God purposely plan who would be our biological family here on Earth. Same with our acquaintances and friends, but it is our choice who will become our second family from them.
They say when you reach and surpasses the 7-years-itch, that relationship is strong and for keeps. Yes, Wonderpets celebrated 7th Friendversary last June 10,2017 at the same time Homecoming for Angie.
Trivia: I patterned my blogger name from our College barkada group name which is Wonderpets, a cartoon show in TV5 way back 2009 (not so sure if it still airs on TV). From Wonderpets to Wanderfeet, since my aim is to make blogs about some of my travel experience and ganaps in life. We are 10 in the group, Akiza in in Japan, Cheng is having her Masters, Mama diana is residing in Iloilo, Mel and Aiko are busy during this reunion. So tadaaa! 5 lang muna kami nag get together.
Cheers for 7 years! It is also Angie's homecoming. She works in Dubai for 2 years and had one month vacation here in Manila. Got to reminisced and shared our experiences as an adult and young professionals. As the host, yes, yours truly, I looked for a pad in Airbnb, for us to have a comfy and lovely place overnight. More chika, more fun kami mga momshies eh.
Like this building, our friendship is built with love and strong foundation. #buildingrelationship
Hindi kumpleto ang overnight pag walang swimming time. By the way, I chose to rent a pad in SMDC Grass Residence, Quezon City. This is located at the back of SM North Edsa Mall. Yes, sa likod mismo.
This pad belongs to Marga. (I don't know her personally but she's easy to deal with, just check her account in Airbnb www.airbnb.com ).Owner was very accomodating, nice, patient and considerate. This is one of the beds here in the pad, other one is in the sala, but mind you, we slept on the floor. Clingy kami e. Gusto namin tabi tabi. Hahaha.
Ayan nailatag na ung bed na isa. Haha.
Inclusions of our stay here:
1. Free wifi, pero dahil reunion po ito. Dapat daw "talk to each other, may wifi naman sa bahay" rule.
2. Free use of the utensils, gas stove and other appliances
3. Overnight stay with pool access, hindi nga lang free. 150 each every access. Since nagswim kami ng gabi at nung umaga, 300 each. Gusto magswim diba? Bayad tayo. hahaha.
My beautiful friends. Ito sila pag hindi busy mag FB.
We bought groceries in Sm Supermarket smmarkets.ph since it is just walking distance from the condo. Momshie goals po ito, ang makapagluto kami.
SM Grass Residence have 8 swimming pools. Access to pool is until 10pm.
We enjoyed the freezing water, inferness. Dive in!
Forgive me. Isang pool lang may kuha, dito lang kami nagstay. Ayaw namin may kasabay masyado, charots.
Kim left early in the morning,she went to Laguna with her family. We had an awesome stay in SM Grass Residence.
Before we left, umawra muna kami. But I had some realizations.
What i love about my friends, we are learning from each other.
Kim, once told me, how she've learned to freely show her love language to people. If it is your first time to read this blog of mine and this topic I am sharing, I want you to know that we have so many ways to show our love to others: it is through quality time, word of affirmation, giving/receiving gifts, physical touch and service. In my journey with Jesus, he already revealed mine, Quality time and service. So blessed and touched how we serve each other as friends and as a family. Cooking and serving food, made me reflect and remember Jesus.
Maybe this is so mababaw to others, but this verse came to mind, as Kim also shared this to me.
"Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
When Jesus came on Earth, he served wholeheartedly. Preached the word to all, fed the 5000s, washed the disciple's feet, opened the eyes of the blind, healed the sick and more to mention. This is love. Service is love.
And I always think of Jesus, on what he would do, if he will be in my situation. He will serve. I will never get tired organizing events for people, for my family and friends. ( kahit minsan sineseen lang ako at hindi nagrereply, charots ulit)
I thank God for the gift of Friendship. The gift of service.
Thanks for joining me with my Wonderpets friends in this post.
