2013 was a tough year but it wasn’t all tears and fears. I realized that aside from buying a new camera I didn’t really spend on material possessions but on experiences. Experiences are always more valuable anyway.
Two things I’m thankful for in 2013 are:
1) Traveling to unexpected places, especially for work.
2) My relationships with people: Being able to travel with my sister, boyfriend (for the first time), and see my bestfriends who are in other parts of the world; finding my support group at work (hello co-ABMs!), food trip and get a lot closer with my pinoy gang in SG and discovering new kindred friends to have long, deep conversations about life, love and dreams with. Favorite moments below :)

Seeing Vampire Weekend live! My first indie band to introduce me to… indie!
Free lancing at Dentsu and conducting my first Google Hangout!
My first business trip to Shanghai with the team! It was mostly work, but I managed to step out and sight see if only for one night.
I traveled to Seoul, Korea to do a print trial at the factory for work. It was my first time alone in a foreign country where English was not a first language. But it was such a beautiful experience, exploring the town with 2 locals, talking about love in our 2 cultures, went shopping and capping the night off with karaoke to Gangnam style.
