My First Birthday Trip

Right now, I’m excited about two things: our upcoming house move and my first birthday trip. I’m more excited about the latter, just because this is the first time I will be out of town on my birthday. Actually, it’s we, not I.

The boyfriend and I decided to celebrate our birthdays (which are only one week apart) in Boracay. We’ll be there second week of October and that’s barely two weeks from now.

Life in Manila is anything but easy. I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs the past years. But I’m not the type of person who’s fond of complaining and sulking in the corner whenever I feel down. I’m more of the type who lives life to the fullest and rises above difficulties no matter what.
