I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but every time the hubby and I observe the birth/death anniversary of our little angel (September 28th) and the day falls on a weekend or falls close to the weekend, we take a leave from work, go to a church we haven’t visited before, and just spend time together. It’s been sort of a tradition for us as we go on with our lives here on earth without our son Pippo. So, last Friday, we did just that by going on a roadtrip to Liliw, Laguna.
Last weekend was a-okay. The hubby and I got to go home in Bacoor as early as Friday night. On Saturday, we went out to go to Alabang Town Center (ATC), say a prayer at the church beside it, and check out Mercado del Lago in Bicutan, Taguig City. We would go back to Manila on Sunday noon to have lunch with my in-laws at SM Manila and we would sleep earlier than usual to prepare ourselves physically for the coming work week.
Last weekend, the hubby and I were able to make the most of our time together despite the bad weather due to typhoon Josie. On Saturday, my PILs received a balikbayan box from their family friends in the US. (Thank you again Flor family for the treats and goodies!) Later that day, my in-laws decided to join us in Bacoor for the weekend with a stop-over at Mall of Asia (MOA).
The boys watched PBA live at MOA Arena while the girls had dinner and did some shopping at the mall. We stayed in Bacoor until Sunday afternoon and drove to Manila at nighttime so we wouldn’t have to endure the heavy traffic the next day. Actually, the provincial government of Cavite had already put the province under a state of calamity during that time and so we were quite worried na rin. It proved to be a good decision because the heavy rains would continue to pour all throughout Cavite until Monday as reported in the news, submerging many towns there in knee-deep flood (some parts of Bacoor included).
The hubby and I braved the heavy traffic just so we could go home in Bacoor on Friday night. We wanted to stay longer for the weekend and it was the only way we could do so. We didn’t go out except for the time when we went to church and bought supplies from our new favorite supermarket — Puregold. I don’t know with you but we’ve compared prices and so far, Puregold gives the most bang for our buck. Plus, Puregold promos are aplenty all year round!
And because we’ve been a Petron customer for years now because of our car, we were glad to find out that one of the Puregold promos at present is giving fuel discounts through Petron as part of their 20th anniversary. It’s PHP3 off per liter of gasoline and PHP1 off per liter of diesel from May 16, 2018 to May 15, 2019 at participating Petron branches. You just have to show your Puregold Perks card or Puregold Tindahan ni Aling Puring’s card (for business owners) to the gas attendant to avail of the discounts. Not bad especially these days when fuel prices have been on the rise, right?
Because June has officially started, rains have become a regular thing in this side of the world. The hubby and I drove to Bacoor last Friday night and spent the weekend at home. We only went out to buy some groceries and after that, enjoyed the company of each other inside the four corners of our humble abode. My PILs joined us on Saturday and we all went back to Manila on Sunday night. It was quite relaxing and fun. The only downside of the situation was that the continuous drizzle made us eat more than we used to. Good thing we had enough food in the pantry and my MIL did all the cooking as usual. Love her talaga! Haha.
