Weekend Story: Breakfast at Antonio’s + Gringo Chicken and Ribs

Last weekend was all about enjoying good food and good company. First, there was Breakfast at Antonio’s in Tagaytay where the hubby and I, along with my youngest sister Jodie, had a hearty brunch on Sunday morning. Then, there was the newly-opened Gringo Chicken and Ribs at SM Manila where we had a nice dinner with my in-laws on the same day upon our return to Manila. I, therefore, conclude that this weekend made me bigger than ever, hahaha. Diet, we shall meet again tomorrow! 😛

Weekend Story: A Musical, A Shopping Trip, and A Birthday Party

Last weekend was packed and fun-filled. Truly, the holiday season is here!

Half of our Saturday was spent in Makati watching the awesome musical The Bridges of Madison County at RCBC Plaza, enjoying dinner at Backyard Kitchen + Brew in Circuit Makati (our first time there), and checking out the dancing lights at the festive Ayala Triangle Gardens. The hubby and I were with my sister Jodie and my SIL Albie and we had lots of fun.

Weekend Story: 2015 Feast Day of St. Michael the Archangel + Other Stuff

Last weekend was spent here in Manila in observance of the 2015 Feast Day of St. Michael the Archangel. In short, naki-fiesta kami! Not at our neighbors’ houses but just at my in-laws’ and at my siblings’ homes. Haha.

While Mame cooked Pinoy style spaghetti and lumpiang Shanghai, my MIL whipped up pork and chicken adobo and buko salad. They sent their respective “handa” to each other and so we were able to eat a lot of food. Knowing my MIL, had she not gone to work last Sunday (when the actual feast day fell), she would have cooked more food.

Weekend Adventure

Last weekend, the hubby and I, along with my brother, traveled to Porac, Pampanga to check-out The Sandbox. It’s an outdoor adventure park, the first of many attractions in Alviera, a township development in Porac, Pampanga by no less than the Ayala Land group. It was a sort of “preview” of the place and its offerings before it officially opens to the public this coming April 12th.

Of course, we had so much fun! I, for instance, got to try two rides there: the Giant Swing and the UTV. I truly enjoyed both. Overall, it was a great outdoor experience that let us have fun and adventure while still communing with nature. The place is definitely far from where we live but going there just to try it wasn’t a bad idea at all.
