second wind

September 22, 2008

It took longer than expected -but it finally came.  Maybe it was the chat with my wife.  Maybe it was my friends’ visit. Maybe it was my Mum’s encouragement.  Or maybe it was a confluence of all or some of these factors.

Australian enough

September 15, 2008

i plan on taking the citizenship test soon – once the weather becomes a bit warmer. i am Filipino so i integrate and adapt; understand and used to speak English. i adore lamb and roo but don’t like Vegemite. i know Sir Donald Bradman but don’t care much for cricket (that said i am not a big fan of baseball either).  i prefer coffee to a cuppa.

i love Australia but have not and probably will not lose my Filipino-ness.
