Weekend Story: Rizal Road Trip (Antipolo + Taytay)

The hubby and I hit the road again on Sunday. This time around, we were with Mame and my sister Jodie. After spending Friday night and the whole of Saturday in Bacoor, we traveled to Antipolo on Sunday morning to hear mass and light some candles for our personal intentions. The Shrine of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage was teeming with people during our visit. And somehow we felt good just by being with them as we heard the mass and said our individual prayers. It was a unanimous decision to buy some suman sa ibos and adobong kasuy after leaving the church. We intentionally looked for the stall of a friend’s cousin so we could get a discount on our purchase, hahaha.

From Antipolo, we drove to Taytay to have lunch and found Canterberry Bar and Restaurant via Zomato app. We had simple but delicious meals at affordable prices. We also grant Mame’s request to shop at Taytay Tiangge. All four of us ended up taking home a bag of clothes each, with my sister Jodie having the most number of items bought (as I had expected).

Weekend Story: 5th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Our fifth wedding anniversary called for a celebration and deserved a long weekend so the hubby and I both filed for a leave last Friday. We then checked into Acacia Hotel in Alabang for a staycation (just what we needed after an exhausting work week!). Acacia Hotel didn’t disappoint, from the room accommodation and hotel facilities to the friendly service and breakfast buffet. Everything was beyond what we expected so we ended up having an awesome overnight stay. The rest of our weekend was spent with family: malling with my in-laws on Saturday night and driving up to Antipolo to hear mass and having a family dinner at Robinsons Place Ermita on Sunday. It was a fun weekend and we are grateful for the happy memories created and shared.

Here are several photos depicting our weekend activities:
