A weekend of firsts

This was a tiring but a very enjoyable weekend. A weekend of firsts for me...
1. The first time that I ever set foot at Ateneo Grounds. Yup, last saturday was the first day of our Football Season. In fairness, we had the cutest uniform. Armed with tons of water and bottles of Sun Block Lotion, we braved the extreme heat of the sun (1:30 pm! - imagine the heatstroke!) for our first 2 games.
The first game was fun! Both teams comprise of soccer novices. It was action-packed! With all the kicking, screaming and running we were on fire! The first game was a draw (considered a win by the way in soccer).
The second game was a different story. The opposing team have experienced soccer players. There were only 4 players while we had 10. Imagine that, 4 against 10. And they beat us single-handedly (special mention to pink 5 who is really a spanking good soccer player). A memorable scene: Pink 5 being chased by 3 players and she easily placed a goal! Argh! But of course, special mention to Ms Lili who scored a goal! Touchdown!
It was hot, tiring, and sweaty. But it was loads of fun! I now know why soccer is the number 1 sports in the world!

2. Sunday - my first time to sell something. We helped out in selling some second-hand goods for our company's outreach program. For the life of me, I was put on the spot trying to add 130 and 250 (gosh, I have a new-found respect for traders and sellers - it's really hard!) It felt good to do something for the less fortunate.

I do hope that we can accomplish our goal. But with a team of dedicated individuals in soccer and in our outreach program, I think all the pain is so worth it! Go team!

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

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.
