Last long weekend was quiet and relaxing. On Saturday morning, the hubby and I took Jasper (our pet dog) to the clinic for his anti-rabies shot. We then drove to Bacoor in the afternoon along with my SIL Albie. We spent the rest of the weekend mostly at home eating and sleeping and watching this new TV series on Netflix called Santa Clarita Diet. It stars my fave Hollywood star Drew Barrymore, so why not? Haha. Personally, I like the zombie-themed show as its light and funny with just the right amount of violence and gore. On Sunday, we weren’t able to hear mass because we woke up late in the morning and got lazy in the afternoon. We drove back to Manila on Monday night and prepared for the new work week with a wide smile (coz it’s a short one and a new weekend awaits!).
The hubby and I both self-declared a long weekend last weekend. Justified naman because it was a milestone in our married life, hehe. March 17th, which fell on a Saturday this year, was our 6th wedding anniversary. So, we decided to spend it on a trip to a place we hadn’t been to yet. I suggested Puerto Princesa City (PPC) in Palawan and the hubby said yes in a jiffy. He said he wanted to experience the marvelous underground river tour the place is famous for. I, on the other hand, wanted the same and more.
So, I immediately booked our tickets and accommodation for a 4D3N vacation (March 15-18, 2018) at PPC which, we would later find out, is known as the “city in a forest.” We even had some company during the trip courtesy of Mame, my MIL, and my balikbayan aunt Laura. Gusto raw nila sumama, eh madali naman kami kausap, kaya go! Totoo naman pala talaga na maganda at malinis sa Puerto Princesa! Nakakatuwa at nakakamangha rin na napapaligiran ng mga puno at berdeng berde ang kapaligiran doon!
Last weekend was quiet and quick. Haha. We spent as early as Friday night in Bacoor and dedicated much of our time watching Suits (our current fave TV series) on Netflix, eating, cuddling, and doing household chores. We went to the mall on Saturday afternoon to do some grocery shopping and pick up some summer-related stuff. On Sunday, we made a quick trip to Batangas to hear the 9:30AM mass at Lipa Cathedral in Lipa City before driving to the next town, Mataas na Kahoy, to attend the christening of my officemate’s second baby (the first one is my godchild!). From there, we went straight home in Manila and even got to do some malling at Robinsons Place Manila with my in-laws before calling it a day.
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.
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.
After several postponements due to our crazy hectic sched at work, our office outing/team building/strategic planning workshop has finally pushed thru last weekend. The rainy season has officially begun but what the heck, we hit the beach like it was still summer. It was a good thing that the weather cooperated. The sun would peek through the clouds every now and then but it was predominantly gloomy and it rained just once (more like a quick rain shower!) during our overnight stay at Pico Sands Hotel, one of the structures inside the massive property that is Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club in Nasugbu, Batangas.
