My friend Ate Jane who went home to the Philippines from Saudi Arabia to have a wedding invited me as abay. Abay in Ilocano means being a part of the entourage (especially groomsmen and bridesmaids). The motif was green. They gave us the tops. I wore green sneakers too and I think I did not murder the event.
I was comfortable, really. I believe it’s the era of “being yourself” as long as you don’t offend or hurt anyone.
Congratulations ate Jane! You’ve finally lost your singlehood 2 years before you turned 40. I believe the best things in life happens when you least expect it. Best wishes!
