The 30-Firsts Project

2014. Marks another regular year. But not this time. Enthralling. Let's have it that way. And in so doing that, I am making myself face an onerous challenge to accomplish this foolishness I am branding as The 30-Firsts Project.

I have lined up things in my vivid imagination but my eureka moments are not handy these days. So, I'm gonna need your help. Throw me anything you want me to do or not do, make, go,  have. Whatever. From the simple things to highly impossible ones. Who knows. Let's see what will make it into my firsts. And I'd be glad to share it with you when I have successfully achieved it.

Oh, and I sure do have my own simple ways of extending my gratitude. A little compliment.

You can send your suggestions to my Facebook account - Wonders and Wanders or email to

Thank you, thank you. Countin' on you.


And here's what I got so far.... I divided it between Planned and Unplanned (took place instantaneously as part of my daily life and/or travel).

1. Solo dayhike - I'm looking at Batulao or Mt Pico. Take note, it should be SOLO, by myself (ok, with a guide, for safety reasons)

2. Ride our very own PNR trains - it's intriguingly interesting even when they were still dilapidated. Now that they were renewed and some new units are operating, It makes me want it more.

3. A formal driving class - The 1st driving 'class' i had was with Pops when I was 8 on a motorcycle, and we went straight to banana trees. I am confident with 2 wheels but not that much on 4.

4. Some piano lessons - Actually, I can settle with getting the instrument and learn by my own. That's how I did with guitar. I remember I borrowed a friend's electronic Organ and figured out Five for Fighting's Superman. 

5. Surf, surf, surf! - Who doesn't want? It's like walking on the ocean with a glide.

6. Cook Paella - Yum!

7. A Para-sail selfie - Let's see how this will look like. I had a nice snorkel-selfie few months back.

8. Outdoor rock climb/rappel - I did indoor. Nothing beats the natural feel.

9. Buy Lottery ticket...everyday, for a month - hoping to be instant millionaire so I can travel the world.

10. Cliff-diving - Hmmm, it's been on my list ever since I learned about Ariel's Point in Boracay. And for the several times I visited the island, I always miss it.

11. No pork or red meat in one month - A big test for me. No, don't take away rice, puhleease. That would be suicide to deprive me of both.

12. Negative temperature  - Oh yeah, not just negative but freezing -30 degrees celcius! Ice and snow fun. I also had my first swoosh on an ice-sculpted slide.

My photo
I was born and raised attune with nature, grew up from the countryside and a strong believer in endless possibilities. I am drawn to adrenaline rush and was never a girly kind but I dig chick flix and plays some music. I started this site during a 6-month distressing/long sojourning away from the corporate world. I gathered all the travels I went and translated them into words. I am not fond of sharing details of my trip and thought looking at the photos I've effort-fully taken was enough. Yet to my amazement reading through it flashes back more wonderful memories like a gush of throwback Thursdays. This is also a good venue to practice writing and to connect. So, thank you for stumbling upon my corner. Sorry I can't update regularly but I hope you'd visit again as my journey continues, find some useful information here and most of all be inspired to go on adventures your own. See you on the road!
