What city speaks to you in volume?

New York City – The city that never sleeps is very close to my heart. Growing up from the tropical island of the Philippines, my Mom (a teacher) exposed us to the best babysitter ever, the TV. We learned to speak english by watching movies like Tom Hanks’ Big, Tom Sellecks’ 3 Men and a Baby and Batteries not Included. Of course my favorite was Eddie Murphy’s Welcome to America.

So as a young girl, I felt New York was the best city in USA.

That was a long time ago. But up to this point, my heart still flutters whenever I am in NYC.

My Bestfriend, Tess resides in Canada and whenever we have time we get together and New York always seems to be a good idea.

Serendipity is one of the most loved, Love Story by Filipinos. In case you dont know, Filipinos are very romantic people. Well, I do not generalize but majority are.

So when we went to NYC we love going to Serendipity 3:

This is my Soul Sister, Tess.

We’ve known each other since we were kids. We’ve been through a lot in life. We no longer think of each other as friends because we are more than that. We are family.

We fought a lot when we were kids. We dated the same guy but we were in a cocoon when we were in College. It’s a small city and with same circle of friends that will be inevitable. Well, it could’ve been avoided but she just loves to prove she’s better than me. Hahaha!

Nowadays we dont talk as much as we used to but we always pick up from where we left off. There is no longer that pressure of friendship which is common when you are younger. We are way past that.

We now acknowledge the fact that we have our own lives and though we are apart, we still think fondly of each other. Or not. Depending on the mood.

I cannot wait for the next Couples Getaway.

“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.”

Keep smiling y’all! Xx
