Last long weekend can be aptly called the Papal weekend. The apostolic visit of Pope Francis to the Philippines was phenomenal, a once in a lifetime opportunity that’s filled with happy memories for our country and our people.
On Saturday night, the hubby and I fetched my in-laws at Mall of Asia (MOA). After that, we had a quick dinner at Solaire’s food court upon my recommendation. It was their first time there and I was glad they liked the food. Except for that meetup, we hadn’t left the house and were just glued to the TV screen all throughout that memorable weekend.
We have watched most, if not all, Papal activities until his departure for Rome on Monday morning. My PILs were such Pope Francis fanatics that they would pose for a picture with him on TV whenever there was a chance. So funny and game of them. Haha.
Instead of going to the church on Sunday, we just watched the live telecast of the mass at Quirino Grandstand.
My MIL was kind enough to do all the cooking during their stay, to my relief. It’s always difficult for me to go on a diet whenever MIL’s at home because she cooks well. During their visit, she whipped up pork adobo, pork sinigang, and grilled fish which were all my favorite dishes! Good thing I paired everything with brown rice which made me less guilty over eating more than I should have.
Did I mention that MIL brought so much food from Manila for all of us? Like this peanut butter and grape jelly that I couldn’t resist!
OMG talaga, andami ko nakain last weekend! Paano naman kaya, kain-tulog lang ang ginawa namin ni Edwin. Haha.
We all went back to Manila on Monday afternoon, restful and happy and ready to face a new workweek.
Ikaw, anong weekend story mo?
