Trust. Believe. Love.
When we were young, Mabeth and I dreamt of a lot of things. I remember we had this ridiculous dream of putting up some kind of BAR or CLUB, and to come up with the funds, we agreed on collecting P50.00 a week, but when we realized that we’d only go as far as P100,000 --- we scrapped our dream (because what kind of BAR can we open with 100.000?) While in College, when we realized that I was going to be a DENTIST and she (at that time) wanted to become a plastic surgeon, we dreamt of putting up a COSMETIC CLINIC. We were going to be the best doctors in the country but she eventually changed directions, so we scrapped that too. Another dream we have involved falling in love and meeting the person who will love us, forever. We dreamt of becoming brides and then becoming wives and of having babies together. We said that when we had our own children, we’d force our children to be best friends like we are.
Eight months ago, Mabeth and her prince, Karym, got engaged –- Last Thursday, April 18 2012, K & M, said their I Dos.
My last trip to the beach was two years ago, with my cousins and the last beach trip that Bon and I had was three years ago, in Palawan, with our dentist friends. Needless to say, I am beach-deprived, so I tried my best to make the most of the trip. We booked a room at White House, since the wedding was in Station 1, and we stayed there for FOUR DAYS. We decided that it was time for some R&R --- especially since we’ve been quite busy at work, these past few months. We made sure to make the most of our trip to Boracay --- No patients. No article writing. No household chore --- just sand, sea and sun (food and booze).
For most of us, it was our first BEACH WEDDING, so it was such a delight to have experienced that. Compared to traditional weddings, it was so laid back and simple. It was a barefoot ceremony, and the sand was just lovely to walk on, even in the afternoon. The boys looked pretty awesome too. The Male Sponsors were in their BARONGs and SHORTS; and the other male entourage were wearing kamisa de chinos, so simple and perfect for the beach. The other guests were asked to arrive in “beach chic” attire and I told Bon to dress up like a BOY BAND in the beach.
I still haven’t uploaded the photos, so I have nothing to show you but this…
Happy SUMMER everybody!
