Since late last year, I have been running up this small list of to-do things in my mind. With my revived inspiration for trying out new things in life (my boss simply calls it quarter-life crisis and observed that I was just realizing that I am getting older...) and seemingly good moolah karma opening my year, I am suddenly feeling a spurt of determination to finally tick out those things on my to-do list one by one, slowly but surely, year after year. I am now motivated to save up for these things...

  1. Whale encounter at Ocean Adventure in Subic Bay. (This is the first one I will soon accomplish-- this coming Holy Week!)
  2. Sky-diving (Somebody said it costs PHP10,000 per jump. Geez. I don't think I'm ready to let go of THAT MUCH moolah in just one thrill jump. Maybe next time when I have more disposable income ;-) )
  3. Intro dive at Anilao, Batangas (Abbie sez it's really a great experience! I don't think I'd want to go into a full-blast scuba diving though coz I'm fully aware that it's a pricey hobby!)
  4. Hot air balloon ride (saw the nice colorful balloons in a recent festival in Clark, I think...)
  5. Bungee-jumping
  6. Wall-climbing (not in front of the madlang people shopping in Alabang Town Center, puhleeez!)
  7. Parasailing (there's one in Plantation Bay Cebu the last time I was there but it was too expensive for me at that time)
  8. Paragliding
  9. Glass-bottom boat ride
  10. Swim with dolphins/whales (My officemate sez there's something like this in Bicol ata or Bohol...)
  11. Go to Bohol, see the beach and get to touch a tarsier.
  12. Go to Avilon Zoo in Rizal and take lotsa pictures of the animals :)
  13. Go to Boracay (the last time I was here was waaay back in the 1990's when it was not yet fully-developed)
  14. Go to Puerto Galera (Geez. I haven't been there. Ever.)
  15. Go to Australia and do the Sydney Harbor bridge climb. (Cheapest rate is AUD160!)
  16. Go to Palawan
  17. Go backpacking in Europe... First stop: Paris, France. (yeah. I wish! I'd have to be filthy rich but hey, it's free to dream!).
