V for Vendetta and si Pia-Pia Cayetano

I participated in the Pinay Walk/Event for the Women's Foundation last Saturday. Of course, I ran the 10 K again so it smells like Ben-Gay in my cubie again. But it was fun.. and I think I've improved... looking forward to the New Balance Run.

Pia Pia Cayetano is pretty! She's tall and lean. I never expected her to look that good in person. Gosh, I have to always say her name two times.. Pia 2x... just like her jingle... hihiihi... Maricle Laxa and her hubby were there and so was Rockets. (Ronnie Rickets). No Richard Gutierrez though :(

I grudgingly dragged my butt with my bro to watch V for Vendetta. I prepared myself to be bored to death but lo and behold.. what was that? It was a good and decent movie. I liked it very much! I think this is the redeeming movie of the Wachowski brothers.. after giving us Matrix 2 and Matrix 3 .. que horror.. they should give us something substantial.

Favourite line in the movie:
"The people should not be afraind of their government. The governemnt should be afraid of its people."

Who is V?
V (indicating his mask):"This visage, no mere veneer of vanity,
is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the
once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what
they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation,
stands vivified, and has vowed to vangquish these venal and virulent vermin
vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and
veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily,
this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my
very good honor to meet you and you may call me V."

Evey: Are you like, a crazy-person?

But I think, it has a little bit of People Power drama in it. Hayy... Boys will love this film, not just for Natalie Portman but for something else ;) Go watch it now!

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!
