Cherish 2012 and Cheers to 2013

You ready for my first blog post? 

Honestly, I didn't know where to start so I decided to sum up how great my 2012 is. (I supposed this post is lengthy, so please bear with me. I really missed blogging!)

 After I graduated last November ‘11, I did not accept job offers yet because I wanted some ME time to relax, have fun, enjoy Christmas vacation and experience life like a BUM. My parents granted my wish, so I decided to make 01.02.2012 my official start date. YAY! Thanks to Chikka for welcoming me to the Corporate World with warmth and open arms!

It was exactly 29th day of January last year when I was starstruck-ed ★ by Kimberly Sue Yap Chiu and Alexander Xian Cruz Lim Uy during their StarStudio Autograph Signing at Trinoma Cinema Lobby. My sister and I prepared a lot for this event and indeed, we enjoyed it because we had the opportunity to chit-chat with KimXi, kiss them cheek-to-cheek and have our magazines signed.

Yeeeeeeey! Such a dream come true! 

So near yet so far. . . *lub dub lub dub*

O M G! This is it! ♥

We gave KimXi a little token of love and appreciation!

I hope they love the collage we made especially for them!

The Collage

kilig much! ♥ We really did E N J O Y! Thanks StarStudio!

But prior to that event, we also attended My Binondo Girl Fans Day at SM North Edsa Skydome to get a glimpse of our dearest KIMXI!

Yeah, I came with my whole family! Hello to the long line of waiting!

The only ticket you need to see the MBG Stars! 
It's a digital album with 5 songs from our favorite teleserye!

 KIMXI singing "Ako'y Sa'yo Lamang" ♥

BONUS we got from the fans day!

In 2012, our thesis was qualified to join IMECS (International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists) in Hong Kong and PCSC (Philippine Computing Science Congress). YAY! After all the sacrifices, hard work and sleepless nights we had, this is something we consider, “the fruit of our labor”. Not everyone may be given this opportunity, so we offer all the glory and gratitude to our Creator.

Since I am already earning money from my first job, I got to buy gadgets that I cannot afford before. That’s good because I don’t have to ask from my parents anymore. :)

2012 also made me experience the freedom and fun I've never felt before. Yeah! I admit it, my parents are super strict. When I was in high school and even in college, I never had the chance to LEGALLY go out with friends if it’s not academically related. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against my parents. I do understand where they’re coming from and I know that it’s only for my own good. So if your parents are like mine, never hate them because the happiness you will get if you abide by their rules is so worth it after all. They are not “babying” you just for their own sake BUT they only want the best for you. I know one day, you’ll understand what I am talking about and just like me, you will thank them for bringing you up that way.

  I learned how to play billiards, a little.

With my BFFs. Very candid! ♥

Bowling as well . . .

After 4 years, I got to go back to Enchanted Kingdom with my family to celebrate my brother’s 8th birthday. EK has never changed except for the new rides that made it more amusing to public. There were a lot of people because it’s Christmas, though it never stopped me and my cousins to enjoy and have fun!


Who will ever forget the Grand Carousel?

Ready to Up, Up and Away! 

Hello Balloons!

Truly, CHRISTMAS is best celebrated with FAMILY ♥

Yes, we also ride the EKstreme Tower Ride 

Another 2012 highlight is the day I got my Non-Professional driver’s license and the birth of my baby, Vanilla. I felt so lucky because this happen in just one day! Vanilla is my parents’ graduation gift for me and I did promise them to pay for the monthly loan since I’m now working.
(See? This is the REWARD I’m trying to tell you in #5).

Had a 3-day celebration with family, friends and loved ones!

I celebrated my pre-birthday with the Quiros Family at David's Tea House & Hot Pot.

Meet my Mom. She's also a July celebrator!

And Frutti Froyo for dessert! 

I also got the chance to celebrate with my family and my beloved at the same time on my exact birth date! I only dreamed of this when I was a little girl and now it came true. I’m so glad that my family (especially my Dad) accepted Ivan and welcomed him to our home. That was such a perfect gift on my 20th!

Lunch at Max's Restaurant with my dearest parents. I felt like I'm their one and only child! Hehe!

The best-est thing that happened in my 2012. 
The Prince Charming and/or the Knight in Shining Armor I read in fairy tales has finally found me. 
*corny but truelaloo* 

He’s not perfect neither I am but we complement each other by absolutely loving and accepting each other though our flaws and imperfections.

He’s my bestfriend, my long lost brother and my partner in crime. 

(via Instagram)
 We have known each other for only 4 years but I think I’ve known him forever.

One of my dreams is to travel the world BUT I think I should start with my birthland first. 
So welcome to my “It’s more fun in the Philippines 2012”.

Philippines has the best tourist spots and we, Filipinos must be proud of it! 
Travel around Philippines and I'm glad if you'll share a comment below!

A lot of people were shocked when I fringe my hair into the famous “Mikay” bangs
They asked me why or what happened or do I have problems, etc. 
I just answered them, “I wanna give it a try and experiment with my hair.”

Wasn't it successful? Hihihi! The bangs style fits me because I believe it will. So if you want to try something different and you have doubts, BELIEVE and there is no harm in trying something new.

REMEMBER: Always dare to be different but be yourself, still!

And to end 2012 with a bang, here’s my confession! In the age of 20, I already have two babies! LOL! Here are my cutie patootie babies! Scroll down please!

Pink Unicorn! ♥

KC is a gift from The Boyfriend on Hearts Day!

Baby Alive!

While Klynn is a Christmas gift from The Boyyfriend!

And I guess...
They both love each other as SISTERS! ♥ (I sleep with them)

And that’s it. (Sorry for the lengthy post.) I hope my first legit post inspire you to live life to the fullest and create your own list of great things that happened in your 2013. I’ll be happy if you’ll share it with me! :)

I’m looking forward for the best and happiest this 2013 and I promise to live my belle la vie to the fullest!
