My Bucket list

A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die. It comes from the term "kicked the bucket".The movie by Rob Reiner called "The Bucket List" featuring two terminally ill men (played by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson) go on a road trip to do the things they wanted to do before they die.

Inspired also by Nikki Tomines, a friend I met in twitter, I am making now my own list to accomplish before my hair turns grey.:)

1. learn how to swim
One of the MUST things to do since the succeeding lists are all about water! I really feel I'm a mermaid incarnate (because I love love love the sea!) but the punishment for my over kakulitan is not knowing how to swim! Haha! Well..i do know how as long as my feet can touch the sea floor.When I can no longer feel the sands on my feet, I panic. Need to get over the trauma soon!
2.Learn surfing in San Juan, La Union and have hottah hottah Luke Skywater as my teacher. (He promised already. I hope I won't be distracted. Might end up drooling at his abs. haha!)
          Managed to get his autograph instead. haha  Soon LU and Lukey. Soon.
