Good Old Friends.


Grace and Bro Raymund. Starbucks, Ayala-Cebu.


It felt almost like the universe deliberately placed us all three in one place at the same time. I was on my way to pick Mom at the office when I decided to drop by Starbucks. It's where I saw them -- Grace waving happily at me, and Bro Ray happily surprised to see me. "Whoa! Reunion!" he beamed. Although Bro Ray and I have been in touch through multiply and FB, we haven't seen each other for ages (15 years, I think).

I later on learned that they also just bumped into each other there. And then I came along and all three of us talked for awhile, to catch up on each other's lives.

Grace looked younger after she has given birth. She looked peacefully happy, too. Bro Ray is still exactly the same way I remembered him. Except that at that time, he wasn't a Jesuit yet. Like the old days, we laughed a lot while talking about anything and everything.

Sadly, I had to leave because Mom was waiting. So we quickly made plans for December -- me, to take photos of Grace's baby and us three to meet again; and Bro Ray invited me to dive with him and his sister at Apo Island. I don't know about the dive, but I would love to see them again, perhaps, over coffee. And oh, of course, photograph the beautiful Saana Isabella.

I love chance meetings like this. Then again, nothing really happens by chance.

I thought there for a sec if this photo was taken after your friend Grace gave birth. She looks amazing! Mura'g ni-blooming ug samot! Looks like post-partum is really treating her well!

Blooming, that's the word, Liz! I think it's because she's very happy. :)
