Goals For 2011

Sharing my conversation with an ex-officemate..
Me: Why did you end your 10-year relationship with your ex-GF?
Ex-Officemate: Chyng, the girl is like you. Ang dami nyang gustong gawin that she cant settle down.
Me: (taas-kilay) Wow ha, may ganung comparison?! 0_o

2010 is such a turning point in my life as I've done things I never thought I could do. Im very thankful that God gave me good health, courage, and the will to do those things. As they say, time flies when you are enjoying. True enough. I barely had a dull and boring moment because of these "things that I look forward to." Thank you Lord for giving me new cravings every now and then.

Again, a goal without a plan is just a wish. So Im labeling these items as goals, and not wishes. Here's the list of my goals for 2011.

Another Life Insurance. Yes I have already one. This is provided by my employer but it only has limited coverage. I feel the need to have another one with full coverage. Besides it's a form of having myself (and family) insured and make savings at the same time. (hello Caribbean cruise in the future, yay!)

SSS Loan. Been working for over 3 years but I haven't tried getting any SSS benefit. Now it's time to try it.

Attend a Local Festival. In my 26 years of existence, I haven't witnessed any festival in the country. Not even the most anticipated Penagbenga, Pahiyas, and Hot-Air Balloon festival. I want to feel the vibe of being part of a colorful and lively parade. (open for joiners)

Organize an Outreach / Travel For A Cause. Im very biased to orphans. I believe that poor families and out of school youth are still luckier compared with someone who doesn't have anyone at all. This year, I want to make it more than the usual gift giving in an orphanage. I just don't have the ideas yet. (suggestions are welcome)

New Job. I don't really see myself staying in that company for another year. =(

Good Physical Condition. In 3 straight years, I always have problems whenever I had the results of my Annual Physical Exam in the office. I think this item is more of a wish than a task.

Batad. This is where the life insurance is essential! Hihi I've been wanting to experience the best of Northern Luzon has to offer. Dong Ho marketed this place to me so well that Im pursuing the trip even without him. (i promise to have a tandem trip with you)

Balicasag. I've been to Bohol 2 years ago but skipped this spot. I was not interested until last year when I fell in love with snorkeling. This year Im going back just to witness the beauty of underwater world in Balicasag.

Bali. One of the most raved about places in South East Asia. I will kill my curiosity and find out the secret of Balinese culture. (sorry but it's not open for joiners, I already chose my companion for this trip)

El Nido. To experience another world class beach in Pinas, wearing a new set of swimwear. Sana may mag-donate! ^_^ (this trip is open for joiners)

Siquijor. The island of fire. I know a few people who labeled this place as the best spot in Pinas. Very interesting. (open for joiners)

Shangri-La Mactan. Splurging once in a while wont hurt, right? ^_^

Scuba Diving. I told you, I'm not a beach loving person anymore. I want to be where the fish and corals are! (very open for joiners, specially for beginners like me)

Singapore. Anyone who wants to welcome me in his/her apartment during my short stay? Or anyone who's kind-hearted to sponsor a dinner, coffee over the bay, or Universal Studio Passes / Sentosa tickets? You'll be making me delighted and extremely blessed on my 27th birthday! ^_^


This is a shorter list as compared with last year. This time, I'll be more open to interesting invites and spontaneous trips. Kindly reach me at chyngreyes@gmail.com

I have to disagree with my ex-officemate. I maybe always craving for some things or I may loook very busy doing a lot of things, but trust me, I want to have my own family as much as everyone does. Nakikipag-date naman ako, depende sakin at pag may time. Talking about priorities. ^_^

We want to join you on your Siquijor trip. Sana Sept/Oct 2011. :)

docgelo said...

di kasama penang? hahaha...
rob will visit me here on march; sama kayo ni dyan! hasik tayo lagim dito, hehehe...
anyway, gusto ko din umattend sa pahiyas, may 15 yun di ba? di ko lang alam kung pwede sa work schedule ko... singapore is also on my list, pero what happened to me on 2010 were mostly unplanned and spontaneous. so when it comes to travel, siguro biglaan na lang din this year for me. *parang may budget!* hahaha

Robbie said...

Batad! It's a very unique experience. Spartan talaga. Best time to visit during the summer para lush yung terraces.

Back in college, I organized an outreach for my school org. Instead of having games, we taught the kids basic math, english, and art and dance classes. It was for the entire afternoon, and then afterwards may presentation yung art and dance classes. Sa morning we had free medical check-ups for the kids. I think this would be a nice thing to do din. =)

Sana free ako during your next outreach, volunteer ulit ako. :D

yayyadanda said...

bakit walang goal ang love life?

gillboard said...

andami mong goals for 2011 lalo na ang pagpunta sa other places. nice.

:D

Diba nung nag-asian country hop ka naka-singapore ka na.

Mukang may part2. :D

Rizalenio said...

Napabunghalit ako ng tawa sa conversation. Hahaha.

Re festival, I think they will hold anothe HOT AIR BALLOON festival in Clark. If makakapunta ako, I'll let you know. May Ibon festival din during that event. Also, Angono Rizal celebrates Higantes every November. Malapit lang sa atin dito sa QC. Thats colorful din.

If you'll be visiting SG really soon. Dont forget to drop by LITTLE INDIA. Also, ang pinakamataas na palitan ng dollars ay sa MUSTAFA supermarket na nasa Little India. Nandon din ang cheapest bilihan ng perfumes and a lot more. Magdala ka na lang ng vicks (text ko na lang sa iyo kung saan pangontra).

Wish your more travels. :)

fetus said...

been to balicasag this month and the fish sanctuary is abundant with fishes. well of course, it's a sanctuary. :) go for the drop on snorkeling attire only! hahaha

fetus said...

alona kew in panglao island has boats and diving masters. this is usually the jump off point of most divers there. i didn't see any dive resorts in balicasag, or i just didn't go around the place. was busy snorkeling hehehe.
it's also where you can find boats that ferry you to balicasag island.

if you prefer cheaper boats, there are passenger boats that leave off from two docks in Panglao: one behind the Panglao church, and i forgot the name of the other place. it's quite tricky to catch those, as it's always a "special trip".

chrrrmaine said...

do visit Sinulog!! let's go next year!!
