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!

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.

Last weekend gave the hubby and I lots of happy memories. For one, we were with our family and friends doing fun stuff. By fun stuff, I mean chatting, eating, drinking, laughing, goofing around, and just being there for each other. We wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Just like how each weekend should be, ours started on Friday night when we met up again with the hubby’s high school barkada at our new fave hang-out place, Borderline Food Park (BPF) in Mandaluyong City. It was our friend Vanessa’s birthday and we celebrated with her amidst the cheery crowd of BFP.

My husband is a big fan of Japanese food. Seafood allergy aside, he tries to eat Japanese food as often as he can with eyes on the safe options. In Bacoor, there’s this tiny Japanese restaurant that we visit on weekends because 1) we like their food 2) we like their good service 3) we like the tiny but well-kept space 4) the food prices are so cheap and 5) it’s just a 5-minute car ride (or a good walking distance) from our place.
The name of the restaurant is Ume-ya. It’s located on Mambog Road, a few steps away from the Total gas station and the Jollibee store along Molino Boulevard. Ever since a blogger friend (who also lives in Bacoor) mentioned it on FB, we’ve dined there thrice already and have always been satisfied. I’m not really into Japanese food as I’m a Chinese food enthusiast but so far, I share these dishes with the hubby as favorites: kani salad, California maki, katsudon, beef teriyaki, and shoyu ramen.

Dinner tonight was sponsored by the hubby. We dined at the newly-opened Chic-Boy restaurant housed inside the 678 Commercial Center, a business complex located just a few blocks from where we live. We feasted on Cebu lechon manok and liempo. Food was good. And cheap, too.

Since they’ve just opened recently, we expected that the service would be quite awful. We weren’t disappointed. Our orders arrived late, but we liked the fact the crew were apologetic and friendly. They would gladly receive requests for water and rice (they serve unlimited rice there!) and try to deliver them as soon as they could.
