My Awesome Life in 2011 (a Travel Log Planner)

(virtual copy: My Awesome Life Planner 2011

Finally, I am releasing My Awesome Life Book, a travel log planner for 2011 on a limited edition basis!  It is a travel log, planner, and guide book in one. I am excited because this is my first published work :) Thanks to Belle de Jour team for making this happen!
I am only releasing 1,000 copies to friends of Our Awesome Planet. This would also serve as a beta group to provide inputs for the 2012 travel log planner.
Here are the highlights of the 2011 edition:

My Awesome Life 2011 Cover

This is the winner of the OAP Planner Cover survey.

January Monthly Pages with Awesome Events

The 2011 Awesome Calender of the Philippines is integrated into the Monthly Pages.

Top 8 Most Awesome Filipino Restaurants in the Philippines

I've included the following articles never been published before in OAP to encourage you to explore the Philippines:

  • Top 8 Most Awesome Filipino Restaurants of the Philippines
  • Preparing for that Awesome Road Trip
  • Top 10 World Renowned and Must-See Places in the Philippines
  • Top 10 Beaches in the Philippines
  • Top 8 Most Awesome Adventures to Live For in the Philippines

My Ultimate Day Vision Board

Two vision boards for you to visualize your Ultimate Day and your 2011 Travel Plan using pictures.

January Monthly Highlights

At the start of each month, there is a highlight on awesome food and events for that month.

Weekly Pages and Quotes

The weekly pages are open for you to document your food and travel happenings.

There are weekly food and travel quotes that I uniquely created for the planner:

"America has Disneyland... London has the Castles... and Singapore has all the latest man-made wonders... But the Beauty of the Philippines is in all the beaches and natural wonders of the 7,107 islands... One lifetime is not enough to explore its beauty. Once you discover it, you'll fall in love with it and you will proclaim that it is indeed the best place to Live an Awesome Life!"

Travel Log

At the end of each quarter, there is a travel log spread for you to document your food and travel adventures in a scrapbook manner.

Road Trip Map to Pagudpud

I've included two road trip guide maps going to Pagudpud and Bicol, highlighting the food and travel must stops along the way.

Notes Pages

At the end of the log planner, I added blank note pages for your thoughts and insights.

Top 100 Most Awesome Restaurant

Finally, an initial list of the Top 100 Most Awesome Restaurants of the Philippines with their contact numbers.

Full Disclosure: Nothing to disclose.

P.S. I underestimated the time to design the planner, and I did not want to sacrifice the quality in terms of content. It is a bit late to release this so I'm releasing it in limited quantity and just plan for the 2012 planner together with the first 1,000 owners of the 2011 edition.

P.P.S. I decided not to put in restaurant coupons because it is a conflict of interest for my food and travel recommendations.

Sir Anton,

It's nice to hear you've tied up with Viviamo, coz I'm a fan of their planner (Belle de Jour) for three years now.

Do u still have copies of ur planner? I am planning to give it as a gift to my best friend who's a frequent traveler himself. I've showed him the planner and I can see from his face that he wanted to have one.

I would love to hear a response from you. Hope I could still make it. Thank you!

Yes you can still buy the travel planner online via BPI or Paypal, or you can buy it in Mercato Centrale.


hope you'll be coming out with another planner for 2012...

YES I'm announcing this soon in the next few weeks :) watch out for it!

Excited for your 2012 travel planner!!!

Anton, when are you coming out with the 2012 planner? :)
