Last weekend was slow and relaxed, just how weekends should be (for me, at least). We went home in Bacoor on Friday night and drove back to Manila the next day. We had a family dinner on Saturday night at SM Manila courtesy of my father who has recently received a check from Pag-IBIG Fund after filing for retirement as member. Daddy also applied for SSS pension and that’s another reason for us to celebrate when his lump-sum gets credited in his own pensioner’s ATM card. Haha. He turned 60 years old last October and we thank God everyday for his good health.
thanks again dear Daddy for the treat!
On Sunday, the hubby, a Nazareno devotee, joined the thousands of people who flocked to the Quirino Grandstand for the annual Pahalik. He said there were more people this year than last year’s. Would you believe he got there at 7AM and got back home at past 9PM already? As for me, I just stayed in our room at my PILs’ place to do some crocheting. When I got bored, I crossed the street and checked on my parents and siblings at their apartment. I also slept a lot and I think that’s the smartest and healthiest thing I did last weekend, hahaha.

Last weekend was spent with family and friends. The hubby and I went home in Bacoor on Friday night and got back to Manila on Saturday night, meeting up with my in-laws at Robinsons Place Ermita for dinner and doing more Christmas shopping. On Sunday, we, along with our good friend Carmela and my superfriend Nice traveled to Pangasinan to pay a visit to the Our Lady of Manaoag. It’s now a yearly thing for us, a tradition of sorts.
Here are some things that made our weekend:

It’s funny how I always consider going home in Bacoor as a “staycation.” You cannot blame me, though, given our current living arrangement. After all, it’s just the the hubby and me there and our room is as cozy as we wanted it to be. Plus, it’s air-conditioned! (Our room at my PILs’ place isn’t.) Well, I guess such a little luxury makes a big difference especially in this tropical country of ours. The fact that we only get to enjoy it during weekends (and not if we miss going home for the weekend) make it sweeter. I highly doubt I’d appreciate having an air-con room as much as I do now if I get to enjoy the comfort of an air-con room every night. Oh, the beauty of rarity!
That’s why I’m glad last weekend was another Bacoor staycation. We arrived home on Friday night and left for Manila on Sunday afternoon for a family dinner at Sincerity Cafe & Restaurant (Lucky Chinatown Mall branch) to celebrate my MIL’s 68th birthday!

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.

Last weekend was memorable and fun. We spent time with family and created lots of happy memories with them. We were truly grateful for everything.
The hubby was back to school again on Saturday for his final stint in grad school. If things will go well, he’ll graduate in October. We’re both crossing our fingers on that.

Last weekend was great. Mame, my brother Dan, and my sister Nyam joined the hubby and I in our Bacoor home. We drove there on Saturday night and went back to Manila on Monday morning for the national elections.
The hubby and I had an impromptu Captain America movie date on Saturday noon. He said he wanted to treat me because it’s Mother’s Day the next day. Para matuwa raw ang aming angel son Pippo sa kanya. Haha. In fairness, we enjoyed our time together.
