Sometimes you have the best intentions of people at heart... but of course, I have to learn that I am not responsible with how people think, how people experience life and how people choose the one they love or hate. I just have to let them be. I now know how parents feel.


I love Pinoy Big Brother! Gerry told me about it but of course being a few of the T.V.-less room in the Philippines, today was the first time that I was able to watch it.... 2 words .. "Guilty Pleasure..."


I have a new goal and inspiration! I vow that I will run a marathon before I die.. Charuz! I am really inspired by Mr. Cadlum! Congratulations again! Idol! Hope we could have a chance to run together... at my pace.... hihihi...


I am starting to like classical music or any music without any lyrics. I just don't want to think anymore when I am plugged to my I-Pod.


Last Thursday, I was so touched because I looked into the kind and gentle eyes of someone who I know is genuinely good (it helps that he looks like Bruce Willis ;) ). He always posts here in my humble blog as Anonymous.. signed T. If ever I will have doubts about men... I will think of him and remember that there are still good men who lives with such kindess and with an air of congeniality around him. I pray that his health improves. I know it will! Tony you are an inspiration, when I grow up I want to be just like 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.

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…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
