INC Wedding at Central Temple

It’s my dream come true …to wed at INC Central Temple in Diliman, Quezon City. It was here where my fiance  proposed to me last  December 2007. :)

It was a sunny afternoon of August 8, 2011 ….as early as 3:30 P.M. when  I,  Tito Jun and Michelle (one of the FABS coordinator), accompanied me inside the bridal car to the temple.

I stayed for a while inside the bridal car, until our Minister, Bro. Romeo Manalac and all our ninongs and ninangs are in and ready. The ceremony started at 4 o’clock in the afternoon.

I may be an orphan, with less than 10 family members who attended (my cousins in the father side are all in Canada), my cousins in mother’s side are in the U.S. But i’m so thankful to my Tito Jun, with wife,  Tita Baby and only son Ian (believe it or not, that’s the only kamag-anak I  have in Zambales! hehe). Such a small family we have. I would also like to thank  my cousin Bernadine, representing the family of Tito Boy in Cebu. :)

Mostly, the bulk of our guests  came from my friends starting from Highschool (Sta. Cruz Academy in Zambales), college friends (UPLB), including my landlady (Ate Imeeh, daughter Tintin, Randy and  Angel), my UP Marine Science colleagues where I worked as a researcher before going to med school, PLM doctors, my co-interns at V. Luna Hospital, my co-RODs in Casaul Hospital, my colleagues at TUA-St. Luke’s College of Nursing.

Thank you for all of my friends who made me feel I’m not alone in my life …! These are the people I will treasure forever. :)

(**I am a very friendly person, as you can see in all of my posts, I have a lot of friends. But I have learned something here in Malaysia to at least be cautious in making friends. Now I realized, I’d rather keep my TRUE, TANGIBLE friends, whom I can interact in person, rather than those VIRTUAL ones….. because others prefer virtual friends  simply because they cannot interact with TRUE people…!!!)
