Weekend Story: Hooked on Netflix + More Time with Family

Last weekend was spent in Bacoor with Mame and my sister Jodie. We drove there on Saturday night and headed back to Manila on Sunday night. It was just an overnight stay that saw us (me, in particular) getting hooked on Netflix and just lazing around because, weekend. We are grateful for the happy moments we shared just eating, sleeping, and of course, watching a lot of Netflix. The husband, on the other hand, was more productive than the rest of us as he got to wash his car and do the laundry (with some help from Mame). I love my housemate and our house guests. Haha.

Weekend Story: More Bonding Time with My In-Laws

Last weekend was spent with my in-laws in Bacoor. We arrived there on Saturday afternoon and stayed until Sunday afternoon also. On our way to Bacoor, we stopped at S&R to have a late lunch and buy some supplies. We heard mass on Sunday morning. During the rest of the weekend, we were just lazing around, marathoning movies and TV series, eating a balance mix of junk food and home-cooked meals prepared by my MIL, and getting lots of sleep. I love slow weekends!

Weekend Story: 5th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

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:

S&R Members’ Treat

For this year, the first S&R Members’ Treat happened from March 13 to 17. It was five days full of shopping for goods that were heavily discounted, some of them even on a buy one, take one promo. We got to visit last Friday night at the Aseana-Baclaran branch on our way home to Cavite. With our limited money, we only bought a few items.


As we have expected, the place was jampacked with people and the lines to the cashier were exaggeratedly long. Haha. We did the smart thing by queuing up while we alternately looked for what we wanted to buy. Among the items we took home, this was what I liked best:

Snacks at S&R

Is membership shopping your thing? Here in Manila, we have S&R (an all-American style warehouse club) and a few more to give you this privilege. The hubby and I tried the snacks at S&R one random weekday and we couldn’t be more satisfied, taste- and price-wise. We’re still pondering over getting a membership, though. P700 is cheap but for just a year, I think I will have to weigh the pro’s and con’s first. And check out what great stuff they have in store for lower middle class people like us.

For now, here’s a photo of what we got courtesy of the day pass S&R offers to non-members free of charge:
