I got pissed with the last theme I used. It went wacko, like I said. So, here. I found a new look that I’m going to try out. Hmmm… I hope things work out between this theme and I. Otherwise, I’ll be forced to transfer this blog to a different host. I really don’t want to do that.

Time, Lightning and a Journey 29 January 2006

“You may even end up enjoying where you end up more than you’d have enjoyed where you were going — especially if you’re in the right company.”

Hmmm.. It doesn’t really matter where you are and what you’re doing, huh? All that matters is the fact that you’re with the only one you’re meant to be with. Late or otherwise, as long as he spends the rest of his life holding my hand and talking to me.

“Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is, there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love – well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived. Well, it worries me. I want you to get swept away. I want you to levitate. I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish. Be deliriously happy. Or at least leave yourself open to be. Stay open. Who knows? Lightning could strike.” Bill Parish [Anthony Hopkins] Meet Joe Black

Yes, lightning can strike indeed. I’m waiting.

This certainly brightens up my day. =)

Something’s seriously wrong here. 28 January 2006

I’m not sure whether if it’s just my PC or the timing, but my WP blog has gone completely wacko. This should be fine the next time I check it, otherwise, I’ll be very, very — uh, upset? yea! I’ll be horribly upset! Hmpft! =(

Baghdatis Faces Federer at the 2006 Aussie Open 28 January 2006

Posted by Sasha in Tennis, The Rambler.

What will the outcome be, I wonder?

They said that Marcos Baghdatis’ rise in the Aussie Open is considered the most romantic tennis story so far in the history of the tournament. It’s been interesting to hear all the things he had said during every interview made after each victory. He’s so warm and candid about his journey. He certainly won the heart of a lot of Aussie fans because of how he draws the crowd in and share his game with him.

A quick 411 on Baghdatis. He isn’t a known or seeded player. He’s a greek from Cyprus. It’s funny how the media always notes that he has a beautiful French girlfriend, who also happens to be a model and the daughter of this coach. I guess they’re quite envious. Hahaha.

It was also said that Federer is sure to win the match tomorrow since it’s quite common for a seeded player to thrash a newcomer during the finals. Will it run true? We’ll see if Bagjdatis’ skills as a tennis player will shine through. I reckon every tennis afficionado will certainly look forward to tomorrow’s match. I’ll be watching it for sure.

Mauresmo beat Henin-Hardenne in the women’s final today. The latter was forced to retire due to a stomach flu, I think. That’s the former’s second win due to her opponent retiring from the match, the first one was against Clijsters during the semis. It doesn’t really say much about her abilities as a tennis player. However, a win’s a win. It’s her first grand slam title.

It feels like home 25 January 2006

It’s my 4th day in Adelaide today and I’m spending it with Cam. It’s feels so familiar and no, I don’t feel like a tourist anymore. I don’t feel like a local either but everything is starting to feel familiar, it’s weird but nice. Although it’s just my second time to visit Australia.

I’ve been asked about my feelings regarding being back here and that’s what it feels like, like I just came home. My real home is in Manila but looking back, it seems like I just took a vacation when went back there last December, instead of the other way around.

I’m back to blogging, too. It’s different this time because it certainly feels like I’m taking it a whole lot seriously now. I’m loving it, though. I’m slowly immersing myself into this world. I used to do it just for kicks at Mulitply but I ventured into templates and site specific blogging like my dating and relationship blog, which is becoming a little bit popular, I should say and my lifestyle blog that’s my first ever blog at blogger, which also happens to be at a stand still right now, sadly. And how can I forget my fashion blog? It’s the most serious of the lot and it has it’s own domain, hosted by my sister.

It’s been fun and enlightening so far. I can’t believe it took me this long to figure out how fun and rewarding blogging can be. I’m looking forward to more projects to do and people to meet. =)

It can be sweeter the second time around. Hahaha.

New look? 24 January 2006

Posted by Sasha in Blogs & Blogging, The Neo-Blogger.

I wonder how this new look will affect me in a few days. Will I keep it? I like it in some ways. It’s nice and bright.

How I wish WP offers the flexibility of Blogger. Oh, well. You can’t have everything.

Australian Open 2006 24 January 2006

I’ve been watching the Australian Open the past few days and I have to admit it’s getting to be pretty addictive. I’m torn between blogging and watching it. I like watching the women’s tennis more than the men. I found it more exciting so far or perhaps I’m just missing most of the men’s tennis anyway that’s why I haven’t seen a really good game. But I hear Nalbandian is doing good.

I caught the 1st set of the women’s quarter final earlier, Sharapova vs. Petrova. It was a good game between the two top Russian players, Sharapova won. I also saw the game where Hingis won over Aussie’s Stosur yesterday. Hardenne beat Davenport a while ago. So, it’ll be Justine Henin-Hardenne vs. Maria Sharapova in the semis while Martina Hingis has yet to face the current 2nd Seed, Kim Clijsters, to determine who advances to the semis.

Yes, I can be a sports nut if I set my mind to it. Hahaha.

Heading Down Under 20 January 2006

Posted by Sasha in Gallivanting Episodes, The Traveller.

Tomorrow perhaps? It’s funny cuz I currently have multiple bookings but I’m still on the waiting list. Argh. Utter frustration! I still don’t know when I’m heading down under — uh, Australia, I mean. Uncertainties of flight bookings and troubles of packing. Hey, I am a girl after all! Hahaha. Hmmm. What to pack, what to pack. How many pair of shoes can I fit in my luggage? Teeheehee.

Airports. Airplanes. Long travel hours. Can’t wait.

Lurking, are you? 18 January 2006

I came across my sister‘s invitation to De-Lurk over at her Weblogs site at About.Com. I like the idea. Of course, I left her a comment just to let her know that I do check her site, too. Teehee.

If you’re wondering what Lurking means, you can check the Weblogs Glossary.

Now, I’d like to extend the same invitation to all the readers here to drop me a note and say hi! I’d love to hear from you! =)
