Weekend Story: Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019 Celebrations

The past holidays were quite special and memorable for us because of a number of reasons. To start off, for the first time in our married life, the hubby and I spent Christmas with my in-laws. Our arrangement (since 2012 when we got married) is that we do Christmas with my family in our Naic home and New Year with our two families in our Bacoor home. The Christmas set up changed this year because our Bacoor house is now the only place my in-laws can call home in Luzon. My family, on the other hand, is about to transfer in Bacoor, too, and so they opted to spend Christmas at my siblings’ place in Manila for old times’ sake.

Weekend Story: Celebrations

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.

Weekend Story: Father’s Day 2017 + Gourdo’s Placemats + Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote Bag

Last weekend was spent in Bacoor and Manila. On Saturday afternoon, the hubby and I attended the funeral mass for the cremation of my former boss who passed away due to some physical ailments. She was such a kind, generous, and intelligent woman with great sense of humor. I owed her a lot for giving me her full trust in my first job and for many other things. (Rest in peace, MPV!) On Sunday, we had a dinner with the fam bam for Father’s Day at our fave resto in SM Manila. My youngest sib wasn’t feeling well and Daddy was in the province so they were not able to join us. We made sure though to greet Daddy and let him know how lucky and grateful we are for having him as our father.

Weekend Story: Double Celebration at F Restaurant, F1 Hotel BGC

Last weekend was a blast. We had a double celebration in the family: Mame’s 62nd birthday and my PILs’ 45th wedding anniversary. From the initial plan to have a staycation at some hotel to the bright idea of a night swimming in Pansol, we ended up trooping to F1 Hotel on Saturday night for a dinner buffet. Ang hirap talaga pag magkakaiba ang schedule!

There’s not much review of the buffet offered by the F Restaurant (a.k.a. F All Day Dining) of F1 Hotel BGC online so I thought of sharing some of my insights here. Well, based from our experience, the buffet had a decent food selection for its discounted price. You know, just the right amount of well-prepared food to make you feel full and satisfied but way far from what Spiral by Sofitel or even Vikings and Buffet 101 offer.

First Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday, March 17, was our first wedding anniversary. The hubby took me out for a lunch date at Corniche, one of the restaurants inside Diamond Hotel. We had a great time feasting on the wide buffet spread. We’ve dined at Corniche a few times already and every time, the food was good. Nothing spectacular but definitely hotel quality.

Diamond Hotel is close to our hearts. This was where we had our wedding preps and it was a big part of our wedding video and photo shoots. The hubby and I have fond memories of our two-night stay at the hotel (prior and after the wedding) and we like the fact that it’s facing the Manila bay which makes its ambiance truly romantic.
