Love, Friendship and... Fashion!



The familiar tune, and then the narration and then, that giant crochage! Carrie and the girls are back! :)

Carrie is not beautiful but man, she sure can carry herself well and don fashionable clothes. She can pull off any outfit, that I am sure. Charlotte is still the sweet girl that I liked. Samantha is like wine, she gets better with age :) Miranda, now that's my girl. If I were to pick one character in the series that closely resemble my personality, it's Miranda. I am paranoia incarnate.

My favourite scenes: The giant closet, New Year's eve and of course, the Brooklyn bridge scene in which I felt that there were tears in my eyes.

I liked this series because it reminded me of my girlfriends and my gayfriends. One of my fun moments in life is just having coffee and catching up with them... even if we go home at 5 am in the morning just chattering the minutes away :)

Book Review: AT FIRST SIGHT (Nicholas Sparks)


Yeah, I know, I don't read mushy, romantic books. But I needed a book I could read that wouldn't make me think. I needed a quick literary fix in my system. This was a telenovela in paperback, I swear! I cringe at the mushy moments but the estrogen in me was screaming for release. And so, again, I cried at the end, hahaha.. :)

How would you know that you met the right person? Answer: You just know... geez, cheesy... but awwww.. it got to me somehow. This book is a guilty pleasure. It reminded me of ideas put forth by John Gray in "Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus." I recommend this book to couples who want to understand their partner more. The gender divide is such a complex art, and yet so simple.

Characters dying at unexpected times make me cry... Danielle Steele used this formula eons ago and it never fails to get to me. Falling in love is great, when it's with the right person...

AMEN! 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…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
