Some Random Thingeys...

I loved the movie Star Trek! When the first shot of the starship Enterprise was shown, I was in awe. I was a huge fan of the Star Trek 2nd Generation Series and I had a great desire to don the Star Fleet uniform. I wanted mine to be Red like Commander Ricker :)

I watched the original Star Trek on Hulu.com a couple of months back and I can't help but wonder how different Captain Kirk and Captain Picard were. Captain Picard has a serene presence and he exudes such competence that you know he could tackle even the bad boys of Deep Space - those Romulans.

I watched a couple of Star Trek movies also and I think there was a movie where Spock and Data interacted, it was such a sight to behold. I think I am going to be a Star Fleet officer in my next life!

I fell asleep during the first part of Angels and Demons. I don't know if it was because it was late or because the movie really sucked. The good thing about the movie was I got to do a tour of the Vatican.

Ewan was a poor choice for the role of the Camerlengo. He is a good actor but when he goes on screen, I am waiting for him to get his light saber or burst into song, "Come What May...".

Tom Hanks did a better job on this movie but again, I really think he was not fit to play Langdon. Oh well, it was not bad, but it was not that great either.

Latest food find: Red Mango (located at Megamall) - Mommie and I got addicted to the yogurt of Red Mango. I am not a great fan of yogurt but Red Mango really did a good job of altering the flavor to satisfy the Filipino taste buds. Yum! And it did great wonders to my digestion. My favorite toppings are Corn Flakes and Kiwi! :)

Dahon made me read this article on the New Yorker about How david beats Goliath. It's an article on how the Davids can beath the Goliaths if they were caught by surprise. Davids can win if after the surprise will come the follow through. Since like an AI machine, an initial action that is not contained on its training set will create havoc on its system. But like Goliaths in our society, they will then adjust and create the rules. So act fast and act swift, to conquer your Goliaths.

Defying convention is one of my principles in life. I easily get bored projecting only one persona. It's one of my core values in life (naks).I always love to play Devil's Advocate.

It's a good week and we're going to run the 5k Earth Run next Sunday. Good luck to me hahaha :) Eat, pray and love - heard this from dahon and this is so me.... not necessarily on the specified order.

AMEN!

have you ever given thought that maybe defying convention is a convention?

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!
