With the falling of the leaves I bid Adieu

As I drove along I-35WN, I could see Downtown Minneapolis from afar. The city is beautiful. It's not New York nor Chicago but it is a charming city that has a special place in my heart. Maybe because it holds so many memories for me. This is the place that I called home for six months this year and 8 months the previous year. If not for its infamous winter chills, I would love to stay here for good.

In retrospect, this is the perfect time for me to leave, the chilly winds are coming back and the colors of the falling leaves match my new hair :) The humid air of Manila is calling me back and the piper is ushering me to go home to where my heart is.

It's true that I measure time and achievements by the people that I meet and the moments that we share. As one movie quote goes, "I know what the secret of a good life is, friends... best friends..." I could never find the perfect partner for me yet, but I sure found the perfect kindred spirits to share the journey of life with. My type of people are of two types - kaladkarin and may mga sari-sariling topak and I say this in the most positive manner. And I am lucky that I had tons of them here in Minneapolis.

I had my final walk around the city awhile ago and I can't wait to go home to chaotic Manila. All I can really say right now is.. finally.. "MINNEAPOLIS ADVENTURE 2008 - Accomplished..."

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 …
