Last weekend was relaxing and fun. The hubby and I missed going home in Bacoor due to some errands we had to do. He, for instance, had to attend his lone Saturday class in grad school. He was supposed to finish his master’s program last October but he encountered some problem with his thesis (a prototype). Now he still has to fix that and prepare for his thesis defense and hopefully, he’ll be able to graduate in March 2017. But I digress.
So yeah, we spent the entire weekend here in Manila. On Saturday, I went to Quiapo with Mame to buy some crochet supplies. I’ve finally had the time to learn crocheting with Mame as teacher. Boy, was she great! And I have to think I was a fast learner, too! Buhatan na ito ng sariling bangko, hahaha.
Crocheting is therapeutic. It tests your patience and gives you a sense of fulfillment (and even painful hands after!). But I enjoy doing it. I hope I can sustain it. I started with a spaghetti top. It doesn’t look dainty yet but it’ll get there soon…
My next project is going to be a puff stitch scarf. I found a pattern online and I already watched a tutorial on how to do a puff stitch. Armed with that knowledge, I’m gonna wait and see!
On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with my siblings Dan and Nyam, visited the National Museum of the Philippines (NMP). I heard the entrance is free now even on weekdays. The museum is also fully air-conditioned. It was my siblings’ first time there and I was glad we pushed through the trip. It turned out to be so much fun. Of course, we took a lot of pictures.
Before going to NMP, we had lunch at Amber’s on Kalaw Avenue. Their spaghetti was saucier, and therefore, more delish, when eaten fresh off the kitchen! I’m a self-confessed spaghetti girl and I totally loved it!
After NMP, we headed to Robinsons Place Manila (RPM) to cool down and eat. We chose St. Marc’s Cafe for its yummy milkshake and choco cro.
My brother Dan and I shared this beef pastrami sandwich. It was quite filling and we were satisfied with the taste.
I spent a few hours before bedtime crocheting again and it made me happy. I can’t wait for my first-ever crochet output.
Enjoy the rest of the week, friends! 🙂
May you choose happiness always,
