A Blog of a Work from Home Breadwinner. Blogging anything under the sun since college days.

Hello 2019! But allow me to lookback at 2018 first

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all are having a great start this 2019!

It's been a long time since I blog about personal stuff.  I wanted to remember or recall what happened to me in 2018, so here I am! Back to blogging but allow me first to have my year-end review while I'm in the mood cause I know I'm not religiously doing this. Hehe. 

January 2018 -  March 2018


visiting loved one in a cemetery

- seems not much had happened on these months. But we went to the cemetery to celebrate my Kuya's birthday. This was his first birthday since he passed away. :( (Excuse my camera-shy brother). 

April 2018


attending a wedding

- I  attended the lovely wedding of my college classmate Roanne. I think this was the 4th wedding that I have attended. (first was from Gracie, next from Mona and then Catherine)

celebrating anniversary with colleagues
photo not mine but from my colleague Paolo :) 

- Illumedia Outsourcing, the company where I am working for (here in Davao) celebrated its 7th year anniversary and we got to enjoy these delicious foods :) Yey! (caught in the action eh?)


May 2018


my bosses visit to the Philippines
 More photos found here from the post of my boss here in the Philippines, Ms. Eliza. 

- my bosses from New Zealand visited us. Finally able to see my colleague Matt in person after so many years of working together online. Hehe. He is so handsome and very bubbly! And of course, Jono also (equally good looking :) )

June 2018 - not much, just ordinary days. :) 


July 2018 


my father and uncle

- my father celebrated his 61st birthday. Yep, he is already a senior citizen (which now reminded me to work on his birth certificate late registration). Yep, I was surprised he doesn't have one when I tried to claim for his authenticated birth certificate. Beside him is their youngest brother.


my colleagues

- we also had our team building at Eden Nature Park and Resort. It's great  to be able to bond with your colleagues and at the same time enjoy nature! :) 


August 2018 - November 2018 

dinner with my friend

- seems like ordinary days also but started my meet-ups with Gel's sister to give my batchmates donation for her treatment. 

December 2018 - lots of events! 

my classmate's wedding

- I attended the wedding of Yvon, my college classmate and former colleague at JairoSolutions also. It's my first time to attend a wedding in a Baptist church. :)  Fifth wedding! Who's next?

my bestfriend's wedding
with my friends
lovely photos taken by Dennis (Leizl's boyfie)

- attended the wedding of my two closests friends - Fritz and Rose! They were both my colleagues from JairoSolutions and Rose was a college classmate too. It's my first time to be a bridesmaid and I had so much fun. 

I get to learn details about wedding preparations. I'm so naive. I didn't know that only single ladies are qualified to be bridesmaids. Hehe. That's why I was wondering why Roanne and Catherine were not in the list. 

And I have so much appreciation to all the people working behind the weddings. Lots of things to do! Like waking up very early in the morning to have our photoshoots etc and the night before that we had to practice our dance number also etc...I was just at awe at everything. Kudos to all of you guys! And thanks much to my two bff for inviting me and for this wonderful experience. :) 


- also this month, we had our get together with my high school batchmates from The Sisters of Mary School (batchmates that are from Davao). Just so great to see them after soooo many years. Remembering our high school memories and knowing some of my batchmates from boystown also. Hope next time, marami na maka-attend. :) 


reunion with my relatives

reunion with my relatives

- very grateful to be given a holiday break for more than 2 weeks because I get to prepare for our clan reunion (mother's side). Last year's venue was in our humble abode so I needed to do some house repainting (we used charcoals for years before for cooking so the house really needs repainting). 

- Though only few have attended because they live in far places but I am still happy because my mother's brother and sisters were all there. The smiles I see in my father and brother especially my mother are what matters most. They really love to have visitors or people visiting them and events like these! (you know videoke, parlor games, food etc? we all love that! hehe :) )
