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.

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 …
