Remarks to the Androgynous


(Photos of Shane from the L-Word.. Aydol!)

Since I cut my hair short, I have been mistaken as either a boy or a gay man. Yes! I am used to it by now, but the only thing that I am scared of is being mistaken for a man and being body searched (yep, nakapkapan na ako, and it was traumatic, hahaha).

Some funny comments:

- I am ordering my usual Burger Mc Do Meal with Sundae and the cashier asked me, "Sir, ano pa order niyo?" Then, using the girliest voice, "Pa-upsize naman." Then, priceless, the shock on her face and then she said, "Yun lang po ba ma'am?" hahaha..

- Another food chain, same scenario, but the greeting went, "Hi Sir, ay, ma'am pala.." pati sya natawa.. hahaha.

- The cashier at the local supermarket, "Sir, 540 po..", then I just played along... "Sir, i-separate ko ba tong shampoo?" Then, as she was putting the stuff on a plastic bag, I told her..."Uy, ma'am ako.." The shock again on her face and she profusely apologized....hahahhaha..

- I was going to the ladies section of the MRT train, then the guard was looking at me because he thought I was a man, then I just puffed my chest a little bit to let him know that I have BREASTS!

- My best friend is gay and we usually walk holding hands along the mall so when we entered a food chain, they assumed that we were a gay couple. They just greeted us, "Hi Sir, what's your order?" Then, we were holding hands and playing lovey doey, then I said in the girliest voice again,"We'll have one cappucino and one mocha latte." Again, the shock on the cashier's face... priceless!

- This just happened yesterday, I was walking along the Ayala MRT terminal and there was this girl who was giving out flyers, then she said, "Hi Sir, Hi Ma'am" (when she realized I was a girl), hahahahaha... real time ang pag-correct, winner! So, that greeting goes to the androgynous moi.. :)

I really dig my androgynous look.. HAHAHA! :)

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…
Family Vacation - Dec 2013 - Davao

In my 30+ years of existence, we never had a family vacation outside of Luzon. Last December 2013, mama, my bro and I went to Davao to "train" mama to ride a plane. I think she liked it and it's going to be the first of many travels for her.

 I miss them but I am looking forward to our next adventure! :)
