Bucket List

it’s just another day, with u and me, in paradise – Phil Collins

I started this list last year (in a note in my FB account) now with additions (i.e. detailed sub list for Travel), current status and will be regularly updated mashallah….

…maybe it’s what they call midlife crisis…with my not so healthy lifestyle, i think i’d be lucky to reach mid50’s, hence the conclusion that i am now in my midlife, hehe… 🙂

…moreover, i don’t really desire the long stretch…i am grateful to God for each waking up day…and i leave it all up to Him when would be my eventual sunset…

…i just want to make the most of life, while i’m here, while i can. Drama. 🙂

    Suggestion with jumping rope: don’t count the minutes, count the jumps.. start with 10 for 3 days then gradually increasing.. Do sit-ups and stretching lang pagkagising,, with music para naman ganahan ka.. as to your make-up, Ineng, we are in a man’s world, ok na ung nilalagay mo.. natural beauty is still the best.. lesser pa ang chemical effect sa skin.. 🙂
    Inshallah, all your dreams will come true.. God is not asking for material payback.. just continue being good to everyone around you..

    • thanks po ma’am, struggling pa rin ako mag regular exercise. pag pagod napo pag-uwi e diretso higa hehehe. and agree sa natural beauty LOL, basta nakaligo araw-araw (twice pa pag summer hehe)

      i wish the same for you as well, may all our dreams come true… 🙂
