fria4Facts about friends:  50% of them know and like you because of the FAVORS you do or did for them; 30% of them have seen you at your BEST; 15% of them shared your PAIN; But… only 5% knows the REAL STORY of your entire life.

September 25 is the 268th day of the year (269th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 97 days remaining until the end of the year. It was also Fria Lee Arroyo’s 30th birthday. We celebrated her natal day with a barbecue party, all of her invites graced the event.

Friends are like a good bra, supportive, hard to find, and always close to your heart. That’s Fria! She’s wacoal and victoria secret combined.  We go way back, she was my officemate in some bank in Eastwood, Libis in 2004. She belonged to another testing team but we went to lunch together. We hit it off as friends from there on.

 We organized an ‘All about Fria’ charades as an ice breaker for her party. Charades is a game of pantomimes: you have to “act out” a phrase without speaking, while the other members of your team try to guess what the phrase is. The objective is for your team to guess the phrase as quickly as possible. In our case, we let them act out all fria2the movies and TV series Fria got hooked to from past to present.

It was a tough category knowing Fria had a different taste in music, movies, and TV shows. She liked the old stuff e.g. Wuthering Heights, Ice Castles, Twin Peaks (top rated old TV series in 90’s), Young Americans. She digs bossa nova and all that non mainstream music which you never heard of unless being played by her in her laptop. Also, Fria is the only person I know who spend most of her time with the computer. She wakes and sleeps with her laptop so we will never know what other old stuff she surfed in the net.

We are in the middle of the game and having too much fun when the security guard knocked in our door and informed us that neighbors are complaining of our excessive noise. They will call out the police if we don’t stop, said the guard. Now, we are used to getting such complaints almost all the time when a party is happening in our unit. But this time it was only 11:45 pm, usually the protest will turn up at 2am- 3am. They say,  “if it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right.” We must be having too much fun, done everything right that’s why we got scolded that early.

fria3To Fria – There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will. One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time. Life is too short. We’ve got to live life well. Let’s stop worrying over what-ifs and be with people you want to be with, do the things your eager to do, after all, it’s only you, who will decide of how your life will turn out.. to be happy and contented.
