Shock... shock... and sleep

This day has been hazy, hazy and hazy.

Back story: We transferred office from Ayala to Pioneer a few months back so we haven't been in Glorietta for a long, long time.

A while ago: We went to Glorietta to arrange our team building activity (around lunch time). First sentence that came out of my mouth upon stepping inside was: "Iba talaga ang totoong mall :)"

Then we ate lunch at Food Choices, nothing unusual, just the normal chit chat and then, while heading back, we saw a commotion. The activity center was filled with smoke, and then, all hell broke loose.

All were rushing/running to the entrance. After some panicky run, we were outside the mall. We saw people coming out, covered in blood, powder white substance on their faces. The thought that came into my head was to get back to the office as fast as possible. That was the most surreal bus ride for me.

While preparing for some meeting in the afternoon, it hit all of us. We were in shock, there was this heavy weight on our hearts. We saw the pictures and gawd, some of us walked there on the way a few minutes before the explosion. They could have stayed longer has it not for the interest of time. If they did, oh my.. :(

It's just so unreal.
After a bomb attack is the great time to be in any mall. Not that much people and security is tight ;) Gerry bear and I watched a movie and for the first time after a long, long time, I fell asleep inside a cinema. The Seeker - seek out of it but if you want a comfy snooze... by all means.. go! :)

Still hazyyy.. still in shock.. and I am not in my zone right now...

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 …
