I didn’t publish any post in 2018 and it’s not for lack of trying. I just couldn’t get myself to write something meaningful. So to start the new year, I thought it might be interesting to look back at last year, write about things where I succeeded and where I fell short.
Issa and I flew from Cebu to Manila to watch Joey Ayala’s concert Mandiriwa. This checks a lot firsts. Our first concert together. Our first Joey Ayala concert together. Our first intimate concert, intimate in a sense that it’s on a smaller venue and we’re closer to the artists.
I turned 32 years old today. 32. What a stranger number. 25. How would the 2-year old me look at me? He might just end up asking for food? Will he even play with me?
Sinulog is Cebu's biggest festival. It's a weekend of heavy traffic, crazy street parties and, of course, the grand Sinulog parade. The parade draws tens of thousands of attendees and the streets of Cebu get filled with a slow-moving ocean of people.
Issa and I went to Siargao to experience some of the things that the island offers. It was a short visit of two days but enough to experience some of the island's top destinations.
Whenever I'm out of the daily grind, I take snapshots of things. These are photos...forever unmapped.
While in CDO for the holidays, the family decided to visit the Divine Mercy Shrine in Misamis, Oriental. It was both to attend a holiday Mass and as a form of thanksgiving for my sister's speedy recovery and father’s 60th birthday.
