Weekend Story: Father’s Day 2017 + Gourdo’s Placemats + Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote Bag

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.

Weekend Story: Bonding with My In-Laws

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.

Weekend Story: Fiesta in My Hometown (Peñaranda, Nueva Ecija)

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.

Weekend Story: Post-Mother’s Day Celebration with Mame

Because the hubby and I were in Bohol when Mother’s Day came, I asked Mame (who dragged my sister Jodie along) to join us for the weekend in Bacoor so I could take her on a date, a post Mother’s Day celebration of sorts. We didn’t do anything grand, we just drove around and dined out at some of Mame’s fave restos (yung mga namiss nya daw kainan!). We reached Bacoor on Saturday afternoon and spent the night there. We then went to Solenad in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna on Sunday morning before going home in Manila that same day. Mame made us laugh a lot again with her unique sense of humor and before we knew it, the weekend was over.

Weekend Story: Subic Fun Ride + Home Sweet Home

Last weekend was all about Subic and the car club that the hubby wanted to be part of, Team Accent Philippines (TAP). We woke up early on Saturday morning and drove to Harbor Point in Subic, Zambales where the meet up was. We mingled with the TAP people there who were quite nice and friendly (as we expected). The good news is that the hubby finally got accepted as an official TAP member and as a symbol of it, he was allowed to buy the official car sticker of the group. Plus, of course, our overnight stay in Bacoor (we drove there straight from Subic) to check out our home sweet home and do some cleaning there. It was a fun weekend overall and despite the summer heat, we were able to get as much rest as we could. Now, we’re back to the daily grind here in Manila.

Weekend Story: Crazy Workload, ASEAN Summit Gala Dinner, and Other Stuff

I was swamped with work the entire month of April. Actually, I was crazy busy in the office even before that time. We were handling five big events and my officemates and I were really having a hard time managing our time. Like it was beyond-what-our-human-bodies-could-take kind of thing already. There was just so much to do with so little time and energy from our part. We prepared early but it seemed all our preparations weren’t enough. After publishing my first weekend story for the month, I couldn’t get myself to publish the next ones so I decided to just publish them all in one go today. Yes, only today when I’m as free as a bird again, work wise.
