I can’t believe it’s almost weekend again! And a long one still. This post is late but it’s better late than never. Last weekend saw the hubby and me just eating and watching movies. Oh, we did go out thrice pala pero para kumain din, hahaha. The first one was when we tried out this Japanese resto at this newly-opened mall near our village. The second one was when we met up with his car club friends. And finally, when we went malling at Alabang Town Center after hearing the anticipated mass at our neighborhood parish church.
Aside from watching a total of seven movies last weekend, the hubby and I also got to watch the season finale of Game of Thrones which was quite intense. (Personally, I can’t wait for Season 8 to arrive!!!) We drove to Bacoor on Saturday afternoon and headed back to Manila on Monday night. It was another refreshing and sulit weekend!

With the hubby attending classes at graduate school on Saturdays, I get to have more time in my hands to sleep longer and bond more with family members who live just across the street. It’s fun and I’m enjoying every minute of it. This temporary setup makes me happy.
Like last Saturday, for instance. I woke up late again and after having breakfast, I started reading this book titled “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin. (I have the e-book version,though.) It’s a nice book where the author herself talks about her own happiness project. She’s already happy but she wants to be “happier.” At first I thought she was weird, wanting to be happier and all, but as I continued reading, I found myself relating to her stories more and more. I like that she’s a smart lady and the book is peppered with a lot of facts based from various studies as well as quotes from the authors and philosophers that she looks up to.

Last Saturday night, I had a date with the two important men in my life: my husband and my brother. We went to Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati.
The last time I was there was two years ago and I noticed a lot of changes in the park. For one, there are now more restaurants and the lighting was better. There are also more people going there now (I saw many adults jogging and several families dining out!) as compared to before. I liked it as it makes the place more alive especially at night.

Yesterday, the hubby and I, along with my superfriend Nice and my good friend Melay, went on a road trip all the way to Obando, Bulacan. It was Mama Mary’s birthday yesterday and my three religious companions wanted to visit a church we haven’t visited yet as a way of celebrating this holy occasion. We left our Bacoor home at 7am and we were glad to make it just in time for the 9am mass.

The drive to Obando Church (also known as San Pascual Baylon Parish) was long and tiring but it was super worth it. Coming from Cavite, after EDSA and Monumento in Caloocan, you have to drive past Samson Road and turn right at M.H. del Pilar St. all the way to Polo Plaza and from there, the church is only a few kilometers away.
