Visions or hallucinations?....and some tawts

It's Christmas day! Of course, the tradition in our household is still followed. During Christmas day, my belly is still bloated from last night's dinner and my apologetic rhetoric to everyone..."Sorry wala akong gift ha. :(". My candid brother will remark, "What else is new? " So I just give them money and let them shop what they want.. wala talaga akong wenta. I am a bane to a consumerist society.

Anyway, while my family is out shopping, I am smoking my father's Philip Morris yosi. Yeah, I don't smoke when my mom's around, and my father is a Philip Morris fan so beggars cannot be choosy. While I was puffing the cigarette in a hurry since my family might come back earlier than expected, I realized that the Philip Morris cigarette is surprisingly long. Mauubusan ka na ng hininga at pagmumuni-muni before mo matapos ang isang stick. Compared to a Marlboro stick that is just one story long (isang kwento lang from a friend, and short story itoh ha) and it's all gone... hahaha...

Then, I remembered a dream from way back. I was not a smoker then, but I had a dream that I was at home in Pampanga and smoking a Philip Morris cigarette. I found it so weird then because, first I don't smoke and if I do smoke, Philip Morris will be way down my list of choices and second, I had short hair. Hmmmm.. me and my dreams... Reminded me of recent dreams I had which I found so weird.. Will they also come true? :)

I have this yearning to go to a desert... the Sahara desert. I think I'll have going to Egypt and rolling down the dunes of the Sahara as one of my to-dos the coming year. Wish me luck!

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.

Originally uploaded by amazonangbading. Last Saturday, I woke up earlier than usual for a weekend morning. Texted Dahon and Coultrophobic Clown, my head filled with excitement because I am going to have my own... I-PUD!!!

Dahon and I went store to store in search of the Holy Grail --- I-pod (green for her, blue for me... and with a SOCK!).

First Store --- No more blue or green 4 Gig I-pods, and No socks....

Second Store --- Yehey, there is a green 4 Gig Ipod, there's a blue one as well... and with socks! But alas, Citibank Credit card not accepted. grrr... (sayang, cute pa naman the guy who assisted us.. oh well)..

Third Store --- Boring Store, All of the above as Second Store (but the guy wasn't cute... hihihi)

Fourth Store --- There's a 4 Gig Green I-pod, no blue one.. Oh well, I can take any color... as long as it's not PINK! But the blasted manager was very mataray, and we (both Librans) felt her unkindness... and for what? I-Pod so…
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…
