Last weekend was spent on a road trip. The hubby and I were with my parents. First, we traveled to San Jose City in Nueva Ecija on Saturday to visit Ate Laura, our balikbayan relative (my father’s first cousin and my mother’s BFF, to be exact). We stayed there overnight to join their fiesta celebration the next day. From San Jose, we went straight to Meycauayan, Bulacan to attend the christening of my newest godchild, baby Marcus Jacob. Humabol na lang kami sa reception kasi 1PM na kami nakaalis ng San Jose kasama si Ate Laura na makikituloy muna sa apartment ng mga kapatid ko para makapasyal naman dito sa Maynila.
Last weekend passed by quickly. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, attended the christening and first birthday of my newest godchild Maria Justine Riley somewhere in Quezon City. (She’s the daughter of my childhood friend Jenalin.) We drove straight to Bacoor after the event.
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.
I only have a few godchildren. I’m not a “mabentang Ninang” like some people I know. But last Saturday, the universe conspired and made me a godmother again. Meet Eliana Jermaine, my newest godchild! She’s the daughter of my officemate Jerry and she was baptized at the Our Lady of Assumption Church in Malate, Manila. Isn’t she a cutie?
After my godmother duty, the hubby and I already drove home in Bacoor. That night, we watched this movie titled “The Maze Runner” on TV via USB. It’s a good movie with powerful acting and unpredictable plot. We enjoyed it so much we’re already looking forward to the next installment. I heard it’s a trilogy and the second movie will be released September of next year.
