Weekend Story: Holy Week 2019

Last weekend was peaceful and meaningful. First off, my SIL Albie flew to Bohol to see my PILs on Maundy Thursday while the hubby came back from Bohol (same reason) on Good Friday. I didn’t feel alone on the day my SIL left because I was with my extended family and of course, our dog Jasper, haha. I also did a lot of cooking because I realized it’s something I’m willing to do freely and I’m kinda good at it, ha! 😛

The hubby and I did Visita Iglesia in the afternoon of Good Friday instead of the usual Maundy Thursday. We went to seven churches and did two stations per church. It was quite a fun trip because the seven churches we visited are located in three cities: Bacoor, Las Piñas, and Muntinlupa. We were supposed to go to a public resort with my extended family on Black Saturday but ditched the plan at the last minute. The majority voted for a trip to Tagaytay instead. We, however, ended up going to Silang (Our Lady of La Salette Shrine and Acienda Designer Outlets) and Sta. Rosa (Solenad).

Weekend Story: Cooling Down At Home

Last weekend was steady. The weather was still very hot and it didn’t help that I still had to move around the house to get things done. But everything was manageable naman despite the fact that the hubby wasn’t around. He got lucky and was able to travel to Bohol for a short vacay. He missed his parents so much and there was no better time to go. As for me, I got left behind with our pet dog Jasper. I couldn’t join the hubby because of the tight sched in our office, so sad.

Weekend Story: Scorching Hot Summer

Last weekend was scorching hot! It seems summer in the Philippines is getting hotter than ever. Kamusta naman ang aming Meralco bill neto dahil sa aircon at electric fan? Even our pet, Jasper the friendly dog, felt the intense heat inside and outside our house. Except for the trip to the wet market and the church and to this newly-opened restaurant that a friend recommended to me, we intentionally didn’t go out for fear of getting torched. We just busied ourselves with household chores and food and Netflix because heller…Netflix is life, hahaha.

Weekend Story: S&R Members’ Treat + Tako Ibaraki Bacoor + Manam MOA + His and Hers Coach Bags

Last weekend was fantastic. The hubby and I spent Friday night joining the throng of people at S&R Baclaran for the annual Members’ Treat. (We were also with my brother Dan who hitched a ride with us.) Despite the “sale” temptations, we only got what we needed and could pay for because takot kami sa utang, hahaha.

Weekend Story: Chores and Family Time

Last weekend was quite memorable. It started early on Friday night when my superfriend Nice and I met up with our keto mentor/accountability partner/friend Mai at Yakimix MOA to pig out have dinner together. It was our first time to see Mai and vice versa. She’s such a nice girl who’s so mature for her age. No wonder we get along pretty well, hahaha.

For this particular weekend in Bacoor, the hubby and I focused on two things: chores and family. On Saturday, we were able to go to the wet market, visit a cemetery for the anniversary of a departed relative, and make a quick trip to S&R Imus. On Sunday, we got to hear the morning mass at our neighborhood church, wash our clothes, clean the house, watch Netflix, eat homecooked meals, and spend time with my family next door. Happy times!
