1. She is undoubtedly the easiest person to ask to come with you when you want to eat. (Haha) A normal conversation between us would go this way:
Aimee: Norbs, punta tayo wendy’s gusto ko ng wing ding tsaka ng biggie ice tea.
Norbs: E nakaligo nako e. Kakatamad.
Aimee: Magboombox meal kaya ako? Sarap din nung chicken with chili con carne or ung spaghetti meal nila.
Norbs: Sayang, nakatoothbrush nako e.
After 30 seconds..
Norbs: Bwisit ka,
2. She is the impending laughter that is waiting to explode. You tell her a problem and she counters it with a joke. You are frantically looking for something and she tells you she saw thrown away by somebody else. Then you later realize it was a joke. It takes a lot of getting used to, but still a Norbs in your life adds a lot of happy sprinkles in it.
3. She goes out of her way to prove that we could have honest to goodness, lesbo moments.
norbs: depressed na nmn ata ako
norbs: eto siguro ung nafefeel mo last time
norbs: na parang, wala, wala maglolove satin
aimee: eh norbs
aimee: ganyan pa din nafifeel ko no
aimee: parang, its hard to love me? ganun ba?
norbs: bat ganun aimee
norbs: sabi ko nga sa friend ko
norbs: bakit kung sino ung kaya magmahal ng buo, sila ung laging sinasaktan ng someone unworthy
norbs: ganun daw ata tlga
norbs: ayan, im sad na din
norbs: aims, ganun nga ba tayo kahirap mahalin?
aimee: hindi ko alam norbs e
aimee: kahit nga sa friends diba nafifeel ko yan
aimee: pero ako mahal kita
norbs: ako din aimee
norbs: tayo na lang
aimee: if it makes u feel better
norbs: salamat aimee :)
4. She understand the mean and brat side that we both have. Its so amazing how I say one thing really bratty and she understands and agrees in the same. She works at Eastwood, I work in
5. She looks and moves exactly as her mother and sister. It’s like looking at replicas over and over. Peace Norbs!
6. The friendships she has been built throughout the years. I think some of her friends are those she has entered grade 1 or kinder with. Hi AJ!
7. She always always always look so business-like. From waking up before 5am to iron her hair, to wearing scarves, and then looking like she’s attending a business convention on our way to the beach. She pretends to be mad at first when you tease her about it but later on imagines situations and dialogues between her and colleagues that she is supposed to meet for the imaginary convention.
8. It has never failed to amaze me how she never gets tired of chatting and visiting forums and egroups and hack sites (hehehe). Hence her nick, Chat Chantiago.
9. Her whole body shakes when she is laughing.
10. The 8 years of friendship that we have.
And just because being 24 is so much memorable to her than to any other.. Congrats Norbs. Love you!!
