Still Images...

I am still here in Minneapolis, blogging my night away. I am here with my inaanak, Bibe the stuff toy who I kidnapped from her mommy Congee and soon to be daddy Mabby. Yes, I have a soft spot for stuff toys, and I admit I love EMO songs.

It's a good thing that I am here in Minneapolis with great photographers. Rorie, Xtian and Chris are so good. I realized that we need photos to capture moments in our lives. Our youth, energy and zest for living will not be with us for long. We have to live life, and let the images speak for themselves. (pagbigyan niyo na, ngayon lang ako nagkapicture ng ganyan.. haha :) )

This is me!

this is me.. exactly

Of all pictures taken of me, this is how I want to be remembered. Someone with a smile on here face, walking at a leisurely pace, enjoying life as I pass by. There are people always walking with me, thank God. I am happy to be part of their lives as they have been a part of mine.

I walk, therefore I am. Will you walk with me? :)

The girls of Minneapolis

Ros and Nette

"Nette, diet tayo ha, tapos gym.." That's Rorie, my partner in crime in Minneapolis. After uttering these words, we find ourselves at a restaurant with Xtian and Chris, eating and having a good laugh. Ok, promise, we'll start our diet next time. "Promise?" , ah ehhh.. hahaha :) Cheat day?

The downtown Minneapolis gang..

And now, we're the fab four :) Every weekend, we have to go out. Not just to save our sanity but to enjoy each other's company. Sight seeing, eating and laughing.. :) This is so different from my last Minneapolis assignment. I think the first on-shore assignment is the most telenobela-ic but this one, I am enjoying the calm and the people I am with. EMO lang ng EMO... it's better to dwell in being lovestruck than to live life in a box with walls to guard you but at the same time, slowly gnaw your humanity away...

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.

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! :)
