My Bucket List

I have a lot of needs, wants and dreams. Hey, I’m human. I remember writing this list (or something similar) after watching the Morgan Freeman/Robert de Niro movie but blogs weren’t the thing back then.

  • Write a novel
  • Win the Palanca
  • Have my own car before the age of thirty
  • Have my own house before the age of thirty
  • Have my own vacation house (by the beach or in Tagaytay) – partially crossed off: bought a beach lot last 2017. Hope I raise enough to have the cottage built before I retire, though. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Go on a European tour (UK, France, Greece, Spain, Luxembourg, Russia, Austria, Italy). Yep, been there done that, twice in two years!
  • Watch a play on Broadway
  • Ride a horse
  • Ride a hot-air balloon – well, does riding a private plane with only the pilot and me count? Guess not, but I will make this happen soon. ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Get a driverโ€™s license
  • Be a millionaire
  • Climb a mountain – I hiked not one but three rice terraces in Banaue last December 2017. Bone tired but oh so worth it. Will blog about it soon!
  • Go camping overnight with no electricity
  • Learn to bake
  • Paint

  • Have two kids – second baby born last November 2013!
  • Go to the Vatican City and Versailles with the hubby – went to Versailles a few days before my 32nd birthday.
  • Go on a cruise – does the Seine river cruise count? ๐Ÿ˜€
  • See the snow

  • Work as a volunteer for an orphanage or home for the aged
