Unforgettable Moments with Mama....

This sunday is Mother's day! I was treated with early mother's day sentiments when the topic for Chico and Delamar's Top Ten (radio show) - Unforgettable mom moments. I can't help but think of my own LOL moments with my mom as I was fighting back tears because of the melodramatic entries from the rushers.

I walked into the room to find my mom seriously scribbling something on paper... from my vantage point, I thought she was writing an address or something. I moved closer for a better look and there she was writing the last sentence... "Pass this on to ten other people..." My gosh.. as realization struck me... my mom is writing the text message she has received and my mom (I haven't taught her how to forward text messages) was going to compose a new message containing what she has written to be sent to her friends. I was really fighting tears because I was laughing so hard.

Another text message incident.... As all of us know, we always received messages from those 4 digit numbers (2209, 2208, etc.), advising us of new promos. My mom was awaken by such a message and my dear mom... texted back to 2209... "Kung ayaw niyong magpatulog.... wag kayong mag-abala ng iba at wag na kayong magpapadala ng messages sa akin." My brother and I looked at each other and really laughed out loud. My mom looked at the two of us and said,"Naloloko na ba kayo ha.. at tawa kayo ng tawa dyan..."

But even if she is technically challenged (I think I got this from her)... she is the most caring person I know. I swear that she must be psychic. I don't know if I could be the mother that she is. But for all it's worth, I am happy that fate chose her to be my mom... sniff.. sniff...

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! :)
