AEthan's Top of the List -- A YeArender (Part 1)

2010 has been a colorful year for me.
It offered tons of unforgettable experiences & memorable twists & turns. To put that year’s special features into black & white, I came up with my very own list of the things which made this year extra special.

The year 2010 was marked as my 3rd decade of living with a wonderful life on this side of the planet. As a full blooded Taurean, life has been so colorful & exciting. I am very blessed with many challenges that molded me into who I am now.

Towards the last quarter of the year, I allowed a shift on my career. I transferred to another department in order to expand my horizon & my knowledge as well.

My new family - Central Logistics
My year of the Ox may be considered as my most traveled year.

During the first part of the year was my first ever business travel. Feeling so excited with an all-expense paid trip, I enjoyed meeting new contacts and new places.  

Mid-part of the year was my first ever out-of-the country visit. Went off to Singapore & Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Truly ‘twas a whole new experience. More of these places in my next blog!

During the last quarter of the year, I, together with my office buddies, did an escape to the northern part of the country. We took a flight going to Manila then hired a van to reach the peaks of Baguio & wander the heritage village of Vigan. Watch out for my stories on these memorable trips in my next blog.

I go for variety of music & I love collecting nice tracks. To prove that, I have categorized my top of the list music into 2 – the feel-good hits & pump-up beats.

Feel-good Category – these are my top 3 favorite tracks in 2010 & I keep on playing them if I have the chance to hit my player.

#3 – Hey, Soul Sister (by Train). I like its reggae melody & its lyrics are cool. Listening to this song is relaxing. I can imagine myself in a lying in a hammock while sipping my tropical drink!

#2 – Just the Way You Are ( by Bruno Mars). The lyrics of this song are kinda lovely. Its dramatic intro & head-nodding beat are plus factor. This is a nice song to dedicate to someone special to your life.

#1 – Billionaire (by Travie McCoy). This is my “wannabe” song, an inspirational song so to speak! Nice rhythm, funny & cool lyrics plus the rap – these make this song my top of the list!
