Weekend Story: Homebound

Last weekend was spent mostly at home. It was another boring weekend that we enjoyed to the fullest. I am actually thankful for the opportunity to laze around and rest. Aside from cooking our meals, I just went the Netflix-and-chill route the entire Saturday, hahaha. I got to finish a TV series and still had time to play games (Tongits and Toy Blast) on my iPad Mini. Meanwhile, my extended family (except for my father who opted to stay home) was having a grand time at some posh resort in Puerto Galera for our cousin’s birthday celebration.

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: 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.

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.
