New Beginnings….


Standing at the altar

I have always been a romantic. Even as the years passed by, and I have become a little bit jaded and cynical about things in life… I have a complete, absolute faith in Love and Romance. Things may be deformed, philosophies may be disputed and nullified, supposed scientific theorems may crumble but there is just something about two people promising each other to love and to cherish, till death do us part.

There was this time when I visited a church and there was this wedding. The bride and groom were complete strangers to me but during the whole ceremony I was fighting back tears… I told my friend in a whisper”I think I am going to cry..” and she laughed! I know it may seem uncharacteristic of me to be emotional but that’s just me. I silently cry at weddings because it’s a celebration of love. Even if it doesn’t exist in my personal realm, others have found it and cherished it. Love do exists! It can be selfless and beautiful. It may not last to forever but there was this moment in time (naks, whitney Houston is that you?)… a picture served as proof that there was a pure, unadulterated love between two people.

Just a ceremony? For me, weddings, baptisms, etc. are necessary rituals. A ritual of passage for each stage of our lives… it’s not about blessings and accepting favor from a deity but it’s a way of marking each stage of our personal evolution. Of all rituals, I love weddings the most.

To my good friend Manding and to her husband John, I wish that this snapshot of love be with you the rest of your lives. I know this will work because I was a witness of how Manding transformed from a girl to a lovely lady. As I look at their pictures, I can’t help but wonder at two beautiful, innocent souls finding each other amidst the challenge of being born at two separate continents and two different races. I really can tell that Amanding has finally found someone who will finally complete her already complete soul.

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.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
