Last weekend was simple and ordinary. We were with my in-laws in Bacoor and we spent time together doing things like watching TV, washing the dishes, doing the laundry, chatting, laughing about trivial stuff, and of course, eating. Bonding with my in-laws also included going out to visit the mall and buy stuff and again, eat! I therefore conclude that aside from having much-needed rest and spending time with our loved ones, weekends are for things that do not require much focus and thought. Love it! Haha.
Last long weekend was filled with happy memories. The hubby and I went home in Bacoor as early as Friday night. When Saturday afternoon came, my in-laws followed us there. After they had taken some rest, we hit the road to visit the grave of my FIL’s brother at the cemetery, also in Bacoor. On Sunday, we stayed home to bond as a family and in the evening, went to church to hear mass and visited Evia Lifestyle Center (ELC) for dinner and some malling.
We went back to Manila on Monday afternoon. We visited our angel son’s niche and rested a bit. Then the Techos and the Mabalays, along with my aunt and my cousin from Laguna, went to Robinsons Place Manila (RPM) to celebrate my father’s birthday through a simple dinner. He just turned 60, which means he’s now a dual citizen (Filipino and senior), hahaha.
Last weekend was spent with family. The hubby and I biked to Mall of Asia (MOA) on Saturday morning and drove to Bacoor in the afternoon with my in-laws, Mame, and my sister Jodie. We ate, slept, chatted, watched TV, surfed online, and laughed a lot. We also did some household chores because that’s what’s bound to happen when moms (two in our case!) are around. Haha. We went back to Manila on Sunday afternoon to prepare ourselves for the coming work week.
Here are some photos from our happy and fun weekend in chronological order:
Last weekend was spent bonding with family. Mame and my two sisters joined the hubby and I for the weekend. We drove to Bacoor on Saturday night after attending the 6PM anticipated mass at St. Michael the Archangel Shrine. We got caught in heavy traffic along Macapagal Blvd. We were starving when we got to Bacoor so we stopped by Ume-ya, our fave Japanese resto for a late dinner.
On Sunday, we woke up early to get ready for our family road trip to Sta. Rosa City in Laguna. My sister Jodie wanted to check out the bustling Paseo de Sta. Rosa and Nuvali commercial centers there. It was actually her first time to visit these places.
Last weekend was epic. I had lots of fun and laughter and shared stories and happy memories with the people that matter to me. How I wish this long holiday break won’t end so I’d have the luxury of time to meet up with more people!
On Saturday, I attended two Christmas get-togethers — one with my college friends and the other with my former office colleagues. Both were fun and memorable. I really had a great time.
The hubby went on a field trip slash bonding activity with his masteral group last weekend. It was a 2D 1N kind of event so we weren’t able to go home in Bacoor. I was left in Manila at my PILs’ place the entire weekend until the hubby got back from Subic on Sunday night.
Since the place where my siblings (and parents) currently reside in is just across the street from my PILs’ house, I spent most of my Saturday there. I was able to eat less, too, primarily because I didn’t have the hubby with me. But no, it wasn’t because I got emotional and missed him terribly (though I have to admit I missed him a bit!), it was just that he has a big appetite and he tends to influence me to overeat. Haha.
