Last weekend, the hubby and I continued with our Christmas shopping. Little purchases here and there in the past weekends and before we knew it, we were able to complete all we needed to buy for ourselves this Christmas, including our gifts for each other. As usual, family members wanted cash gifts instead of actual presents and so those were what they got. The good thing about this is I have a feeling we’ll have a stress-free holiday come December 25th. The sad thing about this is there’s no longer a Landmark Makati Christmas shopping with my girls to look forward to this month like in the past years. Sila rin naman kasi nagsipag-shopping na rin nung mga nakaraang linggo, kami rin nga yung magkakasama lol, kaya halos nabili na rin ang lahat ng kailangan nila.
The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night along with my SIL Albie. Then we went out on Saturday afternoon to shop in Alabang while Albie commuted back to Manila because she wanted to spend the rest of the weekend with my PILs. We stayed in Bacoor until Sunday afternoon and met with my in-laws at night to have dinner and do more shopping at our fave mall, SM Manila, haha.

I dream of the time when I can date my siblings and parents once a week. Like on a regular basis. I don’t have a problem on that with my husband because we are together almost 24/7. I know that when we get old and gray, we’ll have all the time in the world to spend together.
I am happier when I get to spend time with family during weekends. Last weekend, for instance, the hubby and I got to be with our parents (all four of them) on Sunday. We had lunch with my parents and had dinner with his. Then we spent Saturday meeting up with his car club mates (from Team Accent Philippines) and staying in our Bacoor home. We even got to squeeze in a quick visit to Baclaran church to pray and light some candles before going back to Manila on Sunday night.

Last weekend was busy. The hubby and I slept in our Bacoor home on Friday night with my brother Dan and drove to Sta. Rosa, Laguna the next day. We went to Paseo for some shoe shopping (only the two boys) and then to Nuvali to check out the magical field of lights there, the newest Christmas attraction in the area. (If you plan to visit it also, prepare yourself for a long walk and a huge crowd especially if it’s a weekend.) We were back in Manila that same night. On Sunday, the hubby and I were joined by Mame and my sister Jodie at Circuit Makati, Century City Mall, and Buendia Food by the Court to shop, see a movie, and of course, eat. Pagod at pawisan pero masaya at busog na naman ang weekend namin, haha.

For last weekend, the hubby suddenly decided to drive to Tagaytay on a Sunday morning right after we went to church to hear mass. My mind was preoccupied with work (i.e. ASEAN-related events) that I just said yes without thinking. Before I knew it, I was already staring at the beautiful Taal Lake and wolfing down some burger and rice meals at Mushroomburger. It was a fun trip which I would like to do every now and then as I want to try as much restaurants and attractions in Tagaytay as I can given our free time and of course, budget.

Last weekend was a great time to rest and relax. We went out to brave the heavy traffic on Friday night, though, and traveled all the way to Alabang from Manila to eat delicious ramen with friends. Ramen Yushoken made me eat pork! I just couldn’t resist their tantanmen and gyoza. Sinulit ko na ang cheat day ko, hahaha. The rest of the weekend, the hubby and I were just cozying up together in the bed tinkering with our phones because it was the next best thing to do aside from doing nothing. We only went out to hear the mass and go to the wet market on Sunday before driving back to Manila in the afternoon that same day.

Last weekend was festive and fun because of the annual celebration of the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel in our barangay here in Manila. We drove to Bacoor on Friday night and got back to Manila on Saturday evening. On Sunday, we had a family lunch and we were joined by our only guest, my PILs’ boss Don Ramon Legarda. This year’s fiesta was a joint celebration for our family as we also celebrated the 5th year in heaven of our little angel Pippo. The rest of the weekend was spent doing household chores, picking up items from the supermarket, and watching Netflix movies. Thank God for weekends talaga!
