MMFF 2008

I made my contribution to the Filipino Film Industry... by watching not just one.. but two MMFF film entries. Iskul Bukol for nostalgic reasons and Desperadas 2 for some eye candy. In Iskul Bukol, I was waiting for Tonette Macho. I have a very vivid memory of Tonette Macho. He was big like me and in my mind, I don't want to be Tonette Macho. I don't know why. Also when I was young, my aunt gave me a doll, a red doll with my name satin stitched (yes, memorized ko pa ang type of stitch) -- TONETTE. That's why I hate it when people call me Tonette. I remember that doll and Tonette Macho. Weird...

When the old cast assembled on stage, I smiled when I saw Tonette. They all asked him, "Tonette, how are you?" He remarked, "I am not Tonette anymore, I found the light..from the grace of God. I am Anthony now..." Ay, pareho kami ng sentiment. Tonette din ako dati, then I found the light.. :)

In Desperadas 2, I was staring the whole time at Marianne Rivera. I love that girl. Even if palengkera galore sya. My mom hates her because she was the reason Dindong and Karel broke up. Yes, my mom is really updated. Lord, when I saw One True Love and saw Marianne clutching Dingdong's arms crying.. "Migs, wag mo akong iwan.." I knew Dingdong had no chance :) And heller, the whole time the two of them are on screen, Marianne will be not more than 10 cm away from Dingdong. Higpit yumakap! So, I wouldn't blame Dingdong.. bad man.. pero.. naman! :)

Ok, my boredom is really evident on my blog. I am blogging everyday! Unti na lang... :)

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! :)
