I was having my cheeseburger meal with fries and a large Coke when I suddenly felt dizzy. Β I know deep inside what it is. Β I decided to buy apples. Β I would have bought veggies but I could not think of any veggie dish to make. Β Apples would suffice for now and lessen the sweets.

I should love my body now.


I saw these on sale. My relatives added four πŸ™‚



These are already available in the Philippines but I don’t think it would cost as low as Php 43 per box. If only I could send these to my family.

I rode the bus going to Moonee Ponds from Hillside. I discovered new routes. I have seen new parts of Melbourne.

I went home early because I felt tired. When I reached Hillside, the wind was blowing hard, the chill is penetrating my body.

I am looking forward to what God has planned for me. I know He’s laying down the foundation.

Thank You Lord. πŸ™‚


I am like the Jewish people in the desert. Always complaining. I’ve seen the miracles that God has done in my life but still in the middle of the desert, it is scary, uncertain. It is grace that the people around me are still patient. It’s only a matter of time. I’ve lost my faith in people a long time ago. My faith in God I’ve been trying to find. Without God, I’m as good as dead.

Why would You bring me here then abandon me in the end?
Don’t test me Lord
You know how weak I am
Without You how can I live?
I want to serve You
How can I?
Show me how
Lord, remember me, your coward, selfish servant
Strengthen me
Give me the grace to love You still
To love You more
Despite the disappointments
I don’t want to be a burden anymore
Grant me favor Lord God
Be in my life
Restore me
Don’t hide Your face from me
Be kind to me
Save me
I pray that You will remember me again

The Day

It is someone’s birthday. I never thought that I’d be here already, miles apart from them. I have other expectation.


The sky was clear yesterday as my friend and I, along with her sister walked the nearby park.

We saw people running around Tan Track, just enjoying their sundays. We were enjoying our sunday too. It is just that my feet were already painful.

We also went to Queen Victoria Market where there are lots of cheese, choco, and bread. I love that place. I love bread!

I tried “borek” the spicy lamb one. It was quite spicy but I love the hot bread. But the spices and lamb can do a lot on one’s breath. So be ready to pop in a mint candy after.


The famous American doughnut with jam. Good thing I am not into donuts because the line here was loooong… πŸ™‚


The only flower shop in this market. It’s colorful that is why I asked my friend to take this picture of me with the flowers. πŸ™‚


Melbourne City. So pretty and quite clean. But I think I love it more at night when the old buildings look even more old–ladden with wisdom.

You are going to love me Melbourne. πŸ™‚


Things are falling into place.Β  I have met key people in my life here already. It’s nice to see them again–to converse with them.

I feel grateful that they have spent time with me.

Total tourist today πŸ™‚

The grafitti street. I don’t know the name of this place but with all the vandalism (supposed to be a grafitti), some artwork is destroyed.

Intramuros? Australian Old Gaol.

State library. Felt like I was in National Treasures movie.

Eiffel Tower? Don’t really know this place but it’s interesting.


Looks pretty. I hope to be rich enough to afford a place here. πŸ™‚

But I could still change my mind. A family of my own on my mind πŸ™‚


Victoria Barracks


What a beautiful day πŸ™‚




Doing tricks. Maybe I should do this for now. πŸ™‚




I like this building, tank-like.


Beautiful Melbourne view.


People are busy. It wouldn’t hurt to be a little more sensitive to the needs of others but we should not really expect much from others.

I am ready for this place. People ask me how I feel. I don’t really know. I just want to do what I intend to do here–thrive.

So grant me favor God. Thank You Lord.

Coffee Mocha

I was so cold while walking the streets of Preston and I saw this coffee shop by Arabian owner. After much contemplation, I finally decided to order coffee. We have language barrier. My large is her lage…without “r”. I have yet to learn that. Anyway, Preston looks like an old town, considering it is quite near the city.


Most of the stores here are Vietnamese, Chinese and Indian and also Arabic. There are also some pharmacies here.

Anyway, off topic, I need to put on more red lipstick because I look pale from the cold. The lipstick I bought is supposed to last longer but I guess they mean only for a few hours.

I went with my relatives to my cousin’s dance competition and I saw ladies with nice abs. I want to have abs like those, too. I am inspired to go back to my lifestyle change. And it’s going to start tomorrow.


I am such a tourist. I never really planned on roaming the city just for the sake of roaming it. I’m on a budget here, remember. πŸ™‚ But I guess God wanted me to be a tourist for a while and enjoy the view.

I went inside this pharmacy and this lady asked me the customer service way. I thought she was Chinese or Malaysian or Australian because of her accent. I was surprised because she suddenly asked me, “Pilipino ka?”

It took me a while to regain from shock.

By God’s grace I have hope here.

Anyway, here are pictures of Flinders Station and the famous buildings here because of their architecture!






I don’t want to flood you with photos so thess would suffice by now.

Funny story. I am not really used to converse in English much more with someone who has an Australian accent, so there were these two volunteers explaining a cause. I went along with it just so I could converse with him to brush up on my english. Then I told him in the end that I am still looking for work. He had that disappointing look but it was okay.

Another is an old couple asked me if I could take their pictures. They were Asian. I guess I look trustworthy and approachable enough. Nice. πŸ™‚

The city is beautiful but I guess it is expensive to live there. I would rather stay in the suburbs.
