First it was Noemi a few years ago, today, Ting. I once had a dream that seemed so real that the sequence for our barkada for this step in life would be as follows: Noemi, Me, Ting, Binky and Zoia. Hmmmm….. since the sequence was broken with me, then it might not have been a vision but just a typical nightmare….for me that is. Today was a meaningful day for one of my high school barkada, Christine. It seems that all of us in the group were given specific tasks. Noemi, of course was in charge of the photography, care of one of Cagayan de Oro’s premier photographer, Rene of I was tasked to be the commentator and multimedia person, Zoia was the pseudo-maid of honor (hehehe…) and Binky, well, since she started her public speaking career just last week as a graduation commencement speaker for our alma mater, she was one of the emcees during the reception. (hahaha, I just had to say it Binks). Ahhhhh, weddings. I have finally gotten to the age wherein almost everybody I know are getting married or panicking about it. A few years from now, I’m sure I’ll be invited to a lot of baby showers, baptisms, etc. and then, I’d be invited to debuts and *gasp*, be a ninang for weddings. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! *honey, in panic mode, hyperventilating* Okay…enough, I’m tired. *yawn* I’m never wearing my stiletto shoes on events such as these, especially when the one getting married is a good friend coz darn it, I can barely feel my feet now. If only flip flops or Crocs can go well with semi-formal or formal dresses, I’d be wearing them always. Sniff… poor Feet. So, off to bed now. Congratulations Giovannie and Best wishes Ting! Honey, over and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz……………
