Last weekend, the hubby and I were joined by Mame and our balikbayan relative Ate Laura in Bacoor. We drove to our house on Saturday morning with a stop over at S&R Baclaran for a quick lunch and eventually, some grocery shopping. On Sunday, we woke up early to hear the morning mass and make a surprise visit to my uncle in Dasmariñas. Then we went up to Tagaytay and Alfonso. In Tagaytay, we took Ate Laura to Mushroomburger for snacks because she’s a health buff, haha. (Next time, we’ll take her to Sonya’s Garden!) In Alfonso, we checked out The Gingerbread House and visited this foreclosed property that I have recently spotted on the website of a local bank. Naisip ko lang kasi baka kayanin ko nang tuparin ang farm house dream ko, chos!
Last weekend was spent with family and friends. The hubby and I went home in Bacoor on Friday night and got back to Manila on Saturday night, meeting up with my in-laws at Robinsons Place Ermita for dinner and doing more Christmas shopping. On Sunday, we, along with our good friend Carmela and my superfriend Nice traveled to Pangasinan to pay a visit to the Our Lady of Manaoag. It’s now a yearly thing for us, a tradition of sorts.
Here are some things that made our 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.
Last weekend was another weekend to remember. It was fun and relaxing and beautiful and memorable. I couldn’t ask for more.
Last Saturday was actually the hubby’s first day back in graduate school. He was excited and optimistic like his other classmates but after realizing that his two profs this semester were very strict, his happy feelings dissipated. Haha.
For this year, the first S&R Members’ Treat happened from March 13 to 17. It was five days full of shopping for goods that were heavily discounted, some of them even on a buy one, take one promo. We got to visit last Friday night at the Aseana-Baclaran branch on our way home to Cavite. With our limited money, we only bought a few items.
As we have expected, the place was jampacked with people and the lines to the cashier were exaggeratedly long. Haha. We did the smart thing by queuing up while we alternately looked for what we wanted to buy. Among the items we took home, this was what I liked best:
I used to lust over wooden hangers. I thought they were simple and low-maintenance yet they exude a certain sense of elegance. I wanted to buy a few dozen after seeing them at S&R last month but decided against it because I didn’t have enough cash that time. (My credit card was out of the question.) If I remembered correctly, the 5-piece set costs PHP189.75.
The hubby and I dropped by S&R Aseana-Baclaran Branch again last Saturday on our way home to Bacoor to get a quick grab and I suddenly remembered about the wooden hangers. When I saw them again, I thought it was the time to get them. But when my eyes landed on a box of slim hangers made of metal but dressed in olive-colored velvet, I knew right then and there my obsession with wooden hangers has died.
