For those of you who don’t know, the #BloggerBesties is the collective name of Camille Co, Laureen Uy, Patricia Prieto, Nicole Andersson, Kryz Uy, Lissa Kahayon and our honorary “blogger” Sean Go. Our name is cheesy, I know. But when I first called our group such on my blog years ago, I had no idea it would stick. I just wanted an easy way to refer to my blogger friends without having to type all their names out. If I had known this would be the name our readers would call us, I would’ve tried harder and came out with a more creative one. (Ha! Yeah right! This coming from the girl who named her blog, “Camille Tries To Blog”.) But anyhow, so there. Hello, we’re the blogger besties!
Through the years, it has become harder and harder for all 7 of us to get-together. Everyone is always traveling and busy with work, it’s a surprise we’re all still friends. LOL. In a bid to save our friendship (dramatic, I know), we’ve actually set a mandatory lunch date every Tuesday of this year. We call it our “Tita Tuesdays”. (Tita sort of means auntie in Filipino.) Every quarter, we tally our attendance scores (yes, we count attendance) and whoever has the lowest score has to buy the person with a highest score a pricey gift. Yes, we have come to this. But even so, we’re still rarely ever complete. This is why our Christmas get-togethers are so precious because for once, no one is absent. Everyone’s schedule is taken into account so that at least once a year, we can all sit down and just enjoy each other’s company. Because when everyone is around, we have 10x the fun and 10x the riot. Just watch the video below to see what I mean.
Happy holidays, everyone!
