finally…

2008 has come to an end. i thank you Lord for this year and for all the blessings you have given me. what a fruitful year it has been…

it is so nice to be back again to my hometown Batac. it’s been a year since i visited my place.

gosh, i soooo miss this place! after spending every afternoon at the Riverside or empanadaan i also got to see highschool and elementary friends. ito lang kasi ang natatanging nightlife ng mga taga Batac kaya dito madalas nagkakatagpo tagpo ang mga pipol.

 my days would never complete without going to places here at ilocos. ako at ang pag-ibig ko ay nabigyang pagkakataong magpunta sa mga natatanging lugar ng paoay at currimao… turista ang drama namin…

 moreover, i also had a chance na pumasyal sa pagudpud with some friends… thou nakapagtampisaw ako pero di ako tumagal sa tubig dahil sa sobrang lamig…

my december wouldn’t be complete without celebrating the christmas with my family. we had our noche buena, devotional time, and gift giving. i am in charge of the pesto, mj (next to me) was in charge of creamcheese cake, and our bunso myrtle was in charge of graham cake.

lunch of december 25, visitors came to attend the 25th wedding anniversary of my mom and dad. we were really blessed with the presence of the people who have shared a great part to our family in the past years.

the night of 25 was a moment for my little sister celebrating her 18th birthday. o di ba padebut debut ang lola mo.

bago pa magend ang year, another celebration was held because its my dads bday, dec 27. my family with kuya vinz and jaypee spent the day at ravenden’s grill and catering, laoag city. grabe the food was so great, ang sarap esp the kare-kare, but nothing is greater sa pamilyang magkakasama with special guests pa di ba?

haaay wat more can i ask for… sobrang bonggang bongga ang 2008 ko. salamat sa inyo for making my life colorful as it is. now im kissing goodbye to 2008 and embracing 2009, hoping for a better and brighter future for me, my family, my extended families, friends, and all the readers out there. for me, 2009 is a year of promise and a year of hope.

    Are you sick of making the same resolutions year after year that you never keep? Why not promise to do something you can actually accomplish? Here are some resolutions that you can use as a starting point.

    Here’s NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION YOU CAN KEEP
    1. Gain weight. At least 30 pounds.
    2. Stop exercising. Waste of time.
    3. Read less. Makes you think.
    4. Watch more TV. I’ve been missing some good stuff.
    5. Procrastinate more. Starting tomorrow.
    6. Not date any of the Baywatch cast.
    7. Spend more time at work, surfing with the T1.
    8. Take a vacation to someplace important: like, to see the largest ball of twine.
    9. Not jump off a cliff just because everyone else did.
    10. Stop bringing lunch from home: I should eat out more.
    11. Not have eight children at once.
    12. Get in a whole NEW rut!
    13. Start being superstitious.
    14. Personal goal: bring back disco.
    15. Not wrestle with Jesse Ventura.
    16. Buy an ‘83 Eldorado and invest in a really loud stereo system.
    17. Get the windows tinted. Buy some fur for the dash.
    18. Speak in a monotone voice and only use monosyllabicwords.
    19 . Only wear jeans that are 2 sizes too small and use a chain or rope for a belt.
    20. Spend my summer vacation in Cyberspace.
    21. Not eat cloned meat.
    22. Create loose ends.
    23. Get more toys.
    24. Get further in debt.
    25. Not believe politicians.
    26. Break at least one traffic law.
    27. Not drive a motorized vehicle across thin ice.
    28. Avoid transmission of inter-species diseases.
    29 . Avoid airplanes that spontaneously drop 1000 feet.
    30. Not swim with piraanhas or sharks.
    31. Associate with even worse business clients.
    32. Spread out priorities beyond my ability to keep track of them.
    33. Wait around for opportunity.
    34. Focus on the faults of others.
    35. Never make New Year’s resolutions again.
