Birds NOT On The Same Feather, Still Flocks Together

Meet the Wakwak Society

These are my barkadas in my nursing years at Lourdes College. All of us are second-coursers. But sometimes, I cannot help but wonder why we became friends for we have different and extreme ‘personalities’. Well, let me describe them to you.

Reanne or yanni – astig, brutally frank and highly intellectual. Punctuality is sacred to her – ug tanan mi nakapiso sa iya kay sige man gaka late sa sabot. Since she always assumed responsibility to our group, she became our El Presidente in *Wakwak Society. She now resides in Canada yet she still keeps in touch.

Then there’s Nacky the wacky. She’s the clown of the group but inside, she’s very sentimental. She easily cries, he, he, and gets paranoid to people who are annoying. She’s currently a Clinical Instructor at Lourdes College, Nursing Department. Julie – the happy go lucky gal. School pressures don’t seem to bother her. And she can easily find a way out in every problem. In other words, sinisuerte, duh! Sometimes, I wish I’m as lucky as Julie.

Then there’s Joy or Joyax. She’s humorous and her laughter is contagious, however, she worries a lot. But it was really nice hanging out with her especially if you have no money coz she would take care of it, o divah bongga?. Next is Pamela or Mimi/Manang/Imyat, she thinks she’s a goddess, HA, HA, maygani kay angayan pod. I’ve known her since high school; we were classmates at Corpus Christi. Born with silver spoon in her mouth and tagged as maldita, you’d be amazed of her simplicity and never showing off her expensive stuffs and gems. She said she’s a chatterbox – at least honest sya no?

Nurses NOT on duty

And of course there’s Bersai. Never underestimate her height coz she could give you a kick in the ass. She has a very big heart, too. She’s smart, cool, frank and a friend who could really keep a secret. She’s now in California. Me? Perhaps…unpredictable? hehehe.. I’m sensitive, observant, and friendly to those who are nice to me but never forgiving to my nemesis, hehehe…I’m a friend you could count on. And I’m still living here at Land of Bondage, Land of the Free…

* Wakwak Society is the name of our group. It is a visayan word for witches. As we all know, witches can easily smell or detect something. Well, any news that comes up, the Wakwaks knew it right away :)

Having somebody articulate how a group of extreme "personalitied" gals is treasured dearly is more than touching. Who would have thought that the most private member of the Society would be the most eloquent in expressing her appreciation to the rest of the members? Indeed, silent river runs deep.

I have said this before, and I'll say it once more. Thank you for the friendship. Thank you for not letting your intimidation towards me keep us from being friends. Thank you for simply being you.

Love your composition i wish i could write like that but you know im not that confident enough to write or post blogs coz Yanni might put a lot of red marks on it heheheh. Good thing she's not my english teacher or else i'll get an F ;)

We may be a group of extreme's but i do believed we have a little bit or i'll say traces of personality from each one of us that's why we bonded somehow... you see, when i read your blog i got a little bit senti and that's so nacky... there are times i become so bubbly and that's so goddess... when im angry im as astig as Yanni... when im worried of something that's so Joy... and when i'm in my happy go lucky mood that is so Julie... and most of the time just being quiet just like YOU... quiet kuno... wait lang sila hehehehe.

miss you guys...

Bersai the gud girl


pls. post more pixes of us in school or after grad parties so i can copy it. thanks.

Kung dili ko astig; "hi-man" kaau ko. Pastilan, kaluoy naman lang jud nko ani. Mura ra jud akoy "hi-man". Gisulti na bitaw ni Kukai na ang WAKWAK, to quote, "As we all know, witches can easily smell or detect something. Well, any news that comes up, the Wakwaks knew it right away".

El Presidente
