The Curious Incident of the GA condo robbery...


It's like a scene from one of Murakami's novels... so surreal... I entered the condo and everything was as it was when we left it. Then, curious.... the sofa is missing something... several seconds to register... OMG... the laptop is missing. Not to panic, maybe brother hid it somewhere.. but.. but.. we went home at the same time two days ago! Checked the door.. no forced entry!

Then, my bro was saying that it's just there.. duhhh... it's not in the universe that is our room. Then, as I was waiting for bro, I sniffed the air... someone was here... a male one. Then, OMG, he went up my room! And there yah go, my old celphone and I-pod were gone :( I can still sense his presence... and I just thought.. atleast he has new stuff to use: a laptop whose battery is not working, a celphone with no charger and a used I-pod that I inherited from bro.

This experience made me glad that I am not the type to acquire things. What if I really have things of monetary value what then? Makes me believe that things are like people, there's a time that you just have to let go....

If I have your number and a stranger texted you out of the blue (not my Globe number) and asking you for information, ignore please!

The Universe has given and the universe has taken away... I wish he's happy.. and may he never come back to my room! :) argh!

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!
