what’s in your bag

when i started working temporarily here in uae weeks back, i need to take a short bus ride from our accommodation to the shipyard where i work. it also meant that i have to carry my backpack with me. i know some people bring a lot of stuff with them in their bags, like some necessities that they cannot leave the house without having it with them. for me, the lesser i have, the better.

I have read on some blogs interesting posts on what people carry with them. it somewhat also gives one an idea the kind of person the owner is. so here’s mine!

how about you, what’s in your bag? ūüėÄ

10 things i have not done before

most often,¬†i¬†tend to stay in¬†my comfort¬†zone and forget that there are more things out there that the world has to offer.¬† i¬†must admit, i¬†have not done a lot of fun and challenging stuff in my life for i¬†set too much limitations in myself when i¬†was younger (yes, i’m¬†in my mid-thirties!).¬† i think as you age, there comes a time when you play back the years you’ve had and ask a question to yourself – “what have i done these past years?”¬†

i¬†told myself, when will i¬†do these things that i’ve¬†always wanted to try?¬† when i¬†have lost my hair?¬† when i¬†already suffer rheumatoid arthritis?¬† i¬†felt that i¬†need to do something about it and decided to make a list of some of them.¬† i¬†know some of the stuff that i¬†have in my list are too common for others and embarrassingly¬†it may sound but i have not done it before!

so, here is my list of the 10 things i have not done before that i will tick one by one posted in my blog sidebar as i do it within the year.

1. lone backpacking:¬† it was my first time traveling alone for leisure purposes when i¬†went to coron¬†last year, this time i’m doing it outside the country.

2. eat an insect delicacy:  i am not sure yet on what subclass of class insecta it will be.  eeew!

3. drink camel milk:¬† straight from the mommy camels nipple?!¬† let’s wait and see!¬† haha!

4. set up a blog contest:  in gratitude to my readers, i am going to give away cool stuff and docgelo of beyond toxicity is not allowed to join Рhe knows me too well!

5. sport a mohawk:  while i still have a head of hair.

6. do horse back riding:  i have experienced it with a carabao!

7. attend a yoga class:  kama sutra is a form of yoga.  really?!

8. spend a night in a historic hotel:  maybe with a special someone.  like my mother.  lol!

9. photograph a tarsier:  you can imagine why nature did not let them grow as big as a gorilla.

10. take a ride on a roller coaster:  and scream like a bitch.  lmao!

i¬†urge¬†my blogger fellows, specially the ones who sometimes read my boring blog (calling docgelo, chyng, dyan, grace, pm, mordsith, everyone!) to join me on this nonsense meme, hehe.¬† anyway, anyone interested can join and please do use the title 10 things i have not done before and include a link of my blog post addy.¬† you don’t have to worry if you’ll be able to accomplish it, for it will take you a year to finish ten items in your list!
