He was my birthmate, classmate, and bestfriend rolled into one. But our friendship was put to the test when he moved to Guam after our first year in high school and had lost contact with each other since then. 

After nine years, this guy flew back to the Philippines and asked for a reunion together with my siblings. SM Pampanga became a witness to our most unforgettable moment – our first date. We had a great time at Skyranch where we both conquered our fear of heights when we braved to ride the giant ferris wheel.

Since that day, he never left my side. Now, I’m blessed to share that my birthmate, classmate, and bestfriend is now my beloved. And thank you, SM for being part of our relationship's many firsts!
