The first time I saw her I thought she was bossy, not friendly and a total show off. But after getting to know her, she has become someone whom has inspired me. Today, not only is she my friend, she is my greatest confidant, my sister (although she has like 4 or 5 sisters already I keep forgetting) and a person whom I hold dear to my heart.

Today is her last day here in Taiwan. She will be heading back home to the Philippines tomorrow and it just occurred to me while I was walking back to our dorm, we will no longer ride our bikes together, where I am always in front and she's at the back. Forever slow *hahaha* We won't be eating at our favourite 'Spaghetti Shop', where we always order rice and not spaghetti anyway. We won't be watching movies in my room anymore every Saturday. I won't be able to speak to her without my saliva splattering on her face (P.S: She does it too). We won't get to meet downstairs our dorm anymore and end up wearing kind-of the same outfits. I won't get to hear the juicy details of her soon-to-be love life *please don't kill me for saying this*.

But the one thing I will miss most, is the person I become when she's around.

Life is amazing and I thank God I somehow met her here in Taiwan. In the midst of slowly building and shaping myself, she has added her own essence of nurturing and guidance in me and I will forever be grateful. I don't know how long I will go on writing. I don't know if I have even said everything I want to say. But I do know if I don't stop I will end up crying even more.

So here it goes (again),

Thank you Katreena..

For accepting me as the crazy human being I am. For always picking pictures that only you look good in *haha* I hope you know that this is not the end of me bugging you! We have FaceTime and blablabla but I will miss your presence a lot. I may not show it, but trust me I do. I will miss having someone who blogs as well and shares the same drive and persistence. I will miss having a person who can take good pictures of me so that its actually legit to be posted up. I will miss us talking crap and how the human population is slowly getting on our nerves. I will miss us wasting each others time *haha* I will miss all our shopping adventures and fitting room craziness, shouting from one end to the other end. I will miss making ugly faces not caring if you will judge me *haha* I will miss talking to you in my squeaky minion voice although it shalt not be the end of it *haha* I will miss the person I am when we are together. I will miss you Kat, the most. 

I know you will be travelling the world soon. Next stop China right? I hope I can join you some day. After I graduate and hopefully get employed to save up for my travels. Maybe we will stumble upon each other again in another dimension of this world. OK, Mavinia, too touchy *haha*

Oh Kat! One more thing. I never told you this, but here it goes. I want you and everyone to know. 

I always thought I was the most passionate and determined person, until I heard about your goals, your dreams and your achievements. Its true in life, you will meet many people. Some are lucky to be called friends, some even luckier. Thank you for believing in me, supporting me and cheering me up. I have never seen myself trying to copy or imitate a person. Nor do I have a solid role model whom I can look up to, other than my parents of course, but now there's you. Since you're 2 years older, taller and chubbier than me *haha* it kind of makes it legit. But I know many people whom are older, taller and chubbier too. Maybe I choose you! 'Pokemon'! OK stop. But seriously. Thank you Katreena (again), I somehow see the best version of myself in a part of you. 

Another thing I want you and everyone to know is that you're an amazing writer. I don't know where you find all these words mustered in you, but some of your articles give me them chills yo (Check out Kat's blog at LoveAfterLove). Likewise, I thought I was good till I met someone better. Thank you Kat, for coming at a really important time in my life and thank you for gaining all the weight that I lost here too *HAHAHA*

There will be too many pictures of us on our phones, and I will be glancing through them and watching all our funny moments together. Our singing covers too! Oh yeah don't forgot to post them. My goodness. Just realised there is so much left to write.

One last one, I will miss calling you Maria, when everyone else calls you Kat.

Much love always,

Mavinia a.k.a Soul Sister
