You Changed My Life





My alibi for watching this movie is my mother dear. She was bugging me the whole week when I will come home so we could watch Sarah Geronimo and John Loyd's latest flick (Mama, watched a concert of Sarah all be her lonesome when I was in Minneapolis, that's a testament on how she's a fan of Sarah G). Being the dutiful daughter, I obliged (of course, at the back of my head, I really liked the first movie, A very Special Kind of love and I was also excited on the second installment).

The movie was short and sweet. Of course the first movie is still better but this movie as Vanene told me was more realistic. It also made me cry since the issues that Miguel and Loida faced in the move were the same issues I had eons back. I can relate and I can't let my mom see my tears hahahaha...

The group of Matet, Gio, et al were the backbone of the movie. Favorite lines in the movie:
"Ang haba ng hair mo..", then they proceeded to mimic a gang of friends lifting Rapunzel's long hair..
"Para kang puzzle, umaga palang, binubuo mo na ang araw ko.." I know, this is an old line already, but the way that Sarah said it made me laugh..
"kung sino man ang Loidang yan, siguro pagud na pagod na sya. Kasi kanina pa syang umaga tumatakbo dyan sa isipan mo.." Said in a deadpan manner by a veteran actress will truly make you smile.

And this line, I truly can relate:
"Jealous? I am not jealous, I don't get jeolous...ngayon lang.. " Hayyy... I am the jealous type and I really get Miggy's sentiments on that scene.

The movie was peppered with pop mush. But what can I say... I love mainstream sentiments and I left the moviehouse with a smile because, sometimes, we must enjoy what we have in the now... love is a gift, and while it's there, you should make the most out of it... and the song "You changed my life..." is a favorite of mine.. sshhhh..

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!
