My Confirmation =)

My good friend Shawie is getting married on July 01! I never knew that you needed so many things in order to get married in the Catholic church. One of them is that you have to be confirmed already (given that you're baptized in the holy Catholic church). She asked me to be her "ninang" for her confirmation and I was more than delighted to oblige. I told my sister Che about it and she reminded me that I myself haven't had this sacrament as well as she hasn't. I told Shawie about it and she told me that my sis and I should all go together and get Confirmed with her. It was indeed a great chance since I was to be there as her ninang.Saturday was the scheduled confirmation seminar, held at the Manila Cathdral. My sister and I went there a bit early toavoid the traffic. We decided to have lunch at Starbucks. As we were enjoying our coffee and sandwiches, a familiar face walked into the room....it was Jake Roxas. He was very good looking in person, I must say. My sister, who is always starstruck, had this crazy idea to get a picture taken with him. I told her "and jologs mo ah" but what the heck...its seem like a fun idea. My sis gave him the "look" and he smiled and we approached him for out mini photo shoot. Oh, he was a really friendly person. He asked if we were all by ourselves and that if he could join us for coffee. Ofcourse we said it was ok! He pulled up a chair and we chatted along like old friends. Nice, nice guy =)



We headed on to Intramuros and met up with Shawie for our seminar. I didn't know that a confession was to be done that same afternoon as well. It was a very spiritual and enlightening aftrnoon.Later that evening I had dinner with my good friend Pin at Peri-peri chicken in Promenade. I know I swore-off this place a long time ago, but I just had this sudden urge to go eat there that night. It turned out alright. After that I met up with my friend Harry and the rest of our old bora gang for some drinks at Grilla.

A nice wholesome day it was =)
