Mommie's day

Photobucket

Today is my Mommie's birthday. I wish I was with her on this special day. But of course she's with me always especially when I am around food :)

This is one of the first pictures that I saw of Karidad, heck, who wouldn't fall for this right? :) Almost a year ago, I always read her profile several times and wished that she would give me the time of day :) I am glad that she did :) I still have to say thank you to the makers of that site.

I know that this is a mushy post but who cares. They always say that we are in the honeymoon stage because we're always happy. I don't want to jinx it but the year that I was with this woman is the best year that I have had in this lifetime well, apart from passing UPCAT of course.. hahaha..

She was everything that I prayed for and I always knew that I'll find her at 30 :) I waited 30 years, and it was so worth the wait :) I have to plan to meet her earlier on the next lifetime...

Happy birthday Mommie! I'll see you soon...

thanks crissie! :)
reminds of the first few years... so heartfelt and so true. I think we're way past the honeymoon stage now but I know the love hasn't diminished in any way lesser than it was the first few months. I believe otherwise. For more Teh Nette and Car! (by the way, seriously love the name..."KARIDAD") Miss you guys!

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!
