Oh my Gawd!.. Ano daw?... What da monument??? Am I real? Where am I? There's something that went to my brain and messed up my psyche when I read the Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami!

I was surprised when I bought this book and went to Dahon's place to get something and saw a copy of the Wind Up Bird Chronicle on her countertop table (with a different publication and cover). Talk about synchronicity. There must be a star/moon alignment in Libra to read something Alice in Wonderlandish lately.

I cant't describe this book correctly in my opinion. It just tickled my mind and imagination and of course, the words.. the arrangement of words was mouth agaping.

It's a book not to be understood and deciphered in the usual sense. You just have to accept it. No explanations... You have to just devour it... You have to turn off something in your logical brain and just let the right side do the reading.. but in the long run it can be tiring so I have to stagger read - hahaha!

My sense of reality was morped a night after reading a chapter... whew!

Ok, the old debate, is Haruki Murakami a good writer or is his translator the true genius?

A lot of Japanese inspired novels coming out lately and they're like a breath of fresh air. Those darn Japanese are so smart! I am now currently watching this uber-duber longest suspension bridge that they are making and they're so frighteningly precise and logical.

I just realized that Yoko Ono is the genius behind John Lennon. Hmmm.... Arigato!

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

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.
