Yesterday, the hubby and I, along with my superfriend Nice and my good friend Melay, went on a road trip all the way to Obando, Bulacan. It was Mama Mary’s birthday yesterday and my three religious companions wanted to visit a church we haven’t visited yet as a way of celebrating this holy occasion. We left our Bacoor home at 7am and we were glad to make it just in time for the 9am mass.
The drive to Obando Church (also known as San Pascual Baylon Parish) was long and tiring but it was super worth it. Coming from Cavite, after EDSA and Monumento in Caloocan, you have to drive past Samson Road and turn right at M.H. del Pilar St. all the way to Polo Plaza and from there, the church is only a few kilometers away.
I couldn’t believe the hubby and I even got to do the famous Obando dance (albeit the short version) right after mass! We joined a few more couples and did the fertility rites while our two crazy girl friends took a video of everything. It was a memorable experience for us. The hubby and I, though we don’t have fertility problems, would surely benefit from it. We actually plan to get pregnant again next year, if God permits.
After our Obando road trip, we headed to Maginhawa St. in UP Diliman and had a delicious and affordable lunch at Crazy Katsu. We highly recommend their tonkatsu and katsudon, so good! Then we all decided to part and go home to take some rest. We still had the rest of the afternoon, after all.
