Life as it is... and my love affair with FOOD!

As I try to boot my old laptop just to check if it's stil working I realized that it has been days since I surf the internet! Yes, I use my laptop at the office for work but due to connectivity problems, I am not really connected to the world wide web due to the corporate need to isolate us from everything out there.

What was I doing these past few days? Hmmmm... I guess, i would say that I have been living... trying to get the best out of every day that come my way. One thing that brings me such joy these past few days is that I think I have fallen in love again with FOOD!

Don't get me wrong, I am not a skinny, and anorexic being but the past few years, eating big meals bring me anxiety. Yes, being a woman, I equate food with fat, fat and fat. I am a BIG girl so as much as I can I don't really prepare food for myself.

I think that is one of my problems these past years. I am not eating proper food. I graze through junk food, chocolate and whatever processed food I can find. That was no good.

This year, my foodie self came into life again :) That's why it was with great joy that we go to the sunday markets regularly now. I love to sample a wide variety of food (of course, I always go to the Suman and kesong puti section, yum!). I am no longer afraid of fat or cholesterol. Ces la vie! Apart from coming out, it's a liberating experience to eat without fear :)

Well, I have to end it here, I hear Mommie preparing for our next foodie adventure... To everyone, don't be afraid - EAT , Love and be merry!

Bon appetit!

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!
