HELLO DECEMBER! Wow, that fast? I recall that around this time last year, I was busy doing some last minute preparations for my trip to the UK. Instead of buying new clothes for the winter season, I shopped for Filipino goodies like Lucky Me Pansit Canton, Boy Bawang, Likas Papaya Soap, Cebu Dried Mangoes, Goldilocks Polvoron and so on. My friends also prepared a mini-despedida for me. I didn’t really know what to expect and I don’t have concrete plans at all. You know, the possibility of me staying there for good and meeting my now teen brother Carlo after many years.
I passed that challenge already and right now, I am here in a coffee shop somewhere in Dagupan City waiting for my high school classmates whom I haven’t seen in years. Â Yikes. I’m nervous. Weird feeling is weird LOL.
When I wrote my last blog entry, I was a bit emotional (as always). I guess I am now in the stage wherein reality about the future hits me. I cannot really blame some members of the family if they want me to embrace stability over my recent lifestyle. I am ok with living on a daily basis, but I also have my mom and brother and being the eldest in the family means I have responsibilities. I am not turning my back on that, but I simply want to enjoy life as a single individual. I know that life will be different once I get into a serious relationship or motherhood. I know my priorities and one of which is being happy with no regrets. So yeah, I travel and eat a lot!
December will be one happy travel month for me. Like I mentioned earlier, I am here in Dagupan City now. I might go back to Lingayen (again?!) and visit Urdaneta City too. I will visit Tagaytay for an overnight stay next week and I am finally visiting Moalboal and Bantayan in Cebu! Beach time with the Bagets <3
Another good news that came up a few days ago is related to the Philippine Blog Awards 2011, which is scheduled tomorrow night. I am nominated in two categories: Best Personal Blog (second year na! thanks weee) and Best Single Post for “A Reunion Story“. I am honored to be a finalist. That is enough for me already. Winning an award is a bonus though hehe 😀 My interview segment in the Podcast Sessions with SoloFlightEd is also nominated under the Top Videocast/Podcast Category! If you’re bored right now, you can listen to the interview. I’m happy with the recognitions. Thanks to PBA and my readers!
I have bigger plans for my travel blog SENYORITA.NET. I would like to thank those who have been giving me tips and advice on how to improve my blog. You all know who we are. 😀
It is OK to be sentimental at times, but you should also look at the bright side of things and be thankful because you’re blessed. Maligayang Pagbati to all!
