Weekend Story: Home After a While

As early as Friday night, the hubby and I were already in our marital home in Bacoor to spend the weekend there. Instead of using our own car, we brought my FIL’s car so the hubby could have it cleaned thoroughly (he said it’s called auto detailing) by his suking car wash shop. (It took them two days to finish cleaning the car.) Given the (car) situation, we decided to just stay home and slow down.

Lessons on Stock Market Investing, Vol. IV

Today marks my second year of investing directly in the Philippine stock market through COL Financial. So far, everything’s okay.

Last weekend was a mix of play and work. The hubby and I weren’t able to go home in Bacoor again because of our crazy schedule but it was okay. We try to spend time with family as much as possible.

Anyway, they got a great deal — PHP8,000 all-in for a good as new car air-con — from one of the repair shops there.

Weekend Story: Manila Staycation

No, the hubby and I didn’t literally stay in a local hotel last weekend for some R&R. We just stayed in Manila, period. Haha. We had some errands to attend to and it was a bed weather kind of weekend so instead of going home in Bacoor, we decided to be with our family for some quality time.

It was also my sister Jodie’s birthday last Saturday and she planned a family dinner the next day so we had to be there.
