It's a friday! Maong day! Yipee... well, we have to enjoy this because this will only be for this month. I wish we can wear maong (denim jeans) everyday to work. That's my ultimate workplace! It's like college again but of course, I get paid for doing work and wearing groovy stuff (groovy? shocks.. circa 1950?)...


Listening to a newly discovered alternative band.. "Paramita"

Check out this lyrics from their song stillness...

Can you look upon your life without regret?
can you look me in the eye and say..
"I know you so well, you can't live to tell,
can't possibly survive coz you don't know how."

you're silence means nothing to me
I am much braver now

Cool! Their lead singer (Ria) is also their drummer. I remembered Karen Carpenter during her early years,singer/drummer.. and a woman at that! Totally awesome! An added bonus? Ria is a Gemini... really have a soft spot for fellow air signs. Another thing that caught my attention is their Buddhist sounding name. Don't know much about it but of all belief systems I like Buddhism, Taoism and Catholicism (in that order). Their album cover is so pretty! Colorful and tantric? hihihi..

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!
