MOVE it.

A second of embarrassment today prevents a lifetime of regret later.

Thank you.

Some things to be thankful for:

And for people who once believed religion was enough, then learned to see things with open eyes.

RuPaul is baaaaack!

I will admit, RuPaul's Drag Race is a guilty pleasure for me.
Yay to Season Four!

Now I get why Smallville was so popular.

Superman, indeed.
Good job, Smallville.

The Secret Recipe to a Relationship

I never thought I would ever come to a point in my life where I can say, "Yes I can cook good food."  But ever since I got into this relationship with Rocky, I have found myself in a life where reaching for my dreams seems to be the norm. 

Rocky and I now cook more often than buy food outside or have it delivered.   While Rocky is good at coming up with delectable soups and very filling pastas, I am thankful he really enjoys my salads and other simpler dishes.  Most recently, Rocky has been really loving the Turbo Broiled Chicken that I can make.  The recipe was a family favourite which so many people have really appreciated and to be able to cook it now makes me feel very happy.

Since Rocky and I have been taking taking steps to eating healthier, the additions of cooking machines such as the Turbo Broiler and the Slow Cooker Crock Pot are a definite plus.  The tricky part is really finding not too difficult but healthy recipes to try.

Which brings me to the topic of relationships:  
If you find yourself in a relationship which stifles your growth as a person or forces you to sacrifice your dreams, then maybe it is time to reconsider how you treat yourself.    Maybe it is time to get out.

While it is not uncommon for sacrifices to be called for from either party in making a relationship work, all such sacrifices should always be a two-way street.  Both should realize the give-and-take nature of a relationship is a constant act of finding ways to keep things balanced.  While this doesn't meant counting and tracking every single thing and time you make certain compromises, it does mean being aware that you aren't the only one doing them.  Often, I've read  facebook status updates and comments from single people complaining about how love has always been unfair to them or how it was time "they took care of themselves  more."   I sometimes find myself wanting to reach out and tell them, "You know, that's precisely it.  You HAVE to take care of yourself more.  You have to always keep yourself happy.  Because if you don't, you won't have happiness that you will want to share with your partner."  The happiness that makes a relationship strong and nourishes it to grow is a happiness that comes from each partner and is shared with each other.  If only one person keeps "producing" the happiness and the other keeps "relishing it," then I'm afraid that's merely a relationship doomed to eventually fall apart or worse, live on with one of the two feeling cheated and trapped for the rest of his life.

Be happy.
And share that happiness with the person you love.

If you find someone who is doing the same then, then chances are you have found the person you are meant to  be with for the rest of your lives.

The Home for the Golden Gays is "a refuge for the elderly and vulnerable gays of Manila. A home for those, who have nowhere else to go, for those whose families have rejected them, and for those who simply want to be in the company of other elderly gays."
PG4M (Pinoy Guys4Men) is an online message board for Filipino and Philippine-based gay and bisexual men. This site aims to provide a venue for conversation and exchange of ideas among its members, providing a venue for friendship, a sense of community, and a sounding board for opinions and concerns of gay men regarding the current issues and trends facing not just the LGBT people, but the society in general.

The LGBTIQ Working Group of Akei considers the status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexual & questioning/queer (LGBTIQ) peoples as one of the last great civil issues of our time. In countries around the world, LGBTIQs face issues on multiple fronts--in justice systems, workplaces and even among their peers. Akei plans to concentrate on improving movement tactics, social networks and cultural capital in the LGBTIQ community through harnessing intellectual resources so as to create systemic changes in how LGBTIQ people are treated in society.

Score one for courage

Proud of you, David Testo.

I wonder when the Philippines will have closeted celebrities that become brave enough to come out?

For now...

Alas, it seems someone has coughed up the cash to pay the reservation fee for the dream house Rocky and I were excited to get.  So it seems, either the world has an even better place waiting for us, or the current people are planing to hold on to the house and end up choosing to sell it again once Rocky and I are ready with the money.

Why am I talking such nonsense?  Because I don't believe it is nonsense.
Ever since I met Rocky, I've been constantly reminded by events in our relationship about how everything literally does happen for a reason.  Cancelled concerts, slight miscommunications, moments that test us, and even the loss of things, places, and people dear to us have all had their own reasons for happening.  For some, it can be an emotional reason that needed to go its course.  For others, a mental reason that needed to be played out.  And others, a physical tangible reason that is necessary for what came next to occur.

Everything happens for a reason.

And so, while it does feel saddening to learn that the house we both pretty much pegged our dream house is now likely to end up owned by someone else, I am not giving up.  I do believe we will find the house that we are intended to call our home.  And I still am very thankful for the many friends who offered their support, if not offered new job opportunities for me to try to increase my cash flow for the eventual purchase of our home.

The search continues.
The gathering of work continues as well.

And soon.
Rocky and I will find the place where we were meant to live the rest of our lives.
A place we can grow old together.
A place where we can say, "Yes, this is where we belong."

Thank you for your continued support, everyone.

 To my Rocky, who has taught me to believe that a person like myself does deserve to be this happy on a daily basis.  Happy Wheelie Day!  I love you so much!

My partner wants to get arrested now.
