Last weekend was festive and fun because of the annual celebration of the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel in our barangay here in Manila. We drove to Bacoor on Friday night and got back to Manila on Saturday evening. On Sunday, we had a family lunch and we were joined by our only guest, my PILs’ boss Don Ramon Legarda. This year’s fiesta was a joint celebration for our family as we also celebrated the 5th year in heaven of our little angel Pippo. The rest of the weekend was spent doing household chores, picking up items from the supermarket, and watching Netflix movies. Thank God for weekends talaga!
Last weekend was fun. It was the hubby’s office outing on Friday and Saturday so I just stayed at my siblings’ place to be with them until the hubby came back from Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas. On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with Mame and my aunt Yolly, traveled to my hometown of Peñaranda, Nueva Ecija for the annual fiesta celebration there. Mame has a lot of friends there whom she promised to visit one by one. As we had expected, we got stuffed with food. I know it’s not a good idea because I’m trying really hard to lose weight but in the spirit of the fiesta, keri na. At saka ang sarap kaya kumain pag fiesta, hahaha. It was also good seeing our relatives and Mame’s friends again. I wish we could go to the province every last Sunday of May for the said occasion. We’ll see next year.
Last weekend was a mix of good and bad things for the hubby and me. We actually had a long weekend as we both went on leave on Friday to renew my driver’s license and to have more free time as it was #PippoDay (a.k.a. our angel son’s 4th birth and death anniversary) last September 28th.
We normally visit a new church (not literally new but something we haven’t visited before) during this time but this year was an exemption. We just visited his niche, lighted a candle, and said a prayer. You live in our hearts, son. We’ll see each other again someday. Okay, before I become too emotional here, let me tell you about the rest of our weekend which can be described as a mix of good and bad things.
How was your long weekend, friends? Mine was simple, fun and happy. I had a restful Saturday because while the hubby was attending his classes in graduate school, I was stuck at home alternating between sleeping, eating, and reading books. When he got home in the afternoon, I just fed him lunch and then he joined me in procrastinating. Haha.
We spent the long weekend in Manila because my PILs requested so. They wanted the hubby to celebrate his birthday at their place because his birthday coincided with the Feast Day of St. Michael and the Archangels. It doesn’t happen every year; it’s just this year that the feast day fell on October 5th (which is the hubby’s birthday). And since we would be visiting the Shrine of the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Manaoag, Pangasinan together with friends by Monday, we thought it was a good idea to just stay in Manila.
