Weekend Story: Bonding with my Parents + My First Pair of Converse Shoes

I dream of a time when I could date my parents every week. I have always believed that family always comes first and that just spending time with them is one of the happiest and most worthwhile things I could do in life. That’s why I’m glad I got to spend the weekend with my parents. The hubby and I drove to Bacoor with them on Friday night, right after we had family dinner at a Chinese restaurant to celebrate Edwin’s 39th birthday.

Our weekend turned out to be fun and as laidback as it should be except for the side pasyal to Biñan City in Laguna on Saturday afternoon to visit my aunt and my two cousins (one of them is an OFW who has just come back from Bahrain for a short vacation). After catching up with just my aunt because my cousins had previous commitments, we took home some pasalubongs. It was getting late so we had a stop over at Nuvali in Sta. Rosa City to have dinner pa pala. Banapple was my personal choice because I only get to taste their popular banoffie pie whenever I’m in the area. Haha.

Weekend Story: Mercado del Lago in Bicutan, Taguig City

Last weekend was a-okay. The hubby and I got to go home in Bacoor as early as Friday night. On Saturday, we went out to go to Alabang Town Center (ATC), say a prayer at the church beside it, and check out Mercado del Lago in Bicutan, Taguig City. We would go back to Manila on Sunday noon to have lunch with my in-laws at SM Manila and we would sleep earlier than usual to prepare ourselves physically for the coming work week.

Weekend Story: Moving Stuff + Three Events

Last weekend was busy. On Saturday noon, the hubby and I, along with Mame, my brother Dan and my sister Nyam, attended the birthday party of my cousin’s child held at their house in Mandaluyong. From there, the hubby and I joined his car club’s seventh anniversary celebration held at a local bar (also in Mandaluyong). Team Accent Philippines (TAP) is a fellowship of Hyundai Accent car owners from all over the country. They have these what they call “eye balls” where they gather in one place to socialize and exchange car-related news, promos, products, and services. These days, I only get to accompany the hubby during his car club’s big events. I’d rather stay home to NetFlix and chill pag walang pasok sa work. Oo, kinain na rin ako ng sistema, hahaha. 😛

In other news, the hubby and I have recently started to move our things from Manila to Bacoor because we may be living there for good sooner than later. On Sunday morning, we already took some boxes to Bacoor. We also brought our old sala set in Bacoor to my parents’ place in Naic. We were joined by Mame and my brother Dan in this trip as we needed more pairs of hands in carrying stuff. We were done by 4PM and drove straight back to Manila for my PILs’ wedding anniversary dinner. They’ve been married for 47 years already kaya naman isa sila sa mga couples na #relationshipgoals namin ng asawa ko.

Weekend Story: Rainy Weekend in Bacoor

Because June has officially started, rains have become a regular thing in this side of the world. The hubby and I drove to Bacoor last Friday night and spent the weekend at home. We only went out to buy some groceries and after that, enjoyed the company of each other inside the four corners of our humble abode. My PILs joined us on Saturday and we all went back to Manila on Sunday night. It was quite relaxing and fun. The only downside of the situation was that the continuous drizzle made us eat more than we used to. Good thing we had enough food in the pantry and my MIL did all the cooking as usual. Love her talaga! Haha.

Weekend Story: Mother’s Day Celebration 2018

Mother’s Day and barangay elections, two of the things that made the long weekend for most of us. In our family, Mother’s Day is celebrated without much fanfare and this time around, it was through a dinner on Sunday night at Conti’s Robinsons Magnolia, one of the malls we favor because it’s not always too crowded like other commercial centers. In our side of town, the elections went smoothly and peacefully last Monday, thank goodness.

The hubby and I opted to stay in Manila the entire long weekend and it proved to be a good decision because we got to finish some errands and bond with our family. Below are some photos:
