A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Wish

A Goal without a plan

 

I like talking about dreams as well as sharing my goals with like-minded people. Having goals gives me motivation and inspiration in my every day life; it also helps me to identify which path should I take. I am no longer lost, no longer wondering “What do I want with my life?”.

As the saying goes, “A goal without a plan is just a wish“.

If you want your dreams to come true, you have to come up with a plan that will take you from where you are to where you want to be. You should have a clear vision of what you want and to take necessary actions to get there.

In my previous post, I have included there the checklist of how to be create a specific goals, be it a personal goal or for your career.

Start achieving your goals in baby steps and internalize everything that you learn along the way. We have a limited time so better yet make the most of it, start achieving your goals. 🙂 Aja!

Dubsmash Presentation

Hello, everyone!

I was busy lately and most of the time I was out with my loved ones so you see, I’ve been quiet in my blog site for the past few days. 🙂

As for today, I have a good news! We had this year-end (end of fiscal year) party in office; from games up to group presentations, everything was fun! My cheeks hurt from laughing a lot. Ho-ho. So what’s the good news, eh?

Last night, I was busy editing our group’s Dubsmash video presentation for today’s event. It’s just a 4 minute video but I finished doing it around 2AM. There were in between breaks though. 😛

The good news is…. We bagged the 1st place! Congrats team! Yahoo! It’s just a simple video presentation so we’re all shocked when they announced that our team won, really unexpected. I’m very happy about it! Can you feel it? Haha.

Even though I feel shy about it, I still want to share the video with you guys. :”> Tell me what do you think about the video and enjoy!

Throwback: Birthday Travel at Singapore

Singapore

Another #TBT post!

I started a Throwback Thursday post last week to motivate myself to post more. 🙂 Last week was about Hong Kong trip with my family, so for today, it will be about my Singapore trip.

As a birthday gift for myself, I decided to book a flight going to Singapore together with my boyfriend months after our trip to Hong Kong. I will share some of what we did during our stay at Singapore. 🙂

Day 1: Manila to Singapore

We were supposed to depart at 1:30 PM from NAIA Terminal 3 but got delayed for 45  minutes, though we were compensated with a free round-trip ticket on our next flight by Cebu Pacific airline. <3

Arrived in Singapore at around 6 PM. We went to Lucky Plaza after leaving our bags in hotel because according in our research, that place is where we can get the best exchange rate. Then had dinner at ION Orchard before going back to hotel.

Day 2: Universal Studios Singapore and Skyline Luge Sentosa

Universal Studios Singapore one day pass ticket costs S$74 and each each regular price day pass has a validity period of 30 days from the selected date of visit. Since it was weekend, we assumed that there will a lot of people that day so we bought another ticket called Universal Express a.k.a V.I.P Pass for S$30 and it can be used only one time at each participating attraction.

It only took us only 2 hours to explore the whole USS because we were able to skip long lines. 🙂 We had a Japanese cuisine for our lunch (I forgot the name of the restaurant. Hehe) then explored the rest of Sentosa afterwards.

We have tried the Skyline Luge Sentosa for S$25 (combo 3 Luge and 3 Skyrides). There was a sudden rain that day but will still managed to enjoy both rides. After exploring the whole Sentosa, we moved Suntec City to visit the Fountain of Wealth.

Day 3: Premium City Pass Sky, Land and Sea Adventure

We bought a package deal from Singapore City Pass that costs S$79.90. Package includes:

BubbleJet River Hopper (Usual Price: S$25) – Cruise along Marina Bay and Singapore River on a Bubblejet in cool, air-conditioned comfort!

FunVee Open Top Bus Hopper  (Usual Price: $34.80) – Explore sunny Singapore! On-board the FunVee open-top bus and feel the refreshing tropical breeze!

Singapore Sling Flight or Signature Cocktail Flight (Usual Price $69) – Daily Flights: 2.30pm, 3.30pm, 4.30pm, 5.30pm

Gardens by the Bay (Usual Price: $28) – Visit the 2 cooled conservatories (Flower Dome and Cloud Forest) and marvel at the magnificent floral and botanical wonders.

After exploring Gardens by the Bay, we went to see Merlion Park.

Day 4: Pasalubong and flight back to Manila

Before our flight going back to Manila, we had a quick lunch with a friend and Pasalubong shopping at Chinatown Heritage Centre. You could find cheap bundled souvenirs, bags, mugs, key chains and etc. there. 🙂

We haven’t explored the Whole Singapore yet so we will definitely go back. Also, as far as I know, there were newly open rides in USS!

VISUAL: Weekend Getaway at Baguio City

Baguio City is also known as Summer Capital of the Philippines because of its cool climate. One of the favorite destination of locals and tourists anytime of the year.

Last weekend, we had a chance to visit Baguio City again. It’s been a rainy week but I still chose to wear shorts at Baguio City despite of its cold weather. Damn, never again! Haha.

Some may not know yet, I like mobile photography. You may check some of my shots in my Instagram and Twenty20 accounts. 🙂

So below are some photos that I randomly took:

Hope you had a great weekend too!

Throwback: Family Travel at Hong Kong

Hong Kong 2014

Hong Kong will always be a special place to me because it is where I had my first out of the country adventures! Well, of course, travelling with my loved ones made it extra special. <3

This trip triggered me to work harder – so that I could spend another out of the country trip with my family, my treat! Yup, always dream big. 🙂

Albay, Bicol: Day 2 Adventure

Bicol Day 2 Itinerary

Woke up at 5:30 AM to pack-up our things. Locals said that the best time to see Mayon Volcano as a perfect cone is around 6 AM – 8 AM because during that time, there are no clouds around its crater.

True enough, we had a mesmerizing view of Mayon Volcano from Barangay Pawa, Balading Street (thanks to Kuya Edwin!) while eating Malunggay Pandesal from Emong’s. Got a good shot of the volcano as well!

For our 2nd day itinerary:

1. Quitinday Falls and Underground River

Inside Quitinday Underground River

Quitinday Falls and Underground River (Brgy. Quitinday, Camalig) should not be confused Quintinday Hills (Brgy. Quitinday, Jovellar) because they are from different municipalities in Albay.

It took us 1hr and 30mins to reach Quitinday Falls and Underground River. We wanted to swim but decided not to because the water is not clear due to ongoing construction in the area. Environmental fee is P20 and P100 per person for Balsa rental going inside the underground river.

2. Typhoon Reming Memorial Shrine

3. Embarcadero Mall

Water-front lifestyle hub at Legazpi City. Better to be visited at night because of its colorful beaming lights. A venue for shopping, dining, entertainment and adventure sport.

Our last destination for Albay trip and where we had late lunch before going to terminal.

As for our trip going to Manila, we chose to try DLTB Co.’s Lazy Boy style! Pricey but we actually paid for a comfortable trip and good sleep. Hehe. 🙂
