The hubby and I were in Baguio on April 8-9. Through the kindness of the bosses of my PILs, we were able to stay at the Legarda Mansion there. The Legarda family has been trying to sell the property since the start of the year and my PILs sort of wanted to check it out for the last time. My FIL wasn’t able to join us, though, because he suddenly had something important to do. It was just the hubby, my SIL, my MIL, and me. It was a fun trip and despite my upset stomach, we were able to drive around Baguio with British to eat and shop.
Last weekend was hectic. We attended several events on Saturday: Hyundai’s National Car Wash Day at Hyundai Quezon Avenue, Manila International Auto Show (MAIS) 2017 at the World Trade Center, and Team Accent Philippines’ (TAP) members meet up at Vikings Mall of Asia (MOA). We also squeezed in a visit to the Uber offices in Taft Avenue Avenue and One-Ecom MOA, to submit the hubby’s requirements. Yes, he applied to be an Uber partner and got accepted. He will do it on a part-time basis and he’s already excited about his first trip, hahaha. On Sunday, we drove to Tagaytay to unwind before heading back to Manila that same day.
Below are some photos that describe our weekend:
Last weekend took the hubby and I (and my sister Jodie) from Manila to Bacoor and Batangas and back to Manila. Traveling is always fun, especially if there’s no traffic along the way to your destination. SLEX traffic was light to zero last Saturday so our trip to Sto. Tomas, Batangas where the St. Pio Shrine is located was a breeze. We found out that there’s now a second open-air chapel there that’s quite bigger than the old one. It must be the admin’s positive response to the growing number of visitors in the place. In Manila on Sunday, we attended the birthday party of the hubby’s guy cousin’s daughter at Jollibee-C3 in Caloocan City. He’s the one whose wedding we attended in this weekend story. Oh, how time flies! Now, their baby is one year old. Which reminds me, the hubby and I should try harder at getting pregnant, hahaha.
Here are some pics from our fun weekend:
Our fifth wedding anniversary called for a celebration and deserved a long weekend so the hubby and I both filed for a leave last Friday. We then checked into Acacia Hotel in Alabang for a staycation (just what we needed after an exhausting work week!). Acacia Hotel didn’t disappoint, from the room accommodation and hotel facilities to the friendly service and breakfast buffet. Everything was beyond what we expected so we ended up having an awesome overnight stay. The rest of our weekend was spent with family: malling with my in-laws on Saturday night and driving up to Antipolo to hear mass and having a family dinner at Robinsons Place Ermita on Sunday. It was a fun weekend and we are grateful for the happy memories created and shared.
Here are several photos depicting our weekend activities:
Last weekend, I was in Baguio for work. The hubby stayed in Manila at my in-laws’ place while I lucked out and got to spend a night at Baguio Country Club (BCC) with two of my officemates. We were there for the lunch event the President hosted for the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Salaknib Class of 2017 graduates and their families which was held at PMA’s Yap Hall right after the graduation rites at their grandstand. It was a happy occasion and I could feel the overflowing pride and gratitude among the guests.
Here are some photos I took during my short, work-related trip to Baguio:
With the arrival of our new car last Friday, we are back to paying monthly car amortizations starting April. I had mixed feelings about this as I initially wanted to use our old car as long as possible. But after understanding where the hubby was coming from, I gave in to his plea and went on to co-sign the car loan with him. Wives should listen to their husbands, sometimes, hahaha.
We sold our old car (thank you and goodbye, Nissen!) to buy a new one (hello and welcome, British!). It was another adult decision that we’ve both agreed to make. So help us God. Now we have a better car that could get us from point A to point B more comfortably and with greater efficiency. For one, it has automatic transmission. The car is now easier to drive for us. Also, it’s diesel, not gas, which implies cheaper fuel prices. Actually, based on the hubby’s thorough research, he found out the Hyundai Accent 2017 has more pro’s than con’s. It’s really just a matter of how the driver uses it, good practices, proper maintenance, and all.
