Tick these items off your bucket list!
MANILA, Philippines – We live in an age where we both have too many and too little—too many options, but too little time.
Keeping up-to-date—whether it may be with movies, music, fashion, vacation destinations, etc.—isn’t that easy, especially if you don’t have an idea where to start. What exactly is worth trying nowadays?
We need these new experiences, there’s no doubt about that. The act of discovery is not just a convenient quirk as some might dismiss it to be. Taking on new things serve as the sanity breaks that recharge us from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. They’re also the key to socialization, they fuel good conversations with friends, both old and new.
If you’re feeling lacking, don’t fret. We’ve come up with a bucket list to help you catch up.
Party in Poblacion
In recent years, Poblacion has become the go-to place for yuppies.
Located just a few blocks away from Makati's business district, it's no surprise that even on weekdays you would see people hanging out there in their office attires—unwinding after a long day, killing a few hours while waiting for traffic to subside, or both—along the area’s diverse selection of bars and restaurants.
So, go on, you don’t have to be a home buddy all the time! Let loose and unwind. It’s time to have fun and be one with that Poblacion atmosphere.
Listen to new music (or, better yet, make your own!)
Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.”
So feeling outdated with your current playlist? Why not immerse yourself in the Pinoy music scene? Check out music from DJ Patty Tiu, Moira, and the stable of Careless Music Manila.
And why not take it a notch further? You can learn a new instrument or even be the center of the party by learning how to mix and DJ. It’s never too late, you know?
Put your running shoes on and go on a fun run
Frequently find yourself in a slog? The holiday bloat getting to you?
You may just need a little physical activity to jumpstart your body. Why not start with some warm-up laps, once or twice a week, around BGC or Circuit Makati.
If you’re already feeling up to it, level up and join a fun run! Do things at your own pace. Because with running, you can literally take things one step at a time.
P.S. Don’t forget proper footwear, though. A little precaution can prevent huge injury.
Lose yourself on an island
Do you define tourism nowadays as taking a different route to and fro the office?
Seriously, it’s time to cash in those vacation leaves and hop on a plane to Palawan. It’s due time for you to clear your mind’s cache and make space for something new.
Take your friends along on this bout of wanderlust too. A shared experience in a tropical paradise will surely be one for your barkada’s books.
Ticking things off our recommended bucket list is just the start. Enjoying is and should be part of living. Through new experiences, we get to build moments, not only for us but also for the ones closest to us.
