I’m back and voting for Fruityoaty for the Filipino Blog of the Week!

Its good to be back. Now I can be all over the internet again.

For over two weeks I was assigned on site assisting the project manager in Telstra’s Jersey project. This is the upgrade of 9,000 base stations Australia wide, for the Telstra 3G mobile network.

The site is in Broadmeadows and I’m from Dingley Village. To those not in the know, Broadmeadows is in the north of Melbourne while Dingley is in the southeast. Given that, it would take at least a good hour’s drive each way without traffic and between 1.5- 2hrs with moderate traffic. Sobrang nakakapagod pag inaraw-araw ang pagpaparoo’t parito.

I didn’t have internet access on the site so I missed out on the happenings in the blog world. I’m too exhausted to even bother sitting in front of a computer when I get home.

I just learned two days ago that Massa P’s Fruityoaty and GJ and Raquel’s Palabok are both nominated in the 2007 Philippine Blog Awards in the Personal category. I lurk in their blogs regularly. While I haven’t met Massa P (as she is in Canada), GJ and Raquel are friends here in Melbourne. (Hey Massa, how about taking holidays here in Oz, would gladly take you around. (“_”).

Also, The Composed Gentleman added fruityoaty in the weekly poll for The Filipino Blog of the Week. As of this writing, fruity is in the second spot trailing by over 30 votes to gwapasila. I have yet to visit gwapasila but will do soon once I’m done with all other blogs I follow.

In another story, while I am happily blogging my day at work, I can hear noises of the race cars at the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix. The venue, Albert Park is not too far from the office. Today is Day 2, qualifying session for the Australian Celebrities Challenge will be on and F1 drivers will have practice sessions.

  2. […] to Alma for plugging my blog in this post, voting for my blog for Filipino Blog of the Week and for offering to feed me Tim Tams (mmm!) and show me around the […]
