Weekend Story: Midnight Mercato + Two House Guests + Bonding at Home

With the hubby still enjoying his sem break at graduate school, we now get to go home in Bacoor on Friday nights. Like last weekend, for instance. But instead of just the two us going home, we had two guests whom we fetched from Market, Market in Taguig City.


Our Bohol-based friend Jan2x (one of the family friends we saw during our short vacation in Bohol last month) and his girl student Damecess were here in Manila for the National Schools Press Conference 2015 which was held in that city last week. We found out that she placed 6th in the Photo Journalism – English category and so we decided to celebrate it by treating them to a late dinner at Midnight Mercato.

Weekend Story: Stella Wood Fired Bistro, Midnight Mercato, Willow Jewelry, and Two Lady House Guests

We were supposed to have three lady house guests last weekend but only two (Ivy and Rona) showed up.

Midnight Mercato with Friends

It’s been a while since the last time I went to Midnight Mercato at The Fort. This awesome foodie place has been in existence for more than a year now (if I’m not mistaken) and yet it still continues to attract patrons, mostly yuppies and families. Last night, I went there with the hubby, my SIL and my two good friends and we had a nice food trip!

Let me tell you a secret. In the many times that I’ve been to Midnight Mercato, I only order the same stuff. Like, seriously. I get this flavored fried rice that sells for less than 100 bucks a cup, some mild-spicy Manang’s Chicken wings (this one tastes better than Bon Chon’s in my opinion!), a bottle of Edgy’s refreshing dalandan juice and a slice of red velvet or carrot cake. That’s it. All yum. And affordable, too.
