With the hubby still enjoying his sem break at graduate school, we now get to go home in Bacoor on Friday nights. Like last weekend, for instance. But instead of just the two us going home, we had two guests whom we fetched from Market, Market in Taguig City.
Our Bohol-based friend Jan2x (one of the family friends we saw during our short vacation in Bohol last month) and his girl student Damecess were here in Manila for the National Schools Press Conference 2015 which was held in that city last week. We found out that she placed 6th in the Photo Journalism – English category and so we decided to celebrate it by treating them to a late dinner at Midnight Mercato.

We were supposed to have three lady house guests last weekend but only two (Ivy and Rona) showed up. The other one (Edlyn) got stuck with parental duties to two daughters who are big fans of One Direction. (If you know about the big concert at Mall of Asia complex last Saturday night, then you’d know what I mean by that.) Family should always come first and we fully understand that.
Before we went home in Bacoor, the hubby and I, along with Ivy whom we picked up from a 7-Eleven near her house, had dinner at Stella Wood Fired Bistro in BGC. It was a fantastic dinner of whole roasted chicken, Spanish and chorizo rice, some roasted pumpkin, and special lasagna.

Yesterday, I went to SM Aura with the hubby and his family after hearing mass at St. Pio of Pietrelcina Shrine in Libis, QC. SM Aura is the newest mall in town. It’s located at the posh Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It’s right beside two other commercial centers: Market! Market! and Serendra. It was our first time there so we explored it as much as our limited time could allow.
I love the design of SM Aura’s building as it looks so modern and stylish. The shops inside are also nice, although they’re obviously on the pricey side. SM Aura is marketed as a luxury mall, that’s why. When we were strolling around, I couldn’t resist entering the Forever 21 store and ended up buying two basic tops that were on sale. Their accessories section was also filled with beautiful things during our visit. They even had bold and funky rings that look like those college class rings for men except that they look good on women’s fingers, too.
