Last weekend was quiet and relaxing. Friday night saw the hubby and me joining my officemates in traveling to Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas to visit the wake of my officemate Gerlie’s father. From Batangas, we drove to Bacoor (but only after dining at a McDonalds store for the requisite pagpag practice) with our good friend Carmela who also joined the wake visit because she and Gerlie’s sister are officemates also. She would then leave us for Manila on Saturday morning just in time for the arrival of Mame and my sister Jodie who planned to spend the rest of the weekend with us. That night, the hubby and I went out to hear the anticipated mass at Madonna del Amore Quasi Parish in Las Piñas and attend another Team Accent Philippines (TAP) – South Chapter meet-up at Manong’s Grill in Alabang where we got to meet and mingle with more TAP members.
Last long weekend was relaxing. I think it had to do with the weather, our house guests (Mame, Daddy, and my sister Jodie), and the things we did. Like going on food trips in BF Homes, Parañaque and in Alabang. Like watching movies on Netflix (thanks to its 1-month free trial, haha). Like spending time with my family, just talking to and laughing with them. Like cuddling with the hubby. Like cooking for my loved ones and washing the dishes. Like listening to the sound of the pouring rain outside. Like doing nothing and just feeling the moment. Overall, it was a long weekend well spent. And as early as now, I’m already looking forward to the next one!
Last weekend flew by fast. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby in attending his car club’s 6th anniversary grand eye ball held at Googel restaurant in Mandaluyong City. There we met more than 600 members (most of them with +1’s, too) of Team Accent Philippines (TAP). The event was fun and came complete with production numbers and raffle draws. I think we reached Bacoor just before midnight. Our Sunday started late. We skipped going to church this time and just stayed home to rest until it was time to go back to Manila at night. Oh, I also did some workout in the morning pala because I felt I have gotten so big already.*sigh*
It was just the hubby and me in Bacoor last weekend. We drove there on Friday night and went back to Manila on Sunday night, the longest we’ve stayed in a weekend in our marital home since the last few months. We just enjoyed each other’s company, and went out of the house only when we had to. Like when we heard the mass at the church near our village and bought some stuff at the mall on Sunday morning. The rest of the time was spent doing household chores, getting online, eating, and sleeping. Oh, we also had our Cignal cable subscription replaced with a different one (also with several HD channels) that came bundled with unlimited internet (3 Mbps) because the hubby wanted to and he agreed to pay half of its monthly fee (which is now higher at PHP1,575 because of the internet bundle). Super fine with me! Haha.

Last weekend was spent with family and friends (our usual routine). The hubby and I actually had a long one because we took a leave from work on Friday to attend the wedding of our friend Leisette in Pasig. We would then drive home in Bacoor on Saturday afternoon with my parents and my sister Jodie who was celebrating her birthday the next day. That night, we heard the anticipated mass at Madonna del Amore Parish and went straight to Evia Lifestyle Center after. We then treated our house guests to Chinese food for dinner at Hap Chan. Jodie’s birthday salubong happened inside the moviehouse where we watched Spiderman Homecoming in 4D (her treat!). We returned to Manila on Sunday night where we met up with the rest of the fam bam at Okada Manila to watch the dancing fountain there. It was another weekend to remember and be grateful for!
Last weekend was a-okay. On Saturday, I accompanied Mame to the nearest hospital for a medical check-up. Because my brother has recently made extra gigil to her by carrying and hugging her tight, the area under her left boob got sprained. She started complaining about the pain and eventually asked me to take her to the doctor, but not before a few attempts by the manghihilot have failed to give her the relief she wanted. It turned out it was just a case of muscle inflammation that some warm compress and pain reliever could heal. Thank God! I can be paranoid when it comes to the health of my family (who’s not?) so I’m glad this simple health problem is resolved now.
