Last Friday, I was so excited to watch the movie 300. I was trying to persuade Congee to watch it with this line, "Imagine 300 absses (plural? hehe)!"

And I was not disappointed with the movie. I liked the cinematography; it has the same feel as that of Sin City. As guru Cads informed me, this was based on a graphic novel. This was definitely better than Troy. Sin City + Troy + Macho Dancer... yahoo!

It illustrated military strategy (it showed how you can beat a large army with hilly unfamiliar terrain and great fighting skills). It makes you think of the wonders of the human body when properly trained for war. But Xerxes (the god-ruler of Persia who looked like a heavily made-up drag queen) was painfully distracting. He was not beautiful enough! hehehe...

But some of the scenes bored me like when they try to be profound. I fidgeted on my seat, "Stop the talking and continue with the killing!" The movie has great action scenes! It makes you want to grab the nearest spear you can get your hands on and throw it to the person who pisses you the most.. bwahahaha...

Go see it! If you don't like war, imagine those buff men shouting in fratlike unison.... "Aaarrruuu..." (that was how I heard their chanting...)

We are experiencing a heat wave! 30+ degree F, not bad! I had a good workout at the gym this morning. No pain on the knees.. yahoo! Afterwhich of course, I attended to my hobby. I cooked (for next week's baon) and cleaned again. I am really a homebody. And of course, thanks to Congee, good sound tripping! Her speaker really rocks! Cooking while listening to music... Heaven!

------------------

I am really a simple person with simple needs. A good book and nice music on the background and I am at peace with the universe... hayyyyy.. life can be so sweet..

AMEN!

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…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
