A balanced weekend....

The weekend started with something for the physique (naks!). We again trooped to the UP Sunken Garden for some kicking and running action. As usual, the kabataans were there! The long-haired dude was not there but there were additional high schoolers ripe for the picking.

I like soccer not just for the health benefits (aerobic ... you can never have enough aerobic stuff in your system), the scene is calming and soothing. The green field spread before you filled with youngsters in bright shirts and vibrant energy. I really love the smell of grass and damp earth; this couple with the welcoming heat of the sun - a real treat for office yuppies boxed in their cubicles five days a week. I hope this will be a weekend habit. This habit I will not break.

After the heart-pumping game, of course.. treat for me, a Jolibee Big Meal! I know I may sound like a marketing officer for Jobie but I really love their new promo. Big Meal for Big Kids like me! Yummy! Try it!

Sunday, of course is reserved for the soul-light reading, a DVD (Under the Tuscan sun! Nice movie, vibrant colors!), and I had a chance to catch Jay Leno's interview with Will Smith. I love Will Smith (a fellow Libran). Like John Lennon, he embodies, the true libran spirit. Fun, carefree spirit and of course the artistic spirit!

He made this statement which I personally believe in, " There are 2 keys in life... (2Rs)..Running and Reading." Running because it teaches you to overcome adversity and it makes your psyche stronger. Reading because nothing is new under the sun. Somebody before you has experienced what you are experiencing right now so by reading you'll get to learn what you need to go through life. Hmmmm.... and of course, I love his shoes in that interview. A guy with something inside his head, witty, with a good fashion sense, who always look good. But sadness, he's straight!

Oh... one last thing... don't watch La Visa Loca. It's just a waste of time and money. If you're mom asks you to watch it with her, choose another movie. That's 2 hours of my life that I will never regain. Hayyy....

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! :)
