What I did last year #throwback #2012

You can read about the history of the world all you like, but to truly understand it, you have to travel to the places history has touched. 

I can say I had a good 2012 :) I have traveled to places I've never been before, I get to revisit the places I loved and I met new friends :)  Today I will be looking back on what I did last year and might as well share it to everyone. 


I went to Cagayan de Oro City all by self. I dunno what came to mind that made me go there in an instant, arrgghh my impulsiveness! tsktsktsk nobody knew I was there except of course the person I met there. hehehe But eventually I called my bff when I got there coz I can't stand the fact that I was there for that person. Am I that desperate?? But anyways, I didn't regret anything coz at least I realize that he was not meant for me. 

PS: no photos as it was a secret trip. hehehe


Leni and I spent a weekend in Tagaytay :) That was in celebration of her birthday too :) 

We also went to EK after our Tagaytay weekend :)

Lastly, we stayed at Taytay, Rizal and consequently met that gorgeous guy below. hahaha His name is Kevin and he's my cousin's brother in law. Bagay ba? hahaha

*That's my supportive aunt below and Mr. Gorgeous mom and nieces :)

MARCH 2012

Guess what? I'm back to the city of golden  friendship again. hahaha Yeah seems like I'm loving the south :) It was the end of March and I think we deserve a break from school and work. It was pretty perfect as it was Orly's graduation too in XU and at the same time Keke's birthday (Leni's younger brother)

It was one unforgettable visit as well as I gained a new friend by the name of Teddy Llagas (si mahal na bertud)  :)

APRIL 2012

This may sound funny but I eventually spent my holy week in CDO and Bali. Yeah right, I have completely fallen in love with the place. It really feels like home. 

@Limketkai celebrating Vani's bday

we visited XU too :)

On Easter, we went to BUKIDNON! yey first time :) We went to Dahilayan Adventure park to try the longest zipline in Asia :)

MAY 2012

It's my brother's birth month and its summer time so we why not celebrate it at the beach huh?? 

There you go, with my chix sisters :) they are my Brother's closest friends.

You'll never guess, I was back in CDO again on that month. hahaha what's the occasion? It was the christening of our lil boy Thirdy. He's Teddy's cute nephew and first born of my Mareng Mj and Pare Thadeus :)

Another thing, it was also the homecoming celebration of St. Rita's College. Leni's alma mater, so might as well attend it nalang. hahaha I was really intrigued about there homecoming as I heard a lot about it. So there you go, ako na ang nakiki join sa batch 2005 :) yooohooo!

JUNE 2012

Who says summer is over? It was during that time that we went to BORACAY baby! :) 

After spending a weekend in Boracay, we dropped by the doll house in Kalibo, maximizing the time as our flight back was via Kalibo - Cebu. We also spent a night there but it was a bit creepy. hahaha Seriously the town is soooo laid back that households and even establishments closes @ 8 PM. Imagine that?! hehehe

July 2012

Due to my travels, I missed home. So I decided to go home and have some time with my family. It was also So. Leyte day so we went to Maasin City to watch the annual Karatong festival.

We also visited the shrine of Mama Mary in Maasin City

 August 2012

I've been travelling every month so I decided to rest for a while coz I might not have enough money for food. hahaha

September 2012 

Probably you've guessed right now where I was on this month, yes! I'm back in CDO. hahaha i know i know, but it was an unplanned trip. As you may now, Leni has been a part of my life already and she lost her grandfather I feel the need to be there to pay my respects to her grandfather.

At the plane, I met Marie my bro's friend. She is one of the HR of Bo's coffee and she offered breakfast for free :)

Since I was there, I took time to see my godson Thirdy. Look at him, isn't he lovely?

we also had short chat with Teddy as he was there too for obvious reasons, he lives there. hahahaa

Coincidentally, it was also the house warming / blessing of my Mare Dimple and Pare Jan's house :) so there we are :)

October 2012

This time it's a new destination. I'm so excited because its my first time :) Hello durians! Hello Davao City =)

November 2012

It's rest month again. hehehe have to save up for the upcoming Christmas =)

December 2012 

It's Christmas month :) The most lovely month of the year and I guess my favorite too. Not to mention people are richer, you know what I mean :) hahaha Since I've been busy going to the south in the previous months, time for me to go North this time. :) This may sound crazy but one of the reasons why I decided to accompany Ate Salve and Ate Ruby was because I wanted to see my childhood crush in flesh. hahaha Another thing, I've been interested to see those dancing lights in Ayala triangle. Yeah, I've always been a child at heart :)

and I finally met papa Sam. #dreamcometrue #lol #kilig

I also met my other fafa.. hahaha recognized him? :D

after all, it's all about living the good life :) #true

Of course I'm gonna conclude my dora the explorer moments with my beloved family :) We just celebrated Christmas here in Cebu. 

Me and my siblings :)

wooohhhoooo what a year! Thankful for that awesome and wonderful year! #happiness #love #ilovetotravel #adventure #bonding #blissful

love, peace and happiness,

cHen C. :)
