The most scenic 10K ever :)

Who could have thought that this will happen? Whenever Guru Cads and I talk about the races we were in, he would tell me how organized and high tech the runs here in the US are. They have pacers, micro-chip chuva and the like and he will always tell me to try to run here in the US when I have the chance. I would always retort that,"Asa pa.... nde naman ako ma-o-onshore :)" So, voila, fate is really good and yesterday, the unimaginable happened, I ran the 10K in the U. S. of A! :) (sniff, sniif, drama!).

I was excited that last Friday, I was all jittery and extra perky! I even bought new shirt and body guard (this helps prevent chaffing!). The day of the event, I was not able to sleep for fear that I won't wake up on time. But I did, and guru Cads and I took the train to go to ever famous Minnehaha park (Nike and I almost jumped off this - we found out that we will only injure ourselves if we did).

The train was full of runners! This is really a running nation. Cute guys and gals in shorts.. (awww... eh sa Pilipinas parang blank faces when you're going to tell them, I am going to run tomorrow...). The runners come from all ages and all shapes and sizes (marami akong ka-size in fairness and so bigger pa but they're fast dude!).

The route was so pretty and nice. The suburbs, the lake, the bridge, the trees.. awwww.. clean air!!!! No pollution, no cars honking behind you.. the race was so organized! Get this, they have a microchip that you attach to your shoe that will record your time real time! You could also hear your name as you approach the finish line.. awww.. Antonette de Heysus.. (yun lang) hahaha.. :) Feeling mo nanalo ka na rin kahit dekada bago ko natapos..hahaha :)

It was fun! And I am really thankful to guru Cads for this day :) I am looking for another run and probably a bike chuva. Hay... spring is in the air! :)

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 …
