Grey's Anatomy

We're still on a DVD marathon mode, after Gilmore Girls (which we stopped for awhile due to someone's inability to read the subtitles because of ahhh ehhh...ssshhh), Nike has purchased on a price cut season 1 of Grey's Anatomy (yes, Nike is the shopper of the household, hands up!). Grey's Anatomy rocks!

I liked Scrubs in a funny way but Grey's Anatomy is guilty pleasure (in the league of Seventh Heaven and Touched by an Angel).

Why did I like it? I am not so sure, but I love the ensemble, their personalities and their quirks. It's just a bunch of cute doctors, with emotions, feelings, and imperfections. It's a show about being human, flawed but wonderful.

It made me realized that I am not alone in fearing vulnerability, of walling myself as not to get hurt. How do you keep people at a distance and live with yourself knowing that you're going to be alone for the rest of your life because your fear of getting hurt is so bad that you have to shoo people away (thanks congee for the spelling). Yes, they might be close now, but what will you do if they go away. I just can't take that anymore. Yes, I know, I chose distance, because of one word - PRESERVATION. (naks-drama mode!)

Why does everybody seem to fall for Meredith Grey?

She's not that pretty (not as pretty as Izzie), but I think she has this air of melancholy and sadness, a vulnerability that touches one's need to protect somebody. People want to feel needed and Grey is a person you would like to protect from all the harshness. She also looks so dreamy, thus, explaining her tandem with Dr. Mc Dreamy... hahaha...

I love the quotes... I have to stop at some point because some lines hit home so bad that I can hear my heart thawing and cracking with the pressure.. argh!

Ohhhh, and my favourite characters are Christina and Alex (yup, the jerkass who is not apologetic for who he is...).

Lines from Grey:

"At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

"At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines... that are way too dangerous to cross. "

"We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying. "

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.

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…
