Weekend Story: Bonding with my Parents + My First Pair of Converse Shoes

I dream of a time when I could date my parents every week. I have always believed that family always comes first and that just spending time with them is one of the happiest and most worthwhile things I could do in life. That’s why I’m glad I got to spend the weekend with my parents. The hubby and I drove to Bacoor with them on Friday night, right after we had family dinner at a Chinese restaurant to celebrate Edwin’s 39th birthday.

Our weekend turned out to be fun and as laidback as it should be except for the side pasyal to Biñan City in Laguna on Saturday afternoon to visit my aunt and my two cousins (one of them is an OFW who has just come back from Bahrain for a short vacation). After catching up with just my aunt because my cousins had previous commitments, we took home some pasalubongs. It was getting late so we had a stop over at Nuvali in Sta. Rosa City to have dinner pa pala. Banapple was my personal choice because I only get to taste their popular banoffie pie whenever I’m in the area. Haha.

Weekend Story: From Sta. Rosa to Makati

Last weekend was busy. The hubby and I slept in our Bacoor home on Friday night with my brother Dan and drove to Sta. Rosa, Laguna the next day. We went to Paseo for some shoe shopping (only the two boys) and then to Nuvali to check out the magical field of lights there, the newest Christmas attraction in the area. (If you plan to visit it also, prepare yourself for a long walk and a huge crowd especially if it’s a weekend.) We were back in Manila that same night. On Sunday, the hubby and I were joined by Mame and my sister Jodie at Circuit Makati, Century City Mall, and Buendia Food by the Court to shop, see a movie, and of course, eat. Pagod at pawisan pero masaya at busog na naman ang weekend namin, haha.

Weekend Story: Post-Mother’s Day Celebration with Mame

Because the hubby and I were in Bohol when Mother’s Day came, I asked Mame (who dragged my sister Jodie along) to join us for the weekend in Bacoor so I could take her on a date, a post Mother’s Day celebration of sorts. We didn’t do anything grand, we just drove around and dined out at some of Mame’s fave restos (yung mga namiss nya daw kainan!). We reached Bacoor on Saturday afternoon and spent the night there. We then went to Solenad in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna on Sunday morning before going home in Manila that same day. Mame made us laugh a lot again with her unique sense of humor and before we knew it, the weekend was over.

Weekend Story: Paseo de Sta. Rosa and Nuvali-Solenad with Friends

Last weekend was fun and a bit exhausting. On Saturday afternoon, the hubby and I met with his thesis consultant again and after that, we picked up our good friend Carmela from her house and we all drove to our Bacoor home. The next day, Sunday, we heard mass at St. John Bosco Church in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna before meeting up with my superfriend Nice at the nearby Paseo de Sta. Rosa. It was Carmela’s first time there and so we were quite excited to show her around. We explored the place and did some shopping and after an hour or so, we transferred to Nuvali-Solenad complex for more strolling (and shopping, you bet!). While I had no intention to shop, I ended up getting a few things from this trip. Ang hirap pag may kasamang nag-prepare talagang magshopping doon (hello hubby and superfriend Nice!), hahaha.

Here are photos from the weekend pasyal of the Tropang Ramen:

Weekend Story: Biking + Wedding and Christening + Trip to Sta.Rosa City and Biñan, Laguna

Last weekend was a hectic one but the hubby and I survived the busyness and even had lots of bonding time with family and friends.

Our Saturday morning was spent biking at Mall of Asia. We always feel great during and after our bike ride so we plan to continue doing this for a long time. I now join him also when he bikes during weeknights. #balikalindog
