Weekend Story: Slow Saturday and Whatta Sunday

We had quite a long weekend. Long, in the sense that, the passing of time felt so slow on Saturday. Or so I assumed. It was the opposite on Sunday, though. The hubby and I got too busy with some activities that before we knew it, it was time to go to bed already.

We stayed in Manila because the hubby had to go on an overnight trip with his masteral class. It was like their field trip cum summer outing. He left on Saturday morning and I got sick the night before. It was just a slight fever (37.6°C) and a few hours after taking a Tempra Forte tablet, I got well already (36.4°C). The cause of my slight fever? Body pains from excessive exercise (zumba + walking) last holiday! Yes, I learned my lesson the hard way. Ouch.

Weekend Story: Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road Trip (a.k.a. #PippoDay 2014)

The hubby and I, along with my mom and two sisters, went on a road trip yesterday. It was the 28th of September and we were remembering our little angel Pippo. Destinations were Tagaytay and Nasugbu. We left our Bacoor home at around 8:45am and reached Nasugbu two hours after. We were grateful for the nice weather (alternating between sunny and cool), the fun experience and our safe return back home.

In Nasugbu, we heard the morning mass (11:00am) at the Transfiguration Chapel housed inside Calereuga Retreat Center.

Night Out at Ayala Triangle Gardens, Makati

Last Saturday night, I had a date with the two important men in my life: my husband and my brother. We went to Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati.

The last time I was there was two years ago and I noticed a lot of changes in the park. For one, there are now more restaurants and the lighting was better. There are also more people going there now (I saw many adults jogging and several families dining out!) as compared to before. I liked it as it makes the place more alive especially at night.

First Time at Obando Church

Yesterday, the hubby and I, along with my superfriend Nice and my good friend Melay, went on a road trip all the way to Obando, Bulacan. It was Mama Mary’s birthday yesterday and my three religious companions wanted to visit a church we haven’t visited yet as a way of celebrating this holy occasion. We left our Bacoor home at 7am and we were glad to make it just in time for the 9am mass.

The drive to Obando Church (also known as San Pascual Baylon Parish) was long and tiring but it was super worth it. Coming from Cavite, after EDSA and Monumento in Caloocan, you have to drive past Samson Road and turn right at M.H. del Pilar St. all the way to Polo Plaza and from there, the church is only a few kilometers away.

The Cliffhouse, Tagaytay

I just learned about The Cliffhouse, Tagaytay thru a blog which I happened to come across while blog hopping one random weekday. The photos of the place that the blogger took were beautifully shot and somehow, it made me believe that the place was just as beautiful in real life.

Since the fiancé and I we’re going to spend this weekend in Tagaytay (at the beautiful and serene Las Ventanas to be exact), I asked him to have lunch at The Cliffhouse. We arrived here at past 11:00 a.m. this morning and immediately I took some snapshots for posterity’s sake. My first impression of the place? It was definitely lovelier in the flesh than in photos! It had a great view of the famous Taal Lake and housed a solitary hotel plus several restaurants such as Cafe Platito (where we had our lunch), Firelake Grill, Cafe Breton and Buon Giorno, among others.
