Last weekend was spent with family here in Manila. The hubby and I opted not to drive home in Bacoor primarily because we got invited to the “last hurrah” party on Sunday at the Legarda Mansion where my PILs work. The property, formerly known as La Cocina de Tita Moning (where I used to work as a part-time tour guide) has been sold and the family decided to throw a sort of farewell bash. It was attended by their close friends and it was definitely an honor and a privilege for us to have been asked to be there, too. It was a magical and touching night. While there were some tears shed, the party was mostly fun and memorable with lots of food, booze, laughter, chatter, singing, and dancing. Awwww, I will terribly miss that place which has served as home for the hubby’s family for decades!
Our Saturday was laid back. I spent it mostly sleeping and playing with our pet Jasper (the friendly dog). The hubby, on the other hand, went out to meet with his car club friends at this car show (Manila International Auto Show 2018) at World Trade Center in Pasay. On Sunday morning, we got to go on a road trip to Regina RICA (Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia) in Tanay, Rizal. The place was peaceful and solemn albeit packed with people. We were glad to have experienced it for the first time. On our way back to my PILs’ place, we had a late lunch at Lutong Pugon nestled in the house of this local painter named Jun Tiongco which is just around two kilometers from Regina RICA.

Last weekend was hectic. We attended several events on Saturday: Hyundai’s National Car Wash Day at Hyundai Quezon Avenue, Manila International Auto Show (MAIS) 2017 at the World Trade Center, and Team Accent Philippines’ (TAP) members meet up at Vikings Mall of Asia (MOA). We also squeezed in a visit to the Uber offices in Taft Avenue Avenue and One-Ecom MOA, to submit the hubby’s requirements. Yes, he applied to be an Uber partner and got accepted. He will do it on a part-time basis and he’s already excited about his first trip, hahaha. On Sunday, we drove to Tagaytay to unwind before heading back to Manila that same day.
Below are some photos that describe our weekend:

As the title suggests, those three things were the highlights of last weekend for the hubby and me. They got us preoccupied and happy and before we knew it, the weekend was over and a new work week has arrived.
The hubby is fascinated with cars. Well, actually, most men are. He didn’t wanna miss the Manila International Auto Show happening from April 7-10, 2016 at the World Trade Center so he planned our Saturday well and included going there in it. While I am a supportive wife, I also try to negotiate for my personal gain. This time, it was a dinner at the resto of my choosing and a couple of minutes of (window) shopping at the nearby Mall of Asia (MOA). So, we had a deal and we were both happy. Haha.

We had quite a long weekend. Long, in the sense that, the passing of time felt so slow on Saturday. Or so I assumed. It was the opposite on Sunday, though. The hubby and I got too busy with some activities that before we knew it, it was time to go to bed already.
We stayed in Manila because the hubby had to go on an overnight trip with his masteral class. It was like their field trip cum summer outing. He left on Saturday morning and I got sick the night before. It was just a slight fever (37.6°C) and a few hours after taking a Tempra Forte tablet, I got well already (36.4°C). The cause of my slight fever? Body pains from excessive exercise (zumba + walking) last holiday! Yes, I learned my lesson the hard way. Ouch.
