Rey, one of my closest friends in High School came on vacation from London and we were able to reunite with High School batchmates last Friday. If I am not mistaken, we had seen each other last before I left for Bahrain in 1999, and never got the chance to meet in between until last week, 12 years later….. Just in time on the night we went out was the 2nd night of Mardigras in Olongapo.
That’s Rey, in black holding a bottle of beer, along with our High School batchmates.
Since we didn’t have much time to catch up, I invited him for lunch last Sunday reminisced the good old days when we were still 7 in the group who frequently enjoy each other’s company. We spoke about so many things including some debt advice and not so good experiences that we had crossed over the years.
After I have posted the Friday photos on Facebook, some requested for a part 2. Good thing I managed to get hold of some of them. Unfortunately, Rey didn’t make it to Olongapo as he was in Pampanga. But… Charlie, another friend of ours came all the way from Manila to spend some time with us.
It’s just too bad that we don’t get to meet at one time. Hopefully this coming Friday, there’d be at least 5 of us just like the old times. We may not be complete just like before, but at least we still get to cherish what we still have and that is our friendship.
