Patty In Cebu
Posted May 11, 2007on:
Patty is one of my good friends/classmate from highschool at De La Salle Zobel. She’s the athletic type who used to be a varsity player in volleyball and track & field (if my memory serves me right, hehe…) and a consistent honors class student.
When we stayed for after school practices (volleyball, group singing etc), she would readily offer to drive us home. (That’s right, she drove a car. Cool?) And everytime she did, our knuckles would hurt as we gripped hard on anything to keep us steady. And in chorus we would cry “Patttyyyy, ang bilis mo namannn…”. She was “kaskasera” back in those days (a long long time ago in the 80s) when the Zapote-Alabang road was not yet congested.
In college, we all went our separate ways with some of my friends taking up medicine, (Patty is one of them), while some, Engineering or Accountancy (like myself). Some migrated to other countries while some stayed put. Patty remained in Cavite, I moved to Cebu.
To Patty, 3 paragraphs na ito… dami ko pang gusto i-kwento like lovelife… etc…. Hahaha… Wag na lang no?
Last Wednesday, after a diving trip in Malapascua for a few days with her (equally adventurous and athletic) daughters, we had lunch at the IT Park. It was really good seeing her and her daughters. It felt like the old times. Not that we’re old, we just don’t want to admit that. Masakit ba magpa-botox sayo, Dr. Patty? (Does it hurt to have botox injections?) Hehehe… Though a lot have changed for both of us since highschool, we still remain like we were before – good friends to the end.
