Dear Bestie,


Happy birthday sa pinaka buot kg gwapa k na miga! It’s so hard to believe that today you turn 18! Charot lng! I mean plus five years hehehe. Wow! We are already 23 years old but still beautiful? Hehehe! I mean we are still bestfriends since birth. Thank You so much for almost 17 years of friendship no matter how far you are but our friendship will always remain forever. This has been a long time coming. I know that it’s scary to step into this new phase of life (I’m scared too) but I’m so thankful that I have you to go through it with you.

We’ve been through so much in the last seventeen years and I know that there’s so much more for us in the future. We will still have more travel adventures to come.


I am so thankful for the times that we’ve been inseparable and the times that we’ve grown apart, because in the end, both taught us that we need each other in our lives. I don’t know what I would do without you, if I’m honest. We’ve come so far from those shy girls in first grade. (And both of us have the same hairstyle, we eat lunch together, we play jackstone in the lobby or even Chinese garter, summer sleep over in your home while eating your favorite Choco Web from Dunkin Donuts ahahaha! , and many more).

You’re one of the best people I know to just sit down and talk to for hours over coffee, or dinner, or shopping or sleepover in your home. You’re one of the best to adventure with too. Hahaha!  You’re the most down to earth person I know. Very smart, loving and humble and I’m so thankful for that.


In your twenties, there are a lot of new opportunities that you will have. I hope that you find each and every one of them and embrace them with arms wide open. I hope that whatever your heart desires, it’ll find. I hope that you find true happiness everywhere you go. I hope that you find adventures everywhere you look, and that you can travel to the places that you want to see (and that I can come along sometimes)! I hope that you’re able to go where you want to go and be who you want to be.

I’m so excited that we get to go into our twenties together, and that even through everything, our friendship is stronger than ever. I love you, Bestie! Thanks for being my best friend for the last seventeen years. Here’s to many years more to come! I love you so much Bestie! Mwah! God bless! I hope you love the painting I gave to you. 


Sincerely from your Loyal Bestfriend,
