Last long weekend was fun. On Friday, my younger sister Jodie treated the entire family to a hearty lunch because she has recently been promoted at work. The hubby and I then drove to Bacoor at night and spent the whole Saturday there. We got back to Manila early morning of Sunday because I had a fun run to attend. (The last I joined one was eons ago.) The rest of the morning was spent sleeping at my PILs’ place dahil napagod ako sa paglakad-takbo, hahaha.
In the afternoon of Sunday, the hubby and I, along with Mame and my brother Dan went to SM Manila to shop, eat, and watch a movie. Love You to the Stars and Back was a nice film. I appreciated how it was light and compelling at the same time. No wonder it’s been receiving good reviews online. Anyway, SM Manila was jampacked with people that time because it was the final day of the 3-day mallwide sale. I was able to score four dresses whose prices were all under P500. Not bad, ayt?

Last weekend was spent with my in-laws in Bacoor. The hubby and I, along with my PILs, drove there on Friday night and my SIL followed the next day. We went out on Saturday to go to the mall and purchase a new ref because the old one we were using, which we borrowed only from my PILs, has decided to retire after 20+ years. (The new appliance will be delivered to our house this coming Saturday.) On Sunday, we went out again to go to the church in the morning and drove back to Manila in the afternoon. We dropped by SM Manila before going home because my PILs needed to buy some supplies.
I know this sounds cliche, but among the many things that matter, family really comes on top. For me, it’s always a joy to be with them physically so I can imagine the sadness and sacrifice of those who need to be away from their families for a long time due to economic reasons. I wish for the day when all families are living simple but happy lives together. Not necessarily together all the time, but you know, making an effort to spend more time to be together despite the busyness and complexity of the life we live in this digital world.

CoCo Tea PH’s fresh teas and juices
Last night, I attended their Summer On-The-Go event that celebrated the soft launch of their SM City Manila store, their 5th branch in the Philippines. (I heard they first arrived here in 2013.) It was an evening filled with fun and excitement as people shared about their summer plans and eventually pledged for a better lifestyle. Who doesn’t want one, anyway? I, personally, am aiming for a more active and healthier lifestyle this 2015. And what better way to strengthen my commitment to that goal than to try drinking healthy, starting with CoCo’s interesting product line of teas and juices made from the freshest and the highest quality ingredients!
