A mirror of twisted roses....

Feb 14, 2005 - The nation was sent into a turmoil of disgust and grief. The day that should have been filled with love and starry-eyed romantic dreams turned into a nightmarish scene. 10 Dead and many people injured when a bomb exploded in one of the busiest bus stops in the Metropolis. Just imagine if those who died were in a hurry to go home to their loved ones to celebrate the day of love and without any warning found themselves infront of heaven's gate. It's just not fair!

A life for a life, eye for an eye... this is WAR. But I can't help but also feel sick. What if the bombers also had families who died during the military attacks in the South? What if there is a grain of truth that innocent lives were taken in the name of terrorist annihilation? Where did it start? When will it end?

Come to think of it... that terrorist act was also rooted in love.. love for Islam, love for family and love for independence. It depends on whose perspective we look at... and the problem is we have different perception of things.. and this difference turned into something violent and ugly. Bad things happen because of good intentions.... hayyy... but siguro.... all I could think of right now is how something good and righteous like love for one's God can create such havoc.... ayayay! too much thinking... HAHAHAHA!

"Imagine there's no heaven..... and no religion too... imagine all the people living life in peace...."

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! :)
