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.
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:
Last weekend was spent in Bacoor with Mame and my sister Jodie. We drove there on Saturday night and headed back to Manila on Sunday night. It was just an overnight stay that saw us (me, in particular) getting hooked on Netflix and just lazing around because, weekend. We are grateful for the happy moments we shared just eating, sleeping, and of course, watching a lot of Netflix. The husband, on the other hand, was more productive than the rest of us as he got to wash his car and do the laundry (with some help from Mame). I love my housemate and our house guests. Haha.
Last weekend, the hubby and I were joined by Mame and our balikbayan relative Ate Laura in Bacoor. We drove to our house on Saturday morning with a stop over at S&R Baclaran for a quick lunch and eventually, some grocery shopping. On Sunday, we woke up early to hear the morning mass and make a surprise visit to my uncle in Dasmariñas. Then we went up to Tagaytay and Alfonso. In Tagaytay, we took Ate Laura to Mushroomburger for snacks because she’s a health buff, haha. (Next time, we’ll take her to Sonya’s Garden!) In Alfonso, we checked out The Gingerbread House and visited this foreclosed property that I have recently spotted on the website of a local bank. Naisip ko lang kasi baka kayanin ko nang tuparin ang farm house dream ko, chos!
Last weekend was pretty ordinary but fun, as always. We drove home in Bacoor on Saturday afternoon with Mame because we were attending the baptismal rites of a relative’s baby daughter in Biñan, Laguna on Sunday morning. My sister Jodie was one of the godparents but she couldn’t go so she asked me to serve as proxy ninang (you owe me one, sestra!). It was our first time to visit the church there and the mall beside it (Southwoods Mall). They were very accessible pala if you’ll go there via SLEX. As in they are the first buildings you’ll see after you make a right turn to Southwoods exit coming from Manila.
For the first weekend of 2018, I spent some quality bonding time with my two godchildren, my two kumares, and their extended family in our Bacoor home. I prepared a simple lunch for them on Sunday and made chikahan to the max with them. Namiss namin ng sobra ang isa’t-isa, hahaha.
I asked Mame to join us for the weekend so she could also entertain my guests. (She gets along with them as much as I do.) The hubby and I, along with Mame, drove home in Bacoor on Saturday afternoon. We dropped by S&R Baclaran to buy some ingredients and of course, to get the chocolate cake that I was raving about last New Year weekend. As I had expected, it was a hit with my guests.
