My brother Jazon visited the Philippines a few years ago, and he rekindled his friendships with our childhood friends. He found Meggie on Facebook, and of course, I had to befriend Meggie too! We kept in touch through there, and I'm so glad we got to see each other for coffee back in January of this year when Bobby and I were visiting Manila. I'm so happy that I got to see her again twice in one year. The second time was when I went back to the Philippines in September for almost a month :) Meggie's mom's garden is beautiful, and I always thought to myself how fun it would be to photograph there. Thankfully, Meggie is a great sport and was up for a last-minute mini-session! We started our session with her "rockstar" outfit, and we both agreed that a dress would probably be better for the garden pictures ;) Thanks to her mom, Tita May, for being our awesome stylist and dressing up and accessorizing Meggie for the impromptu photo-shoot :)
**Updated 10/30/11-I found these old pictures of Meggie and I when she visited New York City back in 1996 :) I also just realized that these pictures were taken on my 15th birthday! Great times :)
I used to live a block away from Hard Rock Cafe in NYC!
