Last weekend was quiet and quick. Haha. We spent as early as Friday night in Bacoor and dedicated much of our time watching Suits (our current fave TV series) on Netflix, eating, cuddling, and doing household chores. We went to the mall on Saturday afternoon to do some grocery shopping and pick up some summer-related stuff. On Sunday, we made a quick trip to Batangas to hear the 9:30AM mass at Lipa Cathedral in Lipa City before driving to the next town, Mataas na Kahoy, to attend the christening of my officemate’s second baby (the first one is my godchild!). From there, we went straight home in Manila and even got to do some malling at Robinsons Place Manila with my in-laws before calling it a day.
I only have a few godchildren. I’m not a “mabentang Ninang” like some people I know. But last Saturday, the universe conspired and made me a godmother again. Meet Eliana Jermaine, my newest godchild! She’s the daughter of my officemate Jerry and she was baptized at the Our Lady of Assumption Church in Malate, Manila. Isn’t she a cutie?
After my godmother duty, the hubby and I already drove home in Bacoor. That night, we watched this movie titled “The Maze Runner” on TV via USB. It’s a good movie with powerful acting and unpredictable plot. We enjoyed it so much we’re already looking forward to the next installment. I heard it’s a trilogy and the second movie will be released September of next year.
I don’t know if I have already mentioned in this blog that the boyfriend has 36 god children. Perhaps, I have done so in one of my other blogs. He’s just 30 years old so I bet this would still increase. When we became steady, I started to become part of his being a good god father. I would often accompany him to gift shops to buy gifts. I have become used to doing this through the years.
The internet has made this gift buying routine easier. (I said ‘routine’ because it happens quite frequently, like every other month or so.) Actually, it’s also more convenient and fun this time. We now buy his gifts to his god children online. If it’s for Christmas, we get the gifts by the bulk. If it’s for baptismal celebrations and we need baby gifts, we go to some local online gift shops and when he has the funds, we check out Personal Creations baby. This online baby shopping site has so much to offer when it comes to unique and personalized baby gifts. You just have to choose the stuff you fancy, pay for them thru credit card or Paypal and you’re good to go.
