I can still remember the first time I met Cierra Castro.
It was June 2006. We were college freshmen dormmates at New Dorm, University of the Philippines Los Banos. She was from room 302, while I was from 301.
It was the first time I’ve ever heard of such a name that I spelled it like Sierra – from the makers of Counter-Strike and Half Life 1.
After two years of studying BA Sociology in UPLB, she had to stop studying for more important reasons. (This post sounds so dramatic.) Our barkada was no longer complete by 2008 because many of us transferred to another school or got kicked-out from the university.
*insert sarcasm* We were a bunch of industrious and studious people, you see. *end*
Cierra has been waiting for this moment since she stopped studying and now, she’s on her way to experiencing her first (ever) airplane flight to Canada. Cierra will be working there for two years and eventually be a Fil-Can! 🙂
This was the reason why Pengyus (our barkada) got back together. Although we weren’t complete, we tried to make the best of it!
PENGYUS GOES TO ROCKWELL: CIERRA MEETS CANADA
I got there at 1 PM sharp and yet, they were all not there. I should have known! haha But at around 2 PM, we were complete. Cierra and Michael, Ecka and Erick, Kist with Joco and Mo!
We went to Sango for lunch and to catch up with each other’s lives.
Ecka and Cierra were known as the best friend “Twins.” They gadgets say so too.
One group picture! Pengyus 2011: “Anong nangyari samin?” haha
Cierra left for Canada last September 8, Thursday. She’s already there now. I wish her all the best! I believe she did a very brave thing for her family.
I still hope I get to see Cierra and the rest of the Pengyus again soon.
