Gorah ang watash!

I am so loving this word! I am an avid fan of gay lingo. As much as I can, I try to inject as much swardspeak in my everyday conversations (chorva, variables, eklabush, etc). Imagine a concall with an expat, I suddenly blurted out 'the 'chorva' requirements'.... Bongga! (circa 1970s swardspeak).

Courtesy of my girl baklush cubbiemate (a kindred spirit through and through, a fellow libran), I am able to remember this word, "Gorah ang watash!" translation: Go!. It has such panache and a very active, passionate verb. Imagine trying to motivate a group of UAAP basketball players, down by a point with only 10 seconds remaining in the shot clock and then suddenly the coach in all serious demeanour will say, "Gorah ang watash!". I bet that team will win that game!

Last night, we had a very close basketball game. But we have to give it to the Blue Koolitz team... they were great! The game was so tight I could hardly breathe. But the pinkalush team gave it their all! But of course, at the end of the day, there could only be one winner. Congratulations to the Blue Koolitz team! Gorah ang watash to the pinkalush, ever fabulous ladies!

At the second game, the WAPPAAAAK team did very well. A game with so much heart and passion! I like the Coolass team but of course, my heart is always pinning for the underdog. Those WAPPAAKA men truly outplayed the Blue Coolass boy fafas.

The RBL games are truly a blast! Can't wait for the next exhibition game,,, am I hearing a mixed basketball game? bwahahahaha...

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! :)
