Because the hubby and I were in Bohol when Mother’s Day came, I asked Mame (who dragged my sister Jodie along) to join us for the weekend in Bacoor so I could take her on a date, a post Mother’s Day celebration of sorts. We didn’t do anything grand, we just drove around and dined out at some of Mame’s fave restos (yung mga namiss nya daw kainan!). We reached Bacoor on Saturday afternoon and spent the night there. We then went to Solenad in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna on Sunday morning before going home in Manila that same day. Mame made us laugh a lot again with her unique sense of humor and before we knew it, the weekend was over.
Last weekend was spent in Bohol for a short vacation. My PILs flew to Bohol ahead of us so when we arrived there, their house in San Isidro (my MIL’s hometown) was spick and span already and we just needed to lie down and rest. We stayed in Bohol for 6D5N and our time was very sulit. We touched base with our relatives and friends there, we joined the festivities (the town fiesta was last May 15th), we checked out the malls in Tagbilaran and Tubigon (where I tried different ice cream flavors from the Buzz Cafe of Bohol Bee Farm), we went to my MIL’s farm, we procrastinated, we laughed, and we ate a loooooot (read: fiesta). We also booked an overnight stay at Henann Resort in Panglao Island which is arguably the biggest and the newest resort in Bohol right now (loved the massive swimming pools with bars and the festive vibe there!).
It was a super fun trip and we never wanted it to end. But as they say, good things don’t last so we’re now back in the Manila to work and save up money so we could fly to Bohol again next year. As for my PILs, they get a month-long paid vacation every year from their employer which they ALWAYS spend in Bohol. Lucky them!
Last weekend was all about Subic and the car club that the hubby wanted to be part of, Team Accent Philippines (TAP). We woke up early on Saturday morning and drove to Harbor Point in Subic, Zambales where the meet up was. We mingled with the TAP people there who were quite nice and friendly (as we expected). The good news is that the hubby finally got accepted as an official TAP member and as a symbol of it, he was allowed to buy the official car sticker of the group. Plus, of course, our overnight stay in Bacoor (we drove there straight from Subic) to check out our home sweet home and do some cleaning there. It was a fun weekend overall and despite the summer heat, we were able to get as much rest as we could. Now, we’re back to the daily grind here in Manila.

I was swamped with work the entire month of April. Actually, I was crazy busy in the office even before that time. We were handling five big events and my officemates and I were really having a hard time managing our time. Like it was beyond-what-our-human-bodies-could-take kind of thing already. There was just so much to do with so little time and energy from our part. We prepared early but it seemed all our preparations weren’t enough. After publishing my first weekend story for the month, I couldn’t get myself to publish the next ones so I decided to just publish them all in one go today. Yes, only today when I’m as free as a bird again, work wise.
Last weekend flew by quickly. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Saturday morning only to be advised by my boss that I had to go back to Manila the next day for a short notice, work-related meeting at PICC. I badly needed to rest but the said meeting was crucial in discharging my tasks for our upcoming events so off I went. I told myself to make bawi na lang once all of our five ASEAN-related events are over and done with. Despite my crazy sched that weekend, the hubby and I were able to squeeze in attending the anticipated mass at this new church in Las Piñas and a meetup with Team Accent Philippines (TAP a.k.a the car group he wants to be part of).
Our Holy Week this year was spent with family. The hubby and I, along with Mame and my sister Jodie, did Visita Iglesia in Cavite on Maundy Thursday. We started with our neighborhood church in Bacoor (first) and for our final church (seventh), this new church discovery of ours in Tagaytay known locally as the Peach Sisters Chapel. We then met up with the rest of the family at Water Camp in Kawit for swimming. We had loads of fun and rest which are what we look forward to every year whenever the Holy Week season is here.
