Smoke Free and Running Divas...

Happy Easter! I know I have been blogging about this ever since but Lent is the Christian holiday that I am most passionate about. I dunno why. Maybe, it's the deep Catholic teachings of my religion teachers, my mom's strictness about Good Friday (patay ang Dyos anak, wag maingay) or my propensity to like anything to do about personal sacrifice and agony (yep, martir kung martir ever ang drama).

As part of my personal sacrifice, I did not smoke for the duration of the holy week, and damn, it felt good. So, as part of the healthy lifestyle, I therefore, QUIT SMOKING!

This is also related to the new running event that Vanene and I would like to join, the Microsoft IE 8 Launch on May 24 - we're doing the 12 KM run! Vanene does not know it yet, but I think we will! I am targeting a 12 lb weight lost to run this on my target time of 1 hour and 45 minutes. Yes, kaya namin itoh!

Apart from smoking, I am also going to stop (que horror) eating chocolates, and anything sweet (except for fruits) and run three times a week. (yeah , right?) I will do this! :)

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! :)
