Weekend Story: Mercado del Lago in Bicutan, Taguig City

Last weekend was a-okay. The hubby and I got to go home in Bacoor as early as Friday night. On Saturday, we went out to go to Alabang Town Center (ATC), say a prayer at the church beside it, and check out Mercado del Lago in Bicutan, Taguig City. We would go back to Manila on Sunday noon to have lunch with my in-laws at SM Manila and we would sleep earlier than usual to prepare ourselves physically for the coming work week.

Weekend Story: Rainy, Windy, and Muddy

Last weekend was not so bad despite the onslaught of the typhoon (Ompong) and its aftermath. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night and went back to Manila on Sunday night. We were just at home doing household chores, eating, Netflix-ing, and cuddling because, maginaw, hahaha. When the rains and the winds stopped on Saturday afternoon (but it was muddy everywhere!), we went out of the house to do all these stuff: hear the anticipated mass, refuel the car, buy water, have dinner at Betoy’s restaurant (Molino branch), go to Evia (the mall), and get some supplies at Rustan’s supermarket located in the same mall.

Weekend Story: CSC R.A.C.E. to Serve Fun Run 2018 + Cafe Lidia + Taytay Tiangge

Last weekend was quite hectic but fun, exhausting but filled with happy memories. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night and stayed there overnight. We were back in Manila on Saturday night. We would then spend Sunday doing some worthwhile activities: fun running for me and biking for the hubby, dining at Cafe Lidia in Marikina with my in-laws, and shopping at the popular Taytay Tiangge with them as well.

Weekend Story: Chillax in Bacoor + Holidate in Makati with Our Two Mommas

Last long weekend was kinda relaxing and fun. The hubby and I, along with Mame, were in Bacoor as early as Friday night. Aside from a few trips to the wet market and the supermarket, we just spent Saturday and Sunday at home. The hubby went out on Saturday night to meet up with his car club friends while Mame and I stayed home and kept each other company. We drove back to Manila on Sunday night and spent our Monday afternoon in Makati for a holidate with our two mommas. We just had dinner at Via Mare Greenbelt 1 and did a bit of window shopping. We also dropped by Landmark supermarket to buy some supplies. Time spent with family is indeed worth every second. Here’s to more weekends with our loved ones!

Weekend Story: Moving Slow and Steady

As it’s only a matter of weeks (or months) before the property where my PILs live (and work as caretakers) gets sold for real, we have started spending a part of our weekends moving stuff from Manila to Bacoor. My PILs can no longer wait to retire in their hometown in Bohol while the hubby and I look forward to living in Bacoor for good (even if it means waking up early in the morning and enduring the heavy traffic at night 5x a week for work). My SIL Albie is staying with us temporarily.

On Saturday, the hubby and I drove home in Bacoor with a few boxes of our personal stuff and those things that my PILs wanted us to keep (I call them forced inheritance!). On Sunday, he would drive to Manila in the morning and go back to Bacoor with my in-laws along with more stuff in the afternoon (because we like to do our moving slow and steady, haha). We would all return to Manila at night on the same day.
