My 2011 in Travels
December 22, 2011 § Leave a comment
In an attempt to do something different, I decided late last month that I would be doing a series of year-end posts of things I did in 2011. This the first of ’em, my 2011 travels.
Manila – February
My nth time in Manila (went to a Manila university so…) and 2nd time with pretty cousins and fellow ELFs, Jessah, Hazel and Melca. My mother and another ELF, Stephen tagged along for the trip. Went there to watch Super Junior’s Super Show III. Stayed at Makati Shangri-La Hotel for a night. This was the first time I paid for a stay at a luxury hotel. Fun weekend trip.
Davao – March
Vacation with friends from work, Ann, Janzel and her hubby, Johnson. My first time in Davao. We spent the first day relaxing at the gorgeous Pearl Farm, toured the city on the second day, and lazed around on the third. It was a lovely trip.
Manila – July
Haha Manila again. This time with Nanay and my brothers, Sandrou (Dodot) and Christian (Echan). Visited the Manila Ocean Park, SM MOA and then played slots at PAGCOR Parañaque (really just watched Nanay play). It was just a one-day trip but very memorable. T’was the first time my brothers and I got to spend a day there together.
Hong Kong – October
The last and the most memorable trip I had this year is definitely this one. First (hopefully not the last) international family trip. A four-day trip to Hong Kong! Nanay, Dodot, Echan and I had this booked months before. We were so lucky Tatay had a business trip on the same dates. As this was my second time in HK, I got tasked the stressful scheduling and planning. We stayed at the Regal Riverside Hotel. Toured the family to the same places I went to the first time except for places Nanay was too afraid or tired to go. Had bad moments however the great memories far outweighed them.
Due to time and financial constraints, this year probably had the least amount of trips. BUT it was certainly the best! I hope 2012 would allow me and my family to travel and make more wonderful memories.
