November 7-10, 2013
Cebu, Philippines

It was a long overdue F4K get-together. We were pretty pumped up and very excited to finally witness Jay and Aye's big day. But then, Yolanda/Haiyan decides to enter the show. That's what made it a twist to an already very memorable weekend, one which I can honestly say, we'd most likely talk about and remember for the rest of our lives.
The night before the wedding with F4K girlfriends was Aye's shower party. What we've planned to be a chill sparty became an impromptu fun shower at the hotel instead. It's always a riot to have all of us together in one space. Wait 'til we get to the reception. :)

Despite major changes in the wedding due to the storm, the show must go on! It was deeply moving to see Jay and Aye finally tie the knot and exchange their vows. Not even the strongest typhoon ever recorded could ever stop this love! I'm so happy to have witnessed this special moment in their lives and I pray that they have a long, blessed and blissful marriage ahead of them. :)

Fun times after the wedding. Just like good ol' days. What is an F4k weekend without photoshoot at every corner and nook? Oh yes, we are cam-whores. :D

At the couple's reception. I was practically struggling with my tears as I didn't want to leave and go back to Singapore.

The weekender made me realize how much I missed my friends and how, no matter the distance and time and how we have changed, we're still the same in things that matter. I am proud to say that we'll always be F4K, a friendship indeed for keeps. And no matter how old we are and what stage in our lives we are, we can count on each other through the storms that life brings (literally and figuratively). And that sometimes too, the weekend was a reminder that God is in the reins and His plans superceeds all other things, including our own. All we have to do is put our trust and faith in Him. :)

It's been weeks since Haiyan/Yolanda struck its wrath on the Philippines. My heart still breaks looking at news of devastation that the storm brought, especially after a brief stint in December at home. At the same time, it is encouraging and touching to see nations and everyone have come together to aid Philippines during this difficult time. There is still hope for us after all. :)
