My cold started last week and its aftermath, the cough, continues to pester me until this day. I feel much better now, though, as compared to last weekend when I felt drowsy. I was very grateful to my husband for taking good care of me. If it weren’t for him, I would’ve felt sick and miserable all weekend.
Anyway, we arrived in Bacoor Saturday afternoon. We didn’t plan to go out that night but our toilet’s flush suddenly broke so we had no choice but to get a replacement. We drove to Evia-Daang Hari at 7pm-ish and checked out the Ace Hardware branch there. After finding and buying what we were looking for, we got out of the store and looked for a place to have dinner.
Choosing between Hap Chan and Chibi’s Kitchen, we settled for the latter. It’s a tiny Japanese place that serves affordable and delicious food. The hubby had their Katsudon (P245) while I went for their Curry Katsu (P300). Our orders came with a miso soup, some salad, some radish appetizer, and a cup of hot barley tea. We finished everything and got home very satisfied.
Our Sunday was quite normal. We woke up late and just drove to the church nearest to our village to pray and after that, picked up some pork steak and pork liver from my suking meat shop. We also dropped by a 7-Eleven store to pay our Cignal bill and get some breakfast.
As requested by the hubby, I cooked Bistek Tagalog using the pork steak and pork liver we bought earlier. I also added some hard-boiled eggs to the dish. Protein overload it was! Haha.
I just reheated the frozen ginisang munggo from last weekend and added some water to it and voila, a tasty soup for us! We were slurping the hot soup while the rain was pouring hard outside. What simple bliss!
We ate the same food for dinner because that’s how we’ve been doing it ever since we got married. Unless, of course, when we feel like going out to eat or I’m in the mood to whip up a new dish.
I spent the rest of the weekend taking lots of water and vitamin supplements and rest.
I also finished reading China Rich Girlfriend (the sequel to the Crazy Rich Asians book I made kwento about last weekend) while munching on santols (freshly picked from my FIL’s tree in Manila the day before).
As usual, Kevin Kwan didn’t disappoint. The second book was even grander and more hilarious and witty than the first. I heard he’s writing a third book, making it a trilogy. I just have to read it as well!
The hubby, on the other hand, busied himself taking care of me, doing some household chores, and finishing his grad school assignments.
I hope your weekend was better than ours, friends! 🙂
