I almost thought that the get together will not happen, I was about to cancel everything because of the unexpected circumstances that happened yesterday. The plan was to go to a bar or to go clubbing and then sleep over at Krishna’s crib. But, since she has to go to their office early morning we have to cancel the sleep over. Plus, it was also my early birthday celebration with my friends.
Since, Pong was allowed to go this time, I realized that I should not waste that chance and should continue the plan but I just asked them to have dinner instead. They were cool with it.
Before we go to the place, I was thinking on how to get them all feel at ease since it’s their first time meeting each other. I was wondering if they will get along really well.
Krishna and Pong are my two best and closest friends ever since we we’re Second year college. I don’t think I can make it through college, especially our major is Nursing, without them. We’ve already experience so many downturns in our friendship already that I think, whatever happens, even though we don’t always see each other, the love and care will always be there. We have different personalities but you will not notice that whenever we’re together because we somehow bring out the silliness in each other. Pong is somehow shy and reserved. But, whenever we’re together, she can be really funny, she has gestures and sometimes facial expressions that you’ll not really understand but it will make you really laugh. Pong is really not her nickname, but we made this as her Korean name and ended as her College nickname. Everyone in school calls her Pong since then. One thing I can say about her, when she’s in love, she’s really, I mean really in love! Krishna, on the other hand is nostalgic for me. Whenever I see her, I just feel at home. We have almost the same taste in music, clothes and both of us loves writing. (check her out at: kountingkrishes) We can talk about everything under the sun, her out of this world and over the top ideas is what makes her really amusing.
However, my new friends, Karen and Abi are both really funny people. Karen, is a ninja, when she was still in the office, she always has plans on how to make me “gulat”. She looks older but her antics are more childlike than mine. She’s always on the go too. Abi, was one of those persons who I used to think that I would never like, aside from her name (which, I really really doesn’t like) she was also a bully. When she’s angry she’s really angry and when she’s nice she’s really nice. There were some attitudes of her that I don’t like but they don’t outshine those the ones that I like.
So, here’s what happened. I went with Abi because we came from work. When I saw Karen, I was surprised! She lost a whole load of weight I must say, I like it better when she’s still in her average weight. I don’t think being thin, suits her well. Funny when I saw Pong, I told her that she’s getting taller and when Krishna came and saw her, she said the exact same thing that I said. There we’re so many funny and mind blowing things that happened that night. Karen and Krishna found out that they both had the same dream of becoming a housewife. Karen asked us (Krishna, Pong and I) If we all both have the same taste when it comes to boys or was there a time that we liked a same boy. We all answered a big “No”. I think, that will never happen, us fighting over a boy. Never! Abi got an idea that we are all friends because we have the same kind of eyes! Funny, but we never thought about that.lol. We also talked about ways on what Krishna should do to get the love of her life. It was one of her problems nowadays. Karen and Abi gave her some tips.
The night ended and I was happy because everything turned out well. Abi texted me that Krishna and Poi (yeah she texted the wrong name again) are cool people. While Krishna said that Karen and Abi are enormously funny. They both had good thoughts about each other and that’s good! It was one of those times that you really treasure your friends and thank God that friendship exists. “Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.” So, I’m thankful that I had a set of good ones.
