The Top 14 Hashtags of My 2014: The 14 Highlights of My Year #2014YearEnder

  
Hashtags were really trending topics in 2014. And yours truly honestly admits that I am a hashtag fanatic as I use this as many as I want specially in my Instagram posts. Therefore, my 2014 yearender will then revolve to hashtags!   

Yes, there are 14 Hashtags  which correspond to the Top 14 highlights of my year. If I were to assess my 2014, definitely it was not a good year for me specially in terms of my lovelife. It ruined my heart affecting my life! But then, there were also some good things that happened to me during this year. Therefore, those good and those bad collided - let's count the good, the blessings and let's learn from the not so good things!

So ladies and gentlemen, here is the list of the Top 14 Hashtags, the 14 Highlights of My 2014:


14.) #REVELATION:
  
- Taking the No. 14 spot is the #Revelation. 2014 was truly full of pasabog! If you are watching a teleserye, #AlamNa the secrets! This was the year when majority of the minds were enlighten, clues were verified, and question marks turned to dots.   

It was an end-to-end moment where yours truly was crying in the beginning of the year for one person and cried again at the end of the year for another person! It was January when I cried and revealed to a friend (the same day when Angel Locsin cried during The Legal Wife's presscon at the presence of the media revealing the reason of her breakup with Phil Younghusband and revealing that she still inlove with Luis Manzano) about my heart problem. And in December, another similar situation took place but that time, it was for another person. "San ka pa, tinalo ang mga iyakan sa pinapanood mong telenobela!"  


13.) #R2 / #R2R /  #RR

 - That means Reunion and Reconciliation. Yes, I had two reunions with friends this 2014 after so many years. The first one was in January wherein I was reunited with my college friends and school publication's editors during the wedding of my college bestfriend. That was also the time when reconciliation took place. Me and my college rival finally reconciled and became friends again!      

The second reunion took place in March. This time, it was with my elementary classmates. It was actually an unplanned reunion. But the best thing that happened to me during that time, I met someone, a friend of my elementary friend whom became an apple of my eyes for a short period of time! #Dati, a song from Sam Concepcion and Tippy Dos Santos as our theme song. #KE


12.) #Eventology

- Ops, my events were leveled up to a higher level this year. This was the year wherein I handled major events where yours truly was the major organizer. These events were the "Fun with Philip" Show Launch, Tambayan Sa Kanto Food Trip, "The Country Wife" Celebrity Preview, and Hanz Cua Feng Shui 2015 Presscon.        

What more, I even had my first time to be a full-length program host / master of ceremony during the very first get-together of 'Marnolo,' the love team / tandem of PBB's Maris Racal and Manolo Pedrosa. #Kota! Hmmm... "host din pala ako ng Fun with Philip at Tambayan Sa Kanto Food Trip...Hehe!"   

Other events this year also paved way for me to meet the celebrities whom I never yet meet before like James Reid, Judy Ann Santos, Jean Garcia, and Daniel Matsunaga including the international artists and YouTube sensations namely Kurt Hugo Scheneider and Sam Tsui. I'll write a separate post for this! 

The FHM Sexiest Women 2014 Show was also a significant event for me this year. First, this was my very first time to attend this show; second, I had reconciled with a friend whom I got a misunderstanding; third, we became close again with my former love; and fourth, I met someone here! #ArKi!       

Awards nights were also significant things during this year. Aside from that star-starry events with the brightest stars, shift of feelings from one person to another took place!  

The Remarkable Words of My 2014
In 2014, I've Cried for Two Persons


11.) #iWitness

 - Literally, I witnessed crimes and holdups in bus twice! Yes, since I was assigned to a midshift schedule starting in March, I had witnessed two bus crimes while going home at 2am. The first one was an actual holdup wherein two thieves went up the bus with a gun and got the bags of the passengers. Thanks God, I was safe and my bag was not collected!   

The second crime was a bloody one wherein the conductor hit the head of the mistaken holdapper with his icepick. Blood flowing on the bus! Still thanking God since I was also safe and sound after the incident.

In addition to this, September 2014 when my Samsung Galaxy S3 cellphone was snatched from me while riding in the jeepney. The snatcher was outside the jeep and got my mobile when I was texting during the heavy traffic! Running mode in me was on "nung hinabol ko pa talaga 'ung snatcher sa kalsada at wala akong paki sa mga rumaragang sasakyan!" I've stopped chasing him when he entered the dark side of the eskinita! #IShoweredWithCoco  pa-more! Tsk...tsk...tsk!   


10.) #TMWattpad

- 2014 was also the year when I started to a write a novel in the famous Wattpad. And yes, that was based on a true-to-life story! I already finished up to Chapter 7 of the book. But since I was too busy with my different commitments, the novel was not yet completed. 

I am targeting that the story will be putted on the big screen with Dennis Trillo  and Tom Rodriguez as the lead casts. Big good luck to me! #TomDen the movie!    


9.) #TravelExplore

 - Travels, outings, and viajes were all the way in 2014! I had traveled to four different places around the country this year - Private resort in Laguna (March 1) for Team Building, Company Team Outing in Zubic Pampanga (April), Nagsasa (May) Barkada trip, and Puerto Gallera Escapade (November) courtesy of #MetroBlogger.     

These four travels were put on the limelight since each moment in these trips were trending! "Sino ang makakalimot sa pinag-usapan talagang company outing?!" #GuardiaSibil #GuardianAngel #AsongSunudnangSunod #DaigPaAngAsawa! How about the greatest Wedding-like moments in March 1? "Eh kamusta naman ang mga rebelasyon sa Nagsasa?! But most of all, I've experienced the S*x on Beach! "Ang sarap pala!" Hehe... #adventure      

Random Picks of the Remarkable Moments of My 2014

8.) #Groupie

 - I became part of the different groups this year. Well aside from the blogging community, I then became an official member of the prestige and elite running group, the Team Run Direction or TRD #TRD.   

In the company perspective, "ayun oh, tatlong grupo ang dinaanan ko!" #Astig 

Glad also to become part of the MetroBlogger team. I've enjoyed their company specially during our Puerto Gallera trekking and escapades!   

I also met new faces and new friends this year. One of them turns to be my so-called protege. #BFF #barbeque 


7.) #1KIG

 - Meaning, "1,000 followers in Instagram." Finally, I've achieved my target goal of reaching 1K followers in Instagram! "Isang libo lang ang hiniling ko," but at the end of the year, I even got 1,358 total followers! Wow! So thankful for this. I really appreciated my fans and supporters for making it happen although some stupid people laughed at me saying "araw-araw na lang puro mukha ko daw ang nakikita at pina-flood sila!" #WalangBasaganNgTrip! 


6.) #AkiChua

 - "Aki Chua ma-iinsecure na ba ako sa'yo dahil mas nakilala ka pa kesa kay Rocky Batara?" Yes, that name eventually rose in fame. And yours truly is now more identified as Aki (the screen name) rather than the real Rocky!

A cool story in one of the events I have attended just happened this year. Two participants got confused if the person with them was Aki or Rocky. "At nagtalo pa talaga sila ha - hindi si Aki 'yan (one said). No, it's Rocky (the other said)" "Kambal ba sina Aki at Rocky, bakit magkamukha?!"

In 2014, I've Reached My Goal of 1K Followers in IG
Two Letters to Spell My 2014


5.) #TheMerman

- This was one of the coolest and most adventurous things I've done this year! Well since mermaids and mermen were so famous and trending this year because of ABS-CBN's TV series adaptation of Mars Ravelo's "Dyesebel,"  yours truly was also turned into a hot merman with a blue tail! "Ayun on, kinabog si Sam Milby who is playing the merman Liro in the TV series!"

And take note, my swimming instructor during this moment was a Mario Maurer-Kalokalike merman! Ayos!

Being a merman then turned to be as one of my most remarkable roles I've played so far! #sireno #merman


4.) #RunnerRocky

- 2014 was also the birth year of my newest baby blog named Runner Rocky! He was born in November and now turning three-month old. "Since nakahiligan kong tumakbo at maging runner, ayun nadala hanggang sa blog!"

Runner Rocky is also my very first blog with a .com domain name! From www.runnerrocky.blogspot.com, Runner Rocky now turns to www.runnerrocky.com.

This blog will also be my entry to the 2015 Emerging Influential Blog.


3.) #Friendzoned

- I don't want to explain this item further. Well, please watch the movie of Kim Chiu  and Xian Lim called "Past Tense" for the details. Anyways, we had watched that film together. 

#KimXi also played a vital role in my love stories in 2014. Their movie "Bride for Rent" in January which opened the year was related to me. On the other hand, their movie "Past Tense" in December which ended the year was also related to me! "Ano ba yan?!" #EndToEnd #MakeandBreak #TwoTimesThePain

I've Passed my Second Software Certification which is the PSM

I'm Proud to be a Habitat Online Champion, Another Photoshoot

We are the Boys of the Awards Nights

2.) #Run

- 2014 was the year of the run for me! Definitely, this was the year when I started to run and got addicted with it! The addiction started in May when I failed to run a 5K in AmCham ScholaRun because I was late in the event. I got frustrated. Therefore, I joined a 21K category in World Vision Run 2014. Yes, 21 Kilometer was my very first run! "Eh pinagpustahan pa nga ako ng mga ka-officemates ko eh! Walang tiwala sa kakayahan ko! Porke ba di sinasadyang makatakbo sa 5K di na kayang tumakbo ng 21K?" As per their judgmental minds, I need to surpass a 3 hour for 21K. But what I've got, 2 hours and 48 minutes for my first 21K run! Thanks God!   

After the World Vision Run "ayun sunud-sunod na", I then joined different major marathons every month like the Run Fest 2014 (June), Fun Run with the Stars (June), 38TH Milo Marathon (July), Sofitel Manila Half-Marathon (August), Energizer Night Race (September), Rexona Run to Your Beat (October), Run United Philippine Marathon (October), New Balance Power Run (November), Men's Health Urbanathlon (November), and AffiniTea Brown Race (December).      

And as mentioned above, running then paved way for the birth of my running and fitness blog which is the Runner Rocky and took me to be part of the elite running group which is the Team Run Direction (TRD).

A simple start eventually turns to a big thing, an idol and inspiration in running! #marathoner #runner #fitsperation

1.) #Micky / #MicCky

- And this took the No. 1 spot in my 2014! Well, I don't anymore want to elaborate this further. Just read between the lines! This took my year by storm! It was a trending topic almost every day, in almost all of the occasions! #rcbc


And that is the list of my Top 14 of my 2014. Agree?! Those things turned my year upside down! They made and broke me at the same time! They built and ruined me one after another!

In addition to those mentioned above, 2014 was also the year when I passed my second Software Certification which is the PSM or the Professional Scrum Master last July 2014. "Partida pa ha, may pinagdadaanan ako ng kinuha ko ang exam na 'yan! And muntik pa akong mapagbayad ng company ng worth $200 dahil  mali ang nakuha kong exam 'nung una, PO  instead of PSM ang na-take ko. Buti na lang, pinaulit uli sa tamang exam." "Ano ba, ang layo ng 'O' sa 'M'," one of my teammates commented when I took the wrong exam! Thanks God at naipasa ko pa din!  

Now I have two certifications - the first one was the ISTQB or the International Software Testing Qualification Board which I took in 2012 and the second one was this Professional Scrum Master title!

Hope you all enjoy and learn from my 2014 Yearend Review. I'll be more better and will do more this 2015. Hoping for a better and brighter year in all aspects this year of the sheep! 'Till next year! (RCB)

Top 13 of My 2013: The Year of 'Bitter-Sweet' Moments!


2013 is Over!  But as part of my tradition here in my personal blog Bits of Rocks,  I always share with you my avid readers, viewers, friends, and networks my annual year ender review. Every end of the year, I wrap up the year listing down the top things which highlighted my year!

Most of the beliefs said that 13 is a bad number. It means a bad luck for many. But for me, I didn't treat 13 as an unlucky number. Instead, I treat and set it as a number of lucky charm and success. Therefore, the year 2013 for me both spell a good and not so good year for me in different aspects of life - career, lovelife, socials.

For my 2013 year-end personal report, I counted down the Top 13 things which made my 2013. Like I've said, 2013 both spelled success and failure at the same time. Hence I called it, The Year of "Bitter-Sweet" Moments.

Are you now ready to know my Top 13 of 2013?! Well, here is my list starting from top no. 13 up to the top no. 1 highlights of 2013 counting down from least to greatest:
  

13.) Entering a Networking Business:
     
Aside from my regular work in IT and career in blogging and social media, the second quarter of  2013 opened a networking business for me. I became part of the famous vitamin / optimizer networking business. For a month, I was active on the said networking business. But because of my too busy and hectic schedule, I lied low on the business in recruiting people, But, I'm still active in using the products since it's good for the health! At the same time, I'm still a retailer of the said products!      
 
12.) New TV Appearances:

In 2012, I've appeared in various TV programs and commercials from the two rival networks such as in "Maria La Del Barrio," "Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig," "Ina Kapatid Anak," etc. But this year, more TV appearances of yours truly took place. Some of these were "Indio," "Little Champ," TV5's Blogapalooza interview, and a major live TV guesting in two of PTV4's news and editorial programs. One of these was the "Tulong Sa Bayan" hosted by Ms. Kathy San Gabriel discussing the help of blogging for the victims of Yolanda.        

11.) A Struggle in the Workplace:

The first quarter of 2013 was not a good quarter for me! That was the time when I was pushed into the limits. Imagine, the day itself of my birthday, I was struggling and arguing with my new manager! Too harsh the experience was! But those things kept me stronger and brighter! Thanks for putting me on a better place!

Meeting and Mingling with Different International Celebrities

A Year of Collections and First Timer!

10.) Fresh New Looks, Great New Styles:

The year 2013 even gave me a new look, a new style in terms of fashion and appearance. Yes, this year, I tried different variations of my hairstyles inline with the latest trends in fashion. My current haircut now is the hit Mohawk! I've tried different variations of it including the one with shave marks. And of course aside from the haircut, I also varied my style in wearing different attires. I've showcased both from formal to rockstar taste of fashion! I even imitated the dress style of Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo from their hit soap.      
 9.) The Year of the 'First Time:'

2013 was really a year of all the first time! Yes, many things I had and I did were all first time! Some of these were the following: first time to complete Starbucks stickers and collect the planner; first time to join the Project Headshot pictorial; first time to subscribe for a phone's postpaid line; first time to use an android phone; first time of consistently taking lunch out and not anymore bringing  baon in the office; first time to use Instagram; and first time to get addicted, collected and completed the set of Smurfs little toys! Of course,  collecting of Coca-cola glasses, magazines, and calendars was still practiced.         

 8. ) Many New International Encounters:

My celebrity hobby leveled up for this year! Aside from our local stars, this time, I encountered and mingled more with the foreign celebrities! This year, I met the following international celebrities: Apl.De.Ap; Chris Cayzer; The Chippendales; the Glee Stars Becca Tobin, Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist, and  Dean Geyer; our very own  Charice; and the legendary 80's singer Patti Austin. I even met again the Thai heartthrob Mario Maurer during the premiere night of his new movie "Pee Mak" but sad to say, I didn't got a chance to have a picture with him! I also met different international models from the different events.     

Cats and Kittens as the New Member of the Family!

Friends, Teams, Groups and Networks!

7.)  New Gadgets and Appliances for the Year:

This year, I was able to bought new gadgets and appliances. Some of these were a new Samsung S3 Android phone replacing my qwerty Samsung phone; a new tablet; a new radio component for our sala; and a 20" LED state-of-the art TV for my room. We even bought some other small things for ourselves in addition with. 

6.) New Cats and Kittens as the New Member of the Family:

Aside from our big male cat Macmac who started to live with us as a visitor last 2012, this 2013, we adopted more new cats and kittens. It stated with the mother-cat Choleng who gave birth to first three white kittens namely Nini, Nunuy, and Buboy. After months, it gave birth again to another five new kittens. Two of which died. The remaining three plus Nini were given to my friends. Then earlier in December, Choleng once more gave birth to nine new baby kittens, her new babies from Macmac. Some died while we gave the others. Only one of them remained to us, a baby girl tiger-like kitty. All in all, we are taking good care to five cats in our home!   

5.) More Active and Dominant in the Social Media:

2013 made me more active in Social Media! Aside from blogging, more new social networks of yours truly opened up! I created my personal Instagram account last September. Then, I opened up my Sound Cloud account where I share my cover versions of the different songs. I even have now my Foursquare account where you can find me in different places. Aside from my personal YouTube Channel, I created another one named Vids of Rock this time containing events, happenings, and other interesting things.  You can also read the comics version of myself via Bitstrips. Of course, I'm still active and kicking in Twitter and Facebook. You can follow me on Twitter and Instagram via my username @rockenroll_04.   

This blog, the Bits of Rocks even celebrated its 5TH Year Blog Anniversary last March 2013.

4.) More New Events
 
We can say that, "inuulan ako ng events" this year! Yes, more new events and invites were pouring! I got new and different invites from the different PRs ranging from a simple one to a prestige big time happenings! Even though some "insecure" personalities keep on pulling me down, I still got the lucks and blessings! I even managed to surpass them!

3.) New Friends, New Team, New Barkada:

This year, I met new friends, I became part of new group, I expanded my networks! I got found friends from the different events I have attended and from my team and workplace itself! I even found new love. I enjoyed new friendships!

2.) New Working Environment:

Earlier this year, I suffered! But on the mid-part up to the last, I enjoyed and emerged on top! The tragedies I've experienced in this aspect of my career seemed a blessing in disguise. God put me on the better one. He leads me to a brighter path. Now I'm enjoying what I have - the people, the friends, the place, the position, and the range!

1.) Three Seasons of Love

And now we are down to my top list, the No. 1 spot in my Top 13! And yes, this part is the hardest one to write! Sorry, but this one really spelled my 2013. It drove me crazy I guest! If in 2012, I got three relationships at the same time (yes as in sabay-sabay), 2013 then served as my karma! This time, not once nor twice, but thrice! Yes, three times I got three different love stories but of one similar plot! Hence they were termed as Season 1, Season 2,  and Season 3. It seems nakiki-uso yata ako sa trend ng love stories ngayon...!!! Earlier in January 2013, my siomai-serye reigned the social media (Season 1). It was eventually replaced by a new one in May 2013, the most silent of the three (Season 2). Until the mid part of the year 'till the present was dominated by the third one (Season 3). Take note, all of them have one letter in common! Can you guest what letter is this?!

But of course, my 2013 didn't only rotate to these three seasons. Last March 2013 before Season 2, I got a one-month long relationship (mala-Cristine at Derek lang ang peg) but didn't prosper to last! The first movie that we had watched was "It Takes a Man and a Woman" therefore that movie specially the theme song spoke something in my heart.          


And that concludes the year that was, my Top 13 of 2013! It was really a Bitter-Sweet! In both the love and the career aspects, it combined the sweetness and bitterness! Sorry, I can't disclose any names for privacy and confidentiality purposes! Looking forward, for the best this 2014! Happy New Year to all! (RCB)
