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: Rainy Season is Here

Last weekend was predominantly rainy in Bacoor. That’s why the hubby and I did the best thing of staying at home all weekend, haha. Like we only went out to go to the wet market to buy fresh produce, hear mass, and try out this new resto of his car clubmate at Camella Springville (also in Bacoor). The resto’s name is Covelandia Steakhouse and it serves cheap but yummy steaks and equally yummy mashed potatoes. We highly recommend the place because gravy pa lang nila, ulam na!

Weekend Story: A Long Weekend For Some

Because we’re both working in Manila, the hubby and I were one of the few who had a long weekend last weekend because Monday (June 24th) is Manila Day and Manila Day is a holiday in the whole city of Manila. Ang gulo ba ng sinabi ko?Basta, yun na yun, hahaha. Anyway, we mostly spent the weekend at home except for the time we went out for dinner at this new resto near our place and visited Starbucks Vermosa (along Daang Hari, the one with restrooms that have access codes) with my extended family. It was a fun and relaxing long weekend filled with happy memories created with our loved ones, just the way we wanted it.

Weekend Story: Family Time + Binondo Church + Quick Trip to Divisoria

Last weekend flew by fast and the hubby and I were fine by it. After all, we both felt rested and we got to do stuff. On Saturday, we stayed home and bonded with my extended family. On Sunday, we, along with SIL Albie, went to Binondo Church and Divisoria. Then we had dinner at Side Walk Fud Hub with my SIL and my two sisters Jodie and Nyam.

In Divisoria, I tried looking for shower curtains and Mame’s house clothes (mahigpit ang bilin nya, yung terno daw dapat!) but didn’t find any of them. I ended up buying things for myself instead (which was bad for my wallet). I got new undies and this popular Bali bag whose front design I couldn’t resist. Haaay, parang ang hina ng EQ ko this year! Parang gusto ko na tuloy ulit magshopping fast, haha.

Weekend Story: Embracing Simplicity

Last weekend was quiet and simple. We stayed home to rest. We went out of the house to do some errands and unwind a bit. We spent time with my extended family. We took care of and were amused by Jasper our pet dog. It was kinda fun and invigorating.

I just love simple weekends. I actually don’t like making many weekend plans. I prefer going with the flow or just following where the hubby wants to go. I get excited with spontaneous trips to places I haven’t been to. But as much as possible, I want to limit my activities to going to the wet market and cooking, activities I enjoy doing most. I also enjoy cleaning up my stuff (read: decluttering) but it’s something I want to prepare for, mentally and physically, so I could give my best to it and see good results.
