Androgynous Identity and my "boyfriend" for the night

"Boss, get a number..." I didn’t look at him at first but then I realized that the bank security guard was asking me to get a number for the queue. Anak ng! I think sporting a short hair will increase the probability of me being body searched again.

When I entered the mall, there were two arrows, one for males and one for females. As I was entering, the male guard was preparing to inspect my bag, but then I hurried to the female guard then I heard her muttered, "babae (female)" to her fellow guard.

My friend Justin and I watched the latest Harry Potter film. It was good! But of course, my favorite HP film is still Azkaban (Alfonso rocks!). It was late so we rode the taxi and as he was the first one to get off, manong driver asked me, "San nakatira boyfriend mo... (Where does your boyfriend live?). Without batting an eyelash, I just told him the he lives somewhere north.

I didn't correct him for it will take more time and energy to explain that Justin is not my boyfriend and he is very happy with his current boyfriend. HAHAHAHA! It will sound complicated I tell you but I think that what makes our friendship last. I may not be his baby maker (I think we're just going to crack up if we do it), but we have a bond that is always there even if we haven’t seen each other for a long time. Love you Justin!

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.

Aside …
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!
