Mactan Island, Cebu
It was honestly hard to squeeze 2014 into a few pictures. 2013 was a roller coaster ride of emotions while this year was a smooth sailing ride of happiness. It was this year that most of the seeds I planted long ago finally blossomed and they turned out into what I prayed and hoped they would be. It was the year I graduated from college, I met the person I want to spend the rest of my days with, a dream I had since I was 13 came true and the cherry on top of it all – I got to travel my heart out. I did this last year and I shall do it again :) It’s chronically fixed so I hope you enjoy the trip down my 2014 memory lane!
January: This was my second outfit post for the year – what I wore to my last first day in college.
January: I travelled to a total of 13 different places this year and my first was our family trip to Macau.
January: My second was Cebu for SMART Sinulog and it was also the time I met Ben. It was the start of my travels to the city both for work and to visit him :)
March: My third was Bicol for #VVBook. It was a day trip just to shoot around the city!
March: I celebrated my 21st birthday with my close friends at Pico De Loro!
April: Next up was a 48 hour trip to Hong Kong for me. It’s Ben and I’s first of many this year!
May: I went to Boracay for Nestea Beach. I’ve gone to this island a couple of times before but this has got to be my favourite one :)
May: After Boracay, we finally got to announce my biggest project to date during the Candy Awards – a book cowritten with my twin!
May: My first of the many day trips I took to Cebu the whole year :) I was there for less than 24 hours!
June: We then went to another family vacation but this time to Bohol.
June: I celebrated a milestone this year and it was graduating from college :) I can’t believe I finally did it!!
June: Cebu to support the boyfriend on his new factory’s opening!
July: Then Singapore for Ben’s 27th!
August: We had our very first book signing at Glorietta and it was then followed by two more in Trinoma and SMX :)
August: Smart invited us again for Smart Kadayawan at Davao city! I went with Verniece and Ben :)
September: here comes almost three months straight of nothing but travelling to my dream destinations abroad. First up was Japan with Ben and our friends and it was where I got to see places I never thought I would see in person :) We went to Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagoya :)
October-November: And after only a few days, off to the US we go for a month! We went all over the place! Our first stop was Detroit, Virginia, Washington D.C, Balitmore, New York, Minneapolis and finally Las Vegas. I got to experience fall for the first time, got to visit my dream city and do the most cliché things and party and celebrate Halloween in Vegas.What a trip that was and my favourite to date :) We even got to stay in Narita for a night after being stranded there… which is not a bad thing :P
November: My last work trip for the year was a few days in Cebu for Salon De Rose and a weekend in Iloilo for Rumour.
December: My last Cebu trip was for Rose Pharmacy’s Christmas party and a weekend in Crimson :)
December: Lastly, my last trip was a family one in Baguio :)
Most of my favourite 2014 moments were travel related and I couldn’t be happier :) One of my main goals in life is to travel the world and I’m slowly doing that :) can’t wait for 2015! Happy New Year :)
