We have three types of friends in life: Friends for a reason, friends for a season, and friends for a lifetime.
I am so glad that I am surrounded with a lot of friends who are truly there for me through thick and thin, and who genuinely cares. Friends from this life’s journey that have made each of my days meaningful and I just thank God for abundantly blessing me with friends.
In my life’s journey I have met a lot of friends that turned out to have become friends for a lifetime. Among them are these nine (9) amazing ladies I have met way back High School. We became a group during third year, started a bond that remained 20 years after and counting! Though there were times that we lost track of each other’s lives during college and some earlier parts of our adult years, we know that the friendship is always there.
After years of not being together, we finally made time to gather. Thanks to Luremy for making sure the mini reunion will happen! Though we were not complete, it was still one heck of a reunion!
So this was US during third year high school (Phulleezze don’t laugh at those errr..gowns? dress? Whatever! I already laughed to hard, seriously hard!) But mind you, I bet we individually felt the prettiest with what we were wearing. I remember I adored my dress because it fits my body perfectly, my 23 inches waistline! haha!. Where did that waistline go? haha!
US now! minus Mago who didn’t make it to the mini reunion due to schedule constraint and Teofy, whom we can’t locate. Thanks to today’s technology, seeing each other and talking to each other despite miles being apart has become very possible. Thank you Vanessa, Venus, and Debbie for staying online despite the time difference just to catch a glimpse of us back home.
So let me describe each one of these ladies (let’s see if they’d agree — they have no choice anyway! ahhaahah!)..Let’s start from the top left:
Vanessa – she’s pretty and she’s tough. No holds barred when she talks. Petite but mind you, she can smack you in the face! ahahahahah! I remember those admirers she had way back, they would often hesitate because as pretty and as small as she is, she’ll give you a piece of her fierce ass if you mess with her. Proof? she’s a CAT officer and she almost or did she smack one of the cadet’s face on one of the formations we had! ahhaha! (I am guilty with it too, I slapped one cadet too with a rolled folder on one of the formations! ahhahaha! We are indeed friends!)
Venus – Our “choy2x”. She was very boyish. One of the boys as we call it but when she dances, she’s very much of a girl! haha! She would sport outfits that are way opposite from our usual girly get-up. I seriously think she has the tiniest waistline among the 10 of us. She’s crazy funny!
Debbie – beautiful Debbie! Personally I think she is the primmest and the most proper among us. It was so hard to get her to go with our usual lakwatsas as a group because seems like weekends is blocked for church or home activities for her. Very soft spoken and I never really recall her engage in any fight or even a very slight argument with anyone. She is just an angel!
Em-Em – me in white below. I think I’ll skip because I’ll be very bias if I’ll describe myself. i’ll leave that to my friends. hahahaha!
Ruvelyn -small but very talented! She is the dancer in the group. Well we all dance (I’d like to think so) but she is our queen in dancing — are there any violent reaction ladies? lol! She is talkative and gets so excited when she talks about something and we’ll all be ears listening to her. i just love it when she laughs, it’s just so contagious!
Luremy - the most serious in our group way back! She’s like the “ate” or eldest sister, well aside from the fact that she’s the tallest in the group, I think she was the most matured and most disciplined (almost stiff? – hahaha). She’d usually land the class President or VP because she seriously is that responsible..ate nga di ba? When she talks, she is very animated, it’s almost her story is always conveyed with her facial expressions and hand gestures. :D.
Louella – the morena and Filipina beauty in the group. Boys adore her! It’s so easy to make her laugh, like seriously she’d laugh at the corniest joke! hahaha! Her place was our favorite hangout because her mom is the most supportive (foods, foods, and more foods courtesy of her mom!). Don’t try to fool her with false or funny information because she’d believe so easily! ahhaha! She’s a little naive or she just take things a little too seriously. She loves to sing too and she can’t live without a hanky on hand!
Lowela – Tall, morena beauty, and straightforward, that’s her. The bootilicious Weng! she’s got some serious asset right there that we learn to appreciate more now that we have grown more mature. Kikay but not OA, if you know what I mean (in fact mas OA pa ako!) hahahah! She’s among those who loves to express her feelings through cards and letters she made herself. Cautious with her actions and handles responsibilities well.
I can tell a lot of stories about these ladies but it will take more than one blog post to do that. Will share instead some photos of our get together from couple of days ago. I must say, I was elated to see them! Louella’s house was filled with laughter, a little reminiscing, and more of catching up! This definitely won’t be the last. Now that we have started to reconnect, it’ll be a new chapter of our friendship.
A lot of chika over lunch! It took us hours to get our asses up from that table! hahahaha! We must’ve eaten so much! We enjoyed every moment of it anyway, so who cares!
The way we used to be. We love to take photos as a group. Too bad we are not complete this time as the others are overseas and Mago and Teofy were nowhere to be found.
We are not always together but we certainly know when one needs the others
