Weekend Story: Two Christmas Get-Togethers, A Visit to St. Pio Shrine and A Quick Trip to Divisoria

Last weekend was epic. I had lots of fun and laughter and shared stories and happy memories with the people that matter to me. How I wish this long holiday break won’t end so I’d have the luxury of time to meet up with more people!

On Saturday, I attended two Christmas get-togethers — one with my college friends and the other with my former office colleagues. Both were fun and memorable. I really had a great time.

Weekend Story: Malling and Some Good Finds

While we were able to go home in Bacoor last weekend, we were not able to maximize our stay there. Our weekend was mostly spent malling. The hubby and I both had things to buy and we were happy we found them after visiting two different malls (SM Southmall and Alabang Town Center). Haha.

On Saturday morning, we drove our parents to Naic, Cavite where my family (including the hubby and I) is spending Christmas together. We then headed straight to Bacoor after. By 5:00 p.m., we braved the traffic and went to SM Southmall. My only mission was to go to Uniqlo and buy a pair of pants in my size and preferred color. I’ve been to two Uniqlo branches before this trip and didn’t find what I was looking for. I got lucky this time because it’s available at Uniqlo SM Southmall!

Weekend Story: Makati Trips with Family (Hole in the Wall and Landmark)

Last weekend was spent entirely in Manila. I have an explanation for this — I had to do some Christmas shopping! Plus, the hubby had to attend two Christmas parties (school and office) on Saturday. I even thought I wouldn’t be able to spend time with him on Saturday but fortunately, his schedule suddenly freed up by nighttime. We took advantage of the opportunity and went to Hole in the Wall with my SIL and my brother Danison.

Hole in the Wall is this new foodie destination housed inside Century City Mall on Kalayaan Avenue in Makati. It’s like a big food court, but the posh and cozy kind. It was really spacious we didn’t have a hard time finding a table despite the big crowd during our visit. I heard they’ve just opened recently and so there were only several restaurants serving the diners that night.

Weekend Story: New Godchild, The Maze Runner and Sundate with Family

I only have a few godchildren. I’m not a “mabentang Ninang” like some people I know. But last Saturday, the universe conspired and made me a godmother again. Meet Eliana Jermaine, my newest godchild! She’s the daughter of my officemate Jerry and she was baptized at the Our Lady of Assumption Church in Malate, Manila. Isn’t she a cutie?

After my godmother duty, the hubby and I already drove home in Bacoor. That night, we watched this movie titled “The Maze Runner” on TV via USB. It’s a good movie with powerful acting and unpredictable plot. We enjoyed it so much we’re already looking forward to the next installment. I heard it’s a trilogy and the second movie will be released September of next year.

Weekend Story: Pampering Session, Solaire Casino and Quick Home Visit

Last weekend was short but sweet. My Saturday was spent through a pampering session with Mame and my sister Jodie at this cozy, little salon in Makati called Edwin Lisa Salon. Well, it’s more like we just had our hair fixed there and we got very satisfied with the results. You may read more about our experience and see our hair makeovers here.

Madam Edelweiza, LOL

The hubby and I, on our way to Bacoor, stopped over at Solaire Resort and Casino. We wanted to try our luck at the casino by playing roulette. We don’t know much about the game; we just know about its “color betting” feature. That is, placing bets on the red or the black could win us the same amount as our bet. Easy to understand, right?
