Interpretation of Home

One of my favorite song is ‘Home’ by Michael Buble. Inspired by that song, this post is my (very) personal of Home.

Another summer day/ Has come and gone away/ In Paris and Rome/ But I wanna go home

This is home – Perth, Australia

May be surrounded by/ A million people I/ Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home/ Oh, I miss you, you know

Alongside Swan River

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you/ Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough/ My words were cold and flat/ And you deserve more than that

A big smile for Autumn Festival

Another aeroplane/ Another sunny place/ I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home/ Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Schoenstatt Shrine – A place of Grace, where I prayed to be home again soon

Let me go home/ I’m just too far from where you are/
I wanna come home…

When God put me to rest at green pasture

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life/ It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right/ And I know just why you could not
Come along with me/ ‘Cause this was not your dream/
But you always believed in me

One day, I will bring you to enjoy home together

Another winter day has come/ And gone away/ In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home/ Let me go home…

See the blue skies? It awaits us!

And I’m surrounded by/ A million people I/ Still feel all alone
Oh, let me go home/ Oh, I miss you, you know

A part of home

Let me go home/ I’ve had my run/ Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home/ Let me go home/ It will all be all right
I’ll be home tonight/ I’m coming back home …


St Thomas More Day – Dedication to Frank

Today (June 22) Catholic church remembering St Thomas More as the patron for lawyers. Why St Thomas More is so important for me? Because I used to stay at St Thomas More College, a college for UWA students, Perth, WA.

This writing is actually my dedication for former Frank, the Scottish cook at my college. Frank was so special for me, because he used to sing ‘Cecilia’ song out loud for me, while he had his cigarette at the back of the kitchen. Despite his hard temper, I found Frank so true to himself.

All Tommy Morons (the residents) know that we can’t mess things up with Frank. I remember, on one shift with Clarence Paul, I got scolded! Well, we’ve got scolded, because we talked during our shift and we let a girl took both menu at the same time. He called both of us from the kitchen and threat Clarence rightaway of losing his shift at the kitchen! While I got an excuse, because by then I was a new kitchen hand.

There’s a rule in Tommy More that we can’t take both main menus at the same time. We allow to take only one dish at first, and then we have to wait for 30 minutes after dinner time started if we want to try the second main dish. This way, all residents will be able to enjoy the dishes fairly.

My first day of working was started with a quick lesson with Steve, head of the kitchen. He’s also a nice guy. We used to have 2 cooks: Steve and Frank. But then, I always worked with Frank, for most of the time.

Few years ago, Gavin Nickellete, one of the ex residents told me about Frank, that he passed away. I forgot the exact date, but I remembered crying over him when I heard the news. Even though I only spend a year at the college, Frank was definitely someone that I won’t forget.

Rest in peace, Frank! All Morons will miss ya!

Writing is my way to share it to you.
