Last Friday, I met up with some of my girl friends from college. We've known each other since freshman year and we
were stuck lived in the same dorm for 4 years. We managed to keep in touch all this time, always keeping updated with each others lives. We are all married-with-one-kid now. It's difficult for us to meet up because 2 of them live up north in Baguio which means a 5-hour drive from Manila. We visit them though. Baguio is a beautiful province, mountains all around, trees, flowers, cool climate (it's the only area in the Philippines that experienced something like snow last December).

And now, here we are (they look exactly the same! except for me... because I gained like 50lbs since 2002, tsk tsk tsk).
|15 years of friendship... and counting! I am blessed.|
Since we knew it was cooler in Tagaytay, Andrea finally got to wear her velvet dress. This was a gift from my husband's Aunt and Uncle who live in this area. Andrea gets a little hot in this dress when she wears it in Manila but here...

|I mean this one... this is NOT the live volcano.|
(even if it is NOT the Taal Volcano, there is no lake in the middle of that one, just dry land) looks more dramatic.
Before I end this post, let me share one last thing:
(that's why I was in the photo) for the roof. Can you tell she loved it? (Oh and please ignore our messy hair... we were in bed and in our pajamas getting ready for bed at this time).
