Tomodachi. My travel buddies in Melbourne.

.i waited and waited...

Fall 2010 – Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden.

And you have finally arrived!!!!! :)
I missed you, Autumn. Where have you been all these while? And most importantly, how are you???
Summer had been pretty nasty to me.. :( And I've been thinking of you all these time...

I actually thought you weren't coming to visit this year, because we are already approaching the winter months.. But here you are!!! You came!!!!!!!! :D

Could you stay a little longer? How about negotiating with Winter for a bit and see how things go?

Please stay, because you are, and will always be, my favorite season of the year.

I had to go to a friend's friend place for one of my final semester projects when I'd come across this puppy named August. It was hyper for a bit when everyone came into the house and calmed down after a couple of minutes.

As I was setting up the camera and getting ready to start the interview for my documentary, little August came towards me, with one of those rubber bones in his mouth. It wanted to play fetch so I decided to play along while attempting to set up the camera.

Anyways, this experience kinda made me want a pet dog too.. But no, I'm still a cat person. :) And everyone knows that one of the conditions in my contract is that I am not to have pets in this apartment at all times.

If only I was a pet dog who could play fetch all day and not give anything a damn... But life aint that good.


You know.. Great things never last... I have fallen yet again, after enjoying myself for the past week.
I'm still in the midst of waiting for the result of my PR application and it has been over a year since I submitted everything to the immigration department.

I know I shouldn't be complaining if I really want my application to be successful and to be able to stay here.. But I really want to have the option of being able to go back and visit SF and my family at least twice a year, without being questioned by immigration officers, for a quarter of the year or something... All my visiting plans have been ruined and I need to come up with plan B sometime soon... Sigh.

I guess I'm stuck here for the summer break.. It may not necessarily be a bad thing, but I was planning to spend the entire summer back home with loved ones and attempt to get an internship overseas.

Oh well, let's hope I'm able to get a 1 month bridging visa to go back for Lunar New Year 2011.

autumn has arrived!

Actually, I'm not sure if autumn has arrived... Wait, I think it has, because trees have started turning red/orange/yellow.. But um.. no.. why am I putting on stuff that I'd wear in July, where winter is usually at its peak?

Anyways, that's not important. What matters is that I'd get to go out for some more autumn photo walks before all the leaves disappear.. And.....


How long has it been since I last mentioned him in this blog???

Anyways, I'm going to see him again in less than a month!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!
I'm so excited that I think I'm going to be sick! :x

Okay, back to assignments! Did I already mention that I can't wait to see SF face to face??? =)

.dear mom,

greetings from 3000+ miles away.

I know that we don't get along as well as we should... And I actually feel bad about being much closer to dad than to you.. But no matter how harsh your words are to me when we argue, etc., you'll always be the best mom in the whole wide world - the one and only person (along with dad) who loves me unconditionally and is willing to sacrifice anything just to raise me up.

I hope I'll be able to go out for dinner with you and the family on Mother's Day soon, in the next couple of years, because the last time I did was six years ago, in 2004, when I was still a junior (11th grader) in high school.

We may not always agree with one another, and I probably will continue rebelling by doing the opposite of what you want me to do anyway.. But.. still.. I'm glad to have you as my mother. :)

Happy Mother's Day!
