Weekend Story: Eating and Biking Galore

Last weekend was filled with eating and biking, hence, the title. It started on Friday night when the hubby and I, along with my in-laws, went to Blue Bay Walk on Macapagal Blvd. My PILs suddenly decided to dine out to remember the 6th death anniversary of the hubby’s aunt (we miss you, Mamala!) in advance.

On Saturday, I had work in the morning (half-day only) and spent the afternoon with some “me” time at the mall. I went to Buff Spa for a foot spa package which was very relaxing. The hubby, on the other hand, biked in the morning with his officemate Giannie and attended his grad school class in the afternoon.

Then, we met up with our friends Nice and Melay in Alabang. We had some good ramen and coffee there before going home in Bacoor where our two companions stayed for the night.

Our Sunday started out laidback but ended on a high note. We woke up late and shared breakfast and lunch before we parted ways with our house guests. Nice is a Cavite resident also while Melay lives in the same Manila neighborhood as ours. The hubby and I, along with Melay, arrived in Manila at past 5PM.

After an hour has passed, the hubby and I went biking at Mall of Asia (MOA). We got caught in the middle of a festivity (Sto. Niño parade) along Roxas Blvd., south-bound side, that we alternated between biking and walking on our way to MOA. We had a little problem on our way home as the hubby’s front tire suddenly went flat due to a thumbtuck puncture. Good thing we bumped into a small group of bikers at MOA who offered their help in fixing his tire for free! God bless them! We will surely pay it forward.

Ever since the hubby bought a new mountain bike two weekends ago, we’ve been biking almost every night. (I use my FIL’s vintage racer bike and I love it!) You could say our 8 o’clock habit now revolves around biking.

Edel the pro biker, chos!

Anybody here who bikes? Let’s go on a ride sometime!

Have a great week, friends! 🙂

May you choose happiness always,

    1. Hindi pa kami nagtry magbike ng malayo sa Cavite, usually sa loob ng village lang dati. Pero yes, sis, patag mga kalsada kaya masarap magbike. Kami kasi ayaw naman namin ng trail, city biking lang talaga. 🙂

  1. Ugh, I’m so jealous. I wish I could bike and navigate the city like you guys do. And that Ramen looks so delicious. Is Manila bike friendly? I was in Manila in 2006 and all I remember are the jeeps and the heat.

    1. Don’t be. I’m sure the biking experience there is way better! It’s bike friendly here in Manila in most areas. Yes, that ramen is the best we’ve tried so far! 🙂

  2. I can’t wait for Spring season here so that I can ride a bike outdoor instead of stationary bike. You’re so lucky you can do it all year round!
