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!
For last weekend, the hubby suddenly decided to drive to Tagaytay on a Sunday morning right after we went to church to hear mass. My mind was preoccupied with work (i.e. ASEAN-related events) that I just said yes without thinking. Before I knew it, I was already staring at the beautiful Taal Lake and wolfing down some burger and rice meals at Mushroomburger. It was a fun trip which I would like to do every now and then as I want to try as much restaurants and attractions in Tagaytay as I can given our free time and of course, budget.
Our Holy Week this year was spent with family. The hubby and I, along with Mame and my sister Jodie, did Visita Iglesia in Cavite on Maundy Thursday. We started with our neighborhood church in Bacoor (first) and for our final church (seventh), this new church discovery of ours in Tagaytay known locally as the Peach Sisters Chapel. We then met up with the rest of the family at Water Camp in Kawit for swimming. We had loads of fun and rest which are what we look forward to every year whenever the Holy Week season is here.
Last Saturday, the hubby and I drove up to Tagaytay to meet with his high school BFF Jeff and his family. They were staying at One Tagaytay Place for the weekend to celebrate the birthday of his wife Karen. The initial plan was to dip in the hotel’s pool and have merienda after but we ended up visiting a puzzle museum which turned out to be more fun.
Puzzle Mansion is literally filled with puzzles. Did you know that the world’s largest puzzle collection owned by a Filipina named Gina Gil Lacuna is housed there? I bet you did because it was all over the news in 2012 after it was certified by the Guiness Book of World Records.
Last week was loaded with happenings. It all started at the restaurant where I work part-time where we had big groups from Monday to Friday. I had to pass up on the Friday party, though, because that was the date I reserved a table for three at Sofitel’s Spiral for the boyfriend, his sister A and yours truly.
Though I’m quite familiar with the buffet setting in restaurants, it was my first time to have a Spiral buffet dinner. Oh boy was it overwhelming! I haven’t seen so much food in one place.
