Things To Do Before I Die

I'll be turning 38 this coming Friday.  38. Wow.  That's already a lot of years.  On my 38th year I'd like to make an inventory of what have I done with my life.  But first, I'd like to post the things that I want to do before I die, which I have 2 sets of, hehehe...  plus a list of my dreams.

Today, I'd like to write the 2 lists I have made.  My first ever list of Things To Do Before I Die (or my Bucket List) was written on August 8, 1998 at 6:10pm.  Wondered how I still remember the time and date? Well, I wrote it on a 1996 planner which my father didn't use so he gave it to me.  And I still have it after, like, 16 years? More than 16 years already... hehehe...It's a good thing I took it from my parent's house in Bayug last year and brought it here in Celdran, so it was spared from the TS Sendong flooding.  :-)

So, from these lists, which do you think have I done already?

Have I made come true as many things I want to do in the past 14 years?

Hmmm... I am going to answer that in another post. hehehe..

For my big dreams, based on my list, in 2001 I have wanted :

1. to own a restaurant that serves all kinds of dishes with chicken on it, hehehe... why chicken? I cannot anymore remember. :-)
2. to make souvenir items for Iligan City.
3. to own a boarding house and cafeteria.

In 2003, I added these :

4. To own an orphanage and home for the aged
5. To own internet cafe
6. To make handmade papers and its other products

Do these dreams of mine 11 and 9 years ago still hold true today? That, will be revealed in yet another post. hehehe  :-D
