Weekend Story: Surprise Visit, Food Trip, and Lotsa Talking

Last weekend was terrific and extra fun. My mom and my cousin Ate Hazel joined the hubby and me for the weekend at our Bacoor home. We did a lot of eating and talking. We also paid a surprise visit to an uncle whom we hadn’t seen for a long time.

I think the hubby and I are having a great time welcoming guests to our humble abode. Financially speaking, it translates to additional expenses, but the happy memories we create with these wonderful people are definitely worth it. Not only do we get to strengthen our ties with our family and friends, but we also learn and experience new things with them that make us appreciate our married life better. It’s actually a win-win situation for us.

With respect to the surprise visit, I just realized I didn’t even have a single photo of our trip to my uncle’s house in DasmariƱas, Cavite. It was a sort of picnic because we brought food there: my homecooked pasta and Andok’s lechon manok, yema cake and soft drinks which we bought from the roadside stores.

What I do have are pictures of our food trip in Alabang:

BBB’s cheeseburger was yummy!

We loved the BBB burgers! They were tasty, juicy and had a fantastic char-grilled flavor. They were quite affordable, too.

We fetched my cousin at ATC on Saturday night and that was where we dropped her off on Sunday afternoon. She said she’ll visit my parents and siblings in Manila next month and that’s something to look forward to.

Another highlight of my week was having the time to read again (the e-book kind). I’m currently on “Why Men Marry Bitches” and enjoying learning about relationship principles. The book is an interesting read, but I think it’s primarily written for women dating Western men. At least, I can relate to some of the situations mentioned there. Haha.

We went back to Manila on Sunday night because the hubby wanted to watch the Gilas game at 2:00 am the next day but didn’t want to lack sleep because we normally drive back to Manila early morning. Traffic was almost non-existent on our way to Manila that I suddenly requested for a Family Mart stop over so my mom could try the twirl-all-you-can with us.

There, that’s how my weekend started and ended! Now, it’s back to work.

September has arrived, the start of the -ber months. I can smell Christmas in the air already! :)

May you choose happiness always,

    OMG!!! I love BBB burgers din! I remembered every payday in Northgate Alabang, dun ang tambayan namin. I like their wedges too!! Namimiss ko na nga! Since I worked here in Makati, I never had the chance to buy BBB na eh. =(

      Grabe noh, sarap talaga! Dadalhin ko nga yung sister ko na mahilig sa burgers doon. Try ko yung potato wedges nila next time. :)

  2. There are times I feel guilty spending money on something like eating out but doing this once in a while and keeping memories like this is all worth the costs.

    iba talaga ang pag spend ng time with our families noh? although magastos, ok lang kasi bonding naman at masaya.
