Last weekend, the hubby and I continued with our Christmas shopping. Little purchases here and there in the past weekends and before we knew it, we were able to complete all we needed to buy for ourselves this Christmas, including our gifts for each other. As usual, family members wanted cash gifts instead of actual presents and so those were what they got. The good thing about this is I have a feeling we’ll have a stress-free holiday come December 25th. The sad thing about this is there’s no longer a Landmark Makati Christmas shopping with my girls to look forward to this month like in the past years. Sila rin naman kasi nagsipag-shopping na rin nung mga nakaraang linggo, kami rin nga yung magkakasama lol, kaya halos nabili na rin ang lahat ng kailangan nila.
The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night along with my SIL Albie. Then we went out on Saturday afternoon to shop in Alabang while Albie commuted back to Manila because she wanted to spend the rest of the weekend with my PILs. We stayed in Bacoor until Sunday afternoon and met with my in-laws at night to have dinner and do more shopping at our fave mall, SM Manila, haha.
Below are some photos from our weekend:
my winner Singapore chicken curry for two (I used Asian Home Gourmet’s Singapore curry spice paste for this and it was the best!)
the hubby’s answered prayer of an all-occasion present which cost me an arm and a leg 😛
new throw pillow covers for our sofa
dinner at Casa Reyes Bistro Filipino SM Manila that has just had a transformation from a fast food dining place to a casual dining restaurant (we love their food!)
this mildly-spiced lechon sisig at Casa Reyes was a delight in its own right
Have a fun and fruitful week, friends! 🙂
May you choose happiness always,

Hi Edel! Merry Christmas in advance! 🙂 Ang ganda ng throw pillow covers mo 🙂 May I ask where you bought them? 🙂
Thank you! Merry Christmas also, Jackie! Sa Rob Ermita dept store ko nabili ang throw pillow covers, andami magagandang prints dun! Kaso wala pa ako makita na cover for 30×30, meron kasi akong throw pillow na ganun kalaki, mukhang ipapasadya ko ata, haha. 🙂
Uuuuyy! Try ko nga ang Casa Reyes!!! 🙂
Go, sis! Babalik talaga kami dun. 🙂
I was about to type, san na yung shopping sa Landmark? Hahahah wala na ang yearly tradition.
SM Manila… the favorite mall Hahahaha Kahit medyo naubos na yung fave shops ko, binabalik balikan ko pa din because madaling magbayad ng bills hahaha Isa lang naman yung hindi ko kakainan sa SM manila.. alam mo na yun hahahahaha Next year, try ko yang Casa Reyes. Last year, every after work nasa SM Manila ata ako with friends for some last minute shopping. Medyo nagkagulo ang buhay ko dahil sa nasirang laptop :p Na miss ko tuloy ang fave mall naten hahaha
Haha, baka next year na ulit, napaaga kasi ang pagshopping this year. Grabe yung fave mall natin, nakakaubos ng pera at nakakataba, hahaha. 🙂
