Last weekend was a great time to rest and relax. We went out to brave the heavy traffic on Friday night, though, and traveled all the way to Alabang from Manila to eat delicious ramen with friends. Ramen Yushoken made me eat pork! I just couldn’t resist their tantanmen and gyoza. Sinulit ko na ang cheat day ko, hahaha. The rest of the weekend, the hubby and I were just cozying up together in the bed tinkering with our phones because it was the next best thing to do aside from doing nothing. We only went out to hear the mass and go to the wet market on Sunday before driving back to Manila in the afternoon that same day.
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 easy breezy and started early for the hubby and me. On Friday night, we met up with friends to celebrate the birthday of our friend Raffy. He’s the chairman of a barangay here in Manila and he just turned 39. From our meeting place which was their barangay hall, we transferred to a nearby restaurant to have dinner and some wine. We were a group of six and we spent time until a little past midnight. From the restaurant, the hubby and I drove to Bacoor and stayed there until Sunday night.
Last weekend flew by swiftly. The hubby and I drove to Bacoor on Friday night with a stop over at S&R Baclaran to buy supplies. We would then spend the entire Saturday and most of Sunday at home. We only went out when we heard the mass on Sunday morning and bought some more supplies at the Robinsons supermarket near our village. These past weekends, we’ve been hooked on our smart TV. (We use it alternately: he browses Netflix while I turn to this cool site online for my movie fix; when I’m in front of the TV, he’s with our iPad and vice versa.) I also started crocheting again because I noticed that my yarn supplies were already collecting dust under the bed where I placed them, haha. I hope to finish my new crochet project (using a stitch I just learned) in the coming weeks.

Last weekend was quiet and relaxing. Friday night saw the hubby and me joining my officemates in traveling to Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas to visit the wake of my officemate Gerlie’s father. From Batangas, we drove to Bacoor (but only after dining at a McDonalds store for the requisite pagpag practice) with our good friend Carmela who also joined the wake visit because she and Gerlie’s sister are officemates also. She would then leave us for Manila on Saturday morning just in time for the arrival of Mame and my sister Jodie who planned to spend the rest of the weekend with us. That night, the hubby and I went out to hear the anticipated mass at Madonna del Amore Quasi Parish in Las Piñas and attend another Team Accent Philippines (TAP) – South Chapter meet-up at Manong’s Grill in Alabang where we got to meet and mingle with more TAP members.
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?
