A Good Cup of Our Favorite Moments

01 March 2013

Last month I got a surprise visit from a very close of mine. Our small get together was spent with our friend Karen as well. It's been aw long time since Ate Rina's last visit to the Philippines. Last time I was with her was back in 2009. I was the only one available then to meet up with her and her husband. Since I stay at home 24/7, for every friend who comes home from another country, it has always been me whom they look up to when it comes to organizing reunions.

Well, ever since we were teenagers, when it comes to gatherings, I really like to participate and share my ideas on how we can spend  an occasion.
Hectic schedule here and there, but another friend was able to make it. Karen. As always...
It's the 3 of us again! 
The picture above was taken in 2008.

We started our beautiful afternoon with some catching- up. When Ate Rina saw my younger sisters, she got overwhelmed with how they've  grown. She even thought that my youngest sister Les is still in high school. But actually, my youngest sister is already graduating from college soon. Which changed our topic on how we were during the times when we were looking for a good school for college. VeritasPrep is very famous when it comes to preparation for college, especially for elite schools.
This year, most of my friends are pretty busy, mostly because of work. Some of us have babies to attend to and other events in our calendars. The least that I was able to come up  with was a small afternoon gathering at our place. My parents' house has always been the ideal meeting place for us even as kids. My parents has become my friends' guardians too. We had dinner, talked about things from "then" and "now". The highlight of our evening was about ghost stories from our old houses. It sure is nice to see my friends again. Whether if  someone's back to visit or whoever are here in the Philippines, a relaxing time spent with them is greatly considered as the cream on top of a good cup of our favorite moments.
