Weekend Story: Simple Treats

Last weekend was all about simple treats. I made up for the down time last weekend (when I got sick with cold and cough) and treated myself to some little cravings. These were food and things. I was happy and content and now I’m blogging about it.

The hubby and I drove to Bacoor on Saturday afternoon, a few hours after his classes in grad school. We dropped by S&R Aseana-Baclaran to have some snacks. Choosing what to get for me was a no-brainer. I had been craving for their ice cream in my fave flavor and so I got a cup of it. I also indulged in a muffin. Solved!

S&R’s Choco Pecan Muffin and Choco Brownie Extreme Ice Cream

When we got home, we just unloaded our things and settled in the living room to rest. The hubby turned on the TV while I continued reading my book, Cuba by Emily Barr. I had been reading it since last week and I finally finished reading it that night. It was a good read but a bit sad. I had a love-hate relationship with the protagonist. In the end, I pitied her and wished her luck as she went on with her life. If there’s one good thing that the book gave me, it’s that it has made me want to travel to Cuba. Like, seriously.

I brought the book back to my book shelf upstairs and got a new one to read, The Hungry Years, Confessions of a Food Addict by William Leith. It’s a memoir and I’m still reading it and I’m having a great time. So much insights and little pieces of knowledge about obesity and dieting and the world of carbohydrates that makes people grow bigger and bigger by the day.

If last, last weekend, I was reading an e-book, this time I was reading soft bounds. I actually enjoy reading through different mediums as long as I like the book I’m reading. How about you?

Last Friday, we were at SM Manila and I was able to get some soft bounds from Book Sale. Four books for P60, not bad, right?


On Sunday, we weren’t able to hear the morning mass and just dropped by the church after lunch to pray. I continued reading in the afternoon. Merienda was grilled white corn with salt and pepper and lots of butter. Yummy!


After dinner at past 6PM, we left for Manila already. I asked the hubby to check out MOA before going home because I wanted to do some window shopping. I knew he would grant my request because deep inside, he wanted to check out his fave gadget shops, too. Haha.

I saw Jamba Juice while walking around and got myself one of their fruit and veggie smoothies. It had kale and apple and a few more fruits so it must be good for my health. The hubby, on the other hand, got himself a blizzard from Dairy Queen.


MOA was festive as usual. The crowd was composed mostly of families and friends trying to unwind. The restaurants were filled with diners. The bars fronting Manila Bay were packed with patrons. We even saw some bands playing there. I noticed some musicians with hodad electric guitars. They looked so cool carrying them. I would have done more people watching but it was a cold, rainy night and so we made sure to get home before 11PM.

Tell me about your weekend, friends! I’d love to hear about it! 🙂

May you choose happiness always,
