I'm now officially accepting Xmas gifts......


I stopped categorizing my acquaintances months ago after realizing that adhering in a strict labeling of  people principle doesn't help. Before, I was very particular as to who my friends, best friends and colleagues are, I don't mind now. Simply put, you cannot own people and all you could claim at the end of the day are the good memories you shared with them. When you can tell yourself that you had a good time with their company then that's it. There's simply no getting back the time. The emotions that you felt are the only realities you can hold dear in your heart.

That's how I regard my relationship with my former board mate SEBASTIAN. I can't explain it but we simply enjoy each others company in simple ways. A small talk is enough and a simple hey is already an assurance of each others company. I sometimes cannot understand though why he is so kind and thoughtful to me, something that I'm guilty of not being one to him.Whatever it is., an act of kindness is an act of friendship.

Sebastian....

Take yesterday for example, he came all the way from PASIG just to see me in the early morning. He actually told me about that way back August but its something I have taken rather lightly. Until the night before yesterday, I kept thinking what possible occasion could make him go here all of a sudden. I can't think of any.

And so I asked him, he said because he is on leave. That's it. Of coarse he brought with him lots a stuffs. He loves giving stuffs to people, something that I always object when we were boardmates. This time I was not able to say no--again. It's official. I received my 1st Xmas gift yesterday.

Other than that, he came to give me  PEPSI CANS from Saudi Arabia coz he knows that I am collecting. I will tell you about it next time. For now, I would like to say that I'm officially accepting gifts. hehe

Thanks a lot Sebastian.

  1. At least you realized that you cant own a friend but rather friendship. Tulad nga ng movie na in my life na linya: Hindi mo siya pag-aari. drama ko ha. Pero nareliaze ko rin yan. You learned from the friendship mismo or may mga instances na ganun ang situation. Tama ka dapat i-enjoy yung moment. Kapag magbigay ka dont expect something in return. Kung may nagawa ka, yan dahil gusto mo. Dahil masaya kang gawin yun. Pagkatapos yun na yun. Just do your best and enjoy it. Yun ang motto ko. You are lucky to have a friend like him at na-appreciate o na value mo yung ginagawa niya. Advance merry christmas!

  10. Base on my personal experience,yes its true! You really can't own a friend.People are people. They come and go.

    At ayoko ng mag-invest ng deep emotions sa isang kaibigan...ilalan ko na lang ito sa family ko hehehe...

    Buti ka pa napaaga ang pasko mo hehehe...pwede bang kaibiganin yang Sebastian n yan at baka bigyan niya din ako ng geps hehehe...
