Weekend Story: Imus Cathedral + Father’s Day Celebration

Last weekend was another weekend to remember. It was fun and relaxing and beautiful and memorable. I couldn’t ask for more.

Last Saturday was actually the hubby’s first day back in graduate school. He was excited and optimistic like his other classmates but after realizing that his two profs this semester were very strict, his happy feelings dissipated. Haha.

The hubby only got two subjects this semester so he could concentrate on his thesis planning. He was out of the university premises by noontime so we got home in Bacoor early afternoon of Saturday. I was craving for S&R’s Blue Bunny ice cream (in Chocolate Brownie Extreme flavor) so I asked him to have some snacks at S&R Aseana-Baclaran first. It turned out they ran out of my preferred ice cream flavor. Ouch. So, I just settled for the next best thing for me — Mocha Almond Fudge. S&R’s ice cream is definitely way yummier and more affordable than Cold Stone’s, IMHO.

sorry, no photo of the ice cream and just this one

Checking out the goods inside, the hubby made lambing to me and asked for a Father’s Day gift. He got it in the form of a new rash guard and a new shirt. While paying for the items at the counter, I was making plans on how to get back at him come Mother’s Day. Pero bigla ko rin naisip next year pa pala yun, sa birthday ko ko na lang sya babawian. Haha.

We got home at 3pm-ish and took a nap after unloading our bags off the car.

I had the smartest idea for dinner — I bought a whole roasted chicken from S&R! So, instead of cooking some viand, I just cook some rice and then we ate already. As expected, their chicken was tasty and huge!


It even became part of our dinner the next day.

Our Sunday was fun. We rolled out of bed earlier than usual and drove to Imus. We heard the 9AM mass at the historic Imus Cathedral. I’ve been there before but it was my hubby’s first visit. It was still as lovely as the last time I visited.



Armed with his Yi active camera and monopod, the hubby forced me to do a short video of the place with him. He even requested me to upload the video on this blog so here it is (pagbigyan nyo na ang asawa ko, hihi):

Ang saya-saya namin diba? Para kaming mga bata! Tamang trip lang. Haha.

Just across the cathedral is the city’s plaza while the Imus City Hall stands on its right.


Later that day, we went to SM Bacoor to have lunch. It was Father’s Day, after all. Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies out there!


We also met up with a friend to pick up the name necklaces I ordered. They are for the women in my family side. They are made of stainless steel. The quality is very good for its price; I think I wanna resell them. Hmmm…

what do you guys think?

It was raining when we got out of the mall. We got home at 4pm-ish and decided to take a nap. Dinner was at around 7PM. Then just like the usual, we prepared our things and got ready for bed for our early morning drive back to Manila the next day.

And now we’re facing another productive workweek. Have a great Monday, friends! 🙂

May you choose happiness always,

    1. Sa Bayang Luma, sis. If coming from Manila, right side sya ng Aguinaldo hi-way, tapos magright turn pa then papasok sya. Ang pinakamalapit na landmark dun sa kakananan ay Puregold Imus. Ganda ng church, parang yung napapanuod sa Hollywood movies. 🙂

  1. Di pa ako nakaka try ng anything sa S&R. Pang members lang ba yun? Haha! Ignorante lang talaga.. Madalas kasi namin madaanan yung sa may Aseana pero di pa ako nakapasok. =( Ang dami ng nagsabi na masarap daw ang pizzas nila. I wanna try!!!! =(

    Happy Father’s Day to your Hubby!! =) natawa lang talaga ako sa video, ang saya nyo eh hahaha!

    1. Yes, membership shopping sya. Pero kayang-kaya mo ang fee, P700 lang for a year. True, masarap ang pizza at malaki servings ng mga food nila doon. Pinakasulit sa amin ang whole roasted chicken, hehe.

      Thanks for the greeting daw, Jen. Haha, tamang trip diba. 🙂

  2. Oh that pizza got me drooling! Parang gusto ko tuloy bigla ng S&R pizza! Nakakamiss. 😀 Ang cute ng necklaces, yeah try to resell. I’d be your first buyer! Haha! :p

    1. Nakakamiss talaga kaya isama na yan sa listahan ng gagawin mo pag-uwi ng Pinas. Waaah, bigla ako kinabahan. I don’t know how to ship items to UAE, hehehe. Thanks, Kriska! 🙂

    1. Ay, na-try ko dati yung red velvet muffin naman nila, yummy nga! Thanks, pag-isipan ko yan reselling na yan, sis. 🙂

  3. I’ve never been to Cavite. I know, I know. I need to explore the Philippines more. Love the video :)…natawa ako kasi may manang sa likod and she’s watching the two of you.

    1. Yeah, take a vacation na here! My husband noticed her, too, while reviewing the video. Haha. Sabi siguro ni manang ano ba tong mga taong to parang sira lang. 🙂

  4. “sa birthday ko ko na lang say babawian”

    eto ang pinakapanalo sa lahat! ahahahaha Nainggit ako dun sa S&R fries at pizza. How much each costs? 🙂 Yun lang, wala pala akong membership card ahahaha

    Looks like Yi active camera is a good alternative for the super expensive Go Pro

    Uy entrepreneurial ka na hahaha gorabells lang sa pag-sell ng necklaces!

    1. Hahaha. P99 per slice yung pizza pero since malaki sya, hinahati pa ng server sa dalawa yun (see pic above). Yes, ayoko talaga pabilhin si hubby ng Go Pro sabi ko maghanap sya ng mura, ang mahal kaya nun, kaya ayan. Hehe, umpisahan ko na nga magbenta sa opis namin! 🙂

  5. I prefer steel accessories din. Or titanium. Kasi it’s not as expensive, doesn’t fade, and not itchy. Ok talaga the quality. And happy father’s day sa hubby mo!! 🙂 Ours is a little luncheon date lang with the very mkulit Skye who just walked around the resto like she owns it. Kaloka!!!

    1. I can’t agree more, sis. When I was little, my mom bought me a stainless steel ring which I only got to wear when I grew up. Until present time, hindi nagbago, ganun pa rin kaganda pero di ko na suot nakatago na lang kasi may name din na Edel, doble doble na, hahaha. Thanks daw sa greeting sabi ni hubby. Happy Father’s Day, too, to your partner! 🙂
