Vicarious Sisters

One unwavering friendship. Two separate islands. 6,098 miles to be exact. One is single w/ the Angels. The other, domesticated in the Pacific. Numbers do not matter. But our love & loyalty for each other do. Welcome to the world of two girlfriends, spanning from Los Angeles to Guam.

"Maybe I can't stop the downpour, but I will always, always join you for a walk in the rain."

❤️❤️❤️ I must be doing something right.
And she’s the real reason why I went home to Cavite. My only surviving grandparent. The last time I saw her in 2012, she cried when she saw me. This year, it took Nanay Sayong a few minutes to process which grandchild I was. And that’s okay. I love her anyway.  (at Bucana, Naic, Cavite)
So glad I went home to my province even if it was only for 2 hours. I got to see my uncle Barry who happened to be on vacation as well. I have not seen him in 10 years. The last time was in Vegas. @brrrrrryan @jahmezyee #buhain #bucana #naic  (at Bucana, Naic, Cavite)
Every time starbucks has a new/seasonal drink, I have to try it. I give you the Chestnut Macchiato. By far, my favorite of the seasonal beverages.  (at Starbucks Coffee)
Dr. Hieu Campus treats 4 children who walked to our medical mission on their own. Their parents are busy working to put their lives back together. Big brother on the right led the way. Such a responsible young man already. #tacloban #medicalmission #survivors #bangonph #yolandaph #philippines #diit #guam  (at Tacloban City, Philippines)
At the #Tacloban Airport. Can you believe there’s already wifi again? Sign of progress. This city will bounce back. #philippines #yolandaph #taclobanairport #guam #bangonph  (at TAC Airport Runway)
Doctor Shieh named his patient’s child, “Baby Pacquiao.” #4dultrasound #babybacquiao #pacquiao #bangonph #yolanda #yolandaph #medicalmission #philippines #guam  (at M.A.S.A. Office)
Meet baby John Mark. He was born on November 8, 2013. The day that typhoon #Yolanda arrived in #Tacloban. #bangonph #yolandaph #philippines #medicalmission #guam  (at M.A.S.A. Office)
The ships that washed ashore decimated homes in its path. You can’t tell but most of them are now underneath the ship. The homes that you see we’re rebuilt after the typhoon. The sign explains it very well. #yolandaph #tacloban #shipwreck #bangonph #medicalmission #guam  (at Tacloban City)
One of five ships that washed shore in #Tacloban. Dozens of dead bodies were found in this area. Though they have since been removed, the stench lingers. #shipwreck #philippines #bangonph #yolandaph #medicalmission #haiyan  (at Tacloban City)
