Shopa-olic takes Famfanga

I have a friend who in my opinion is the Capampangan version of Becky. Once we were walking along the aisles of SM Pampanga... all was well, we were chatting away when we passed Kamiseta (a clothing store) and I swear, she immediately had this trance-like expression on her face. Whatever the topic of our conversation was, she suddenly tugged at me and said, "Anto, tingin muna tayo..." ohh-ohh... quality time suddenly turned into shopping time.

Don't get me wrong, I like shopping. But I only shop when I have something to buy, but this girl really loves shopping. I will always ask her, "Di ba nde na magkasya sa room mo ang mga clothes, shoes, bags, etc mo?" and she will just smile and with a wicked glint in her eyes she will say," Oo, but I get to attend numerous functions and what if que-horror I run out of things to wear!" End of discussion and I will enter the store with her.

With our shopping trips, I will get to see the different clothes and of course when I am suddenly dizzy with the myriad of clothes to choose from, I will sit on the sofas (believe me, I have been in all of the sofas of the clothing stores in Pampanga when I am with her) and I will be among the boyfriends, husbands, waiting for their girl. I now know that whoever said that woman are such frail creatures and are definitely the weaker sex haven't seen a woman who is in a shopping's spree. No man, I tell you can keep up (exceptions to our gay cousins - wink-wink).

When a shopping day is over, I find myself carrying bags, plastics of all she has bought. Whew! Thank God we're going home. But wait, we passed along another boutique and who can resist that smile. So off we go again, and she will be lost in her little paradise of clothes, clothes and clothes...

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.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
