Year in Review

Dreams Do Come True


The first quarter of 2017 is almost done but the 2016 recap is still in draft. Wew! Time to catchup. These days, I hardly have time to write anymore but if I’m not gonna do it, I’m sure I would hate myself 2-3 years from now. 😊

If there’s a line that would best describe our 2016, that would be:

Dreams do come true.

Indeed they do. All we wanted was to focus the year with travel  but we were blessed with so muchhh more. In 2016, we were able to experience wanders and achieve our goals too. Just thankful.

It's been a long day. Still noon but we're almost spent doing temple runs. Woke up at 4 AM to catch the #SunriseAtAngkorWat. We were quite smittened w/ Wat that we explored until 9 AM. Angkor Thom followed. Visited #Bayon, #Baphoun, #RoyalEnclosure and #TerracesofElephants. #ATM just ordered lunch after going back to our guesthouse to checkout. Will resume the runs at #TaPhrom and #sunsetatPhnom Bakeng after.

In #PhnomPenh, I'm wearing a skirt but it was above the knee, good thing I have a scarf to lengthen it.

5. Migo bought Raspberry Pi and installed KODI (Feb), finished watching firefly, watched new series: Dark Matter, Community and Expanse. Acquired 10+ new board games. Found a hobby, kite flying. New phone in July ’cause of Pokemon Go, not a bandwagoner.

Tentacool spotted over SRP! Test flight of the 8M long octopus kite. Immediately went to the post office after checking Philpost's online tracker that the package containing the kite string arrived. Bringing the kite that was on standby for 3 weeks now, we went to SRP after for a test flight. Wind was light breeze to non-existent. It flew very low on the first try then the wind died down. Several frustrating minutes of failed launches and windless conditions after, the wind picked up and we were able to launch it and the kite gracefully stayed afloat for around 15-20 minutes. The wind slowed down once again, around the same time a security guard came to ask if we got permission from the SRP office. Of course, we didn't. Hahaha But that 1 hour was enough to test it out. I feared that the kite won't fly when I checked it out the first time, not knowing what to expect buying online from China. Not scammed, yey! I also had a limited experience flying kites, it's one of my childhood frustrations. The kite was easy to fly, though I still have to practice more on how to fly it higher since it never really picked up altitude, I wanted it to soar higher. Can't wait for the next kite session. Will definitely bring this to one of my trekking trips. Ever thanks to my photographer and supportive wife.
