More pictures behind the cut. 🙂
We met up with Kuya Joey’s fiancé after our little trip to Liberty Island and we had this conversation.
Connie: Where are you from?
Me: The Philippines.
Connie: For real?! That’s crazy! Your English is really good.
Me: *thinking: Whuuuuut! :))*
Kuya Benjie: She’s been smiling since we got here! She loves New York!
Mama: No, she just really smiles a lot. She can get away with murder with that smile of hers.
KB: Oh, I see. She can get away with murder, huh?
M: And she’s a Gemini.
KB: And she’s a Gemini? Oh no! Dual personality! You’ll never know what she’s capable of!
Me: *thinking: TRUE THAT!*
I’ve grown fond of Kuya Benjie in the few hours we’ve been together. He acted as my life coach that night. He told me to go after my dreams of studying in New York. “You’ll never know if you don’t try” was his #1 line. I took it as a sign from God. We’ll see what happens in the next few months. 🙂
