I remember the first day that we met as if it was yesterday…
July 17, 2011; I was expecting to watch Harry Potter with Aia and Franz but to my surprise I was in for a whole lot more. I met you guys that night. I wasn’t prepared to meeting new people, because I’ve just come out of a really bad friendship and I wasn’t up to putting my heart on the line again. Nevertheless it happened. And I have Aia and Franz to thank for that, they have brought you all to my life. And I have no regrets. Twas a magical month.
Honestly I didn’t know your name till we got to Bluewave. Don’t kill me, you know my head was preoccupied with other things. It was definitely a night to remember.
This was our first photo together:
Back: Bobbit and You Front: Nico, Me, Aia, Justin, Franz, Jaypee and Romina
A week later I found out we had a common friend. Your childhood friend, my college housemate.The world is such a small place. Who’d have thought that you were from the middle east as well? No wonder we get along.
The next time we saw each other was during the pre-Anniv photowalk at Binondo:
Justin, Me, Joshie, Chrizzy, Robs, You, Gino, Keith, Cheska, Dhel, Alexis, Franz and Jaypee
Remember your suicidal shots?
After that was the 4th Anniversary of Helios:
I don’t remember how or when we got close but it just happened. And I’m glad to have you in my life, you are indeed my favorite son. Despite the fact that you make me cry every time, I know you mean well.
Remember the first time you made me cry? We were on a bus bound for Cubao with soft porn playing and I missed my stop.
For some reason I always miss my stop when I’m on a bus to Cubao, I wonder why? Remember our impromptu Pampangga trip? Definitely one of the highlights of our friendship. Don’t deny it! We have a photo somewhere, I think it’s on Instagram. Remember Walang Basagan? And the many other drinking nights that followed? You brought me out of my metaphorical shell. Weird right? A marshmallow with a shell.
So many memories, so much love, I miss you dearly.
I’m sorry I can’t be with you on your special day, and I know a short blog can’t make up for the time I’ll be missing, but it will have to do for now, I’ll bring you cake when I get home okay?
I love you FC, with all my heart.
HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY!
