Weekend Story: Charity Bike Ride for Him, Girl Bonding for Her

Last weekend was active and fun (for the hubby) and quiet and fun (for me). The hubby went to Makati on Saturday morning to finish an errand while I opted not to accompany him and just stay home to get more sleep. We drove to Bacoor on Saturday night with Mame and my sister Jodie.

So, the next morning, the hubby joined this bikers group for a charity ride to Tagaytay. He left early at past 5AM and returned home at past 7PM. He was out the entire day and came back exhausted but happy (I guess). I, on the other hand, had a girl bonding at home with two of my favorite girls in the world.

Weekend Story: Hospital Staycation + Biking + Family Bonding

Last weekend took us by surprise. On Friday night, we had a “hospital staycation” because my FIL suddenly got sick. He had a vomiting episode and was having severe stomach cramps. My MIL accompanied him to the hospital to see his kidney doctor (he’s been taking meds for kidney stones because he’s been refusing to undergo surgery since 2013) for fear that the kidney stones themselves were the culprit. After asking my FIL some questions, the doctor ordered his admission to the hospital for further observation and just so he wouldn’t get dehydrated as he looked pale already.

My FIL got admitted to the hospital on Friday night and was discharged after 24 hours. Apparently, he just had a case of indigestion and his kidney stones didn’t have anything to do with it. Thank goodness for that! Haaay, buti na lang talaga kasi nagpa-panic na ang panganay nya (a.k.a. the hubby). I’d like to assume we all had a good night’s sleep on Saturday night after a short stay at the hospital.

Weekend Story: Mall of Asia + UP Diliman + Manila Ocean Park

Last weekend primarily revolved around these three places: Mall of Asia, UP Diliman, and Manila Ocean Park. The hubby and I didn’t go home in Bacoor intentionally so we could spend more time with our family and friends here in Manila. We were glad to have made such a decision because it turned out to be beneficial not just for our body but also for our soul.

Mall of Asia (MOA)

The hubby didn’t have classes in grad school so we were able to go biking in MOA on Saturday morning. His officemate Giannie joined us there, too. We had breakfast together at our fave Biker’s Cafe before going home.

Weekend Story: Father’s Day Celebration + A Few Other Stuff

Last weekend was memorable and fun. We spent time with family and created lots of happy memories with them. We were truly grateful for everything.

The hubby was back to school again on Saturday for his final stint in grad school. If things will go well, he’ll graduate in October. We’re both crossing our fingers on that.

Weekend Story: Work, Work, Work…

I had a work weekend while the hubby spent his doing the things he loves most — biking, getting online, doing the laundry, eating, and sleeping. I have no regrets, though, because work is work. It’s something you do because once upon a time, you signed your contract and committed yourself to it in exchange for money and career advancement. If your job happens to be something you love doing, then consider yourself lucky (I know I am!).

So, the hubby and I weren’t able to go home in Bacoor. I went to work on both days (Saturday and Sunday) as we had a big event we needed to be very prepared for. The event happened on Sunday morning at 10AM which was actually a gathering of the highest ranking officials in the country, members of the diplomatic corps, and people from the civil society to celebrate the 118th Philippine Independence Day. The event turned out to be a success.
