Last long weekend was all about celebrating and bonding with friends. On Saturday, I was at Via Mare, MOA Arena Annex during lunchtime for the christening of my college friend’s son. From there, the hubby and I went home in Bacoor and that night, we had a date at Evia Lifestyle Center because the hubby wanted to see the latest Transformers movie in the cinema house. But not before going to the church because the hubby’s religious like that. By Sunday, we drove back to Manila and attended the hubby’s cousin’s son’s birthday at Jollibee Grace Park in Caloocan City with my in-laws. We spent Monday just at home doing household chores and taking lots of rest.
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 was hectic. We attended several events on Saturday: Hyundai’s National Car Wash Day at Hyundai Quezon Avenue, Manila International Auto Show (MAIS) 2017 at the World Trade Center, and Team Accent Philippines’ (TAP) members meet up at Vikings Mall of Asia (MOA). We also squeezed in a visit to the Uber offices in Taft Avenue Avenue and One-Ecom MOA, to submit the hubby’s requirements. Yes, he applied to be an Uber partner and got accepted. He will do it on a part-time basis and he’s already excited about his first trip, hahaha. On Sunday, we drove to Tagaytay to unwind before heading back to Manila that same day.
Below are some photos that describe our weekend:
Last weekend took the hubby and I (and my sister Jodie) from Manila to Bacoor and Batangas and back to Manila. Traveling is always fun, especially if there’s no traffic along the way to your destination. SLEX traffic was light to zero last Saturday so our trip to Sto. Tomas, Batangas where the St. Pio Shrine is located was a breeze. We found out that there’s now a second open-air chapel there that’s quite bigger than the old one. It must be the admin’s positive response to the growing number of visitors in the place. In Manila on Sunday, we attended the birthday party of the hubby’s guy cousin’s daughter at Jollibee-C3 in Caloocan City. He’s the one whose wedding we attended in this weekend story. Oh, how time flies! Now, their baby is one year old. Which reminds me, the hubby and I should try harder at getting pregnant, hahaha.
Here are some pics from our fun weekend:
Our fifth wedding anniversary called for a celebration and deserved a long weekend so the hubby and I both filed for a leave last Friday. We then checked into Acacia Hotel in Alabang for a staycation (just what we needed after an exhausting work week!). Acacia Hotel didn’t disappoint, from the room accommodation and hotel facilities to the friendly service and breakfast buffet. Everything was beyond what we expected so we ended up having an awesome overnight stay. The rest of our weekend was spent with family: malling with my in-laws on Saturday night and driving up to Antipolo to hear mass and having a family dinner at Robinsons Place Ermita on Sunday. It was a fun weekend and we are grateful for the happy memories created and shared.
