It’s the first day of September. In the Philippines, this means you can feel the Christmas vibes everywhere! You might find it weird but, yes, Philippines starts ‘Christmas season’ very early. It’s not I’m complaining because I love it. A lot of Filipinos will start to put up Christmas decorations, play Jose Mari Chan’s Christmas songs and children carolling.
When it hits September, I always ask myself ‘What happened in the last 8 months?!’. It felt like yesterday, I guess when you’re getting older and get busier, you don’t notice the time. But surely, we’ve all learned, moved on from something and became a better person.
I made a post last January about my goals/resolutions for this year. You can find the full post here. I’ll try to give you some updates on where I am now:
3. Invest more. I’ve maintained 2 companies in my portfolio. I’ve sold one company a few months ago (gained quite well) and bought JFC! I’ve always been eyeing Jollibee and, yes, dreams do come true.
4. Travel at least once a year. I’ve been to different places this year. I’ve been to Germany and Belgium because of work (one of the perks of working in a big company that operates worldwide). I’ve been to London twice this year, Isle of Wight, nearby towns and we’ll be in Edinburgh in the next few weeks!
Another thing worth mentioning is we managed to get a new kitchen! It’s not cheap but worth it!
We have 4 more months to enjoy and settle any unfinished business before the year ends. Grab that pen, write down anything you’d like to do and make it happen.
