Time really flies and it has flown quite fast. I came back not too long ago and we had our unforgettable reunion travel to Vigan, Ilocos Sur where we had a “visita iglesia” on a holy week. day. The poor communicator that I am, we lost contact again but when we met last year, we clicked right away- very much like old friends are. Yet she gave me a pleasant surprise- I was introduced to the love of her life which after twists and turns, has find her. Jay, it turned out is a lovely person who then- is off to Sydney in few days time.

When a call for audition for “Lion King” musicale for Sydney came, we submitted our resume with the hope of being called as member of the choir or as a dancer. We would be happy to do anything just to be in Sydney.
The audition team never called us up, so I called them up to ask why we were not given the chance to do the audition and I was told that we had no background in music. The positivist that I am retorted “ but we’ve got the talent”. Regardless, no call for auditions came and we went on with our lives. Jay can’t help but laugh with delight while Elena was quite embarrassed but join the fun recollection of events in our coffee session in the Shang Plaza.
It was also autumn when I first set foot in Sydney in a tour with friends. But the most memourable was when I took the bus for an eight hour trip alone, from Melbourne in Victoria to New South Wales where Sydney is. I wanted to be there for the fireworks display to meet the new year. Yes, Australia is a tourist friendly and in my case, an international student lovely place, where travelling alone is safe, nice and easy.
