5 to 6 years from now I’d probably be bothered by frilly laces and white cream buttons. Which bottom gown would look best and which pearl earring would suit the dress perfectly. I guess the only thing I’m sure about my future aisle-walking happiness… is my best friend.
No lie, college has been the best thing that’s happened to me, but the person who’s always been there during hell years in high school was my best friend, Ingrid. And even though I have a lot of “bests” because I make sure I get friends who I can depend on and trust for a long time, she’s always been the perfect half of me and the perfect sister I wish I had (even though being the spoiled only daughter is a good life, I would gladly share that life with her).
Not going lesbo or bi, but one thing’s for sure, she, along with my family and other friends, is the only thing I’m really sure and clear about. And even though I haven’t always been there for her because of college, she’s still always there for me, and it means a lot to me. It actually means the whole world to me.
At one point, I forgot to appreciate what we had because life was going really well for me in Manila… But no matter what, whenever I come home, things would always still be the same between us. And I feel bad because I forget what got me here in the first place and I know that without my best friend, I would not be who I am today.
She’s always been there through heartbreaks and tears and even though almost the entire population hated me back in high school, she has always been there for me, comforting me and telling me that my existence meant something and that I was important and that I would do great things and be a great woman someday.
So to my best friend, who I owe so much of my successes to, I love you and thank you for the best birthday letter ever. I wouldn’t have it any other way and I’m so happy I have you in my life.
And I’m happy to say that, I’ll see you beside me, giving me a smile and a nod that you’re happy for me, for marrying someone fit for me. And you’ll be with me all the way because you deserve that honor and you deserve that special place in my life.
Ngl, I fell in love with this song soon as I heard it. And it’s true, the world is starting to forget about slow love songs… And I’m one of the people who are still addicted to it so when I found a new one… It got me going… So now all I can think of and wish and hope for is that someday I can slowdance to this song.

I wish my prom went like this or something…
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again-
the most wonderful place to be.
Here’s to one of the things I miss the most. MILK TEA
