Update - A Quickie

I know I haven't been updating, and that's because I've been away for a while, visiting my cousin. I still am away actually, but I'm at an internet cafe. I'll explain more when I get home home home to my sexy iMac. Plus I'll upload photos (Steph's request). Here's a quickie though-

-I'm in Iloilo. Actually, a little town called Barotac (45 mins away from Iloilo). Been here 3 weeks now.
-Met my cousin Nick's kid, who's my Godson. He's awesome, but violent sometimes (in a funny way).
-Went to an island called Boracay, for the 2nd time in 4 years. Wuz sweet. It's a party place that foreigners and Filipinos who live in the city like to visit. There's always people there, it's awesome. I actually a group of people from Toronto there which wuz nice.
-I surprise visited my grandaunt and she didn't recognize me until my cousin told her who I was. You have to know, she's pretty old... and still deafening (we knocked on her door for quite a while, and we could see her standing, watching TV, not hearing us.) She wuz crazy happy to see me. We have a scheduled lunch with her tomorrow.
-Nick's wife, Connie is so cool to talk to. She has a lot to say. She said she sees me as her little brother.
- I miss my iMac. And my brother and sister. And Mom. And Dad. Hi Dad.
-I'm charging my iPod named Nancy, cuz she died earlier today.
-I think I'm going back to Manila on Friday.

See ya later!

Back On Here

Well, I decided I should start posting again. There've been quite a few changes in my life since my last post. I actually started working on a post a few weeks ago, but it ended up just being a draft. If I remember right, it had something to do with lots of pictures.

Here's a list of things that happened so far:

- I helped the relatives I lived with in Edmonton move house.
- My transition into the new year wuzn't very pleasant. I spent it in a bathroom puking my guts out for an hour. I don't think anyone really knows about that.
- I met new people just by working in another department at Superstore.
- I got into a relationship with someone I met from work, but unfortunately that ended after about 3 weeks because I had to leave the country.
- During my last week in Canada, I must have downloaded over 100 movies because I knew how crap the internet in the Philippines is.
- I am now in the Philippines. I don't like it here. I don't feel like I belong here.
- I am now 22 years and 2 days old.
- I spend a lot of time with my sister Carla when she's not in school.
- I started calling Carla by different variations of her name - Carls, Carlsberg, Carlton, Carlita..
- Since I got here, I've had cravings for porky food.
- I worked out with Carls the other day at this place called Celebrity. It's a private sporty place we're members at. That wuz the first time I worked out in 3 years.
- Usually my uncle drives our car, but when we reach the neighborhood coming home, he lets me drive. It's quite a pleasure.

And that's pretty much it. I miss the snow, the nice weather, the people, the freedom.. back "home" I guess I could call it, considering I pretty much established what was a good life there for myself.

Anyway, that's it for now. I have a feeling this blog's gonna start getting more personal from now on, considering how ponderous I've been since I got here. We'll see.

Peace, world.

P.S. I just watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It was really good.
