It's worth it pala...

This makes it all worthwhile..... a picture of the reward for all of the sleepless nights, tears and dancing to the tune of kapag tumibok ang puso.... it's official...

This is so sweet....

UAT moments:

- Running batch then the log file read... Aborted in process... I shouted.. "teka lang" and all the expats looked at me while I investigated to find out what happened.

- All the coding has left me dizzy one day and at the end of the day I explained to the client, "Off invoice deals have no explosion.." shet..

- I fell asleep after the 10 th day of UAT while my roomie was excitedly waiting for me since this is the first time we're going to go home early.

- At 2 am, I read an email and I cried (with heaving shoulders...) and one time I hid inside the table... gawd, I can only laugh at those moments right now..

- I was running our batch script when our counterpart asked me, "Nette, what are you doing?" I told him, "Running batch?"... He told me.." xxx aborted.." "HUWAATTT?"-roomie and I shouted in unison.

- Last Friday, sigh of relief, finally UAT sign off day, roomie and I were walking along the store and I sang "you're irressistible..." as it was the music booming from the store's sound system, my roomie nonchalantly answered... "i know..". As in, I was laughing so hard.... HAHAHA! Peace dre!

Thanks dre for everything... :)

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…
