It's fun to be gay!

I am really one of the ultimate faghags! I don't know why but when a guy has certain traits that we readily associate with gayness I am really drawn to that person and I would like to think they are also drawn to me. They really make good friends. They are very artistic, articulate, honest, witty and a helluva lot of fun!

One time, I ate dinner with a gay crowd and I really had a grand time. I was the only female there and it's really educational. They come in all shapes, sizes (as they would really explain that size really matters but sometimes it's also what you do with it) and even if I have a built-in gaydar, some of them I really can't pinpoint if they really are gay if I just see them in a mall. The time of stereotypes is over!

As Jack would put it in Will & Grace, "The planet is turning gay." Just look at the rise of metrosexuals and babaeng badings.

I also have a deep respect for Danton Remoto. He is really a good writer. I loved his comment about the gay hierarchy and the different types of gaymen. The ICON magazine is a good read. I do hope it maintains its original mission to educate all of us, regardless of our sexual orientation.

But as for me, these are only labels. Just be what you want to be, love with full abandon and live a full life! Life is too short for mundaneness! This lifetime should be lived to the max(i-todoh mo na!) and to hell what other people will say.

Thank you Net! I don't think of myself as "gay" - probably because I am as brainwashed by the stereotyping as everyone else and I don't 'fit.' That men turn me on I suppose does make me gay though ...

Anyway - its refreshing to see an original approach to sexuality and I thank you ...

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.

My new blue IPOD!!! Love ko itoh!
Originally uploaded by amazonangbading. Last Saturday, I woke up earlier than usual for a weekend morning. Texted Dahon and Coultrophobic Clown, my head filled with excitement because I am going to have my own... I-PUD!!!

Dahon and I went store to store in search of the Holy Grail --- I-pod (green for her, blue for me... and with a SOCK!).

First Store --- No more blue or green 4 Gig I-pods, and No socks....

Second Store --- Yehey, there is a green 4 Gig Ipod, there's a blue one as well... and with socks! But alas, Citibank Credit card not accepted. grrr... (sayang, cute pa naman the guy who assisted us.. oh well)..

Third Store --- Boring Store, All of the above as Second Store (but the guy wasn't cute... hihihi)

Fourth Store --- There's a 4 Gig Green I-pod, no blue one.. Oh well, I can take any color... as long as it's not PINK! But the blasted manager was very mataray, and we (both Librans) felt her unkindness... and for what? I-Pod so…
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…
