To the people who have seen my worst and still love me. When I don’t have to pretend to be anyone else but me. You guys have done more for me in terms of favors and life experience, that no other guy did.

S/O to Aiah, my housemate circa 2016 who doubled her role as a sister to me. We may differ in attitude and behavior towards something, sure we always end up agreeing to the common good and though we might not admit it but we hate to separate.

To Toni, who, 90% of the time, is beside me wherever and whenever. Thank you for just a chat away. Thank you for bringing me meds when I almost cannot get up coz I’m too stubborn not to drink one. HAHA

To Clau, my super adorable baby girl in Davao. You have something in you that brings out the positive vibe to every person. I was always a realist, but our friendship clicked instead of clashed. You seriously don’t wanna put my happy hormones into waste.

To Pocholo, thank you for being my hearing ear everyday, listening from my nonsense rumors to the most heartbreaking ones. Indeed you showed me that I have a friend to go through everything.

To ate Ria, my big sister in blogging. You know how much I grab all the chances to sneak in a mentoring sesh every time we meet. You can’t blame me (and the rest of your kids) because you never fail to push us to our limits, always bringing out the best in us while not compromising respect and ethics.

To ate KC, thank you for always reminding me the basic things I usually forget: eating on time, sleeping etc. Thank you for cooking the best veggie dishes when I crave for home cooked meals. Thank you for taking care of me and the rest of us.

To ate Sheen, you know how much I miss you already. I miss how you are always concerned of me and encourages me to do better always.

To Eda, yay! Can’t believe we’ve been friends since I was 17! (And you were still 15 hahaha) thank you for the unending friendship. Soon enough, we’ll be tita together, but first, enjoy your tequila shots!

To ate Shie, though we only see each other when you’re back in PH, you treat me like your real daughter/ sister. You don’t only let me eat all the pizza that makes me fat, you also give me the best advice I’ve been needing to hear. Miss you ate Shie!

To my Tukmol friends, Maddie, Ches, Shai and Lou, I can’t remember any dull moment with you. The only pain I feel when I’m with you is either stomach pain from laughing so hard or muscle pain from our fitness classes (wow)

To Junjun, I may look for every chance to bully you every second of my life, but know that I love you and that will never change. Thank you for helping me go back to blogging even when I’m on the edge of giving up.

To Renzei, thank you for always a chat away even it often ends up talking about nonsense. Haha. We may not talk that much right now, but I wish to see you soon as I visit Davao again!

To Sai, Rox and Miel, my go-to gurus! Yay! You always remind me how old I am in this industry but apparently, I was the one asking for your tips and advice. You guys are the real influencers (and real friends outside of everything of this)

To the whole DBS fam, you bring out the clingiest creature in me. I don’t know what I did to deserve all of you. I may not be with you as much as I want to, but it doesn’t matter. You treat me as though I really belong.

And last but not the least, how could I ever forget my bestie, Princess. I know we’re miles apart and we rarely see each other in years. We don’t even talk everyday but hey, nothing has changed ever since.

These are the few moments that I realize, who needs a boyfriend when friends keep up everything that I need? You guys are enough already. Keep your circle small as they say, but how can I?
