I choose to love...


I received a text message yesterday from Osang the text addictus:
" love not because you like the person....
not because you care...
love not because you know that you cannot live without that person..
just love... without knowing why..."

It's the month of February once again, and this is the first time I am going to spend it with someone special (given that we don't fight again next week.. hahaha :)). This love business is complicated and yet simple. I know the theories/rules but my gawd, it's different when applied (Applied Sciences are more useful in real life, but you need the general theories first to ground yourself right?).

What have I learned this past few months about love?
- Infatuation can be mistaken for love.
- The challenge and excitement of the chase can be mistaken for love.
- You don't feel lovey doey all the time, sometimes you fight and when both of you are hormonal... world war III itoh..
- Love without expecting anything in return. This will solve everything but my gulay.. ang hirap pala nitoh... hindi nga lang sumagot sa text warla na...
- Love can make you do things you never thought possible.
- Love is about commitment and once you choose the one you'll love, just do everything to make it worth.

Yes, I have been blogging about letting go of someone but I think I am just scared of falling for her more. I am scared to lose her so I was thinking of letting go before I cross the point of no return. But I have been a coward all my life, and I have to go through with this.

"Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds.." sabi nga ni pareng Shakespeare... even if I sprained my ankle and a text message arrives..."How's your feet?" :) Well, as my friend Osang told me..."You can never find everything you're looking for in one person.."

Just be thankful that the Universe has sent you someone who will teach you lessons that you can never find in books...

So, just love... love and love... without knowing why... so that at the end of my days... I'll gladly answer the question.."How do you measure your life?" with a resounding.."What about love?..."

awwww... ako ba talaga nag-advice nyan??? hahaha! in fairness parang matalino ako sa love (yeah right haha!)! go dre! nakaka-tanga talaga ang love pero you can't deny naman the happiness that comes with it. ;-) basta go go lang but don't forget din naman na magtira ng para sa sarili mo. in the end, we still have to love ourselves to go on with life. naxx!

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! :)
