This is the quickest way we can get to taking a quick break from the intense heat that is Manila. Tagaytay was only two hours away and thankfully we were welcomed by a city surrounded by fog. Perfection. We were fortunate to choose this time of the year to look for a hotel to house our family during our wedding. Presently, destination weddings are the in thing nowadays among couples. We actually opted somewhere nearer but we just could not find a place that best represented us.
They say marriage is all about teamwork and compromise. Thank you for carrying part of the load I have imposed on my shoulders. At first, I thought planning was stressful, until you stepped in and made it one crazy, childlike adventure of unauthorized dumplings from Tai Ho Wan (André was doing monologues in the car to keep himself awake during long drives. He mistook unauthorized dumping to unauthorized dumpling and from then on came a long series of exchanges from various Chinese restaurant chefs to a wandering Xiao Long Bao – “YOU!” he’d start off his scenario, “Xiao Long Bao! What are you doing here?! Tai Ho Wan is looking for you!” then he’d laugh by himself, “Me? NO! I belong to Din Tai Fung”, a smaller voice would answer (parang baliw lang hahahaha) but watching him was amusing. Better than those Iflix movies we’d put on from time to time during heavy traffic.
Thank you for allowing me to take snap shots of you and passing it of as candid when you knew I was taking a photo. You know my style…to make it look more natural. You know me. My inanities, my creativity and my bursts of frustration when things are not in place.
My childhood playmate is amazing. I cannot believe we’re old enough to get married. Where did all those years go? No?
I cannot imagine life without you…and pancakes and pretty photos.
God is amazing. You are a beauty. 🙂 You soul is a beauty. I love you, baby.
To more photo diaries like this till life captures beautiful memories without the convenience of a camera – because we’re to old to use it.
