Obama Rocks!

As I was reading Rorie's pile of Time magazines, I realized that the world is changing at a faster velocity and here I am wallowing in self pity. Ahhh... time for drastic change... I have to get into the groove again. There's more to life than my EMOing.

Call it plain laziness, but I have been in intellectual stupor for the past few months... blame it on post-adolescense syndrome (late na paglandi :)). But as I try to have my brain cells working again, I can't believe that I only noticed it now - how charismatic and brilliant Obama is! I am no judge if he'll make a great leader but he sure is a good speaker, and he has a very magnetic personality. He's like a breeze of fresh air! (In Philippine politics, I foresee Mar Roxas doing an Obama, and Kris Aquino as a wonderful VP :)).

Obama has a great sense of timing, he is very articulate... and the man can dance! America is at the brink of national recession (if not into recession already) and all are in dire need of change. Will Obama deliver? Only time can tell... but for now, he and Michelle Obama make a great team reminiscent of the Bill and Hiillary tandem.

What impressed me most is how the internet revolutionized politics. Obama is backed by the grassroots, people writing checks, volunteering their time to organize teams to back Obama. It's quite inspiring! If Mar Roxas should run, I see myself there in the trenches, I dunno why, but I see hope in Mar... of course, with the beautiful Korina on his side :)

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! :)
