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.

Last long weekend was quite hectic. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, went to the wet market in the morning to buy fresh produce. We also drove to Alabang in the afternoon to hear mass and go malling. Actually, it was just Mame and I who roamed around Alabang Town Center (ATC) because the hubby met up with his car club friends at this restaurant within the Filinvest area and he just picked us up at the mall when it was time for us to go home.
On Sunday, our first activity was the christening of a friend’s miracle baby scheduled around lunchtime. (The event was filled with good vibes and I even cried a little hearing the very emotional prayer of our friend mostly expressing her immense joy for finally having a child after so many years of trying to conceive. God really has wonderful plans for all of us!) We would then join the family at night for the birthday dinner of my brother Dan at…where else but our new fave Betoy’s Restaurant Molino! 😛

Last weekend was quiet and quick. Haha. We spent as early as Friday night in Bacoor and dedicated much of our time watching Suits (our current fave TV series) on Netflix, eating, cuddling, and doing household chores. We went to the mall on Saturday afternoon to do some grocery shopping and pick up some summer-related stuff. On Sunday, we made a quick trip to Batangas to hear the 9:30AM mass at Lipa Cathedral in Lipa City before driving to the next town, Mataas na Kahoy, to attend the christening of my officemate’s second baby (the first one is my godchild!). From there, we went straight home in Manila and even got to do some malling at Robinsons Place Manila with my in-laws before calling it a day.

Last weekend was spent on a road trip. The hubby and I were with my parents. First, we traveled to San Jose City in Nueva Ecija on Saturday to visit Ate Laura, our balikbayan relative (my father’s first cousin and my mother’s BFF, to be exact). We stayed there overnight to join their fiesta celebration the next day. From San Jose, we went straight to Meycauayan, Bulacan to attend the christening of my newest godchild, baby Marcus Jacob. Humabol na lang kami sa reception kasi 1PM na kami nakaalis ng San Jose kasama si Ate Laura na makikituloy muna sa apartment ng mga kapatid ko para makapasyal naman dito sa Maynila.

Last weekend passed by quickly. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, attended the christening and first birthday of my newest godchild Maria Justine Riley somewhere in Quezon City. (She’s the daughter of my childhood friend Jenalin.) We drove straight to Bacoor after the event.

So, last weekend was quite busy. The hubby and I went to three different places in two days. Tiring but super fun! I cannot think of a better title for this post because we really did have good times with friends and family. And for that we are thankful.
On Friday night, the hubby and I joined my officemates in an overnight swimming at a private resort in Pansol, Calamba City. It was hosted by another officemate Kuya Rene who went there ahead of us. (Thanks again Sumalinog family for having us!) We ate, swam, and videoke’d the night away. The boys also drank a couple of beers while I settled for a few glasses of ice-cold Sprite. We slept at around 3AM of Saturday and woke up just before our checkout time of 8AM.
