My 2012

Year 2012 gave me a roller coaster ride. This year also has full of surprises that made me the person I am today.

Just wanna share with you how I survived this year that started with a not so good memory but ended up feeling blessed by the end of the year.

JANUARY. This is my birthday month. Initially thinking that my birthday celebration will give me a blast but it turned out to be a disaster when my Ex and I broke up. I decided not to celebrate at all but my friends were very kind enough to make me feel that I am loved by a lot of people. Thank God I have a strong support group that helped me get through this stage.


Instead of dwelling on what happened to my failed relationship, I thought of diverting my negative feelings into something positive and self-fulfilling. 

Me with Gladys and Kate in Real Life Foundation
(Grace to the Finish) My first Fun Run with my friends

FEBRUARY. With what I’ve been through for the first month of the year, I thought of giving myself a break. 2 minor climbs for this month. (and gala ko lang. HAHAHA!)

Pinatubo Trekking with Eskapaderas
Gulugod Baboy with my friends from the south

MARCH. My much awaited Run United Fun Run happened this month. I started with a 5K run 

Run United 1
I also got an invitation from my elementary teacher. He invited me to the Recognition Day and asked me to do a speech for the students. (ang serious lang ng peg ko dito. HEHEHE...)

With some of the faculty members of LTES

APRIL. Aside from Run United, I also joined Earth Run 2012 that was held in BGC. That was my first 10K run (ang lakas lang talaga ng loob ko). I was with my brother and a couple of friends in DCMi. 


I also joined another minor climb. I was with my Housies (Makati Housemates), Eskapaderas (DCMi friends) and Juxtapoz PUP. We conquered Pico de Loro. 


An angel also came this month. Kendra Thea Martin – Garcia was born last April 27. 

My Beloved Niece

MAY. Another minor climb happened this month. That time I was with my bestfriend and her friends. Time to catch up and the best way to do it was - Mountaineering in Nagsasa Cove. 



I also got the chance to see my High School friends. Define reminiscin' ^^

Rhoda, Me, Sheena, Jay and Rhomil

JUNE. This month was a  FOOD TRIP month. Since I started with my “no rice” diet I seldom eat out but when my craving strikes, cheat day comes. 



The 2nd installment of Run United 2 happened on this month. Had my first 10K run in the Run United series

Me with Bonna and Kiko

JULY. As I was fulfilling my personal desires, I also finally decided to feed my soul. At long last, I attended The Feast – the happiest place on earth. I became a regular attendee since then. 

Bro. Bo Sanchez
A friend (Cleah) also invited me to their “Pistang-bayan”. Experienced Karakol (Philippine street dance. It is being held during town and barangay fiestas in Cavite and most rural areas in here in the Philippines. This tradition started back from the Spanish Colonial Period and still being practice up to the present.) 


I got the chance to join the Milo Metro Manila Eliminations. My first ever run with a congested track (hayst... It looks like more of an ALAY-LAKAD than a fun run) 

Me with Jules and Rose (sorry it's blurry. blame my phone. HAHAHA)

AUGUST. Eskapaderas invaded Palawan. We visited The Underground River and did island hopping in El Nido. (I just wanna go back there… as in now na… as I write this portion) Hope to see this place again. My post regarding my vacation in Palawan is still pending. HAHAHA...Check this out in the next coming weeks. :D



SEPTEMBER. The 3rd installment of Run United 2012 happened this month. Ang kapal na naman ng mukha ko to do a 10K run. 

Ang labo na naman. Blame it sa kumuha ng picture ko. BWAHAHA

OCTOBER. Had my longest vacation ever (11 days out of the office. Yahoo!) But before I got my long VL, our company had the Family Day. QA, HST and L&D teamed up for the bay decoration. (BTW, got the First Place ^_^)

Ang mga feeling bata

I was so surprised when the last series of Run United 2012 happened after a month. The Run United Philippine Marathon happened while I was on leave. Buti na lang nakaabot ako sa registration :D

kami-kami pa rin.. HAHAHA

NOVEMBER. I was so stressed this month. Had to extend after my shift for the rehearsals. In the middle of super aligaga moment (because of the rehearsals of the Phantom of the Opera) I decided to visit my friends in INF. Lahat lang ng kwentuhan ay summarized. HAHAHA…

Me with Jhoera and Julius. Gusto ko lang ang peg ng kulot kong buhok :D

DECEMBER. Finally the wait is over. Aside from the 13th month pay, I was also waiting for the Year End Party 2012 to be over. (Gusto ko ng matapos ang stress ko. HAHAHA!) Though we did not get the grand prize, we enjoyed the night with our Modern Victorian Soiree theme.

The Phantom of the Opera
The QA Team
Welcome to the Christian world Kendra Thea! Kendra’s dedication happened this month too. Ang laki na ng pamangkin ko….

Me with my inaanak CJ and Pammy with Kendra

Now looking back to year 2012, I realized that I’m still lucky. I lost someone in my life but I gained a lot. I gained my self-respect, met new friends, got into a lot of places and still getting the opportunity to do what I love to do. I started the year with tears in my eyes but ended up with a full smile on my face. I am the person that I am today with what I’ve gone through in the past – STRONGER AND BOLDER :D

I also wanna thank God for guiding me and for giving me the life that I have right now. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
