Spring Bling

23 09 2006





I forgot to mention that this month signals the start of spring, and since most of what I know about spring weather was influenced by advertising, I didn’t expect rain and maximum sustained winds of the “blow-me-over-the-pavement” level. But Melbourne is famous by having four seasons in one day and we do get occassional beautiful days when the sun would be out the rest of the day.

Oh and as a birthday gift to myself, I’m watching Pearl Jam at the Rod Laver Arena this November. Never thought I’d be able to watch them live in this lifetime. Astig. I grew up listening to them, at first by force because I’d wake up to their music blasting through the entire house because of my brother, but after a while I grew to love them.

Mel and I are off to Sydney next Saturday =)

St Kilda Pier

Okay, so for a while there I totally forgot about the purpose of this blog, and that is to keep anyone who would care to read some updates on what’s happening to me here. Sorry about that.

The past few weeks I’ve been busy attending weekly hiphop classes offered by this institution; getting serious (or struggling to get serious hehehe) with photography and taking care of Bogart and finding every good photo opportunity there is in this place. Aside from working hard and playing harder during Pinoy party during weekends wehehehe.

Last Sunday we went to the Shrine of Remembrance and St. Kilda Beach. Those are two places off my list of places to visit to complete my Melbourne experience.

This adventure has, so far, been a huge paradigm shift for me, and it still is. I’m still fumbling with a lot of the new experiences I go through each day (emotional or otherwise). I’m trying not to be too hard on myself because, as they say, when you’re doing things for the first time, there’s always a huge chance you’re going to screw up, but the important thing is to keep learning and embracing whatever comes your way. This entire thing is definitely keeping me on my toes, to say the least ;P
