Getting to Know … Me!

To get to know me is to know my heritage. Both my parents are Filipinos. My mother was a stay-at-home mum and my dad was an artist and an Advertising man by profession.

Please click images to enlarge.

I got my artistic gene from my dad. Back in the Philippines, immediately after graduating from Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising, I started to work.

Work, work, work that was all I seemed to do. And this was my view if I took the cab, or sometimes I took the jeepney or sometimes a pedicab to work. I worked in the CBD of Makati, Philippines.

1991 was the year when my husband and I packed our bags and said goodbye to our homeland of 30 years.

Now, Australia or Melbourne to be precise, has been our home for the past 32 years. No regrets… and life has been good to us. Not rich and famous, but just enough to have a happy fulfilling life with 2 wonderful kids.

So…this is Me today… I am a “wanderlust” and so is my hubby, Jack.

I love streetart, murals, sculptures …. you name it!

I love colour and colourful places

I also love nature especially taking close up shots. Only close ups because my camera is not good enough to do macros.

There are so many things that I like doing but these are the most special ones for me right now.! I hope you got to know ME a little bit more. I will be visiting your sites soon to know more about YOU!

    What a terrific response Teresa – I loved it and DO feel I know you better now! Good for you for pulling up stakes – such an adventurous step! We did the same (although not to a different country altho it feels like it!) and like you have never looked back. Kudos!!
