Last weekend was super fun, memorable, and meaningful. It was baby NJ’s first birthday on Sunday, after all. As what we had planned out, we had a small party at the condo attended only by family. We brought drinks (and the whole house!) to the condo and had food delivered from various sources. We also hired a photographer (thanks again kuya Raul Mansilungan of Love Photography!) who took tons of beautiful photos of our simple celebration.
The hubby and I were exhausted after the party but we were so so happy our rainbow baby is now one. From having an infant, we now have a toddler, yay! Where has the time gone?

Last weekend was epic. It was one of those weekends that we had lots of couple and family time. The hubby and I intentionally extended our weekend by taking a leave from work on Monday. Saya-saya! We stayed overnight in Bacoor on Saturday. We then went on a road trip to the south on Sunday where we passed through Kaybiang Tunnel in Ternate that’s popular among bikers and motorcylists, visited the lovely Saint Francisco Xavier Church and discovered a fantastic Italian restaurant called La Locanda Ristorante Pizzeria in Nasugbu, and experienced a foggy Tagaytay on our way back to Manila. It was pure bliss traveling a total of 187km, definitely worth every minute of our time together.
On Monday, the hubby and I did some errand at GSIS head office in Pasay and spent the rest of the day in Mall of Asia (MOA) because, malling. We also met with my SIL Albie there for a dinner at this new resto called Hawker Chan. Like their original branch in Singapore, they offer the world’s cheapest Michelin star meal that is the soya chicken rice (PhP128). We loved it!

Last weekend was busy. On Saturday noon, the hubby and I, along with Mame, my brother Dan and my sister Nyam, attended the birthday party of my cousin’s child held at their house in Mandaluyong. From there, the hubby and I joined his car club’s seventh anniversary celebration held at a local bar (also in Mandaluyong). Team Accent Philippines (TAP) is a fellowship of Hyundai Accent car owners from all over the country. They have these what they call “eye balls” where they gather in one place to socialize and exchange car-related news, promos, products, and services. These days, I only get to accompany the hubby during his car club’s big events. I’d rather stay home to NetFlix and chill pag walang pasok sa work. Oo, kinain na rin ako ng sistema, hahaha. 😛
In other news, the hubby and I have recently started to move our things from Manila to Bacoor because we may be living there for good sooner than later. On Sunday morning, we already took some boxes to Bacoor. We also brought our old sala set in Bacoor to my parents’ place in Naic. We were joined by Mame and my brother Dan in this trip as we needed more pairs of hands in carrying stuff. We were done by 4PM and drove straight back to Manila for my PILs’ wedding anniversary dinner. They’ve been married for 47 years already kaya naman isa sila sa mga couples na #relationshipgoals namin ng asawa ko.

Two things that marked the past weekend for the hubby and me: a shopping trip and a birthday party.
On Saturday, we went to Landmark Makati with my MIL and my SIL to look for ready-made long gowns. We are attending a wedding next month and the dress code says “formal.” Like black tie and long gown kind of formal. I am used to wearing short dresses during weddings so this is going to be a new experience for me. Nakakapagsuot naman ako ng long gown sa work pero laging black. Tingnan natin kung kayanin ng powers ko ang magsuot ng long gown na hindi black bilang kasal ito. Haha.

Getting to Bacoor on a Friday night has been our routine the past weekends. The hubby and I are enjoying his break at graduate school while it lasts. Last weekend was no exception. We left Manila at past 8PM (to avoid traffic) and reached Bacoor in less than an hour.
It was great to see our home again despite the massive amount of dust covering our tiny balcony. I heard it came from the ongoing construction at the new village next to ours. No biggie as it was something the hubby wouldn’t mind cleaning up the next day.

I’ve always enjoyed attending kiddie parties, may it be held in a posh restaurant, a fast food store, a club house or even just at home. I actually dream of hosting a birthday party for my future kid. If I could have it my way, I want it to be a DIY kind of party, with beautiful things scattered all over the place. Oh well, that’s just the creative and fun-loving momma in me.
Kiddie parties are fun. The program, the parlor games, the birthday wishes, the blowing of candles on the birthday cake, the singing of the universal Happy Birthday song to the celebrant, everything about a kiddie party spells of fun and happy moments that last a lifetime. I can’t wait for the time that I’ll be sharing this wonderful experience with my future kid.
