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?

Weekend Story: Alabang Stroll with Friends

Somehow, I felt that last weekend was kinda short (bitin in Filipino slang). On Saturday night, the hubby and I along with our two good friends Nice and Melay drove to Alabang for a stroll before going home in Bacoor.

First, we dropped by Alabang Town Center (ATC) to have my phone battery replaced. It was free of charge because the battery was part of a batch being recalled for safety-related defects. We got my phone back the next day (kudos to the Switch team for the fast service!).

Weekend Story: Fun Saturday and Productive Sunday

Last weekend was spent entirely in Manila. The hubby had classes on Saturday and I had to go to work yesterday so we ditched the idea of spending the weekend in Bacoor. It turned out to be a good decision because we had ample time to spend with our respective families.

On Saturday, while the hubby was getting to know his new teachers and classmates at the university (read: first day of classes), I crossed the street and went to my siblings’ place to bond with my family.
