Things I love about Manila

Why do you still want to stay here in the Philippines?

- Why not? Listed below are some realizations I had these past few days:
1. Lots of friends, family and others...
2. Where else will you experience an earthquake and everyone is crowding around and laughing? And everyone has the same line, "Nahihilo lang ba ako oh lumilindol?" We put humour in everything....
3. Hotels are the new militiary standoffs. High brow places? Nahhh... machine guns lang katapat niyan at si Trillanes. The great equalizer, military power... so in a way, everything is relatively fair.... Imagine, wedding mo and then apprearance the manongs in military outfitzzz. the best!
4. Yesterday, a gay bar offered to have their rooms rented for those staying until the military curfew is lifted? Curfew? That's just another opportunity to extend PARTY TIME! :) I was thinking of going out at 1 am just to know what will happen to me, but I fell asleep at 10:45 pm... darn it!

There is no dull day in Manila, each nook and cranny can be a telenovela scene and compare that with the nizeness and order of other countries where one can get bored and turn into a serial killer? :)

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... 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.
