I had a moment

I am going to maximize my stay here and bombard my blog with my misadventures so bear with me.

I had a very funny experience yesterday. Cads (the running guru) pinged me and told me that there's free food at the 10th floor. I said sure, accompany me please. So, that I don't have to worry about dinner anymore.. wehehehe... It's a kind of celebration for the end of Ramadan by our Arab/Indian co-employees. So, I went up, ready to eat!

It was fun! There were people there wearing their native costumes. We grabbed paper plates and I picked anything that perked my curiosity. I had dates? Liked it... then I had a "spicy" cookie. There was that mala-curry taste again so I didn't dig that.

Cads played ping-pong with some guys. I watched him and enjoyed the game. I played eons ago so I didn't dare play because they might laugh at me. Then, the ball kept on going to my direction. So I pick it up and give it to this guy. He said "thank you" and I said "you're welcome". He looks kinda cute. In an Agassi (Hunks member) sort of way.

Then when I went back to my desk, the support guy that I work with while I was in Manila via AIM asked me if I would like to eat Indian food. I said yes, I went up and had my fill. I liked those with sugar I told him. Then he asked me:
Agasi: "do you wear spects?"
Anto: "yup, i wear glasses"
Agasi: "do you wear a ponytail?"
Anto: (thinking.. this guy saw me)... "yep, you saw me, I was the big girl in blue" (forgive me pogie I was again wearing my fave color combo blue shirt and brown slacks....)
Agasi: "So, I didn't see you then" (awww.. sweet... so, was I huge? not big? haaha)
Anto: "I watched my friend play pingpong."
Agasi: "I played. "
Anto: "What were you wearing?"
Agasi: "I was wearing a black shirt kinda sweater."
Anto: "Yep, I saw you. "
Agasi: "Aha, you gave me the ball once."
Anto: "yep, nice to meet you... in a funny, weird way. "
Agasi: "Nice to meet you too, in a weird way... hahaha. "

hay.. wala lang. It's such a small world.

P.S. My gym schedule is 430 am because I am waiting for this cute guy who go there at that hour. HAH! Effort!

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.

My new blue I-POD!!! Love ko itoh!

My new blue IPOD!!! Love ko itoh!
Originally uploaded by amazonangbading. Last Saturday, I woke up earlier than usual for a weekend morning. Texted Dahon and Coultrophobic Clown, my head filled with excitement because I am going to have my own... I-PUD!!!

Dahon and I went store to store in search of the Holy Grail --- I-pod (green for her, blue for me... and with a SOCK!).

First Store --- No more blue or green 4 Gig I-pods, and No socks....

Second Store --- Yehey, there is a green 4 Gig Ipod, there's a blue one as well... and with socks! But alas, Citibank Credit card not accepted. grrr... (sayang, cute pa naman the guy who assisted us.. oh well)..

Third Store --- Boring Store, All of the above as Second Store (but the guy wasn't cute... hihihi)

Fourth Store --- There's a 4 Gig Green I-pod, no blue one.. Oh well, I can take any color... as long as it's not PINK! But the blasted manager was very mataray, and we (both Librans) felt her unkindness... and for what? I-Pod so…
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…
