Weekend Story: Chillax in Bacoor

Last weekend was all about family bonding. The hubby and I went to the wet market along with Mame on Saturday morning. We would then go to SM Molino in the afternoon to buy some supplies, this time with my SIL Albie. The three of us also heard the anticipated mass that night at this church near our place and met up with Mame and my sister Jodie for dinner at Betoy’s Restaurant Molino after. Mame worked last Valentine’s Day at her friend’s flower shop in Kawit and she used a portion of her income to treat us (she insisted). When it’s Mame’s treat, it’s sky’s the limit, kaya ang saya-saya, hahaha. Buti na lang, affordable sa Betoy’s at masarap pa!

Weekend Story: Tagaytay with Tropang Ramen + Another Resto To Love in Bacoor (Betoy’s Restaurant Molino)

Last weekend was carefree and fun. The hubby and I spent most of our Saturday with our good friends Nice and Melay in Tagaytay. Our Sunday was spent with my family. We were not able to go to the wet market and to church this time and instead, we just went grocery shopping and did household chores together. We even got to drive to Naic in the morning with my parents to pick up a few items from our family home there. We plan to have it rented out soon so we’re slowly moving things out of the house.

Weekend Story: Gardening with the Mabalays

Last weekend was quiet and chill. I started Saturday by giving Jasper (the friendly dog) a bath. (He gets a bath every Saturday morning, provided I got enough sleep the night before, hehe.) Mame and I went to the palengke right after. We would then go to church, along with the hubby and my SIL Albie, in the afternoon to hear the anticipated mass.

On Sunday, the hubby and I drove my sister Jodie to her dorm. She opted for this arrangement because she hasn’t adjusted to the Bacoor-Manila-Bacoor commuting situation yet. We were also with Mame and my SIL. Mame wanted to take a look at her youngest child’s dorm kasi. Si SIL naman, nagkaroon ng stroke scare kaya sugod sila ni hubby sa St. Luke’s QC! Buti na lang, false alarm pala. Apparently, it was just a frozen shoulder (thank God!). We would then go back to Bacoor in the afternoon without Jodie but with my brother Dan because I asked him to buy some plant pots in Divisoria for our gardening session later.

Stock Market Journey: My First 6-Digit Gains

On January 28, 2019, my total locked-in profits in the stock market has reached the 6-digit mark. The exact amount, for my own documentation, is PhP100,327.77. Please note that I have been a direct investor since July 2014 and my total stock market investment is under 500K. I have also been recording my gains consistently from the moment I made my first selling transaction in August 2014 and received my first dividend payout, also in the same period. I’m so happy!

Let me tell you, though, that a portion from these gains is on the losing side at present. But hey, those aren’t considered losses until I sell them (which I won’t do!). I’m just glad the market is starting to get strong again, or at least a lot of my positions are.
