Weekend Story: House Guest, Red Velvet Cake, Thai Resto and Unexpected New Stuff

We had a house guest last weekend. It was my mareng Josh. We’ve been friends for a few years and share the distinction of being the godmother to the daughter of one of my bestfriends. It was actually that bestfriend of mine who introduced us to each other. Josh and I always chat on FB and one time while talking about home improvement projects, I decided to invite her for an overnight stay at our Bacoor home.

As expected from two talkative people, we did a lot of chatting. I’m really shy in person but once I get along with someone, I usually never run out of stories to tell. Haha. Aside from chatting (and laughing of course!), we ate a lot and took advantage of the hubby’s LTE pocket Wi-Fi. I was also in the mood to bake then so I made her a red velvet cake which we had for merienda.

it looks good, yes?

We paired the cake with fresh milk. Best combo ever! Try it to believe it! Haha. That’s what the hubby and I do with my homemade chocolate cake as well and we’re always satisfied.

On Sunday, we took mareng Josh to the church inside Fernbrook Gardens to hear the 10:30 a.m. mass there.

After that, we drove to Aguirre Avenue in BF Homes ParaΓ±aque to have lunch. Our restaurant of choice was Songkran Authentic Thai Streetfood. I’ve been hearing good reviews of this Thai resto online so I suggested we eat there. In fairness, we loved their food. The ambience of the resto was very relaxing and the prices were reasonable, too. I wanna go back there when I crave for Thai food again!

Songkran’s Pad Thai was very nice!

My mareng Josh was one generous friend. I didn’t expect her to shower me with new stuff. She had several pasalubong for me that it felt like she just came from a trip abroad. I super like the Aldo wedges she gave me!

She said she just wanted to share some of her blessings with me as she gets a lot of new stuff from relatives and friends based in the US. How lucky can she be? Anyway, I was very grateful for the sweet gesture!

On Sunday night, we drove mareng Josh to her house in Tanza, also in Cavite. When we left, we said our thanks to each other and promised to meet up more often. She said she’ll invite us over to her house one of these days and she’ll cook for the hubby and me. Cool.

It’s just the start of the week but this early, I’m already excited for the coming weekend because it’s gonna be a long one! August 21st and 25th are both holidays! Wohoo, fun times!

How did your weekend go, friends? Tell me about it! πŸ™‚
