Wow! Look how the days go by. It was like yesteday was 2016 and we woke up realizing we are halfway the first month of 2017!
Where have we been, by the way?
We were actually just around but life got busier after the holidays that we didn’t have the chance to have a sneak peek at our corner, and we’d like to apologize for that. Things just went out of our control.
Anyway, here we are trying to catch up with everyone of you. And we are very excited to share what we have been up to these days.
We know this year’s gonna be very awesome. To start that awesomeness, we climbed a mountain on the very first dawn of the year!
There’s this mountain near our place that gives a wonderful view of Camotes and Mactan islands. We’ve heard from our ancestors that catching the first sunrise of the year brings good fortune and luck and it invites good vibration for the whole year. Common, there’s no harm in trying, afterall, this is ADVENTURE!!!
Off to the mountain we go!
Together with our cousins, we energetically climbed the mountain at 4am. Our friend Louise and her siblings went with us, too. We brought with us the left-over from our Media Noche.
It was 5am when we reached the peak but there was no sign of Mr Sun because it was a bit cloudy. We waited for few minutes and voila! Mr Sun was up! The first sunrise of 2017!!! We caught it!
We ate our snacks and had a little chitchats on the top. Around 7am when we decided to go down because the ray was getting hotter.
After we sent Louise and her siblings home, we talked to our cousins and told them that good fortune does not come from catching the first sunrise of the year but from hardwork and our disposition towards life. We just hoped they get it and live with those words.
We don’t really know what is ahead of us. Part of us maybe hopeful about the good luck that the first sunrise brings but we don’t want to rely on that. We still have to work hard. Afterall, we hold the pen and we write our own story.
Life, we believe is not a finished story on the book that we should follow. Rather, it’s a blank page of the book, we still have to write the story.
Here’s to hoping and praying for a wonderful ahead!!!
‘Til next time!
Love, Ace and Demi
