Blog entry 2 years ago: “100 things to do in 5 years… so much to experience, so many things to discover and learn… :)”

Below is a FB note entry I did at New Year’s Day of 2011. Now that 2013 is only a few days from today, I re-posted this entry into this blog to determine which of the things I listed below were already accomplished, or how far I have gone after 2 years.

YES… that means I only have 3 years from now to do more. 🙂 Let’s see. 🙂

“While God is giving me so much time for myself, I think I should better use it to enjoy life while I still can. 🙂 So here are the 100 things I must do within 5 years (2011 to 2015).

Also, I might extend this list to 2017 if needed :)) I think I have already done few of the items listed below, but most of them are yet to be experienced!!!
