Last weekend was peaceful and meaningful. First off, my SIL Albie flew to Bohol to see my PILs on Maundy Thursday while the hubby came back from Bohol (same reason) on Good Friday. I didn’t feel alone on the day my SIL left because I was with my extended family and of course, our dog Jasper, haha. I also did a lot of cooking because I realized it’s something I’m willing to do freely and I’m kinda good at it, ha! 😛
So, last weekend was spent in Manila. We weren’t able to go to Bacoor because Edwin came back to Manila from Davao (work) on Saturday night only. I, on the other hand, spent half of my Saturday with Mame. We watched a stage play at CCP entitled “Ang Pag-Uusig” (a Filipino adaptation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible play) and had dinner at SM Manila. On Sunday, the hubby and I heard the morning mass with my in-laws and after that, went out to finished some errands in QC and Pasay. And just like that, it’s a brand new week again, haha.
Last weekend flew by swiftly for the hubby and me and we were out most of the time. On Saturday, we drove to Powerplant Mall in Makati because we wanted to buy each other birthday presents (our birthdays are just one week apart). And since it was also our 14th anniversary as a couple last October 18th, anniversary gift na rin daw, haha. I wanted to get a new bag to replace my worn-out and overused Longchamp bag but didn’t find anything that caught my fancy. I was eyeing this particular Coach bag but the price at the store was just too much. I just told the hubby I’d ask a relative abroad who’s vacationing in the US to look for it there. I’m sure mas malaking mura dun! He, on the other hand, was able to get a leather crossbody bag (as birthday/anniversary present from me) which he plans to use when he attends work-related seminars/conferences in and out of town (he has one this week!).
Last weekend was quite hectic but fun, exhausting but filled with happy memories. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night and stayed there overnight. We were back in Manila on Saturday night. We would then spend Sunday doing some worthwhile activities: fun running for me and biking for the hubby, dining at Cafe Lidia in Marikina with my in-laws, and shopping at the popular Taytay Tiangge with them as well.
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:
