Confessions of a Rebondee - A new MOI!

It has been a week now since I had a total makeover as some of my friends said. Right now, I am experiencing mixed emotions, a little bit of exhiliration and something that I cannot pinpoint. Regret perhaps? I was thinking why it took me so long to decide on this self improvement move that I may have totally missed out on some of the good things that I might have had. But I realize that everything has a purpose and a perfect time for everything. I was not ready then, but I am definitely ready now!

I feel that people open up to me more. They smile at me when they see me and I feel a kindredship (if there's such a word) towards everyone. I now realize that it may have been me. Having this new look may have improve my self confidence thus, people can sense that I am more at ease with myself. Whew! that was a mouthful.

I even feel that people see me, the real ME, for the first time. This I found out when my best friend told me that he liked the blouse I was wearing but I fondly told him that this is an old blouse and I have worn it so many times already. And he sarcastically remarked, "Eh, di kapansin-pansin nun noh. Wa epek nun! ". It was a joke but it hit dead center - it hit a sensitive spot. Was I less of a woman then compared to now? He then reassured me (maybe he sensed that I felf bad about his remark), "It's now in the past bestfriend. Wag mo ng balikan yun."

Oh well, that was a sage advice. Maybe, that's what I should do. Don't turn back. Look ahead with wonder and be amazed with what life is in store. Basta ako... my theme song now is,,,, "Bongga ka day! " and "I am coming out, I want the world to know and let the feelings show!" This is the new ME! Watch out world!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

Baby boom

The first time we settled here in Melbourne we got to know a lot of fellow Pinoys who are living on a different environment. We joined them in making Australia our second home. In each gathering, we try to get to know them better and reconnect.

We didn't know how it happened. But after 2 years, suddenly each couple had their own babies. Don't get me wrong, babies are cute but it was just surprising to note that parties suddenly turn into an event similar to family reunions back home.

Instead of blood relatives, you get to see friends and their kids grown before your eyes. It's not the gray hair that makes me feel old.  It's the babies and kids that are now walking and developing into little adults.

I can't complain. For some reason, it is good for now, to look and enjoy kids from afar. It's fun to carry them for a few minutes compared to living with a baby 24/7. It must be hard. I really commend couples with kids and having to work for a living at th…
Family Vacation - Dec 2013 - Davao

In my 30+ years of existence, we never had a family vacation outside of Luzon. Last December 2013, mama, my bro and I went to Davao to "train" mama to ride a plane. I think she liked it and it's going to be the first of many travels for her.

 I miss them but I am looking forward to our next adventure! :)
