Cock-smacking galore...

Two consecutive weeks of badmintoning... the first tourney was RBO (a project badminton competition) and the second one was a company-wide tournament.

In my first tourney, we were a mixed pair... I know... there are still people who would ask Cris and I if we play mixed doubles and all we could do is stare at them and wonder... "do I look like a guy or does cris look like a girl..." But Cris is bald so.... hmmm... my androgynous side again I guess....

Last Saturday, I played women's doubles with a fellow girl employee. This was the second time that I get to play with her and the first time was during leveling. But for first time partners, we played good!

She asked me if I play back or front... I laughed because the thought that came to my head was if I like to be top or bottom... hahaha.. Of course, I am a front net player, hihihi... at the peril of having a black eye.

During one of our games, my guy project mates were watching the game and they were cheering. I chided them,"Ako ba talaga ang chini-cheer niyo?" (Are you really supporting me play?) Because my partner was really pretty! I think we won our first match because both of our opponents were guys and I think they were smitten!Imagine having a front net player who's pretty and nice!

I could only think that we were the "Beauty and the Beast pair" hihihihi... I wish we made it to the semis! Wish us luck...

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!
