After 6 months of dedication, mental struggle and finding time to squeeze in trainings, the moment I crossed the finish line, I couldn’t be any happier that finally mission complete! Why did I run a marathon in the first place? It’s #14 of my bucket list. Plus I wanted to lose weight and cardio is the way to go! I registered for The Bull Runner Dream Marathon 2018 as it catered for first time marathon runners. Best decision ever! What was my training like? Tuesdays and Thursdays I would go to the running oval with my trainer and do…
My Bucket List
Completed bucketlist#19 Part 1: Be a Couchsurf host. Meet Manoj, a Computer Science student from India who is giving the keynote for the annual PyCon Philippines.
Bucket List #20: Watch an international artist/band’s concert – front row! CHECK! I watched The Calling concert earlier (November 11) at the Mall of Asia Arena. It was my first international artist/band concert and its one my favorite childhood/teen band so I made sure to get access to the first row for bucket list purposes.

We found out their local dialect is Cuyonon but most of them speak tagalog and many of them understand Bisaya (like me!). Coron, Palawan: The Ultimate…
Malaysia is the home of the Petronas Twin Towers (Word’s Tallest Building from 1998-2013 and currently ranks 6th) and the first Legoland Park in Asia. Our first destination in Malaysia was Legoland! We rode a bus from Singapore Flyer then crossing the Singapore-Malaysia border and reaching Johor Bahru where Legoland Malaysia is located. In Legoland, we were given stamp cards to complete in order to win prizes (Grand Prize was an overnight stay at the Lego Hotel). For the sake of the stamps, we braved ourselves into riding all rides even the crazy wet ones! We also did the Dr.…
I’ve heard El Nido was extemely beautiful due to white beaches and virgin attractions. I’ve heard right but there are just so much more at this place!
