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: Office Outing at Pico de Loro, Nasugbu, Batangas

After several postponements due to our crazy hectic sched at work, our office outing/team building/strategic planning workshop has finally pushed thru last weekend. The rainy season has officially begun but what the heck, we hit the beach like it was still summer. It was a good thing that the weather cooperated. The sun would peek through the clouds every now and then but it was predominantly gloomy and it rained just once (more like a quick rain shower!) during our overnight stay at Pico Sands Hotel, one of the structures inside the massive property that is Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club in Nasugbu, Batangas.

Weekend Story: Two Office Outings (His and Hers)

So, last week saw the hubby and me going to the beach for our respective office outings. Mine was in the South (Anilao, Mabini, Batangas) while his was in the North (Morong, Bataan). It was an overnight stay for both outings and I left a day earlier than he did. We would meet again on Saturday night and spend the rest of the weekend in Manila with our families.

It was my third time in Anilao and my second time at Vista Aplaya. It was a unanimous decision to go back to Anilao because the place was simply beautiful and quiet, just what we needed for our R&R.

Weekend Story: Good Times with Friends and Family

So, last weekend was quite busy. The hubby and I went to three different places in two days. Tiring but super fun! I cannot think of a better title for this post because we really did have good times with friends and family. And for that we are thankful.

On Friday night, the hubby and I joined my officemates in an overnight swimming at a private resort in Pansol, Calamba City. It was hosted by another officemate Kuya Rene who went there ahead of us. (Thanks again Sumalinog family for having us!) We ate, swam, and videoke’d the night away. The boys also drank a couple of beers while I settled for a few glasses of ice-cold Sprite. We slept at around 3AM of Saturday and woke up just before our checkout time of 8AM.

Weekend Story: At Home in Manila

The hubby and I have been missing our Bacoor home already. It’s been weeks that we haven’t visited it. I don’t know if the few plants in our plant box are still alive or not. I don’t know how our lone Malunggay tree is coping to the “dry” situation (though I have a feeling it will continue to thrive).

On a related note, our office clothes are of the same set. We just wash them during weekends for use in the next work week. Sorry, TMI. I don’t know if my officemates are already noticing my clothes, but what the heck. Haha. The good news is, we are going home tonight. Wohoo!
