I’ve been stumbling upon friends out of the blue lately. Coincidentally, Blue is the name of the most recent friend that I’ve exchanged an Oh-my-gosh-you’re-here moment with.

We separately went to Rockwell for a friend’s painting exhibit but ended up visiting the painting displays together. Blue saw me loitering at the food court area and the rest is history. At the exhibit, we exchanged another oh-my-gosh-you’re-also-here moment with our artist friend, Nino Hernandez who was present in spirit (or should I say, in painting?) :)

After, we ate at World Bangers then goofed around with some possible Halloween Costumes for November 1 at Toy Kingdom.

A day before this…I met Marielle who I call Yelliebabeh at Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP). I never thought I’d see this girl in a place outside a Frisbee field or a bar. But I did and I was happy.

(...uh-hem that explains the height difference *wink*)
We walked around trying to look for Tim Santos, another Frisbee pal who works for BSP. We didn’t find him though but still got something out of the adventure – a stronger heart. :)

My work enables me to meet a lot of personalities most people only get to see on TV.

But what I cherish the most are colleagues, friends, and ordinary people who I meet along the way. Compared to big shot politicians, these people are the ones I could relate to more…the ones who one way or another, have enriched my life.

So don’t be afraid to enlarge your world.
That’s the only way you get to meet new people who might be individuals important to you in the future.
Yesterday was supposed to be my alone time.
But because once upon a time I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a shot at throwing a disc…the reality turned out much better.Pin It Now!
