I met him when I was only 19 years old. I am now 30. It has been 11 years since we first met. The story of our first meet up is kinda weird.
I met him through an online forum where he said that he was going to SG for a vacation. He then asked if anyone wanted something from SG. I jokingly said that I wanted a stuff toy from SG. He said he was going to get me one.
I proceeded to forget about it and took it as just another empty promise made by an anonymous person online. Much to my surprise, a month or so after, he messages me and asks me how he can give me the stuff toy and some SG magnets he got me. To say that I was surprised would be an understatement.
He went to my place and I met him downstairs (I lived in a condo.) I was just wearing a tank top and shorts and he came over, handed me my stuffed doll and magnets then left. We met again a few times after and for a time, he fancied me but it fizzled because we were meant to be just friends.
However, there was one date that we had that was pretty memorable. He was the first person to take me to Starbucks The Fort when it was very new and he was also the first person to take me to Tagaytay Starbucks and watch the Tagaytay sunrise. This all happened in one night. It was pretty memorable because we just really hanged out, chilled, and talked.
These days, he lives in SG and we have made it a point to see each other everytime he visits. Today, we saw each other and tonight, he goes back to SG. He just went here for a week and I'm happy that I was able to make time to see him. He may not be my closest friend but I know he is a friend.
So to you my dear friend, take care of yourself and take care of your heart. I may have put a teeny tiny dent on it when I was younger but know that I will happily smash the face of the girl who will put a big dent on it. You deserve someone to make you happy and I deserve to wear a really nice dress on your wedding to that girl.
Till then ... I shall be your partner in crime in watching cheesy Tagalog movies.
