The Sameness of New Year for Me


Each time a new year comes, I am always filled with hopes and dreams of having a better one, of being able to do the things I still haven't done, and hopefully come out better than my old self. I started my 2010 by traveling in Asia (Vietnam-Kuala Lumpur-Singapore) and I am ending it with my 2 weeks vacation in Negros Oriental and Cebu. In between, I've accomplished a lot in terms of work, paid my debts, earned something extra, traveled some more and overcame my repressed neuroses in a matter of a few days (thanks to the Kicking Pinay in me!).

I've come to a point when I stopped over analyzing the things that have happened and just feel grateful for all the blessings that have come and are still coming my way.

I also always find myself hooked to a song that always proves to be the anthem of my life for each particular year.

For instance, in 2008-09, Gyskard's PINK LIFE was what my whole life was about. Then the latter part of 2009 til the rest of 2010, I was motivated by Natasha Bedingfield's UNWRITTEN. For the coming new year, 2011, I am making Katy Perry's FIREWORK my life's anthem. And with this new song, I am welcoming my 2011. I am igniting my light and letting it shine. Here's to a more colorful, productive, better and meaningful New Year!

Happy 2011 everyone! Cheers!




Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you
'Cause there's a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

'Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

'Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
