Weekend Guests

Since we only get to stay at our marital home in Bacoor during weekends (the perk of having parents living in Manila who let us sleep over their place during weekdays), it’s been sort of a normal thing for us to have weekend guests. I, however, only invite family members or close friends to join us for the weekend on occasions because I treasure our “couple time” so much. After all, we only get to play our respective roles as husband and wife freely and seriously at our marital home during weekends.

Last weekend, we had my parents as guests. Actually, the plan was to visit our family home in Naic for some general cleaning (my parents stay with my three unmarried siblings in Manila to take care of their household needs). The last time we were there to clean the house prior to this visit was around August so you could imagine how dusty and dirty it was when we arrived. After bringing back order and cleanliness there, we left immediately and headed to Bacoor to spend the rest of the weekend there.

Last Day of the Year

Today, being the last day of the year, is definitely busy and fun. I can relate to a lot of people, particularly here in Manila, who are having a good time today. There may be lots of preparations, collaborations and reflections but it’s gonna be all worth it because later when midnight strikes, a brand new year arrives.

The hubby’s family is joining us for a simple New Year celebration here at home. I woke up early today because I had a lot of cooking to do. I wonder what I am doing here in front of the PC when in fact I’m only half-way done with my Media Noche menu. Haha. Anyway, I just wanna take a little break before finishing everything off.

So Many Things To Do, So Little Time

It’s Friday and tomorrow’s gonna be the start of the long weekend. I can’t wait! I have tons of things I wanna do. As much as I want to get a loooot of rest, my head is brimming with ideas on how best to spend my time. The saying “so many things to do, so little time,” rings so true at this point.

Tomorrow morning, I plan to cook fried rice for breakfast. During my previous grocery shopping, I made sure to get some Chinese sausages. We all know how they can transform simple fried rice into delicious and complete meals. I’m so excited to finally use them. I just hope I can move my ass to go to Quiapo early to buy some fresh veggies to include in my fried rice. Sorry, but I prefer them over the frozen mixed veggies bought from supermarkets.

Plans for the Long Weekend

Seriously, I don’t have any. I am actually doing some work this long weekend. I might do some cooking here at home but right now, I just wanna rest. Tonight I have work at the restaurant and so I wanna relax a bit for now. Oh, there’s this new game I’m playing in my iPod Touch called Veggie Samurai and I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s quite similar to Fruit Ninja except that the veggies can be diced and there are giant veggies showing up every now and then giving you a perfect 100 score if you are able to cut it into several slices quick. Unfortunately, I have yet to beat the 1,400+ high score courtesy of my younger sister. Bummer.

Tomorrow is Father’s Day! To make it a bit special for my Dad, I’m taking him to a nice restaurant that he hasn’t been to yet. I initially wanted to take the entire family to an outing at some nice resort in Cavite. I wanted all of us to swim in huge pools complete with swimming pool lifts and have fun all day. But I realized I had an upcoming beach trip in Zambales next week and I needed money for it. Maybe, next time. Haha.
