I’ve been neglecting this blog. I’ve been preoccupied with work and lazy with anything that is not work-related. But today, I felt like I needed to share some life updates that I could look back on in the future. So, here are some things that happened to me and my little family since my last blog post:
Last weekend was special because the hubby and I, along with my sister Nyam, got to celebrate our birthdays together. It was purely family, of course, because we were still under MECQ in Bacoor. For our convenience, we just had cakes and some dishes ordered, except for the lasagna that my sister Jodie took the time and effort to make for us (thanks again, sestra!).
Our baby NJ is now the official candle blower in the family. Whenever we buy a cake either for a birthday or some other occasion, we make sure to include a candle or two for her to blow. The excitement on her face whenever she blows those candles is priceless!
Last weekend was meaningful and fun. The hubby turned 40 last Saturday and we celebrated it the best way we could. The celebrant wanted to go swimming courtesy of the condo’s swimming pools and so we did. We just brought in some food which we partook of picnic style inside our unit.
On Sunday, we went to Festival Mall in Alabang to buy maintenance meds for my PILs (which they will take to Bohol with them this week) and had a post-birthday dinner for the hubby at Via Mare.
Our fifth wedding anniversary called for a celebration and deserved a long weekend so the hubby and I both filed for a leave last Friday. We then checked into Acacia Hotel in Alabang for a staycation (just what we needed after an exhausting work week!). Acacia Hotel didn’t disappoint, from the room accommodation and hotel facilities to the friendly service and breakfast buffet. Everything was beyond what we expected so we ended up having an awesome overnight stay. The rest of our weekend was spent with family: malling with my in-laws on Saturday night and driving up to Antipolo to hear mass and having a family dinner at Robinsons Place Ermita on Sunday. It was a fun weekend and we are grateful for the happy memories created and shared.
Here are several photos depicting our weekend activities:
Today is my mom’s birthday. She’s now 58 years old. A bit old, yes, but it doesn’t show. She’s still full of energy and laughter. There’s no dull moment with her around. She’s a natural clown and we love her to pieces.
Mom, I know you don’t read my blog but I just want to feature you here because I appreciate your presence in my life all these years. You’ve been a source of strength and inspiration to me. I can’t imagine life without you. Every day I thank God for giving you into my life.
Soon you’ll gonna be a grandmother to my first baby na. I know you’re very excited about it. I’m confident that you’ll be a good Mamu to my baby. I thank you in advance.
Keep the youthful spirit alive, mom! I’m just here when you need me. I will never let you down like how you’ve never let me down, ever. My siblings and I will take care of you and dad when you grow older, and that’s a promise. Mwah! 🙂
I’ve always liked the number 7. It’s actually my most favorite number. I love how it looks: not too straight nor too twisted. It has just the right angles and lines. It looks very feminine but with lots of strength and vitality to me. From afar, it resembles a sexy but very confident woman. Up close and personal, it’s a real charmer. But I digress.
The beauty of number 7 lies in the fact that it marks a milestone in my romantic relationship. The fiancee and I just celebrated our 7th anniversary as couple last October 18. We were on our way home to Manila that time, back from our pleasurable 4D 3N KL and SG trip. Despite the lack of celebration, the day turned out to be special for us.
