So here goes my not-so-late goobye 2009 post. =)
I know this wouldn’t be the last time I would look back to 2009. It wasn’t the first and it wouldn’t be the last. 2009 wasn’t as crazy as 2008 but it’s wonderful like all the other years in my life. The people I met and have been friends with are invaluable.
In a nutshell, 2009 was a year of:
- opportunities to explore new things
- frequent hospital visits
- getting in touch with friends and old classmates
- happiness and love
- love-hate relationship with **
- and a whole lot of learning
January last year I got to be a lead actress on a film Kuya Bunso made by my dear friend Mica. It was the first time that I did a role and woah! Was it really hard! I already directed three films in my young life and never had I imagine how difficult it is to act. Before I would always get frustrated when my actors won’t deliver what I wanted for the film, but now.. I know.
Also, January, I met an accident. I got hit my a flying bottle.. a broken soda bottle.. on my right knee, and I have to undergo surgery so they can remove bits of glass on my knee cap. Ouch, I know. I was confined and wasn’t able to walk properly for a week. Aaron that time wasn’t the boiffie yet but he took care of him. Really sweet, ayt? My bestfriends Mitch and Louis were there too.
February was an exciting month at work. I had my first project and the results was great. Also, Boiffie took me to a wonderful (and pricey) V date – we dine at Pepato GB3, watched Push, grabbed coffee at CBTL and went to party with Mica and other bloggers at a Single’s Party night somewhere in Makati.
The first time Boiffie and I went out of town was on the first weekend of February. We went to Baguio to relieve the stress and trauma brought about by the accident I just had. The long bus ride to Baguio, the time we spent there, and the ride home brought Boiffie and I closer together. =’>
Then March came and we conquered Mindanao. Boiffie and I had a 4D3N Camiguin-Cagayan De Oro trip with his college friends. It was the first time I was able to travel by air, by land, and by water all in the same day! Camiguin white beach is really a beauty! It was the highlight of the trip for me! Unfortunately, on the last day I got really sick so I wasn’t able to enjoy the rapids that is white water rafting in CDO.
April Boiffie and I had another trip somewhere in Northern Luzon. We conquered Pagudpud, Laoag and Vigan. The beaches in Pagudpud can rival the beaches in Boracay. I lubbit!! We went to Paoay Church in Laoag, hitched our way to Cape Bojeador (and lost my wallet while taking pictures), beach bummed in Saud and Blue Lagoon, ate at Cafe Leona (Vigan’s finest), had a walkin-after-midnight at Calle Crisologo and a lot more.
May was full of anxiety and not much at all exciting. It was the month I presented my results and achievements for the first six months of my stay in the company. June was also uneventful, or maybe it was, I just can’t remember it right now haha. But seriously, other than the Boiffie’s birthday, this month was uneventful.
Boiffie’s birthday was memorable. It was the first time I went greater lengths with regards to efforts and surprises. I prepared a series of surprises for Boiffie and I almost made him cry.. poor little guy, he had no idea what I planned for his birthday.
Then came July, the getaway to Palawan with my teammates.
And then August! My birth month! Woooot this time it’s Boiffie’s turn to make my birthday a blast. And he did! He gave me a classic Anne Klein wrist watch and a weekend getaway in Tagaytay: Spa at Sonya’s Garden, dinner at Buon Giorno, party at Kontiki bar, picnic in Picnic grove, roadtrip to Caleruega, lunch and cheesecake at Bag of Beans. Melai and JC were also with us that time.
September I went home to Cebu for the first time in ages. Woooot excited much to see the grandfolks. Also I met some CBS people. It was also a getaway with Mica, Ada, Jehz, Winston, and Van and my first time to travel alone by air.
December Last getaway before the 2009 ended: beach bumming and food tripping at Canyon Cove in Nasugbu Batangas and at Leslie’s in Tagaytay, with Boiffie, Paolo and Mark.
And then the rest of the year was history – days in between days.
Excited much to create new experiences for 2010. =)
