I didn’t expect that last weekend would be a crazy busy long one. Of course, I looked forward to the holiday which gave me an extra day to enjoy. But the summer heat was unforgiving and the hubby and I were out almost the entire long weekend doing things for ourselves, our family, and our friends. It was a hectic schedule but thank God we managed to do everything and still had fun in the process.
On Friday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, attended the christening of my newest godchild baby Yñigo Paulo, the son of my first cousin Mark. It was held at 11AM at the peaceful St. Arnold Janssen Shrine in Taytay, Rizal. Reception followed at Tender Joe’s Rancho Grill located beside a gas station along the highway, just a few blocks from the shrine.
While I don’t shop a lot (you might wanna read about my successful 11-month long shopping fast last year), I have this special shopping list in my head containing several “wanted” items. I have sworn to myself that I would not look for these stuff. If I’d see one accidentally, I’d buy it immediately (provided I also have money at the time). No questions asked. It’s like destiny, with the item and I being meant for each other.
Such was the case with this black business dress by SM Woman.

Getting to Bacoor on a Friday night has been our routine the past weekends. The hubby and I are enjoying his break at graduate school while it lasts. Last weekend was no exception. We left Manila at past 8PM (to avoid traffic) and reached Bacoor in less than an hour.
It was great to see our home again despite the massive amount of dust covering our tiny balcony. I heard it came from the ongoing construction at the new village next to ours. No biggie as it was something the hubby wouldn’t mind cleaning up the next day.
