Thoughts galore...

My roomie and I will be going home for the holidays in a few days time and I can see that she is very excited. She has prepared her luggage and she has this big grin on her face.

We will be going over to Manila via New York, the big Apple! Thank heavens Nike was able to book the flights. I can't wait to experience for myself what the fuss is all about.

My roomie

Now about Nike, which I have shared the last two months or so, and again for the next four months next year.

I know that I have always been a loner and I have fought to overcome it during the day but when evening time comes, I am back to my authistic self and thus, I live alone at my apartment in Manila so as to spare an innocent person of the confusion of living with a person with N personalities.

Here in Minnea, Nike came and tanan! I found out that if the personalities matched, rooming can be fun! She is the ideal roommate for me I guess. She lets me be, which is a big plus because sometimes I don't even recognize myself. We have this giggling fits when we just laugh and just can't stop. hahahaha... :)

It really is true that opposites work well.

- She wears pink, I wear blue.
- She shops, I like to carry the bags.
- She reminds me things I forget (items on our grocery list, my allergic reaction to wheat and time of our appointments), I remind her to drink her vitamins and to sleep early at night. Oooh, and she reminds me to put lotion on. Yep, the cold here causes bleeding and cracked skin but I tell her, I'd rather bleed than put lotion on. I know I can be stubborn!
- I do the heavy lifting, she decides for the two of us (I know, deciding takes too much of my energy; which brand of chips to have, what kind of rice to buy, what will be our itinerary for the day, etc).

If Nike was not here, I'll spend my days looking at the window and dream. When she was not here, my ref contents consist of chocolates, and cheese. When I had her here, I started to cook to keep us nourish (I think I became overnourished!). She keeps me grounded to reality and I thank her for that. :) I look forward to our next months as roomies but for now, we're going home! :)

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…
Family Vacation - Dec 2013 - Davao

In my 30+ years of existence, we never had a family vacation outside of Luzon. Last December 2013, mama, my bro and I went to Davao to "train" mama to ride a plane. I think she liked it and it's going to be the first of many travels for her.

 I miss them but I am looking forward to our next adventure! :)
