The Year That Was: 2013-The Year of Wonder and Magic

December 17th, 2013 (09:35 pm)

I started this year with a declaration, like what I did with previous years. For 2013, I declared it to be "The Year of Wonder and Magic". I wanted to see the world with fresh eyes and find magic in unexpected places. It was a vague wish but the 'fleshing out' part was the best. I trusted the Universe to read my mind and she just, got me, you know? She knew me more than I knew myself, and gave me more than I could ever hope for. The New-Agey predictions all told me how lucky this year would be for me and I had my arms wide open for every sparkling opportunity, every chance encounter with lady luck.

Some highlights of the year:


Starting the year right.

♥ An artsycraftsy birthday!!

♥ Crafting crafting here.


♥ My washi obsession, preserved forever in a major broadsheet! GASP!. Also washified my lolo's uke and claimed it as mine. I've been in love with it since then.

♥ I've discovered that I actually like cutting paper.

♥ Oh my heart---Stars Live in Manila! The start of my fangirling career. I got to hug them huhu

♥ Ticking off items from my bucket list: Join Dr. Sketchy, Sidewalk art, etc. etc. Yay!


♥ My heart is brimming with love for life and friends.

♥ Ballistic over Bali. Part 1, 2, 3, and an epilogue.

Surf's Up: Baler!


♥ The beginning of my disappearance from lj aka Instagram and Wordpress addiction. I still love arts and crafts though.


♥ Graduating from Art Class! Huzzah!


♥ Lomo-ing Bali!


♥ Beaches caught on film.

♥ My first solo Singapore trip part 1. Part 2.


♥ Tales from the city.

♥ Customized desktop wallpaper for Allie!


♥ The launch of our baby, Katha Magazine! So proud of the team. :)

November and December

♥ Watching Tegan and Sara and Metric Live in Manila! Best. Year. Ever.


♥ Attending a Printmaking workshop simultaneously with my art workshop!

♥ We're on tv! Solar Daybreak featured The Katha Magazine Team. Thanks, Solar TV!

Looking at my previous posts at the start of the year, I realized how much I missed telling stories via lj and sharing with this wonderful community. My lj-friends are so loving and warm and there's no community like the lj community. For 2014, I vow to still update my wordpress and instagram, but to never abandon lj, despite the hassle of uploading pics. Maybe a once a week post if I'm not too lazy, heh. I can't wait for more adventures this coming year! :)

P.S. I promise to update my online bookblog/bookclub site more often too! Join me there?
