A night of music and love

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

It's becoming a tradition between my bro and I to watch musicals during Christmas eve. Last year I think we watched "Singing in the Rain", and last night we watched
"Rent - the Musical". Oh gawd, I didn't know what hit me. I watched the Philippine production of this musical with Monique and Calvin Millado and it was just ok. But seeing it on film and reading the subtitles, I fully understood every song, every scene.

I think I watched the scene wherein they sang "Seasons of Love" a couple of times and I want to watch it again and again. The timing was good since the movie started December 24, 1989 and lasted until the next year. About a year of love for eight friends. It will really hit you, it will make you think -
"How do you measure a year... how about love?"

Memorable Lines:

"Forget regret, or life is yours to miss
No other road, no other way
No day but today."

"I can't control
My destiny
I trust my soul
My only goal is just to be
There's only now
There's only here
Give in to love
Or live in fear
No other path
No other way."

"I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are my love,
On life - all my life
I've longed to discover
Something as true as this is."

Hay, renting love so you can have a new lease on life... not bad...

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.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
