“When it hurts to look back, and you’re scared to look ahead,
I still remember the first day we met. We were in Grade 2 and I was a transferee. She was the first one who approached me and asked, “Bata, bata, anong pangalan mo?” We were both amazed because we have the same family name. We learned that we’re distant relatives. From then on, we were together everyday until 4th year high school. We’re both choir members in our parish and we’re both teaching Catechism.
We parted ways when we were in College because she studied in Manila while I remained in the province but we were together every summer. We had so many happy and memorable moments, swimming, parties, fiestas, “lupakan”, and so forth. I won’t be finished typing until December if I post more of our stories, lol!
To make the story short, she is now based in Abu Dhabi with her family. We make sure that we meet and go out every time they are coming home. The picture below was taken last January with our other friend from high school, Mylene.
