A visit from Nanny Mc-Consi

It was friday night, and I fell asleep on the couch. I was supposed to go to the gym while waiting for my surrogate mother (o sige na nga.. Ate) here in Minneapolis. I was awoken by the telephone and the perky voice that only Consi possesses.
"Bakla, papunta na ako dyannnnnnn...." (key of C sharp)

When I went down to get her, of course, she's wearing that fabulous Endless love Winter Sonata coat (it helps that she looks like a Koreana) and several paper bags containing food and red wine ). Thanks goodness she brought food.

I was kind of panicky when I realized earlier that day, that I'll be having Consi as a house guest. Why? Because, she eats like a man! She's frail, she's petite but this girl likes her food! Darn, genes!

She opened my refrigerator (scolded me because it only contained these items: cheese, chocolates and more chocolates) and she was amazed by the cleanliness of my kitchen. (of course it's clean I only boil water and microwave stuff!). Then, bless her soul she fed me again (my oh my, this might become a habit).

The next day, I left her at the house to play some badminton. It was freezing cold outside. Being comforted by the warmth of the apartment I only wore shorts and a jacket. I thought that the jacket was enough to insulate me. When I took a step ouside the apartment, I realized that it was freezing cold. I can't turn back so I just ran towards the car.

Same thing in the badminton center, I ran the hell from the car to the entrance. I was literally shaking! We played badminton, shot some hoops and I ran the indoor track. It was fun! Then, we called Consi to ask her if she's alright and I laughed when she told us that she was having a hair spa!

Anak ng, the other night, I laughed at her pink (as in floral pink) pajamas and now she's busy beautifying. Librans! (I am a Libran but my ascendant kept me from the aesthetic value of my sun sign). It was cold and I was again freezing as I walked from the car back to the apartment.

I was looking forward to the warmth of the apartment and when I entered, I realized that the windows were opened! It was cold! I looked at Consi and she has plastic wrap on her hair, typing away enjoying the freezing breeze of Minneapolis air. She never fails to amaze me.

Then, at 1:00 am, I was wide awake. We were watching Scrubs and she suddenly remarked:
"What an experience this day is, dinalhan kita ng food pero sinira mo na body clock ko.... at pinakain mo pa ako ng sardinas for dinner and breakfast!" I laughed so hard, I fell off the couch. HAHAHA!

I look forward to the days ahead. I know I have to shape up, I can't live like this for long, it's fine when it's only me. But when you're going to have a roommate, I have to buy more nutritious food. But before that, I am going to enjoy tormenting Consi with instant noodles, delata, pancit canton and the heat of the apartment (the heater must always be on High!). Thanks Consi, you're really something :)

A nice, glorious day all in all :)

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…
