I will speak as the lucky guy to become one of the closest friend of these two terrific characters, Faye and Pael. And to speak on their behalf, this won’t be a tribute that’ll become a collector’s item, rather, this will be a representation of my love for two of my bestest buddies. First of all, Pael’s a bitch. Faye’s a biatch. These two, when you put them together, that would be me. Mean, and a little classy. If there’s one thing that overpowers their divine demon, that would be their intelligence and creativity. Faye is a good writer. She can take you to where her stories are happening, and make you feel the narrated scenes. She’s one helluva story teller. So is pael, but Pael have his own dark side when it comes to writing, and literary. He’s a computer warlord, and a social monster, wild and tame at the same time.
They both love photography, and with the quality of their shots that i have seen, i must say, they deserve to have those high end cameras rather those people who use them as an accessory.
Mess with me, and these two can face you, tear you, and grind your soul. I know that when i’m in trouble, they’re always under my wings, ready to back me up. Not that they’re war freaks, but because they know that i’m that weak to be in that kind of ground. You see, Faye is a Caviteña, born and raised. And you know, you can’t afford to mess with people from the land of the great. Pael on the other hand, is a wild one. Just a fighter that can verbally rape you. They got my back, and as far as I can defend them, i’m returning the favor.
if there’s one thing i learned from Faye, it’s that, you can never be too happy if you try. yeah, sounds like a line from a song. Faye can find a dose of happiness everywhere. unlike other people who spends so much money just to find satisfaction, i learned from Faye that happiness is like the wind. It’s everywhere. And that If i just care less, i can be a happier person.
With Pael, i learned to PRIORITIZE things. The value of setting your priority, and being responsible for whatever i’m doing. It’s such a shame that i learned this from him back when we were college, and i got late from a class meeting. Pael shouted at me and said, “Sana matuto tayong mag prioritize!” From that day forward, i never dealt with stupid decisions in life.
these two people, made a huge mark in my life. I always tell them, the three of us, can really make a creative group in our class. They totally agreed. Well, it doesn’t end there. We have a lot of dreams. PAEL and I dream of building our own publishing company and start our own magazine. FAYE and I dream of working in the Modelling industry (oh, i forgot, that was my dream) faye would be my future in demand photographer.
One day in your life, you will find someone whom you will share the same field of interests, same weird stuff you love, same brands of everything you need, same taste for music, food, television shows, and fall in love with one actor. When that time comes, never let that person go. He can be your friend, he can be your lover. Whatever he may be, never let the flame die and keep the bonded spirit, be bonded forever.
