Last Christmas was celebrated at our family home in Naic, Cavite. The hubby and I joined my side of the family there for the much-awaited birthday of Jesus Christ. Our Noche Buena feast consisted of traditional fares like Pinoy spaghetti, roasted chicken (courtesy of Sr. Pedro this time for my convenience, haha), pork BBQ, puto flan, bread, fruit salad, and of course, ham and queso de bola. It was the same Christmas menu that’s always a hit with our family. Simple but delicious and oh so comforting. Burp! We also did a photo shoot which has been a family tradition ever since we celebrated Christmas in Naic five years ago (if I’m not mistaken).
Last long weekend was festive and chilly at the same time. Signal no. 2 ang bagyo samin sa Cavite. Mahina ang ulan pero medyo malakas ang hangin. Pahinto-hinto rin ang ulan kaya di naman masyado nakaapekto sa masayang mood ng mga tao. As agreed upon after we got married, the hubby and I spent Christmas with my side of the family in our family home in Naic. On Christmas Day, we drove home in Bacoor together with my three siblings so we could all go back to Manila on the 26th.
Here are some photos to describe our fun Christmas weekend:

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:
Two things that marked the past weekend for the hubby and me: a shopping trip and a birthday party.
On Saturday, we went to Landmark Makati with my MIL and my SIL to look for ready-made long gowns. We are attending a wedding next month and the dress code says “formal.” Like black tie and long gown kind of formal. I am used to wearing short dresses during weddings so this is going to be a new experience for me. Nakakapagsuot naman ako ng long gown sa work pero laging black. Tingnan natin kung kayanin ng powers ko ang magsuot ng long gown na hindi black bilang kasal ito. Haha.
Last weekend was super fun. Well, scratch that. The fun only happened on Saturday because we had a family outing. Sunday was a different ballgame. I had to go to work and though I was quite productive, lazing away on a Sunday is still waaaaaay better. Haha.
So, we went home in Bacoor with my in-laws on Friday night. The next day, Saturday, we woke up early, packed our things and drove to Kalipayan Hotel and Resort in Dasmariñas, Cavite. We got there at 7am-ish. After paying our entrance fees (P200 per head) and renting the same kubo (P600, good for 12 persons) that we stayed in during our previous visit last Holy Week, we started unpacking our stuff.
Today is gonna be a great day for the fiancee. Hours from now, we will be going to the developer’s office to get the move-in documents for his new house in Cavite. The last time we checked out the place, we did a thorough inspection of the unit in the presence of the property manager. Luckily, there was not much to report except for a few cement and paint stains here and there.
The next step to all of this is the move-in. Did I mention that the house has its own water and electricity already? As early as now, the fiancee has started canvassing for light fixtures to install in the house. Some home improvement projects are in place, too. It’s gonna be costly for sure, but it seems he had prepared for that a long time ago. Good for him. Haha.
