Necessary Losses...

There are some instances in our lives when we try to grapple and find the reason to hold on to what exists... what is tangible... what is frighteningly familiar. Sometimes we stubbornly fail to realize that we need change in order to survive. But of course, seasons come and seasons go and there is nothing new under the sun.

I am getting tired of saying goodbyes... but without goodbyes, we'll never see the importance and beauty of hellos. Some go to far off places, some go far from our hearts (this is the most painful loss because we can never blame geography or lifestyle in growing apart). It's an inevitable part of our life's journey.

You never realize the importance of something until it's taken away from you. Cliches and these old sayings stand the test of time because these are universal truths.


Loving the Pussycat Dolls and Sugarbabe. Both groups have a half-Filipina singer. The songs are cheesy but hey... guilty pleasure! I miss the Spice Girls. :(


Joke of the week:

Gerry and Porshee Spice talking about chemicals.

Gerry: Yes, yung mga colloidal.

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! :)
