Italian Immigration

It has been sometime now that I've been collecting menu or italian recipe magazines because I've been trying to straighten out our eating habits. But I rarely have time to cook any of the recipes, 24 hours never seem to be enough to do all the chores a working mother needs to do for her family and beyond. All days tire me, all the new chores as a mother completely changed my lifestyle from a liberal person free to do whatever and whenever. It seems to be a lifestyle-shock for me.When I was single, I used to work and slEEp (eat some, also). Now, every minute is counted (and not even enough, if let's say I feel the need to rest for hours, I simply can't allow that as the rest of the domestic chores are staring at me waiting to be done). GOD, I pray that YOU strenghten me more, physically and spiritually and mentally.I thank my GOD Who is always beside me to uphold me otherwiseI would have collapsed under the pressures.  Thankfully, my very kind sister-inlaw 'borrowed' again my daughter for 3 days so to give me some breather. I also am due to have my italian citizenship, tomorrow I have to retrieve the official document from the immigration office. I don't know if there will be an oathtaking although 1 public official told me and another also told me that swearing will accompany this retrieval. Should I dress like in a ball? Should I be alone? Should I record on film this momentous occasion?

The italian government is not so systematic and that's also true even with beaurocracy. Most important offices do not function regularly, like the immigration office is open only during tuesdays and thursdays from 9 til 12 noon, and also most government offices  serve the public during the morning, or only for a limited time or a limited number of days.Outrageous.

We attended the celebration of Philippine Independence Day last June 12, at Manila Square here in Rome, and we enjoyed so much not only all the typical Filipino delicacies (mostly for free, just like in a town 'Fiesta'), but also the company of all the filipinos in that highly festive occasion where the TFC channel also held a show hosted by Pokwang and Randy Santiago.But we weren't able to watch anymore as we left before their arrival, late in the afternoon.We didn't want to expose our little daughter to too much sun. But it was the first time we attended the Philippine Independence Day here in Rome. It was also funny to see some foreigners, muslim-looking and also Italians appreciating our festivities and our food. There were many different booths set-up to promote varied services like Filipino real estate companies,Filipino Banking institutions, legal assistance, food stands etc. There was also the 'halo-halo' under the heat of the sun--:The most surprisin…

Cross At The Center of The Universe

This is the actual image at the very center of our universe,found at the core of the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) Not long ago, a certain very young Pastor Louise who himself also, is a NASA/space enthusiast- preached in Spain about the incomprehensible enormity of our universe. It was a very eloquent message,very well explained and accompanied by his own actual visual collections from NASA. He articulately (however hard he tried to..) showed the vastness of GOD (more than that, the vastness of GOD's Love for us) . ...consider, at 60,000 or 70,000 ft. above the sealevel, all structures on earth's surface would hardly be visible through the naked eye, lowfast lamborghinis or ferraris, jetplanes,villas and mansions, the most luxurious malls and most importantly-people would seem inexistent. If you travel farther,beyond our own solar system or even outside our Milky Way galaxy, the Earth would seem to be only a dot.And men, you or me would be insignificant(or seemingly inexistent) size…


We celebrated our sixth year wedding anniversary yesterday at Hard Rock Cafe' at the Rome tourist belt area.Of course Italy is known for its delightful and fat-free cuisine but due to budget constraints we opted not for a fine dining.But the entire day was blessed with cheers and simple fatty dishes by Hard Rock but nevertheless served with kindness and sweetness by the young and handsome waiter.That is also good enough to make up for what might still be lacking to call it a memorable wedding anniversary.We were with my girlfriend Lala with whom I was teasing Alessandro our waiter just for fun.We finished our dinner with yet another greasy dessert hot fudge brownies.After that,we proceeded with some photoshoot outside the restaurant.As the American embassy is just a stone's throw away from Hard Rock, I also had my photo taken with it in the background.Well there's one more reason to Praise My GOD today.
