I suddenly felt the urge to look at one of my old (really old) albums. I still remember. We were roommates at Kamia Residence Hall: Baby Songlinco, Cora De Jesus (now Veneracion), and me. Without getting into any sort of pact we became the tightest of friends- even when we don't see each other. I've been out of the country for almost three decades and we've seen each other for, say, only 7 or 8 times in between, but the bond never got any lesser. Somehow each one of us knows that we have each other no matter what. The lower photo was taken when I went back for a visit in 2001. We revisited our beloved dormitory and reminisced almost non-stop. Our girths may have become wider, weights heavier and wrinkles more, but the depth of our friendship stays the same.
