To kick off the New Year, I’d like to share with you data on my blog’s activity in 2012.  Thank you WordPress for sending me the report!

My busiest day of the year was November 27th with 138 views.  And my most popular post that day was I COOK: Thai Basil Chicken.  Wow!

Here are my posts that got the MOST VIEWS in 2012.

1.  Probinsya Restaurant, Davao City, July 2012

Some of my visitors came searching, mostly for keywords: probinsya davao, probinsya buffet davao, probinsya restaurant davao city, probinsya restaurant davao, and danglas, abra.  Wow, Probinsya Restaurant in Davao must be really really popular.  Glad to have eaten there when I went. I actually miss Davao, I wish to go back there hopefully soon.

Nagaparan is a small mountainous village in the town of Danglas, province of Abra, PHILIPPINES.  You either have to walk for about an hour to reach the place, or if brave enough, there are few passenger jeepneys delivering locals at least once a day up and down.   Years pass and now, locals have their own single motorcycles navigating the steep roads.  And when I was a kid, I had classmates from this village who walk back and forth everyday just to attend classes.  Talk about dedication and perseverance.

“I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour because it is dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.”
