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.

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.

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:

I was in Baguio last Friday and Saturday for work and so the hubby and I only got to drive home in Bacoor on Saturday night after I arrived in Manila from Baguio. We spent the rest of the weekend just taking some rest and finishing some errands.
Our event in Baguio was a success (thank God!). It was super cold there during our visit (we were a group of five). Balita ko umabot pa ng 8 degrees Celsius nung madaling araw ng Sabado, buti na lang tulog pa ako nun at nakabalot ng comforter sa hotel, hahaha. But I enjoyed Baguio so much I wanted to go back this summer!

One of the perks of staying in our Bacoor home during weekends is we get to practice being husband and wife. You know, just the two of us doing things together. Having house guests, however, has its own advantages. Like when my in-laws join us in Bacoor, for instance, and life suddenly becomes easier. You see, my MIL is very fond of doing household chores. Whenever she’s visiting us, she wouldn’t stop until she sees the whole house spick and span. Actually, she hates clutter so much that when she was still working at the restaurant, she would spend her days off staying at home and just cleaning up their house. She gets satisfied and happy doing just that. Now that she’s semi-retired, she still does a lot of cleaning (at their place here in Manila and at ours in Bacoor). I hope I inherit her “kasipagan” one day. Haha.
