Weekend Story: Quiet Time in Bacoor + Quick Trip to Batangas

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.

Weekend Story: New Year 2017

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.

Weekend Story: Happy Together and with Family and Friends

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.

Weekend Story: Work and Some Family Fun

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.

Weekend Story: Antipolo Road Trip with Family (Our Lady of Antipolo Shrine, Mom’s Pot Restaurant, and Pinto Art Museum)

Last weekend was super fun. The hubby and I had a quiet time in Bacoor from Friday night to Saturday afternoon. By Saturday night, we were already back in Manila to spend the rest of the weekend with our two families. On Sunday, we embarked on a road trip to Antipolo. We had three stops which kept us preoccupied all throughout the trip. We were exhausted at the end of the day but we had loads of fun. It was definitely another family bonding to remember!

It was my PILs who really wanted to go to Antipolo and hear mass at the Our Lady of Antipolo Shrine. I was the one who suggested to expand our itinerary. Good thing they agreed to my idea and so the lunch at Mom’s Pot Restaurant and the visit to Pinto Art Museum materialized.

Weekend Story: Double Celebration at F Restaurant, F1 Hotel BGC

Last weekend was a blast. We had a double celebration in the family: Mame’s 62nd birthday and my PILs’ 45th wedding anniversary. From the initial plan to have a staycation at some hotel to the bright idea of a night swimming in Pansol, we ended up trooping to F1 Hotel on Saturday night for a dinner buffet. Ang hirap talaga pag magkakaiba ang schedule!

There’s not much review of the buffet offered by the F Restaurant (a.k.a. F All Day Dining) of F1 Hotel BGC online so I thought of sharing some of my insights here. Well, based from our experience, the buffet had a decent food selection for its discounted price. You know, just the right amount of well-prepared food to make you feel full and satisfied but way far from what Spiral by Sofitel or even Vikings and Buffet 101 offer.
