After several postponements due to our crazy hectic sched at work, our office outing/team building/strategic planning workshop has finally pushed thru last weekend. The rainy season has officially begun but what the heck, we hit the beach like it was still summer. It was a good thing that the weather cooperated. The sun would peek through the clouds every now and then but it was predominantly gloomy and it rained just once (more like a quick rain shower!) during our overnight stay at Pico Sands Hotel, one of the structures inside the massive property that is Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club in Nasugbu, Batangas.
Last weekend primarily revolved around these three places: Mall of Asia, UP Diliman, and Manila Ocean Park. The hubby and I didn’t go home in Bacoor intentionally so we could spend more time with our family and friends here in Manila. We were glad to have made such a decision because it turned out to be beneficial not just for our body but also for our soul.
Mall of Asia (MOA)
The hubby didn’t have classes in grad school so we were able to go biking in MOA on Saturday morning. His officemate Giannie joined us there, too. We had breakfast together at our fave Biker’s Cafe before going home.
Last weekend was special. The hubby and I may have not been able to go home in Bacoor but we had a happy and relaxing time in Manila with my in-laws. I, for one, had the chance to witness one of the simplest yet most intimate weddings, ever.
On Saturday, I traveled all the way to Lipa City in Batangas to attend my officemate and dear friend Gerlie’s wedding. (She finally married her childhood sweetheart after a decade of being in a relationship.) The wedding ceremony was held at St. Therese of the Child Jesus Parish and the reception followed at the main hall of Mt. Malarayat Golf and Country Club. The hubby wasn’t able to join me because he was still recovering from flu then. (He’s okay now, thank God!)
