Faraway Friday: Flying Back Home

Note: Video at the end of this post.

A year ago, you would likely see me enjoying the company of my grade school friends Christian and Kim. In fact, the primary reason why I have Blogs>Diary Entry>FRIENDS under my menu is because they are constantly with me, whether it’s a fancy dinner or even our favorite isaw and the likes. But as they say, nothing is permanent in this world and Christian went to the states for good. (Click the comment section to read my long ass message lol)

A few days after that, I remember getting really sad while on my way home because I thought about eating out and inviting him and Kim; he was already so far away.

The last time I saw Jeng, we bumped into each other at the mall and it was literally just a -hi-hug-bye kind of scene. But the last time we got to round up our previous life events was when we had our barkada Christmas party.

I had to travel from Valenzuela to Taguig just for my friends who are currently renting in Taguig and Makati, respectively; from the north of Manila to more than halfway of the metropolis. (Yes guys, Valenzuela is not a province even if it is just beside Bulacan.)
