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 a time of joy for our family. It was actually a back-to-back celebration: my parents-in-law’s golden wedding anniversary and Mame’s 67th birthday. So, we had special family lunch on Saturday and on Sunday. Both lunches even got extended to dinner because there were still leftover food to be shared.

Last long weekend was steady and quiet. We just left the house on Saturday night to dine out and celebrate my MIL’s 71st birthday and spent the rest of the weekend at home. Oh, except for the hubby who had to go to work on Monday for an important task that needed to be done on time.

It was just an impromptu trip but it turned out to be so much fun because, well, I was with the hubby. So, I celebrated my 35th birthday last Friday (October 12th) through a simple family dinner where I had food delivered via @papacarbsph on IG. Sarap ng food nila ha, at mura pa! The prices of their dishes good for 12pax range from PhP699 to PhP1,499 only. I will definitely order from them again!

My first trip to Mindanao happened last June 11th. It was kinda surreal for me. I was grateful for the opportunity of traveling for work. I was quite excited during the trip and to be honest, it felt more like a treat than a task to me. Anyway, I flew to Davao City along with our office director for a coordination meeting and ocular inspection and got back to Manila on the same day. I would be sent to Davao again, this time with our boss, on the 14th. Our office director and four other officemates would follow on the 15th and work there with me for our event on the evening of the 16th (Saturday). We all flew back to Manila on Sunday afternoon just in time to celebrate Father’s Day with our respective families. Our event at SMX Davao, which was in celebration of Eid’l Fitr, was a success. Our efforts have paid off and our boss was happy. It also helped big time that the people we worked with in Davao were efficient and simply awesome (hello, JD and Glenn!).

Last weekend was a time to dress up and look good. Why? Because it was both an honor and a privilege for my in-laws, the hubby, and me to be invited to the 50th golden wedding anniversary celebration of our beloved Legarda bosses. The thanksgiving mass, followed by cocktails and dinner, was held at the Manila Polo Club. The event was intimate and fun at the same time.
On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with my in-laws and my parents, made an impromptu trip to this condo project in Las Piñas where the showroom of the condo project we’re eyeing is located. We just wanted to show the model units to the elders so we could find out if they approve of it or not. Well, judging by the way they looked at the place, it seemed to us that they liked it. Haha.
