Random Thingeys...

I have been in some sort of hiatus for the past few months from blogging. This is something new since I was the sort of person who did daily or weekly updates! This was my way of sharing my thoughts and stories with my friends.

Just to share something to the universe, here are just some random thoughs and events from the past few months.
Mommie's baking exploits - Car has been experimenting on new recipes and I am the very willing guinea pig. Lately, she is into baking! Scones (well, she did a great job for someone who hasn't tasted scones before), red velvet cake, tuffet pudding, brownies, and carrot cake with Rosie.

We don't have an oven here (yes, that is Car's frustration) but dahon has been a gracious host and always lends us her kitchen for some sumptuous cooking and baking.

My latest favorite is Mommie's tortilla and empanada! She also makes a very yummy hummus mix!
UFC! I love the UFC - Reality Show! I discovered it late when I tried to buy some DVDs that my dad will enjoy. It turned out that I loved the show more than him! He didn't like watching newbies.
I love the struggles, the training, and all of those big boys living in one roof. If I were to choose between Tyra's house of models and the house of UFC fighters, I will choose the latter.

First, they look more neat. They are genuine, no two-face bickerings. And they are very funny! Imagine a 6 foot 9 guy screaming like a girl on the sight of a cockroach! hahaha.. that was hilarious! And - they use the kitchen!
My only frustration is that I don't get to read as much as I like. I haven't found a good author that will cater to my ADD in literature. I tried re-reading Harukami's novels during the long vacation and I am still looking for the author with the same style.

I can relate to Harukami, when I read his characters, they resemble me in more ways than one. The only books I can finish nowadays are non-fiction books. nyayay!
I basically stopped watching movies in movie houses. I always fall asleep and it's a waste of money! Good thing that we discovered our neighborhood pirata. We just watch DVD instead of going to the mall.

I now can sit through a movie or a DVD series. Things I cannot do before. Well, I think I am getting old :).

Oohh.. I smell some cooking from the kitche and I think we're going to eat na! To everyone reading this just continue to Love, Laugh and Live! :)

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!
