Weekend Story: A Musical, A Shopping Trip, and A Birthday Party

Last weekend was packed and fun-filled. Truly, the holiday season is here!

Half of our Saturday was spent in Makati watching the awesome musical The Bridges of Madison County at RCBC Plaza, enjoying dinner at Backyard Kitchen + Brew in Circuit Makati (our first time there), and checking out the dancing lights at the festive Ayala Triangle Gardens. The hubby and I were with my sister Jodie and my SIL Albie and we had lots of fun.

great show, this one!

On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with Mame and my two sisters heard the 8AM mass at St. Jude Shrine and went straight to Landmark Makati after. The hubby entertained himself at some coffee shop while I joined force with Mame and my two sisters to keep our Christmas shopping tradition alive. I bought only a few clothes this time and focused my energy checking out stuff at the home section. I ended up getting a cake server (not the ideal glass-type yet) and several pieces of dishware.

Sunday night saw us partying with the Katipuneros at Sir Billy’s birthday celebration held at The Patio of La Cocina de Tita Moning. We had a great time feasting on Filipino-Spanish dishes and drinking Sangria. Of course, there was a bit of socializing involved but most of the time, I was just talking and laughing with the hubby and my SIL Albie.

Paella Valenciana lang naman ang isa sa mga pagkain ng mga Katipuneros, hehe
