It’s been a while, friends. So many things are happening in my personal life all at the same time. Busy would be an understatement. But it’s still all good in the ‘hood, as they say. Always thankful, always grateful to the one above who gives me life every day and to the people who make living this life meaningful and worthwhile.
So, what makes me busy these days? Work and motherhood, mostly. Oh, and how time really flies! Our baby NJ is now a preschooler! (Guess I need to practice omitting the “baby” after her name now.) She joined a summer camp last month and started attending summer class last Monday. Here’s one great thing we discovered: she loves going to school! So far, we’ve never had a hard time waking her up to prepare her for school. She even hates the thought of arriving late and making her teachers and classmates wait (oh, it rhymes!). Haha.

The hubby and I got married on March 17, 2012. It’s been 10 years since that life-changing day and look where we are now, we’re still deeply, madly in love with each other. Hahaha. Kidding aside, we just love each other to the extent that we continue to choose to be together in spite of and despite of. Our marriage is not a walk in the park but it continues to work and it continues to make us want to stay married, so I guess we’re doing just fine. When Pippo (our little angel in heaven) and NJ (our rainbow baby who’s a cheerful toddler now) came into our lives, our life together became happier and fuller. And we have God, our families, and friends to thank for that.
So, just like in our past wedding annivs, our 10th called for a celebration of sorts. The hubby and I took a leave from work for two days (March 17-18) and opted to go to the beach with baby NJ in tow. We were quite excited because it was her first time to experience the beach and we thought she would really have a wonderful time there (she did!). I initially wanted to book a room at this posh resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas but changed my mind when I checked out Klook and saw this promo at Palm Beach Resort (also in Laiya). I’ve been to Palm Beach for an office outing back in 2013 so I knew it was pretty decent. It was a good thing the hubby approved of my recommendation. Laking tipid kaya! Tapos hindi ko na iisipin ang kakainin namin dahil may full board meals dun. Winner! 🙂

Last weekend was a time of joy for our family. It was actually a back-to-back celebration: my parents-in-law’s golden wedding anniversary and Mame’s 67th birthday. So, we had special family lunch on Saturday and on Sunday. Both lunches even got extended to dinner because there were still leftover food to be shared.

Last weekend was memorable and fun. On Saturday, the hubby and I celebrated our little angel’s 7th birthday in heaven by hearing the anticipated mass at St. Michael the Archangel Shrine in Malacañang, visiting his niche housed in that same church complex, and having dinner at Wok Inn Restaurant in Malate with our former La Cocina boss, Dr. Ramon Legarda.
On Sunday, we went to the condo again and swam in the pool. We just brought some sandwiches and chips so we had something to eat while there. We then spent the rest of the day at S&R Baclaran (to catch the last day of the members’ treat) and at home.

So last weekend was kinda hectic but fun. The condo unit we bought in Bacoor was turned over to us last week. We visited it and got to hang out at the massive lounge there and try one of the swimming pools at the garden area. So far, so good.
We also celebrated our family pet’s second birthday by buying him a cake. He’s grown so big and super kulit and he continues to bring joy into our lives. We love him dearly.

Last weekend passed by quickly. I guess weekends are fast like that so you really have to make the most of your time. In our case, it’s more of down time. The hubby and I got to rest and spend time with our extended families. Aside from shopping for food and hearing the mass, we didn’t do anything outside the house.
