Weekend Story: Home Sweet Home with My In-Laws

One of the perks of staying in our Bacoor home during weekends is we get to practice being husband and wife. You know, just the two of us doing things together. Having house guests, however, has its own advantages. Like when my in-laws join us in Bacoor, for instance, and life suddenly becomes easier. You see, my MIL is very fond of doing household chores. Whenever she’s visiting us, she wouldn’t stop until she sees the whole house spick and span. Actually, she hates clutter so much that when she was still working at the restaurant, she would spend her days off staying at home and just cleaning up their house. She gets satisfied and happy doing just that. Now that she’s semi-retired, she still does a lot of cleaning (at their place here in Manila and at ours in Bacoor). I hope I inherit her “kasipagan” one day. Haha.

We drove to Bacoor with my in-laws on Saturday night and not earlier because we still had some errands to finish. We decided to have dinner at our new fave Japanese resto in Bacoor, Izakaya Shinchan. It was my in-laws first time there and I was glad they liked the food. We had kani salad, California maki, ramen, and ebi tendon, among others. I didn’t order gyozas anymore because the restaurant’s version (that we tried during our previous visit) lacked taste and had more veggies than meat which I didn’t like.

We spent our Sunday just chilling out at home, watching TV and eating homecooked meals prepared by my MIL. Another thing I like about her is that she’s a terrific cook! For lunch that day, we had sinigang sa miso na ulo ng tuna. Andami ko na naman nakaing kanin, kaines! Hahaha.

We were back in Manila by Sunday night. It was another weekend that passed by swiftly, quiet but fun, and left us with plenty of good memories (but almost zero photos).

Enjoy the rest of the week, friends! πŸ™‚

May you choose happiness always,

  1. Therapeutic kasi mag linis ng bahay and it’s so nice to come home to a clean (and fresh-smelling) house! Hope you’re having a good week so far Edel! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. Naiinherit nga kaya ang kasipagan sa pag-aayos ng bahay? Kasi gusto ko kung meron non.

    Ang swerte mo sa MIL mo na magaling at mahilig magluto. Minsan iniisip ko paano ko pakakainin ang future family ko dahil di talaga ako passionate sa pagluluto. Wish ko na lang na ma-inspire nila ako ng bongga para sipagin akong magluto ng masasarap hahaha.

    Happy Valentines Day!

    1. I wish namamana nga ang kasipagan! Ma-iinspire ka rin siguro magluto lalo na pag may anak ka na kasi wala naman nanay na gusto magutom ang anak nya, hehe. Masipag din naman si Mame pero mas masipag si MIL kasi feeling ko she is really passionate about home management! Happy Valentine’s Day, too, Mylene! πŸ™‚

  3. Ako naman sobrang miss ko na yung may gumagawa ng mga bagay bagay para sakin! Yung tipong paggising mo kakain ka na lang, tapos after kumain wala ka na iintindihan. Hahaha! Ang hirap pala when you’re on your own. I had to learn that the long and hard way…after 28 years!

  4. D ko malimutan si MIL sa La Cocina πŸ™‚ at least nakakain ako minsan… wait, that was two years ago na pala. 2015 back then. I also noticed parang ang dami restaurants to small food chains sa MalacaΓ±ang compound, hope you can write a blog post about it πŸ™‚

    1. We miss La Cocina, waaaah! Alam mo Diane, ang binabalik balikan ko lang sa mga yon ay ang Ersao, hahaha. Saka meron palang bagong bukas na coffee shop from Davao, yung Blugre. Durian coffee specialty nila kaso hindi naman ako mahilig sa durian… πŸ™
