Weekend Story: Scorching Hot Summer

Last weekend was scorching hot! It seems summer in the Philippines is getting hotter than ever. Kamusta naman ang aming Meralco bill neto dahil sa aircon at electric fan? Even our pet, Jasper the friendly dog, felt the intense heat inside and outside our house. Except for the trip to the wet market and the church and to this newly-opened restaurant that a friend recommended to me, we intentionally didn’t go out for fear of getting torched. We just busied ourselves with household chores and food and Netflix because heller…Netflix is life, hahaha.

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.

Weekend Story: Baguio Trip + Bacoor Visit

I was in Baguio last Friday and Saturday for work and so the hubby and I only got to drive home in Bacoor on Saturday night after I arrived in Manila from Baguio. We spent the rest of the weekend just taking some rest and finishing some errands.

Our event in Baguio was a success (thank God!). It was super cold there during our visit (we were a group of five). Balita ko umabot pa ng 8 degrees Celsius nung madaling araw ng Sabado, buti na lang tulog pa ako nun at nakabalot ng comforter sa hotel, hahaha. But I enjoyed Baguio so much I wanted to go back this summer!

Weekend Story: Home Sweet Home with My In-Laws

One of the perks of staying in our Bacoor home during weekends is we get to practice being husband and wife. You know, just the two of us doing things together. Having house guests, however, has its own advantages. Like when my in-laws join us in Bacoor, for instance, and life suddenly becomes easier. You see, my MIL is very fond of doing household chores. Whenever she’s visiting us, she wouldn’t stop until she sees the whole house spick and span. Actually, she hates clutter so much that when she was still working at the restaurant, she would spend her days off staying at home and just cleaning up their house. She gets satisfied and happy doing just that. Now that she’s semi-retired, she still does a lot of cleaning (at their place here in Manila and at ours in Bacoor). I hope I inherit her “kasipagan” one day. Haha.
