Today is officially the last day of 2010 here in Bangkok, as the streets are clearing up and getting ready for the New Years Celebration. I would like to look back at what happened for the past 12 months. As I was saying 2010 has been very amazing, everything happened was a dream come true and I have learned a lot of things not only through my personal life but through my blogging world. I have met wonderful friends and bloggers and gained more jewels in my friendship box. All I can say is that LUCK has paved it’s way maybe because I was doing my best and really having the best time of my life. Making each day counts.
Officially as I look back at my blog stats. I started blogging May of 2009 ending the year 2009 with a total of 2,066 views. But amazingly 2010 did a big miracle in my blog. As I am posting this today I have a smashing 32, 567 views throughout the year. I can say a 30,000 views addition to the past year is surely a big achievement.

Aside from that, as of posting I have a total of 592 posts with 6,023 comments from my blog readers. I would also like to share that I am so happy that I was able to get 19 subscriptions to my blog, that is such an insane number compared to zero.

I was also featured at Island Souvenirs I love CEBU Exhibit with my I LOVE Cebu shirt.
Amazingly 2010 has been a great year for me. I would like to sum up everything that had happend to me for the past 12 months.
January – started my year with a bang, new hairstyle and new self. I devoted my time to loosing weight and getting fit for Summer.
February – was amazingly appreciated by my students. I received a bouquet of roses from them. Moved to a new room and started a new life living alone.
March – I was pretty excited for my Cebu Vacation but surprisingly problems came my way. I was mugged and lost my DSLR Camera, new phones and suppose to be gifts for my loved ones. But I guess God has always been there guiding me, after what happened blessings poured in and I got a new job in another school.
April – most memorable vacation ever, I was able to spend time with my family, my siblings and friends. I had the best time discovering Cebu again nothing beats the comforts of your own place.
May – I voted, I participated because I want Philippines to change, though GIBO did not win but I strongly believe he could have been a better President compared to PNoy.
June – Start of work and happily King moved in to Thailand. He found a job in a blink of an eye and started building our future together.
July – Getting myself a Styling course is one thing I am so excited about, I started my International Master’s Degree in Education so that I will be certified here in Thailand.
August – Things has been really busy with work, with my blog and everything else. I started my online business for clothes but eventually stopped because I can no longer get hold of my time.
September – getting sick was my downside for this month but the month ended well with a complete BANG!!!
October – a dream come true, was able to attend and participate at the Elle Fashion Week 2010. I was so happy and delighted to be one of the people to take part in blogging about Thailand’s great love for Fashion.
November – my birth month, all blessings poured in and I am so grateful about it. Though it was not really a perfect birthday but I am so happy to be surrounded with positive and great people.
December – good thing it was not a lonely month, I was able to celebrate Christmas with King for the first time, though I did not actively participate in my blog but I will be putting that up in my new years resolution.
So you see,2010 is not bad as 2008 and 2009. It has given me a lot of hopes and amazing lessons to be learned. As I bid 2010 goodbye I am wishing that the year of the Rabbit will continuously bring me good thoughts and blessings. I wish that all my dreams and goals for 2011 will come true. But again I do not have to count on my luck alone, I have to strive hard to achieve what I want for the next months to come.
Happy New Year everyone!!!
