My Cinderella

It was October 2008, and I was in Minneapolis doing my last minute shopping. I remembered to stock up on rubber shoes since we all know how pricey they can be here in the Philippines. I bought a pair of Sauchony running shoes a few months back and they were perfect for me.

I went to my favorite sports store where they still remember me.
Attendant: You're back! Wait, size 8 right?
Toni: Yep!

Without glancing, I got the shoes, and I didn't try them on anymore since I was in a hurry. Besides, it was the exact replica of what I bought previousy,just a different color.

When I went back home to try them on, they were too big, size 9. Oh well, I didn't have the energy to drive back just to return the shoes. Besides, I can still wear them if I wear two socks. :)

Fast forward time about 3 months:
Toni: Hey Car, want to play badminton?
Mommie Car: I don't have rubber shoes, I don't play badminton regularly.
Toni: What is your shoe size?
Mommie Car: 9
Toni: Perfect, I have extra. They don't fit me, but I think they will fit you :)

AMEN :)

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... 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.
