I’ve only known Caloy from 2007 but it felt that six years of friendship is equivalent to six decades, yes that includes, perhaps, our past lives. I first met him in Thailand, though we did not work in a same company, we had the same passion for photography. He was the one who introduced me to world of DSLRs. And I am hated him for that. Kidding, I am thankful.
Few months later, he introduced to me his girlfriend, Che, via webcam as she was working in Italy during that time. Believe it or not, I became close to Che too, whom I call ‘Nay because of her unlimited advices. And yes, we became text mates too. Of course, who could forget the times when our lives revolved on Friendster. It was the easiest way of being in touch with each other.
If I could pick one unforgettable experience I had with these two, it was the time when Caloy went to Norway after his contract in Thailand ended. I knew how excited he was as he will be in the same continent as Che, so he planned for a surprise and I was the (unfortunate) accomplice. He told his family back in the Philippines that he was going home that day but instead he was heading for Norway. Before leaving, he told me that he will contact me in three days and that he will be the one to inform Che as well as his family. I have to keep my mouth shut. Che, not getting used of not receiving any text from Caloy, started sending me text messages. I tried to ignore. She started calling. I ignored. I got drunk to feel less guilty. Haha! Two days later, Caloy gave me a quick call telling me that I can break the news to Che not to worry about him. He told me that he was just using an officemate’s mobile. I called Che early in the morning (Italy time) and I can still remember how emotional she was. She had to kept her voice low as her roommates were still sleeping. She called me again later that day, telling me that Dade (Caloy’s father) wanted to talk to me. Whew! That was the longest 3 days of my life. This could have been my speech during the wedding.
Seeing your closest friends exchanging I do’s is a gift. Caloy and Che exuded that aura of love, not only during their big day, but they have been carrying it since the day they first saw each other. Everyone inside the church and reception hall must have been inspired by their love story. Emotions, laughter, tears filled the room – a testament on how they are loved by many.
May you be blessed with hundreds little Caloys and Ches and that their bestfriends will be little Totomais. I know you’ll continue to love each other not only in every corner of your room, but in every place in the world.
Congratulations and Best Wishes again Bespren and ‘Nay
