Weekend Story: Couple Time + Shopping for Birthday and Christmas Gifts

Last weekend flew by swiftly for the hubby and me and we were out most of the time. On Saturday, we drove to Powerplant Mall in Makati because we wanted to buy each other birthday presents (our birthdays are just one week apart). And since it was also our 14th anniversary as a couple last October 18th, anniversary gift na rin daw, haha. I wanted to get a new bag to replace my worn-out and overused Longchamp bag but didn’t find anything that caught my fancy. I was eyeing this particular Coach bag but the price at the store was just too much. I just told the hubby I’d ask a relative abroad who’s vacationing in the US to look for it there. I’m sure mas malaking mura dun! He, on the other hand, was able to get a leather crossbody bag (as birthday/anniversary present from me) which he plans to use when he attends work-related seminars/conferences in and out of town (he has one this week!).

From Makati, we went to Mall of Asia (MOA) to shop some more. I needed a new leather belt and I found a decent one on sale at the department store there. We also heard the anticipated mass at the church near the mall and had a quick dinner at Cafe Via Mare after. Then we drove home in Bacoor to spend the rest of the weekend there. On our way back to Manila on Sunday night, we dropped by S&R Baclaran and upon seeing some buy 1 take 1 deals, we decided to do some early Christmas shopping. Ayun, medyo marami rin naman na-cover sa Christmas gift list namin, hehe.

Below are photos from our weekend:
