When I got an invite to the Block Party (a weekend of art, food, and music at the Makiling Park of Ayala Alabang Village), I knew instantly our weekend will be relaxing and fun. It was a two-day event (March 28th and 29th) but we only went on the first day which was last Saturday. Since the hubby is currently enjoying his sem break from grad school, we drove to Bacoor on Friday night and went to the Block Party from our house the next day.
We got to the venue at past 12:00 p.m., just in time for lunch. It was a beautiful day but the sun was scorching hot. Good thing there were tables and chairs set up under the cool shades of trees. There were also mats with blankets and throw pillows scattered all over the place inviting people to lie down and relax. Cool music was also being played which added to the festive vibe in the park.

Recently, I’ve been obsessed about saving. Instead of spending my entire weekly allowance, I’d make it a point to save each week. Like last week, for instance, I saved a total of P565. Funny but I felt very accomplished as I counted the money left in my wallet one by one. Haha.
Spending and saving are broad topics. They have always been a part of discussions on money management and personal finance in general. We spend mindfully and sometimes, mindlessly. We, however, tend to forget about saving.
