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: Pippo’s 6th Birthday in Heaven + Roadtrip to Liliw, Laguna + Feast Day of St. Michael the Archangel in San Miguel, Manila

I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but every time the hubby and I observe the birth/death anniversary of our little angel (September 28th) and the day falls on a weekend or falls close to the weekend, we take a leave from work, go to a church we haven’t visited before, and just spend time together. It’s been sort of a tradition for us as we go on with our lives here on earth without our son Pippo. So, last Friday, we did just that by going on a roadtrip to Liliw, Laguna.

Weekend Story: Chill Saturday at Home + Proxy Ninang Duties in Biñan, Laguna

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.

Weekend Story: Post-Mother’s Day Celebration with Mame

Because the hubby and I were in Bohol when Mother’s Day came, I asked Mame (who dragged my sister Jodie along) to join us for the weekend in Bacoor so I could take her on a date, a post Mother’s Day celebration of sorts. We didn’t do anything grand, we just drove around and dined out at some of Mame’s fave restos (yung mga namiss nya daw kainan!). We reached Bacoor on Saturday afternoon and spent the night there. We then went to Solenad in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna on Sunday morning before going home in Manila that same day. Mame made us laugh a lot again with her unique sense of humor and before we knew it, the weekend was over.

Weekend Story: Biking + Wedding and Christening + Trip to Sta.Rosa City and Biñan, Laguna

Last weekend was a hectic one but the hubby and I survived the busyness and even had lots of bonding time with family and friends.

Our Saturday morning was spent biking at Mall of Asia. We always feel great during and after our bike ride so we plan to continue doing this for a long time. I now join him also when he bikes during weeknights. #balikalindog
