Weekend Story: New Food Finds + Velenica’s Kitchen in Kawit, Cavite

Last weekend was all about eating. Kaya palaki na ako ng palaki, eh! Wala, ang sarap talaga kumain lalo na pag weekend, hahaha. The hubby and I, along with my SIL Albie, drove home in Bacoor on Saturday and went back to Manila on Sunday afternoon. We just ate and ate, and slept, of course. If you’d ask me, I’d say it was a happy weekend even if our eating made us gain more unwanted pounds.

Weekend Story: 6th Wedding Anniversary Celebration (a.k.a. Our Palawan Trip)

The hubby and I both self-declared a long weekend last weekend. Justified naman because it was a milestone in our married life, hehe. March 17th, which fell on a Saturday this year, was our 6th wedding anniversary. So, we decided to spend it on a trip to a place we hadn’t been to yet. I suggested Puerto Princesa City (PPC) in Palawan and the hubby said yes in a jiffy. He said he wanted to experience the marvelous underground river tour the place is famous for. I, on the other hand, wanted the same and more.

So, I immediately booked our tickets and accommodation for a 4D3N vacation (March 15-18, 2018) at PPC which, we would later find out, is known as the “city in a forest.” We even had some company during the trip courtesy of Mame, my MIL, and my balikbayan aunt Laura. Gusto raw nila sumama, eh madali naman kami kausap, kaya go! Totoo naman pala talaga na maganda at malinis sa Puerto Princesa! Nakakatuwa at nakakamangha rin na napapaligiran ng mga puno at berdeng berde ang kapaligiran doon!

Weekend Story: Quiet Time in Bacoor + Quick Trip to Batangas

Last weekend was quiet and quick. Haha. We spent as early as Friday night in Bacoor and dedicated much of our time watching Suits (our current fave TV series) on Netflix, eating, cuddling, and doing household chores. We went to the mall on Saturday afternoon to do some grocery shopping and pick up some summer-related stuff. On Sunday, we made a quick trip to Batangas to hear the 9:30AM mass at Lipa Cathedral in Lipa City before driving to the next town, Mataas na Kahoy, to attend the christening of my officemate’s second baby (the first one is my godchild!). From there, we went straight home in Manila and even got to do some malling at Robinsons Place Manila with my in-laws before calling it a day.

Weekend Story: Suits Marathon + St. Pio Shrine in Sto. Tomas, Batangas

Last weekend was spent in Bacoor and Manila, as usual. We were already in Bacoor as early as Friday night this time, though. On Saturday morning, the hubby and I watched several episodes of Suits, a US TV series about this genius albeit fake lawyer Mike Ross. We just love it, from the story to the stellar cast. Somehow, it reminds me of my childhood dream of being a lawyer. If you want to know how the US justice system works and how law firms do their business, then this is the show for you. I don’t know with you but I always have a great time watching Mike Ross and Harvey Specter (Ross’s boss) work together on a case, with Mike Ross almost always figuring out something to win it. Their everyday banter is cute, too. We can’t wait to get to the final season (Season 7)!

The hubby and I also went out on Saturday night. Chosen place was Alabang Town Center. We initially wanted to watch a movie but decided against it because the hubby remembered we had to sleep early for our trip to St. Pio Shrine in Batangas the next day. On Sunday morning, we drove to Sto. Tomas, Batangas to hear the 8:30AM mass at St. Pio Shrine. A lot has changed on the place. There are now ample parking spaces and new structures in the complex. The hubby also noticed that they use solar power which was great. From the shrine, we drove straight to my in-laws’ place in Manila, rested a bit, and prepared for the new work week.

Weekend Story: Vaccine Time for Our New Pet + Quiet Time in Bacoor

Last weekend was laidback. On Saturday, we took our new pet Jasper to the dog clinic for his second shot of the 5-in-1 vaccine for pups. He was generally behaved during our visit despite the long wait (7:30am in, 2:30pm out) and the hot weather. He played and made friends with the other doggies and even got to take a power nap while waiting for his turn. He was also cool when the nurse vaccinated him. He really lived up to his monicker of Jasper, the friendly dog. Haha. On Saturday night, the hubby and I went home and stayed there until Sunday night to do some chores and to have some quiet time.

Weekend Story: 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary of Our Bosses + Sunday Pasyal

Last weekend was a time to dress up and look good. Why? Because it was both an honor and a privilege for my in-laws, the hubby, and me to be invited to the 50th golden wedding anniversary celebration of our beloved Legarda bosses. The thanksgiving mass, followed by cocktails and dinner, was held at the Manila Polo Club. The event was intimate and fun at the same time. On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with my in-laws and my parents, made an impromptu trip to this condo project in Las PiƱas where the showroom of the condo project we’re eyeing is located. We just wanted to show the model units to the elders so we could find out if they approve of it or not. Well, judging by the way they looked at the place, it seemed to us that they liked it. Haha.
