Life Goes On...

I was down with a cold last week, I didn't want to stay home because I was aiming for the Health Bonus (Bonus given in our company for those with 0 or only 1 sick leave availed). Sayang din!

It's hard to get sick when you live alone. It helps to have Biogesic and Neozep at your disposal. wehehehehe... I need a kept-boy fast...

One month to go and I'll be turning 28. It should be a magical year for me because I'll be turning 28 on the 28th of September and I was born on 1978, too much 8s... hahaha... yes, I also believe in numerology, 8s and 6s are my favorite numbers.

The search for the next Philippine Idol is looking to be an interesting battle. If you only have so-so talent, then you'll be easily eliminated. We really are the factory of entertainers!

Just some interesting characters (of course, I forgot their names):

1. A cross-dressing man who looks and sings like a girl. I was interested to find out how "she" will be categorized when the groups are formed. Yep, they went for the biological gender. She will be grouped with the men. Let's see how she'll deliver the uuummpp!

2. A belter diva married to a man named "Mocca" who wore pink hot pants during the audition with matching brown hair streaks. They look so cute together. Question: if a gay guy marries a woman, does that un-gay him and makes him straight? hmmm...

3. A guy from Julliard... (if he's from Julliard then he must be gay?).... he sings theatrically....

4. A tomboy who looked so familiar when I fist saw her in the Manila auditions. Turns out that she's part of the band that I watched a few months back. It was an "all-boys" group, then I noticed that she had boobs, so there.

Only in the Philippines will you have these colorful characters, there are still more... so watch out... Ohhh.. OJ Mariano from the contest "Search for Star in a Million" is also a contestant... whew! That guy has fighting spirit.

AMEN! Got to nurse this cold.. grrrr...

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!
