How did you spend the extra-long break? I spent it up in the mountains… two, in fact. After Christmas, my family and I flew to Denpasar and spent 5 relaxing days in a wonderful resort in Ubud, Bali. As soon as I landed in Manila, I was on my way to Baguio to spend a quiet New Year in Sagada with good friends. Both locations I return again and again for their food, so I indulged in good eating this season (as always). 😉 Overindulgence aside, I also found time to finally make a dent on the pile of books on my shelf, waiting to be read.
Despite the gloomy forecast, I can’t wait to get started. I’ve already got a growing list of plans for the year. Four exciting places I want to explore within the 1st half of the year. Learn one sport (starting this month) and master it (in a year or two, I hope). Know Photoshop inside out. Take more photos… and the list goes on. But before all these, it’s back to the gym tomorrow to shed off those extra pounds! 😛
Seriously though, I am thankful and grateful to the almighty God for a wonderful 2008. Hope the blessing continues with the same grace and faithfulness He has bestowed through the years.
A blessed New Year to all! More on Bali and Sagada in the next few days.
