My best friend, Maila, from waaayyy back into my Elementary days moved to Chicago back in 2006. I haven't seen her for years until she finally was able to go on a short vacation last year. We're the only single ladies left in our group (two of our girls are already hitched) so it's a toss-up as to who's going to be the last woman standing.

Whenever I talk about her, I always get misty-eyed because I really miss her. She and I have gone through so much drama, and during all of our trying times, we always got each other's back. She was my confidante as I was hers. And she was always such a sweetheart, she was really thoughtful and she always gave me little gifts at totally random times. And true enough, I was so surprised to receive a call from her mom saying Maila sent a little care package for me.
|Plastic full of goodies ^.^|
She knows I love the Japanese Blossom scent of Bath and Body Works so she sent me the entire line which includes a body mist, lotion, shower gel and hand sanitizer. She even threw in a Pocketbac of my zodiac sign, Taurus (the little blue one).
My heart was pumping excitedly when I saw the Old Navy plastic inside her care package, and I squealed with delight when I finally saw the content of that plastic bag: a Rolling Stones Vintage Statement Tee! I remember chatting with her a few months back and while we were talking about random stuff, we discussed about clothes and I told her I've been searching high and low in the Philippines just to find this shirt. This one truly proves just how thoughtful she is.
People come and go, and as we go about living our own lives, it's inevitable that even the best of friends will have to go on separate ways. This holds true to me and Maila and our two other friends but distance did not make our friendship ebb away. She can still read me like how she did before, she still knows what would make me smile and what things would make me really happy. And this tiny care package from her absolutely brightened up my day.
This is a very late acknowlegement (my apologies), but Lhamo of Thoughts of a Silent River awarded me this blog award last October 24, 2011. Lhamo is a talented writer and she writes a superb blog that's very inspirational and motivates me to keep on going and Smile to Life. She's a very thoughtful, kind and sweet blogger, and I encourage you guys to check out her blog and follow her. Lhamo, many thanks for the award, you are too kind, and I'm very grateful.
I was feeling a little hearty-heart thus I cut my slice of Roast Beef Pizza into a shape of a heart. Haha... There are other reasons for that as well, which I shall unveil in the coming days. And before you guys deducing 1001 possible scenarios let me just say it's not love-life related, sorry to burst your bubble. But it's going to make me extremely happy so I hope I can rally some support from you guys *haha*.
Hope y'all had a lovely weekend. It's the long weekend for us here, but I don't get to indulge in the luxuries and privileges of long weekends, perks and banes of the job but hey, I'm not complaining :). Long weekends mean more customers for me, and I just restocked so I'm hoping for a boost in my sales tomorrow *fingers crossed*.
And don't forget to check out Thoughts of a Silent River! Thanks for the award, Lhamo! G'day!
