My Best Friend's Wedding

Speaking of weddings .....

Les, called last night and I missed the call, which can be blamed on my ever-early sleeping habit. Not that 11:30 pm is early … but then again I was in bed way before then =) Anyway, when I woke up this morning, I saw her missed call and a text she sent saying “she needed to talk to me … asap”. I turned to Jojo and said, “I think Jogs proposed already”. In that instant, my phone began to ring, I ran to answer it, and it was Les confirming the news I had happily suspected. YES, it’s true, my best friend is getting married!

I am so thrilled for them. I was literally screaming on the phone. This prompted Jojo to get out of bed and ask me “what’s wrong?”, I had to tell him that Jogs had proposed and Les had said yes! Finally! This is a wedding that’s been years and years in the making. Believe it or not, these two good friends of mine have been dating on and off for the last 17 years! Seriously. They are truly a match made in heaven (as everyone will undoubtably agree) but they certainly took their time in deciding when to walk down the aisle.

Les, I am so happy for you. I truly wish you all the best and I know that Jogo will do his bestest to make you happy (he better!!!). You’ve been my best friend ever since we were 5, more than that, you have been like a sister to me. We’ve seen each other through some pretty good and some not-so-good times. We’ve been there for each other at our best and at our worst. I owe you so much and words can not begin to describe how much I value your friendship. I am so happy for you and promise to be there for the big day. If there is anything I can do to help you prepare, please, please, please let me know.

Jogs, I am so happy for you too. There is a huge sigh of relief going on around the world and hundreds of people saying “it’s about time”. You sure took your time and you sure made us all wait … but then again, the best things in life are worth waiting for. You and I have been friends for a long time too and we’ve had way too many happy memories to recall. I am so glad that there’s another happy memory coming up to add to all that. Congratulations and may you and Les enjoy the next 10 months of planning for this wedding and the many years of happiness you will surely have afterwards.

January 15, 2011. Good luck and best wishes to you both! Now can we plan your honeymoon food trip? Sama kami, ha? =)

All I can say is...sama din kami sa honeymoon food trip. Ü

Haha! I was going to write nga na sama kami nina Chico and Jacob sa food trip ha? I really think the honeymoon theme should be Man vs. Food! =) That is the only way we can persuade Jogs to get his US visa! =)

Hi Joyeee and Joce ... it really is exciting news. And am sure it will be just as thrilling when it's both your turns to walk down the aisle. No pressure ha! =)
