2012: Off to a Great Start
When this photo was taken in December 2011, I had 2 reasons for it: (1) I was into running so obviously, the signage appealed to me, (2) I was reeling from 2 disappointments --- came so close twice to winning a round trip ticket to Europe, but due to technicality was disqualified. Hence, I was trying to psyche myself that 2012 would be a better year.
And maybe it was "prophetic". The first half of the year were travel-filled --- Boracay in January for the Big VT meet; Bohol in March for our company outing; weekend trips with family to Hundred Islands Pangasinan in March; Zambales and Baguio in April; Thunderbird Resort La Union in June; plus day trips to Tagaytay, Pampanga, Batangas, Bulacan.
Halfway through the year, I made a career shift. It was a big move motivated by career advancement, financial gain, and travel opportunities. Barely a month into my new work, I traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a meeting. It was followed by a training in Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas. Then came the strategic planning at Anvaya Cove in Morong, Bataan. A surprise trip was the company's pre-Christmas outing at Misibis Bay, Albay. And, a week after came another trip to Kuala Lumpur to attend a convention.
Indeed, I was off to a great start!
