23 Goals for 2012

I was supposed to list down only 12 goals, but I've written down 23 birthday wishes last time, so I guess it should be fair if I list down 23 goals.

So here goes my list:

1. Open up an online stock trading account
- I've been writing it down on my planner, I have also printed all the forms and have the complete documents on hand, but I never get to send it. I should do it soon!

2. Buy a book monthly
- Or maybe bi-monthly. That way I will be able to complete my never-ending book collection.

my Pugad Baboy collection

3. Increase my savings
- According to an article, I should be saving at least 10-15% of my net income. I'm planning to save more.

4. Improve on photography
- Having a blog made me conscious of the pictures I'm taking. Though I'm nowhere near the term 'expert', I could say that my photography has improved a lot lately. I'm still a noob in taking people pictures (that's why I stick with taking pictures of food), I should improve on it.

5. Be more eco-conscious
- Becoming a Lunti officer made me conscious of which products I should be buying. Moreover, it has helped me become more health-conscious (though I always pig out) and environment conscious. I plan to influence more people by posting more Lunti-related stuff.

6. Travel more
- This year, I went to Baler, Cebu, and Bohol. I'm not much into traveling but I would like to travel to more places next year. A travel abroad would be much better (if budget will allow it).

7. Exercise more
- I enrolled myself this year to 360 Fitness Club. I'm still thinking whether to enroll again next year or try another gym, maybe a yoga class will do. :)

8. Buy new rubber shoes
- The rubber shoes I'm using is not really for running / exercising. Though I love shoes, I'm more into stilettos and espadrilles lately.

9. Be more organized
- My room looks like a war zone, really. I haven't got time to fix everything. I guess I shouldn't be afraid of throwing away stuff I don't need anymore.

10. Buy a coffee maker
- This plan has been going on for quite a while. I should take canvassing more seriously.

11. Get a new phone or laptop
- My phone is getting slow and I never owned a laptop in my entire life (honestly!).

12. Enroll in a language school
- I should be studying Spanish this year, but some circumstances didn't allow it. I plan to take it up next year. :)

13. Start a new sport
- Well, there was never an old sport to start with. I'd love to try target shooting or archery (to tame my temper issues)

14. Get the PEx food club recognized
- More food trips for us, more members and hopefully we get recognized by PEx. ;)

15. Maintain my financial records
- I'm so OC with finance (being an engineer has its perks). I hope I could keep with my OC-ness til the end of the world.

16. Maintain this blog
- I just started blogging last July 2011, with a month hiatus. Every blog post is a challenge (most especially if I have a deadline to beat) and I would like to share more of my food adventures (or my personal thoughts) with you guys.

17. Have a regular beauty routine
- My current routine is just my nail spa visits. I seldom have a facial that's why I'm having breakouts lately. I should give myself some me-time and have a beauty routine.

18. Watch movies (even if I had to watch alone)
- I have missed so many movies this year because I don't have somebody to watch with. For the first time I tried watching a movie alone, and it wasn't so bad. :)

19. Think of another investment option
- Saving and investing should not stop. It feels good that I have invested early, and I can't wait to invest more.

20. Think for a million times before deciding
- My life is a bit spontaneous, and I tend to do things that I know I'll regret later. This is a same old cliche but I should be practicing this.

21. Avoid too much fries and milkshake
- I'm sooo in love with both, though I know too much is bad for me.

22. Avoid too much Coke
- If it's not coffee, it's Coke. That's why my acid is always high.

I love Coke!

23. MOVE!!!!!
- Who cares where, how, or why. I need to MOVE!!!! :)


  1. I also have in mind some of your goals, primarily the SAVE part. though i'm not really that magastos naman, I plan to have my own savings account next year. hopefully it'll push through na. good luck on your future plans esp. on your online stock trading account *nosebleed*

  2. Hi madie! You should open up a savings account soon. :) An online stock trading account is for medium to long-term investment. :)

    Hi Krysta! Good for you. :) Yes, we should exercise more. :)

  11. Go! For all the financial-related goals, what I've learned from some wise person is that: Time has a more compounding effect than value. So the earlier you start, the better. :)

    Good luck and we'll all definitely keep in touch 2012 and beyond! :D

  12. Hi Lynne, I agree, that's why I'm so happy I started early. See you soon! :)

Mango Bravo by Conti's

Mother dear celebrated her birthday last month, and as I always do, I bought her a birthday cake. Last year, I got her Grandma's Chocolate Cake from Purple Oven, this time it's Mango Bravo by Conti's.
One of Conti's bestselling cakes, Mango Bravo is available in two sizes: Mini (Php 665) and Regular (Php 1195).
Thinking about the amount of food that will be stored over the weekend, I bought the Mini. 

Mango Bravo is a wafer-based cake with cream, topped with slices of ripe mangoes, with choco syrup and cashew nuts. Oh, this cake needs to be frozen, btw (super thanks to my friend Mike for taking me and my cake home safely. hehe.)

Chocolat: Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes

I've always been curious about Chocolat eversince a friend told me it's really good. PLUS it was included in's Top Ten Chocolate Cakes in Manila so I suggested that my friends and I meet up at this hidden cake store in Katipunan area.

Chocolat offers signature chocolate cakes and other specialty cakes. The place is a small shop that could only sit 10 persons. Customers usually drop by to buy cakes for takeaway.

Pimples No More with AcneCare #MayPagAsaPa

Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers. Also, acne can affect adults. 
What causes acne? According to MayoClinic, the four main factors that cause acne are oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Hormones, certain medications, diet and stress are also huge contributors that can trigger acne. 
Here are the basic prevention tips you can do to avoid acne:
1. Use less oil-based skin products. 
Using oil-based sunscreen, cosmetics, and other skin care products makes you more prone to acne.
2. Watch what touches your face.
Avoid resting your hands and other objects (like your phone screen) to your face. 
3. Don't prick your pimples
Just don't. 
Here comes a more effective solution to prevent acne: Acne Care Beauty Soap.
