What supposed to be an intimate and cheery birthday dinner, turned out to be a bittersweet one. Dianne, one of my girl friends, would be migrating to US and was scheduled to leave the week after. Among our group of ten, I am pretty tight with her. The thought of losing that someone who I could make that surprise call or visit to when I really need someone to talk to, is just really heart breaking. Yes, I do need my friends but I'm grown-up enough to be able to understand that they have to live their lives. We're not high school anymore. We're... getting old and getting a life, haha.
Since the rest of my barkada's still around, we all made a vow to meet up as often as we can.
This entry is dedicated to Vanessa Martinez, Gicelle Canlas and Dianne Chan, three of my close friends whom I share about a decade of friendship now. Absence will indeed make the heart grow fonder. All our support to your overseas endeavors.
