Now that I have overcome my fear of snorkeling, I’m thinking of an all-weather cam—pwede underwater! Pero dahil kuripot ako, heto nagdadal’wang isip pa din!
YEAREND: I got myself a new lens sometime in August! Hooray! Got it at a super cheap price ehehe! My haggling skills worked! =p Pero hanggang ngaun, di ko pa rin nagagamit ng todo-todo! Hehe! Hassle pala dalhin, excess baggage haha! :p

c. WATERFALLS – Ok, ang ambitious lang ng plano kong gumala sa Surigao para sa Tinuy-an Falls hehe kala mo ang daming time, slack na slack lang ang peg! :D Yung Iligan sidetrip ko naman para mapuntahan ang Tinago Falls ay epic fail! Hahaha! Pero I got the chance to see Katibawasan Falls in Camiguin hehe! Pwede na! and I also got a chance to see the I-don’t-know-the-name-of-the-falls in Sukabumi (pero sa Indonesia to, hndi sa Pinas hehe)… Yun lang, wala yung plan na mag-jump sa cliff! Hohoho! =p
