Dear diary,

3:00 AM - still awake. I am typing the formulas that we will submit to our professors for our MBA exam. Omigod! Can I edit all of these on time?

3:30 AM - I can't take this anymore, finish or not finish, I am off to bed.

7:00 AM - Woke up. Climbed out of bed, dragged a comb across my head... (borrowing words from Sir McCartney). Watched CNN while having breakfast... hmmm.. interesting so Bush is having trouble in Iran.

7:15 - 8:00 AM - Bath, choova-choova ching. I look civilize na... and off to my classmate to give the formulas.

8:15 AM - 10 AM - NLEX - Gosh, the fare increased! 79 Php from Laharlandia Pampanga to Mantrade!!!! Taga-taga talaga.

10:30 AM Powersmash. There's my partner(fafa cris) together with the other Retek semifinalists (hi gerson, hi asher). Scan, scan the courts for cute guy. Gosh, no inspiration in sight argghhhh!!! yaw na.. I go home na...hehehe....

11:00 AM It's time to play! Oh no!!! Are those two guys(both males) our opponents? Asher is that you? Gawd --he's tall. Gosh, they look scary. I want my mommy. But no, keri lang. We can do this.

11:01- 11:20 Close fight. Toe to toe. My God, I am so tired."Cris... call a timeout. I am hyperventilating. Water please..." Tongue-out, tongue in....Tangi****

11:25 - After those grueling minutes, we signed the papers and handshake-handshake the guys. Nice game. 20 - 25. Oh well. Kinulang sa Reb bull me....

11:26 - 12 Ogle-ogle time! Aha... found cute guy at 2 o'clock. Thank God I am carrying my camera phone. Gonna take a picture of that guy's ass.

12:30 - 1:30 lunch time. Chow time! Picture-pictorial with fafa Cris. Some bonding conversation.Some new insights.. very interesting... then off to megamall to meet Ms Aina.

2:00 PM Megamall. Gosh, the renovation is doing well. Destination-powerbooks. There's Ains! beso-beso...

2:15 - 4:00 pm Starbucks --- another bonding moment (bonding moments don't live life without it). We talked about her adventures in Canada, my own little adventures. My quixotic crusade for true love and romance...hahahay...

4:00 - 4:20 pm - Bye-bye time - Ains to meet family; Me to find good books.

4:25 - 4:45pm - hmmm.. something abuzz in the Entertainment Plaza. AXN - cute bald guy from GamePlan, a loop that goes round and round. But wait, there is a girl inside! Astig! The challenge- "the person with the greatest number of loops made wins! "
1...2...3...4... 28 loops! The winner of the match - A WOMAN! That made me so proud! Go girl! Girlpower rules!

4:45 - 5:00 pm powerbooks - skimming through books. Looking for something to buy.. nothing caught my fancy.

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.

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! :)
