2016 Highlights

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I know it’s late but something I wanna talk about before I start with new stories for 2017. So  many things happened in a year and some of those things are memorable to you so what are those things that made my 2016 special? Good or bad, everything happens for a reason 🙂 Well I can say that my 2016 is not that quite bad, but not even the best either 😀

And by the way—- (belated) HAPPY NEW YEAR! 😀

Concerts: There are only 2 concerts for 2016 that I have attended. I was poor. I cannot accommodate all XDD

So the start of 2016 was very exciting for me since August 2015, it was announced that ONE OK ROCK will be performing in Manila and that will be on 19th of January. THAT WAS MY BIRTHDAY HOLYMOTHERSHIP! And of course, I was waiting for them to come, finally it happened and I have to watch them. I DID. IT WAS MY BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!!! I didn’t took much pictures but I wanna share you guys the precious videos I had. 3 WORDS: THEY ARE AWESOOOOMMEEE!!!

There you have 🙂 As you can see I am so overwhelmed and i sing till my lungs cried out. I’m so sorry XDD I simply love them XDD

The next was BTS’ Epilogue in Manila. This wasn’t really planned but until I was so hooked to them in 2016. I’ve known them since 2015 but wasn’t a hardcore fan. It was a struggle for me to idolize young idol groups because I love oppas’ more XD Buuuuuttt it happened and I fell in love with them HAHAHA! Like the same thing happened to me to Super Junior XDD They got me real hard. So I went to their concert for healing and to move on. I took VIP since all lower tickets are sold-out. I’ve got no choice. I really had to see them XDD This was July 30th 😀

Travel: I also have only two major travels and 3 dayhike mountains for the year. My Pahiyas Experience and Puerto Galera experience have been blogged here, you can just check it out again for more detailed story 🙂 The 3 mountains I’ve visited last year were Mt. Daraitan, Mt. Pinatubo and Mt. Binicayan. I was planning before to have at least 1 mountain per month but I wasn’t able to do it 🙁 Anyways, still looking forward for more travels and hikes! 😀

Work: So probably here is the biggest change that happen in my 2016. To make my story short, I resigned last August 2016 exactly in my 5 years of work and went to a new one. I had struggles and I know for myself I needed a change not just an outlet. It was hard because I’ve been in that company for so long and I’ve created a lot of memories and friends. I grew and learned a lot. But that time, I’ve made up my mind, I had my priorities. I was struggling as well and I decided. I am still thankful to them for all those years I’ve been with. You’ll always have a special space in my heart as my very first employer and experience to the real world so thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙂

5 Years!!! Thank you!!!

Others: I’m still into Cosplays but I don’t have a new cosplay last year. Also, instead of cosplaying, I went out as a Volunteer to Cosplay Mania 😀 Thanks to a friend who recommended me 🙂 I just wanted to experience handling and managing events. To see the perspective of being behind the event 😀 LOLOLOL! It was fun! I had a lot of new experiences 🙂

Also, may I include here that last year, I came back to blogging 😀 I’ll try to be active and updated 🙂

So that’s for my 2016! It’s not that awesome you see but there are those memorable moments I love to treasure 🙂 I’m looking forward to 2017, better than 2016 please!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Haha, I had a year-in-review post on my drafts too but I hesitated on posting it because it’s too late for me I think. Besides, I already had my first post for January up on my blog, it would be weird to post a new entry about 2016. Lol! I wish I had posted it first 😛

    It’s so awesome that you went hiking in lots of places. You must be really athletic! 🙂 I read your travel posts and the photos you took are beautiful 😀 Here’s to a better 2017!

    1. Oh! I guess it’s too late then if you have started with 2017! XD Next year probably? XD

      Naaahhh, im not athletic. I just have determination XD AHAHAHAA!

      Thanks for reading! Let’s hope for our fruitful 2017 ahead! Cheers!
