Cherry(2012)- I met her through Michelle's friend (Jerjay) I asked for cherry's number and texted her. I found out that our apartment complex is next to each other. Since, then we hang out pretty much every week and always visit each other until (September of 2013- My family finally move out in the apartment and bought our new house. Then, July of 2014- Cherry and her family bought their new house and It was few blocks away from my house) It's so funny how things unfold we are officially neighbors for the second time around.

Rose (2012)- We met at my workplace! She was shopping that time and her hubby asked me if I'm Filipino and I said YES! and then Me and Rose talked as if we been friends for long time. ( Now we are working in same place!:)





Hobbies and Interest in LIFE:)

- We do hang out pretty much every week on our day offs. We cook foods, eat and watched movies on DVR. We also share same fashion when it comes to SPORTS. Yes! we are a big Buckeye fan.
