A good friend got married and it was the first wedding I have been to in 2012. I have a feeling it is not going to be my last.
See how everyone went nuts with the hats and fur?
I guess I’m always a big fan of last minute decisions because I knew about my friend’s birthday a year ago when he called me looking for places to shop for feather boas. What for — ? Until he revealed that his theme was all Sopranos, Mafioso and The Godfather that I understood that he might be needing fedoras, suits and vests in the future.
The future was January in 2012 and well, I wasn’t really prepared for another homecoming just when we were recently back in Cagayan during the holidays. Yep, it was depressing post-Sendong so I wasn’t really sure about reliving another depressing homecoming (not to mention a homeless family to go home to).
But Hector, oh, Hector – that moody giant of a boy is Tita Helen’s very dependable, trustworthy and hardworking businessman of a son who has been there for me since we were in high school. Kooks – if he gets into those episodes – CALL ME! Haha!
The rarity of having friends like that is truly a gem to keep. You know you are really, really good friends with that person when the next time you see each other after almost a decade long hiatus is during the most important day of his life –
Congratulations, Hector and Kookie! We love you!

Happy wedding also to Kristy who met her groom in Singapore, a fellow Cebuano. *hums Its A Small World*
One of my bestfriends since grade school, Xenia, also got married last year.
I get goosebumps everytime I remember her walking down that aisle but I felt like it was just last week that we both climbed over the gate at my parent’s house to sneak out and party while my sleeping parents we were just having a sleepover in my room.
Sigh. Too many weddings, so little time. Toodles.
