almost 3 weeks ago: sunday morning. woke up much earlier that i normally do. went to the can. tried to go back to sleep. checked facebook. and then there. i was floored by the shocking news of ching's passing. i tried to talk myself out from believing all those facebook posts from our common friends. wishing it was a dream, i shakingly picked up the phone and called manila. it is true. ching is gone. gone.
i feel really bad for her brother, clyde (who is one of my very close friends). he didn't get to say bye to her. it's really heartbreaking and very unfair.
the outpour of love, support, and prayers for her family was overwhelming. it really sucks though that she's gone too soon. i know she could've done more amazing things. i also know that He has a plan set out for those around ching, most specially for her family.
my favorite shared experience (jimmy fallon-ing it) with ching? hands down, that time when we almost drowned in the river. we were about 10 or 11 at that time. we all just laughed our heads off after it happened. we do know how to care less, yes.
everybody misses you ching! you are a unique soul.
again, in that bright morning, ching. in that bright beautiful morning...
