Weekend Story: Moving Slow and Steady

As it’s only a matter of weeks (or months) before the property where my PILs live (and work as caretakers) gets sold for real, we have started spending a part of our weekends moving stuff from Manila to Bacoor. My PILs can no longer wait to retire in their hometown in Bohol while the hubby and I look forward to living in Bacoor for good (even if it means waking up early in the morning and enduring the heavy traffic at night 5x a week for work). My SIL Albie is staying with us temporarily.

On Saturday, the hubby and I drove home in Bacoor with a few boxes of our personal stuff and those things that my PILs wanted us to keep (I call them forced inheritance!). On Sunday, he would drive to Manila in the morning and go back to Bacoor with my in-laws along with more stuff in the afternoon (because we like to do our moving slow and steady, haha). We would all return to Manila at night on the same day.

Here are three photos from our moving-oriented weekend:

these Locally juice drinks were on buy 1, take 1 at Puregold Molino last Saturday

I’m currently loving these all-natural, locally-made juice drinks. My top fave is the tamarind one because ang lakas makagising ng childhood memories ko ang lasa nya! I prefer the canned version over the bottled one, though; I noticed that the juice flavor was more pronounced in the former than in the latter.

Have a safe and productive week ahead, friends! 🙂

May you choose happiness always,

  1. Nangasim ako agad upon reading about tamarind juice! Parang ang saraaaap. With the traffic situation in the metro, I think it makes no difference na kung saan nakatira ang mga tao, kahit saan naman kasi traffic na. 🙁 At least sa Bacoor, mas sariwa ang hangin, and mas laidback siguro ang buhay? 🙂

    1. Try the canned one, Jackie! Mas masarap! Yes, compared sa Manila, mas laidback sa Bacoor. At malamig pa ang hangin sa hapon at gabi. Tahimik rin sa village namin, yung tipong 7PM pa lang tulog na mga tao sa street namin, hahaha. Totoo yang sinabi mo about traffic, wala ng pinipiling lugar ngayon, so sad…
