My 30 before 30

Here’s a list of things I aim to accomplish before I turn 30 — and yes, it’s a bit too late because I have just a little over two years to accomplish all these! Some are even too embarrassing to reveal — while I’ve been to many town fiestas, I haven’t been to any of the more renowned ones like the Pahiyas or Sinulog festivals.

So, any help in accomplishing any of these would be appreciated. Haha!
