Last long weekend was steady and quiet. We just left the house on Saturday night to dine out and celebrate my MIL’s 71st birthday and spent the rest of the weekend at home. Oh, except for the hubby who had to go to work on Monday for an important task that needed to be done on time.
The hubby and I were in two locations last weekend. Of course, Bacoor is a given. On Saturday, we celebrated Mame’s 65th birthday at their place next door. She invited some friends and neighbors over. Her nephew Kuya Neil and his family (they’re the ones based in Mandaluyong that we occasionally visit) also came to celebrate with us. It was a good celebration and we had lots of fun. We were also thankful to Mame’s guests for coming to her lunch party despite the rains and the flood they encountered on their way to Bacoor and in the city itself.
On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with my parents and my sister Jodie, attended the christening of our cousin’s baby in Pasig. The reception was held at Comida China de Manila along C5 Road. There we saw many relatives from my father’s side of the family. Ayun, kamustahan at kwentuhang walang humpay! Nag-enjoy kami lahat at umuwing masasaya. We even got to pay a visit to the St. Pio Shrine at Libis on our way home to light some candles.
So I guess now that we’re neighbors in Bacoor, I’ll get to spend more quality time with my family than ever. It’s a great feeling knowing that they’re literally closer to us. I can easily check on my parents and siblings and enjoy all the perks (and maybe even some challenges, too!) that come with living close to our loved ones.
One thing I love about this new set up is the sharing of food or meals. Because I now watch what I eat to maintain my “small” frame (naks, Edel!), even if I cook up a big batch of food, they’d get finished in no time and won’t have to stay long in the ref. The hubby is the happiest here because he no longer has to eat the same viand for three consecutive mealtimes, hahaha.
Last weekend was easy breezy and started early for the hubby and me. On Friday night, we met up with friends to celebrate the birthday of our friend Raffy. He’s the chairman of a barangay here in Manila and he just turned 39. From our meeting place which was their barangay hall, we transferred to a nearby restaurant to have dinner and some wine. We were a group of six and we spent time until a little past midnight. From the restaurant, the hubby and I drove to Bacoor and stayed there until Sunday night.
Last long weekend was all about celebrating and bonding with friends. On Saturday, I was at Via Mare, MOA Arena Annex during lunchtime for the christening of my college friend’s son. From there, the hubby and I went home in Bacoor and that night, we had a date at Evia Lifestyle Center because the hubby wanted to see the latest Transformers movie in the cinema house. But not before going to the church because the hubby’s religious like that. By Sunday, we drove back to Manila and attended the hubby’s cousin’s son’s birthday at Jollibee Grace Park in Caloocan City with my in-laws. We spent Monday just at home doing household chores and taking lots of rest.
