Last weekend was spent with family and friends (our usual routine). The hubby and I actually had a long one because we took a leave from work on Friday to attend the wedding of our friend Leisette in Pasig. We would then drive home in Bacoor on Saturday afternoon with my parents and my sister Jodie who was celebrating her birthday the next day. That night, we heard the anticipated mass at Madonna del Amore Parish and went straight to Evia Lifestyle Center after. We then treated our house guests to Chinese food for dinner at Hap Chan. Jodie’s birthday salubong happened inside the moviehouse where we watched Spiderman Homecoming in 4D (her treat!). We returned to Manila on Sunday night where we met up with the rest of the fam bam at Okada Manila to watch the dancing fountain there. It was another weekend to remember and be grateful for!
Last weekend was spent in Bacoor and Manila. On Saturday afternoon, the hubby and I attended the funeral mass for the cremation of my former boss who passed away due to some physical ailments. She was such a kind, generous, and intelligent woman with great sense of humor. I owed her a lot for giving me her full trust in my first job and for many other things. (Rest in peace, MPV!) On Sunday, we had a dinner with the fam bam for Father’s Day at our fave resto in SM Manila. My youngest sib wasn’t feeling well and Daddy was in the province so they were not able to join us. We made sure though to greet Daddy and let him know how lucky and grateful we are for having him as our father.
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 weekend flew by quickly. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Saturday morning only to be advised by my boss that I had to go back to Manila the next day for a short notice, work-related meeting at PICC. I badly needed to rest but the said meeting was crucial in discharging my tasks for our upcoming events so off I went. I told myself to make bawi na lang once all of our five ASEAN-related events are over and done with. Despite my crazy sched that weekend, the hubby and I were able to squeeze in attending the anticipated mass at this new church in Las Piñas and a meetup with Team Accent Philippines (TAP a.k.a the car group he wants to be part of).
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.
The hubby and I were in Baguio on April 8-9. Through the kindness of the bosses of my PILs, we were able to stay at the Legarda Mansion there. The Legarda family has been trying to sell the property since the start of the year and my PILs sort of wanted to check it out for the last time. My FIL wasn’t able to join us, though, because he suddenly had something important to do. It was just the hubby, my SIL, my MIL, and me. It was a fun trip and despite my upset stomach, we were able to drive around Baguio with British to eat and shop.
