Last weekend was relaxing and fun! I had a restful Saturday (I slept until 1:00 p.m.) and on Sunday, the hubby and I drove up to Tagaytay to meet up with my aunts and cousins from my father’s side. My mom was with them (two of my aunts are her BFFs!) so we were able to see her, too.
If there’s something that a balikbayan wants to do upon setting foot again in his/her motherland, that’s to touch base with his/her relatives and friends. I was glad that my balikbayan aunt Laura (she’s my dad’s first cousin) did just that and also went out of her way to see places she had missed most while abroad. One of those places was Tagaytay and so yesterday, she went there with her group and invited us over. She even brought her two nieces (my second cousins) along so I could meet them. They would be coming from Sta. Rosa City in Laguna where she currently stays at her two nieces’ place.
In Tagaytay, we visited Picnic Grove, Sky Ranch, and The Cliff House (yes, in that order). Tita Laura’s group brought some merienda which we ate in one of the tables at Picnic Grove.
After eating, we headed to Sky Ranch and saw a large crowd of families and friends having a great time there. We didn’t go inside anymore and just took photos outside.
We then proceeded to The Cliff House to take more photos, this time with the Taal Lake as backdrop.
We would have stayed longer in Tagaytay if my other aunt Rosie didn’t have to leave early. She still had to go back to San Jose City in Nueva Ecija where she lives. Our chikahan was cut chort but it was okay. We plan to meet again for the farewell party of aunt Laura who’s going back to Canada next month.
The hubby and I drove back to Bacoor and reach home at past 2:00 p.m. We took a nap right after and when we woke, spent the rest of the day doing household chores. When nighttime came, I cooked some dinner and we ate together. Then, the hubby spent a few hours working on his school report while I read several pages from my current book before we decided to go to bed at around 10:00 p.m.
By 5:45 a.m. today, we’re already back in Manila to face a new workweek.
Kumusta naman ang weekend nyo, mga kapatid? 🙂
