    – Hey, Iris! It was great seeing you again! Couldn’t beeilve how much Kim has grown. Sayang we didn’t get to see Erwin and Mito too. You and Erwin were our very first engagement shoot, and our first wedding ever. Hard to beeilve it’s been 2 years, but at the same time yes, I can. That probably doesn’t make any sense. Haha. So much has happened since. Hope you guys are doing great, and thanks for dropping by the blog again!May 21, 2010 6:48 pm
