Goals for 2012 | More Fun In The Philippines

As always, my first post for this year states my goals to achieve this 2012. Here it is.


Wear a 2-pc swimwear again. From 110lbs, Im now weighing 116-120lbs. Scary! So right after the holidays, I started my No Rice, No Fast Food, No Junk Food, No White Mocha diet =( ..and Im really struggling. Tiis ganda. Haha! On the good side, Im now forced to eat veggies and fruits. Hume-healthy lifestyle. Ü

Palaui. Located off the northeastern extremity of Luzon. This 5-hour trekking adventure was actually over 2 days before 2011 ends. Will post this entry soon.

Witness another festival. I had so much fun being part of Masskara's crowd last year. This year, I want to experience another world class festival in the Philippines.

Whale Shark encounter. Hoping to have a swim with this gentle creature. Wait lang, they dont bite right?

Basilan. Life Insurance - check!

Tawi-Tawi. Explore the southernmost part of Pinas. Im excited for this one.

Apo Reef. And so I almost forgot my tinatawag palang Holy Week. For the last 3 years, these days dont spell vacation to me, but Double Pay. ♥ Having a normal work now, I got pressured to create a trip for this 5-day vacation break. Joiners are very welcome. April 6-9.

as of now, there are still 8 promo seats in Cebu Pacific which only costs P488 only, per way. Ang mura na nyan for a super peak season. Book na ng flights from Manila - San Jose Mindoro. Or you have the option to take the bus if you wish.

El Nido. I wasn't able to do this last year, sayang ang forfeited tickets. This year, sana matuloy na. Who wants to join? I already bought tickets to Puerto Prinsesa for Nov 1-4. That's a 4-day long weekend.

Surigao and Siargao. Find the hidden beaches and caves in the easternmost part of Pinas. Will try to surf thru their premier waves too. Yes, joiners are welcome, kaso rainy season ang trip na to, in time for our company shutdown. Still hoping to get a good weather by that time comes.

South Korea. Inspired by the traumatic experience last year, I'd rather visit countries where Filipinos have good reputations. S.Korea is perfect, not to mention their visa processing is free!

Korean Food. Okay I admit Im never interested, but I need experience it soon. Anyone who wants to join me in trying Korean dishes?

for those interested joiners, just email me =)

You all knew Im Gordon's fan, but lets all move on from Wow Philippines, okay? Let's give this FUN tagline a chance, after all comedy naman talaga sa Pinas. ^_^

And as my support to DOT's newest tourism tagline, here are more reasons why It's More Fun in the Philippines.





favorite ko to! ^_^

the whale sharks don't bite. well one whale shark pushed me aside as i was swimming in its way. hahaha... i just felt like a log was rolling on my legs.

"Ang ang ang ang-ang ang-ang" means... i'll tell you when you get to cebu. hahahaha

Kat said...

Hi, Chyng. Nice "more fun" pics!

Barring conflicting sked and budget constraints, I want to join Surigao and Siargao plans. Lapit lang ako but I have never been to Siargao. The non-swimmer is afraid of the huge waves. :D

Hoobert the Awesome said...

Sus kayang kaya ang #1. Konting takbo lang yan sa Baywalk or akyat sa Batad, tanggal yang extra pounds na yan. Ikaw bawas timbang, ako naman dagdag. Haha. Anobeyen. Apir tayo sa fruits and veggies.

Mukhang sikat na sikat na sa mga bloggers ang Palaui. Unang basa ko nga nyan sa isang travel blog, akala ko Palau nagkamali lang. Yun pala may place pa lang ganyan. Ano mas malayo yan o Batanes? Abangan ko na lang tuloy post mo. Hehe.

Correct me if I wrong pero punta ka Dinagyang, right? E sa Hot Air Balloon Fest? Sana makapunta din ako. :)

Dapat yung title mo sa Basilan trip mo ay "Don't Tell My Mother I'm in Basilan". Ako din, gusto ko ma-experience Mindanao. I'm thinking of Tawi-Tawi or Zamboanga.

Aba, aba. Korea. For sure, aabangan ko 'tong post na 'to. Hehe. Idol ko yata ang Super Junior. LOLJK.

Basta Ate, good luck. Keep us updated. :) Alam kong another banner year sa'yo ang 2012. I can feel it!

Untied Escape said...

List plang astig nA! Goodluck Chyng! Sana makasama aq dyan!

Untied Escape said...

Sama ako sa South Korea!

Jepoy said...

I'll check my leaves. Sama ko sayo sa Korea. Give me details :-D Kahit late na ko makapag book. Kahit one week nalang lipad na. Seryoso sama ko! :-D

jeanny said...

I love korean food. In fact I included it in my household cooking. I love making bujaejjigae, kimchi fried rice and japcahe. :-)

Goodluck for 2012. Kaya mo lahat yan, ikaw pa!!!

anna banaag said...

I want to join on your El Nido deployment, It's pretty exciting to roam on that paradise.

Joanne T, said...

Hi Chyng!

Friend ako ni Mary Ann F. at na-open ko itong blog mo ng dahil sa scuba adventure mo (pinipilit nya kasi akong mag-scuba din) since then, kapag may mga travels ako, I always check your blog, tintignan ko kung narating mo na yung mga destinations just to get some tips! :)

Anyway, Me and Ann will be going to Donsol this March, and if ever you're free I'd like to meet you, sama ka samin! hehe.. since nasa goals mo naman ang swim with the butandings!

Don't know how we can get in touch siguro through Anne nalang sa FB, just in case lang naman na gusto mo.. :)

Joanne T.

Ian | Going Places said...

You have a lot of travel plans for this year... may you achieve it this year, syempre unahin mo muna ang travel for #1 fun in the Philippines! Promotion of the local tourism we can get a share of our ASEAN region.

Korean food's pretty good. Just have a gallon of water within arm's reach! Most of it's spicy~

Looking forward to your Basilan and Tawi-tawi trips!

JeffZ said...

Whale sharks don't bite.. lulunukin ka na lang ng buong buo.. haha that's also in my bucket list.. esp when I read an article about fishermen befriending whale sharks in sorsogon I think.. para lang silang nagpapakain ng isda sa aquarium.. that's amazing! :)
