Weird and pleasurable weekend...

I am now at home, tired but happy after my 10 K run. I had fun although my body is numb already from the pain. The run's route was from Addidas Camp (inside the fort) and went through the whole Fort bonifacio until the libingan ng mga bayani then back.

My gosh, now I am watching on TV the militar standoff at the Fort chapel. We've just been there awhile ago and there's this military drama. Being a curious citizen, I wished I was there to see the tanks and soldiers. I don't have strong political convictions, apathy is my middle name in politics. But I get curious and I am a life voyeur so I would like to see what the fuss is all about.

I was not in Edsa I (I was too young then and I lived in Laharlandia thus the distance). But I was in Edsa II and Edsa III, yup, even Edsa III. Not for support but for anything, just to observe. I think that's my lot in life, to live vicariously. That aint bad.

What does the opposition lack? Clear leadership and sound strategy. This is mayhem, without clearly defined ideals. How can they ask the people to revolt if they don't know what they're fighting for. What is behind the anger? If we will remove the president from power what will carry us through for the next ten years? Who will take over the helm of this pathetic organization that we call a government.

We are featured in this month's Times Magazine. 20th anniversary of the Edsa Revolution.... it's an improvement no doubt. Atleast we can go out at night (without midnight curfews). But my gosh, the government sucks! But what's happening is good television :) This surely beats any pinoy big brother edition.

"Etoh ang Teleserye ng Totoong Buhay," Coup, rally at press release ng mga militar na nagrerevolution. If you really want to stage a military coup you don't give interviews and show tanks. You do something like assasinate someone. Hayyy... Amen!

and you call yourself apathetic. :) as mused before, are we pinoys capable of being apathetic (no matter what we say)?

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!
