Weekend Story: Breakfast at Antonio’s + Gringo Chicken and Ribs

Last weekend was all about enjoying good food and good company. First, there was Breakfast at Antonio’s in Tagaytay where the hubby and I, along with my youngest sister Jodie, had a hearty brunch on Sunday morning. Then, there was the newly-opened Gringo Chicken and Ribs at SM Manila where we had a nice dinner with my in-laws on the same day upon our return to Manila. I, therefore, conclude that this weekend made me bigger than ever, hahaha. Diet, we shall meet again tomorrow! 😛

Weekend Story: Islas Pinas + Virgin Lab Fest 14

Last weekend was highlighted by experiences that were a delight to the senses. On Saturday, the hubby and I checked out the newest food park in town — Islas Pinas at Double Dragon Plaza in Pasay City. Then we, along with my brother Dan, watched the Set D (composed of three independent plays) of the Virgin Lab Fest XIV held at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) before driving home in Bacoor. We would meet up with my in-laws to dine at Islas Pinas again on Sunday night before going back to Manila.

Weekend Story: Easy Breezy

Last weekend was easy breezy and started early for the hubby and me. On Friday night, we met up with friends to celebrate the birthday of our friend Raffy. He’s the chairman of a barangay here in Manila and he just turned 39. From our meeting place which was their barangay hall, we transferred to a nearby restaurant to have dinner and some wine. We were a group of six and we spent time until a little past midnight. From the restaurant, the hubby and I drove to Bacoor and stayed there until Sunday night.

Weekend Story: TAP Event + Slow Sunday in Bacoor

Last weekend flew by fast. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby in attending his car club’s 6th anniversary grand eye ball held at Googel restaurant in Mandaluyong City. There we met more than 600 members (most of them with +1’s, too) of Team Accent Philippines (TAP). The event was fun and came complete with production numbers and raffle draws. I think we reached Bacoor just before midnight. Our Sunday started late. We skipped going to church this time and just stayed home to rest until it was time to go back to Manila at night. Oh, I also did some workout in the morning pala because I felt I have gotten so big already.*sigh*

Weekend Story: Mame’s Birthday + PILs’ Wedding Anniversary

Last weekend was highlighted by some small accomplishments and big milestones. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night. Our Saturday was easy breezy. As promised, the delivery guys arrived in our house at around noon with our new ref (first ref we bought since we got married!). By nighttime, we went to the supermarket to buy supplies so we had something to put inside our new appliance. It was kinda funny because we were both thrilled as if it was our first time to go grocery shopping. Haha.

Our Sunday morning was spent hearing mass and our afternoon, watching movies from the hubby’s recently-acquired gadget called Mi box (where you get to have unlimited access to movies, TV series, docus, videos, and a lot more provided you have good internet access). We were back in Manila on Sunday night to have dinner with our family at Cabalen SM Manila. It was Mame’s birthday on that day and it’s my PILs wedding anniversary today so we decided to do a double celebration.
