Weekend Story: Captain Marvel Movie Date and Get-Together with the Legardas

Last weekend was quite busy, event-wise. On Saturday, the hubby and I took care of household chores (this included giving our dog Jasper a bath and going to the wet market with Mame) and some errands. I also got to go on a movie date with Mame and my sister Jodie. Captain Marvel was entertaining and we were wowed by Brie Larson’s character’s amazing powers, ha! The movie was good, at least in our collective opinion. Movie reviews online say otherwise, though.

On Sunday, I got to do some laundry (one month’s worth of my office clothes!) in the morning and joined the hubby and my SIL Albie in going to Manila Polo Club in Makati in the afternoon for a get-together with our former bosses — the Legardas. There were lots of laughter, conversation, picture-taking, and of course, food…and for a moment, I forgot I was on a diet, hahaha.

Weekend Story: A Christening, A Birthday, and A Few Other Stuff

Last long weekend was quite hectic. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, went to the wet market in the morning to buy fresh produce. We also drove to Alabang in the afternoon to hear mass and go malling. Actually, it was just Mame and I who roamed around Alabang Town Center (ATC) because the hubby met up with his car club friends at this restaurant within the Filinvest area and he just picked us up at the mall when it was time for us to go home.

On Sunday, our first activity was the christening of a friend’s miracle baby scheduled around lunchtime. (The event was filled with good vibes and I even cried a little hearing the very emotional prayer of our friend mostly expressing her immense joy for finally having a child after so many years of trying to conceive. God really has wonderful plans for all of us!) We would then join the family at night for the birthday dinner of my brother Dan at…where else but our new fave Betoy’s Restaurant Molino! 😛

Weekend Story: Chillax in Bacoor

Last weekend was all about family bonding. The hubby and I went to the wet market along with Mame on Saturday morning. We would then go to SM Molino in the afternoon to buy some supplies, this time with my SIL Albie. The three of us also heard the anticipated mass that night at this church near our place and met up with Mame and my sister Jodie for dinner at Betoy’s Restaurant Molino after. Mame worked last Valentine’s Day at her friend’s flower shop in Kawit and she used a portion of her income to treat us (she insisted). When it’s Mame’s treat, it’s sky’s the limit, kaya ang saya-saya, hahaha. Buti na lang, affordable sa Betoy’s at masarap pa!

Weekend Story: Gardening with the Mabalays

Last weekend was quiet and chill. I started Saturday by giving Jasper (the friendly dog) a bath. (He gets a bath every Saturday morning, provided I got enough sleep the night before, hehe.) Mame and I went to the palengke right after. We would then go to church, along with the hubby and my SIL Albie, in the afternoon to hear the anticipated mass.

On Sunday, the hubby and I drove my sister Jodie to her dorm. She opted for this arrangement because she hasn’t adjusted to the Bacoor-Manila-Bacoor commuting situation yet. We were also with Mame and my SIL. Mame wanted to take a look at her youngest child’s dorm kasi. Si SIL naman, nagkaroon ng stroke scare kaya sugod sila ni hubby sa St. Luke’s QC! Buti na lang, false alarm pala. Apparently, it was just a frozen shoulder (thank God!). We would then go back to Bacoor in the afternoon without Jodie but with my brother Dan because I asked him to buy some plant pots in Divisoria for our gardening session later.
