Weekend Story: Mother’s Day Celebration + National Elections 2019

Last long weekend was busy but fun and meaningful. It was Mother’s Day on Sunday so I planned something special for Mame. She just wanted to take a dip in the pool (she loves to swim float, lol) but I wanted more for her because she deserved it. I initially wanted to take her to the beach but the beach resorts we liked in Batangas were mostly fully booked. There were open slots for day tours but the hubby said nakakapagod mag-drive at di sulit kung balikan lang kami. I looked some more until I came across this Mother’s Day promo posted on the FB page of Batangas Country Club (BCC) which consisted of an overnight stay for a family of four with breakfast and a free dinner buffet and massage for mom, all for just PhP4,500 nett. It was a great deal so I booked it right away. It turned out to be a relaxing staycation for Mame, my sister Jodie, the hubby, and me.

Weekend Story: Embracing Simplicity

Last weekend was quiet and simple. We stayed home to rest. We went out of the house to do some errands and unwind a bit. We spent time with my extended family. We took care of and were amused by Jasper our pet dog. It was kinda fun and invigorating.

I just love simple weekends. I actually don’t like making many weekend plans. I prefer going with the flow or just following where the hubby wants to go. I get excited with spontaneous trips to places I haven’t been to. But as much as possible, I want to limit my activities to going to the wet market and cooking, activities I enjoy doing most. I also enjoy cleaning up my stuff (read: decluttering) but it’s something I want to prepare for, mentally and physically, so I could give my best to it and see good results.

Weekend Story: Office Team Building at Eagle Point Resort in Anilao + Family Time in Bacoor

Last weekend came early to me and my officemates. We had our office team building on April 25-26, 2019 at Eagle Point Resort in Anilao, Mabini, Batangas. I then spent the rest of the weekend with the hubby, my SIL, and my extended family in Bacoor.

The 2D1N stay in Anilao was a good one. We swam and snorkelled, we ate and drank. We even got to rent the videoke machine at the resort and sing to our hearts’ content. Fun times!

Weekend Story: Cooling Down At Home

Last weekend was steady. The weather was still very hot and it didn’t help that I still had to move around the house to get things done. But everything was manageable naman despite the fact that the hubby wasn’t around. He got lucky and was able to travel to Bohol for a short vacay. He missed his parents so much and there was no better time to go. As for me, I got left behind with our pet dog Jasper. I couldn’t join the hubby because of the tight sched in our office, so sad.

Weekend Story: S&R Members’ Treat + Tako Ibaraki Bacoor + Manam MOA + His and Hers Coach Bags

Last weekend was fantastic. The hubby and I spent Friday night joining the throng of people at S&R Baclaran for the annual Members’ Treat. (We were also with my brother Dan who hitched a ride with us.) Despite the “sale” temptations, we only got what we needed and could pay for because takot kami sa utang, hahaha.
