Weekend Story: Family Time + Binondo Church + Quick Trip to Divisoria

Last weekend flew by fast and the hubby and I were fine by it. After all, we both felt rested and we got to do stuff. On Saturday, we stayed home and bonded with my extended family. On Sunday, we, along with SIL Albie, went to Binondo Church and Divisoria. Then we had dinner at Side Walk Fud Hub with my SIL and my two sisters Jodie and Nyam.

In Divisoria, I tried looking for shower curtains and Mame’s house clothes (mahigpit ang bilin nya, yung terno daw dapat!) but didn’t find any of them. I ended up buying things for myself instead (which was bad for my wallet). I got new undies and this popular Bali bag whose front design I couldn’t resist. Haaay, parang ang hina ng EQ ko this year! Parang gusto ko na tuloy ulit magshopping fast, haha.

Weekend Story: Monasterio de Santa Clara Katipunan+ Pelina Shoes Marikina + Din Tai Fung BGC + ATC with Family

Last weekend was quite an adventure. On Saturday, the hubby and I drove to Monasterio de Santa Clara in Katipunan to say some prayers. From there, we went all the way to Marikina to go shoe shopping at Pelina Shoes. It’s a shoe factory/shoe shop that sells women’s ballet flats, mules, sandals, and slippers in various designs. (We also saw a few pairs of loafers for men there.) We then headed for BGC to take our chance with Shake Shack but ended up dining at Din Tai Fung because the queue at the former was super long, as in.

Weekend Story: At Work in Baguio City

Last weekend was a working one. Our office director and I went up to Baguio City for a work mission which turned out fine. There was heavy traffic on our way back to Manila but it was bearable and we were able to get home safe. I missed Baguio, the sights, the smell, the food, and of course, the cool weather. I was glad to have been back even for an overnight stay only.

Weekend Story: Family Time + House Renovation Preps

Last weekend was quite hectic. On Saturday, the hubby and I did household chores in the morning, went to church in the afternoon, and spent the night watching Netflix at home. On Sunday, we accompanied my extended family in purchasing materials for their house renovation courtesy of my sister Jodie. They even bought a new aircon unit because the old one they were using (which was sort of donated to them by my FIL) was acting up already. The time we spent at Wilcon Depot Bacoor and Alabang Town Center were both productive and pleasurable.
