Parting is such a sweet sorrow…

Ive been very, very, very busy this week that I cant even think of what to say after 2,717 days here in this country.

All I could say is: Its been a fabulous life!

When I landed in this city on November 1, 2002, I was so naive, virgin to the world, fugly and thin (my waistline was 24!).

And I was young then.

 (Sorry, if I didnt ask everyone. I was freakin busy camworing!)

Fabulous was not even a word I used to say. It was like a word reserved for extra, super  wonderful stuff. 

All I had then was the greediness to explore, to go on an adventure … and a purpose to heal a broken heart.

I do still have the first two—and the last one?

I can assure you that my heart is already healed and that I am ready to face the guy who caused it.

I would even thank him for the pain he caused—if not for it, I could still have been in the Philippines and I would have never known the beauty of being a backpacker, alone, independent, bitchy and fabulous!

…and for having lots of friends from all walks of life.

They have changed and shaped me. All their stories, musings and personalities have made me into something I could have never achieved if I had listened to the doubts of my decision to go out of the country.

Tomorrow, Ill leave this city I have learned to love, despite the pollution and its shortcomings, and sail on to the next adventure I dont even know whats in store for me.

With fabulous friends around, this place IS a HOME.

But, I am hopeful. I am an eternal optimist. So I believe.

For all of you who came to my FAGTASTIC goodbye party last Tuesday, THANK YOU so much from the bottom of my heart.

And for those who missed it and sent me messages, thanks for the thoughts. They mean a lot to me.

“Parting is such a sweet sorrow, till it be morrow!”
