Last weekend was highlighted by some small accomplishments and big milestones. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night. Our Saturday was easy breezy. As promised, the delivery guys arrived in our house at around noon with our new ref (first ref we bought since we got married!). By nighttime, we went to the supermarket to buy supplies so we had something to put inside our new appliance. It was kinda funny because we were both thrilled as if it was our first time to go grocery shopping. Haha.
Our Sunday morning was spent hearing mass and our afternoon, watching movies from the hubby’s recently-acquired gadget called Mi box (where you get to have unlimited access to movies, TV series, docus, videos, and a lot more provided you have good internet access). We were back in Manila on Sunday night to have dinner with our family at Cabalen SM Manila. It was Mame’s birthday on that day and it’s my PILs wedding anniversary today so we decided to do a double celebration.

Last weekend was just like a lot of our past weekends — simple and quiet. On Saturday, the hubby biked in Mall of Asia (MOA) in the morning with his biking buddy Giannie while I was busy sleeping, hahaha. When afternoon came, we drove home in Bacoor. We had the house all to ourselves and so we had a lot of couple time doing mostly household chores. We got back to Manila on Sunday night and had a family dinner at Max’s Restaurant SM Manila courtesy of our seaman cousin Jun2x who has just come back from his 11-month stint in a foreign cargo ship. (He was also part of a few of my weekend stories in 2015 when he was still staying at my siblings’ place finishing his seafarer’s trainings and completing his papers.). Thanks again for the treat, Jun2x!
It was another weekend to remember and these few photos are proof to that:

There are only two reasons whenever I get late in posting my weekend stories: either I got crazy busy at work or I got crazy lazy to write because my mind is preoccupied with other more important stuff. It’s a reality that I have to accept. I, however, have recently affirmed my commitment to never miss a weekend story because it’s my way of remembering things, people, and events. It’s also a great reminder of the good life I have. I may not be rich or famous but in my head, I’m my own special person. I’m my own celebrity, if you get my point, hahaha.
So yeah, this weekend story took a bit late to publish. But this time, it’s a different story. I wasn’t swamped with work nor too lazy to make a blog post. It’s just that I encountered some technical difficulties with the blog. Life in Manila suddenly went offline and thank you to two people (special shout out to my blogger friends Kriska and Je!) who both immediately informed me about it as soon as they noticed it. Before I knew it, I had to transfer to a new webhost to ensure this blog’s survival. I have yet to get my complete blog back-up from my old webhost so I’m just making do with my own saved blog back-up and contents from Google caches. I’m still making a lot of re-posting and tweaking here and there. It’s a long story for a different time. For now, let me tell you all about my happy weekend.

Last long weekend was festive and chilly at the same time. Signal no. 2 ang bagyo samin sa Cavite. Mahina ang ulan pero medyo malakas ang hangin. Pahinto-hinto rin ang ulan kaya di naman masyado nakaapekto sa masayang mood ng mga tao. As agreed upon after we got married, the hubby and I spent Christmas with my side of the family in our family home in Naic. On Christmas Day, we drove home in Bacoor together with my three siblings so we could all go back to Manila on the 26th.
Here are some photos to describe our fun Christmas weekend:

Last weekend started and ended just right for the hubby and me. On Friday night, we met up with the hubby’s high school barkada who are now part of my circle of friends as well. We hung out at Borderline Food Park (BFP) in Mandaluyong City. The place was teeming with youthful vibe that, for a few hours of chatter and laughter, we felt like we were in our 20’s. If you are in the mood for food or want some clean fun with cool music, then this is the place to go.

Do you enjoy eating with a group? Do you like the idea of eating on a table filled with food for everyone to enjoy at the same time? How about eating with your bare hands, sans spoon and fork, for a more familiar dining experience? You can experience all that and more at the newly-opened restaurant called Blackbeard’s Seafood Island in SM Manila.
I’ve experienced dining at their Alabang Town Center branch before and just recently, I attended the grand opening of their SM Manila branch (along with two other new restaurants) though I didn’t get to taste their popular “boodle feasts” because I was already too full by then. I was so excited to try their food again that I brought the hubby and my SIL there just the other night.
