My January to December 2013

2013 was a great year. I thank God for allowing me to survive 2013 and for giving me a wonderful year.  Here are the things that I did last year.

January ~ My First Boracay Experience… It was a pre-birthday celebration.

May is the continuation of our Summer Adventure.  We went to Seagrass Beach Resort at Samal Island.  It was our first time to go there and we surely had fun.

In September my high school friend Macao who lives in Singapore arrived with her husband.  This is one of those rare time when High School friends gather together and enjoy each others company.



In October, I was chosen as one of the five Davao bloggers to eat for free at Vikings Davao.

November was a surprising month coz’ i got an invitation to go to Hongkong then Macau.  It was an unplanned trip but nevertheless enjoyable and very memorable.

It was also during the month of November that the Philippines was hit by the Super Typhoon Yolanda.  Me and my friends tried our best to do our part in helping our countrymen.  We went to the DPWH warehouse where we helped packing the relief goods. I also bought the BangonPh shirt from Cebu which part of its profit will go to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.

I was very blessed last year. God is so good. I may have encountered problems and trials but there are more reasons for me to be thankful for.  I hope 2014 would be as good as 2013 or even better.  Let us all remember to be always thankful for all the blessings. Let’s also enjoy the Life that God has given us.  God Bless everyone!  Cheers to Life and Blogging! 😀
