Cool Weekend

Last weekend was cool and quiet. It was very restful for the hubby and me. We indulged ourselves in sleep and food and TV. We only got out of the house to go to the mall on Saturday. We paid some bills, got some supplies from the supermarket and had dinner at our fave fastfood. Oh, I also found a nice shirt dress and impulsively bought it to the hubby’s surprise. Haha.

When we got home, we hanged out in our living room. I read my magazines (where I found out about the wonders of restaurant pagers used in restaurants in the US and Europe) while he watched TV. We slept late that night and woke up late as well the next day.

Ready for the Weekend

It’s Friday already and weekend is only several hours away. I can’t wait for the weekend to arrive. I can’t wait for the hubby and I to go home in Cavite. My SIL asked to go with us and we agreed to take her so I guess that’s another reason to be happy about. Having a guest at home is always fun as I get to cook more. You know how much I love experimenting in the kitchen. Haha.

Speaking of cooking, I just remembered my pantry already needs replenishment. Good thing my new fave supermarket, Rustan’s Fresh in Evia, Daang Hari is just a 30-minute car ride away. I so love the atmosphere there. Not only do they have a wide selection of fresh produce and dry goods, but they also have friendly staff and a spick-and-span place that makes grocery shopping more enjoyable. I’m telling you, I can stay there the whole day just comparing food labels. I know every Rustan’s supermarket is like that but this particular branch is the most charming for me. Oh well, that, or I’m just easy to please.

Routinary, But Never Boring

The past weekend has been quiet for us. We were stuck at home doing the usual stuff. Yes, we got to visit the mall but only to pay bills and get fresh supplies.

While the hubby was busy doing the laundry and cleaning the house, I labored myself in the kitchen (cooking diva ang peg!). The hubby and I, we love to share household chores. It really doesn’t have to be always equal, though, as you can see he does most of the work. Haha.

Weekend Report

We were supposed to spend the last weekend just at home with my in-laws. Our Saturday was fun, as usual. I am proud to say that the hubby and I, after finishing a few errands, slept the day away. We really thought we deserved some rest. Haha. We just let Mama and Papa and my SIL do their thing inside our home.

On Sunday, however, all that had to change because the hubby and I, along with my side of the family, got invited to attend the baptismal celebration of my cousin’s baby son. The hubby and I, along with my in-laws, then found ourselves heading back to Manila in the morning, attending the christening at noon and spending the night at my in-laws to prepare for work the next day.

Change of Plans

Don’t you hate it when you have to change plans at the last minute? I do, especially if it’s weekend plans we’re talking about. I want my weekend to be as relaxing and fun as possible. I try to take as much rest as I could during the weekends. Weekends are almost sacred to me. Haha.

Last weekend, we were supposed to visit our family house in Naic to do some general cleaning. But because my parents had an errand to do, we had to re-schedule it to another date. Good thing another pleasant opportunity presented itself, for me at least. I was invited by my sister (the one with the new job) to go with her to a dinner event organized by their company for Saturday night. It was like a welcome party of sorts and each employee was asked to bring one companion. I asked where the venue was and when she told me it was at some resto inside Maxims Hotel, I didn’t hesitate to accept the invitation. I hadn’t been to that part of Resorts World Manila; I thought it was my chance to see a six-star hotel!

Our Weekend Getaway at Cross Winds Swiss Luxury Resort

Last weekend was all about rest and recreation. We had an overnight stay at Cross Winds Swiss Luxury Resort in Tagaytay. It was my SIL’s birthday last Saturday and she thought of taking us there for a weekend getaway.

with the hubby

We had a great time exploring the Swiss-inspired place, from the pine trees and the lush greenery to the beautiful Swiss-themed houses and the rest of the amenities. Truly, it was one weekend to remember. We just hung out in our room, ate our baon for lunch and snacks and had delivery food for dinner.
