FLOR: WARFAIRY BLOGGER

It's that time of the month once again where I feature one of my friends in my blog. And finally, I'll be able to feature someone who actually has a blog. Although, she hasn't updated it in a few weeks.

But before I feature this friend of mine though, let me just plug her 'naghihikahos' blog. It kind of is having an identity crisis at the moment because initially when she started it, it was supposed to be about her hobby then, which was airsoft (hence it's name), but lately it's been more about her travels. So I don't really know what it's all about anymore... You can visit the blog HERE so she could have more hits. She promised to update that soon.


NOTHING IN COMMON
I met Florzelech or Flor after I graduated, during our training in my first job. At first we weren't really that close as she has her own clique and I had none (I wasn't a loner, I just hang around different people all the time). Anyway, she never really stood out for me because I thought she's really little. Plus, add the fact that I have a lady teammate who once made me touch her boob, so there you go.

But then one time, I found out that she graduated in the same class as my classmate from high school. Suddenly we have something we can talk about. It really didn't last long, as I'm not really that close with that classmate from high school. What I did find out though, is that where she lives is on the same way when I go home from work.
So we finally have something in common... I noticed that people who go home together or go to work together tend to become close, as they're always with each other at the start or at the end of the day. That's how we actually started to at first become acquaintances.

WHAT I KNOW AND HATE ABOUT WOMEN I FOUND OUT FROM HER
If you still don't know, I came from an all-boys school my entire life, with the exception of pre-school. So basically my first job was my initiation to a mixed sexes environment. And her being my friend back then and spending most of the day with her kinda taught me how to interact with a woman.
Unfortunately, I also learned some things that I really didn't like about the opposite sex. I really hated it when we're in the mall, she spends about an hour/ hour and a half just walking by the women's shoes section just to try some shoes, slip-ons or slippers that she has no plans of buying.
That's partly my fault, because I was the one who talks her into walking with me from PBComTower to Greenbelt then Landmark then Glorietta so we can buy my comics then before heading off to the MRT.

And through that, I actually learned the technique on how to stop women from lingering in one store longer than they should.

And she's a fierce competitor. I rarely win against her for most number of sales when we were teammates. Remember my comment about women being competitive, I had my initial impression about that from Flor. I think she's won a few spiffs from her being a seller, none of which she shared with us, her friends.

From her, I also learned that not all women are martyrs who men could just, you know... push around. She fights back. She's the only girl I know, whom I can throw insults at, but still win in the end. I'm not saying Flor's a warfreak, but if she knows she's right, she's going to fight for her beliefs. Even if it's her boyfriend she's having an argument with.

She was actually one half of one of the worst cat fights I've seen in the history of my life. Too bad, it wasn't physical.

BOX TYPE CAR
From what I remember, Flor is a daughter of a former model, and I think that's where she got her looks. Unfortunately, she didn't have the height to pursue that kind of career. The thing about her is that she doesn't let that get in the way of being a modern woman.

One of my fondest memories of Flor was when we weren't working anymore. One time I asked her to treat me out (which she never did... until now), so we went somewhere in Ortigas to have breakfast. She brought her ride which at that time I thought would be a very good candidate for the show 'Pimp My Ride.' It was an old box type car probably from the early 80's era, which in my opinion should've been banned by MMDA.

I heard that she's finally decided to replace her old car Ning Ning, with a newer one Vanni Avanzie. I can't really say anything about it, as it's been two years since I last saw her. Actually for two years, we worked in the same building, but only saw each other only about 5 or 6 times.

BUT IF SHE'S LIKE THAT...
Why stick with her, right? She's gnarly, overly competitive, she doesn't remember when my birthday is, and we don't really see each other anymore now that we're cities away.

See the thing is, she's my friend. Even if she's like that, I learned a lot of things from her about women. She always keeps my feet grounded. Flor always makes me laugh. And even if we don't work together anymore, she's one of a handful of people who kept me as a friend.

She's living proof of how two people, despite the distance and the absence from each other, could still keep a very good friendship.
I think it's only recently that we've been chatting quite regularly again. But still, it's like nothing's changed. I still throw in some quips about her being not gifted in the front and back, and she still gets back at me for still being single.

Six years, it's been that long since I first met her... And she still hasn't treated me out. But I'll never give up hope, all this waiting will eventually pay off, and it will be all worth it. One day she'll treat me out, for food or movie. It's not that I'm being a cheapskate, but she's earning WAY more than I am.
So yeah, I guess what I'm really trying to say here is that I miss this girl.

You haven't mentioned if Flor is single. Also, just tell her to put a lot of pics on her blog and I'll hit it everyday.
