“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said ‘I’m here for you’ and stayed.” This is the caption Alexa Ilacad wrote on one of her many Instagram post featuring bestie Eunice Jorge.
Ever since she was a kid Alexa has felt that lady luck was not on her side when it comes to making friends. Much like many who went through high school, she has been backstabbed and lost so-called friends along the way. Fortunately, her prayers seem to have finally been answered. “She is my bestest, bestest friend in the world and I call her God’s gift,” said the young actress on Tonight with Boy Abunda.
The two met through music. Eunice is the lead singer of band Gracenote. The front woman wrote all the songs for Alexa’s album, “To the Moon & Back”. It was then that they were able to start a special friendship.
“Bitbit po niya ako everywhere,” said Alexa. They watched the Lion King musical together with twinning shoes and sang along to “Hakuna Matata”. The ladies also posted covers of “IDGAF” by Dua Lipa. Aside from music, they also bond over hair days and Disney on Ice. As well as some concerts, although sometimes they’ve the ones performing.
It’s true that Alexa has met her soulmate, not the romantic kind, but still a partner in life that will stand by her no matter what.
