I remember making a promise to my good friend Jan in university that I’m gonna attend his wedding when that day comes. Then two years ago, he told me that he was getting married to our classmate and friend Jean and as a man of my word, I kept my promise. In fact, this was the main reason why I went to the Philippines this time. Thanks to Jan and Jean for giving me a reason to come home! Honestly, I wasn’t aware that they had a thing until they told me they were tying the knot. Can you believe that? LOL!
It was fun to relive university days with my classmates during the reception and catch up with them after three years of not seeing each other. I’m so proud of them for what they’ve achieved 8 years after graduating. Some of them are resident writers for major book publishers in the Philippines. Some are full-time instructors in our university and are now colleagues with our former professors. Some are taking further studies in our own chosen fields of endeavor. Listening to their stories inspired me to do so much more with my capabilities and push myself to make more use of my talents.
Jean looked very pretty in her wedding dress which was donated by our former Filipino professor, Professor Gualvez, who happened to be one of the principal sponsors of the wedding. Seeing Ma’am Gualvez brought tears to my eyes because she’s one of my life mentors. Most of the life hacks I share to you guys here in Jenne Chrisville came from her and I think I’m not the person I am right now if I didn’t have the chance to meet her in this lifetime. I will be forever in her debt for everything she taught me.
The next day was another blogger day. I went to EDSA Shangri-La Mall and SM Megamall to spend some quality time with Crissey (again!), Tricia and Farrah, who I met for the first time although we’ve been following each other in social media. Funny story: Farrah helped me book my first UBER ride from Rockwell to Sucat, Paranaque because she was feeling for me for having so much stuff with. Thank you, Farrah!
