As I celebrate my little girl’s 8th birthday, I’m also celebrating this blog’s 6th year!
I started this blog as “Idle Moments” in October 2006. I later renamed it to “Bisdak Babbles”. In 2008, I transferred from Blogger.com to this domain. Am I going to continue blogging? Yes, definitely!
I started this blog in Japan, so the photo to include in this post should be from Japan ^^
To mark this milestone, here’s 6 my of “6ths”:
France is the 6th country I have visited. I was able to stay in Paris for two nights and two days when I was sent to Lisbon, Portugal on a business trip in 2011. The first five countries I visited were: Japan, Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport is the 6th international airport I’ve been to. I decided to go through Kuala Lumpur on my way back home to Philippines in December 2009. The first five airports were: Narita*, Kagoshima*, Sydney, Kansai* and Changi International Airport here in Singapore. And the least crowded airport was Kagoshima.
A very nice and quiet Shiojiri City in Nagano is the 6th city in Japan that I’ve visited. I stayed there for about 3 months when I was a trainee at Epson in 2001. Our apartments were very nice, too. I can still remember clearly how nice the bath tub was! The first first five cities were: Yokohama, Tokyo, Nagoya,, Kyoto, and Osaka. Yes, I’ve already been to Osaka before I went back to Japan in 2006.
The current company I’m working for is my 6th. I’ve been in this company for almost 4 years, my longest stay so far. I previously worked for companies in Philippines and Japan.
The 6th plane ride I took was from Kagoshima to Tokyo in 2001. It was the end of my training in Epson. It was such a sad day for me. After my 7 months stay in Kagoshima, I came to love the place. I hope I would have the chance to visit that city again.
Finally, on my 6th birthday, there was a power outage in our area. I know, because it’s in the photos. There were candles other than the ones on my birthday cake!
*Narita, Kagoshima, Kansai are all in Japan
