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 Manila with family and friends. On Saturday, I got lots of sleep and rest while the hubby had tons of fun cleaning his car at the garage and biking solo at Mall of Asia. I also got to try for dinner the newly-opened Kenny Rogers inside Malacañang (limited seats but it’s open 24/7!) with my sister Jodie and brother Dan. On Sunday, I overslept again in the morning and joined the hubby in the afternoon in going to the birthday party of his godchild at Jollibee Welcome Rotonda in QC.

Last weekend was quiet and quick. Haha. We spent as early as Friday night in Bacoor and dedicated much of our time watching Suits (our current fave TV series) on Netflix, eating, cuddling, and doing household chores. We went to the mall on Saturday afternoon to do some grocery shopping and pick up some summer-related stuff. On Sunday, we made a quick trip to Batangas to hear the 9:30AM mass at Lipa Cathedral in Lipa City before driving to the next town, Mataas na Kahoy, to attend the christening of my officemate’s second baby (the first one is my godchild!). From there, we went straight home in Manila and even got to do some malling at Robinsons Place Manila with my in-laws before calling it a day.

Happy New Year, people! How is 2017 treating you? I hope you are all doing great and you all had a fun New Year weekend. Last weekend was a blast for the hubby and me. We, along with our two families, celebrated the New Year in our Bacoor home. We drove there first with my two sisters and parents on December 30th and my in-laws and brother joined us on the 31st.
That Friday night, we even had the time to go out for some family bonding at Evia Lifestyle Center. We had a quick dinner and watched MMFF movies.

Last weekend started and ended just right for the hubby and me. On Friday night, we met up with the hubby’s high school barkada who are now part of my circle of friends as well. We hung out at Borderline Food Park (BFP) in Mandaluyong City. The place was teeming with youthful vibe that, for a few hours of chatter and laughter, we felt like we were in our 20’s. If you are in the mood for food or want some clean fun with cool music, then this is the place to go.

Last weekend saw the hubby and me staying put in Manila. We weren’t able to go home in Bacoor because I had work half of Saturday and he joined an out-of-town bike ride on Sunday. The rest of our weekend was spent with family. My goal was to stick to my weekend budget but I ended up spending way more than it. I need to do some offsetting soon! Kaso naalala ko, birthday na pala ng angel son namin this week. The following week and the next, birthday naman namin ni hubby. More gastos coming soon pala, my gosh! Haha.
