Weekend Story: Swimming in the Rain

Last weekend was a rainy weekend. There was no typhoon but the heavy rains that kept pouring on the ground felt like one. There was nothing more safe and convenient to do but to stay at home. We, however, was out early on Saturday to go swimming in Pansol for a cousin’s son’s birthday party. Family comes first, you know. Haha.

In fairness, nung nasa SLEX kami, wala masyadong ulan. Tapos nung nasa resort na kami, umulan ng ilang beses (na di kalakasan at humihinto rin ng matagal bago bumuhos ulit) kaya tuluy-tuloy pa rin ang swimming namin! Buti na lang, may ordinary swimming pool at may hot spring pool din dun sa resort. Kapag giniginaw na kami, lumilipat kami sa hot spring pool para magpainit. Para kaming mga bata, inenjoy lang namin ang swimming party hanggang sa nagdecide na kami umuwi by 4PM.

Weekend Story: Mother’s Day Celebration + National Elections 2016

Last weekend was great. Mame, my brother Dan, and my sister Nyam joined the hubby and I in our Bacoor home. We drove there on Saturday night and went back to Manila on Monday morning for the national elections.

The hubby and I had an impromptu Captain America movie date on Saturday noon. He said he wanted to treat me because it’s Mother’s Day the next day. Para matuwa raw ang aming angel son Pippo sa kanya. Haha. In fairness, we enjoyed our time together.

Weekend Story: Quiet and a Little Bit Active

We stayed in Manila and didn’t go home in Bacoor last weekend. On Friday, the hubby was away on a field trip/outing with his grad school classmates in Laguna. They spent the night in a private resort somewhere in Pansol. I would see him again on Saturday morning and we would spend the rest of the day cleaning, finishing some errands, eating, sleeping, getting online, and just doing nothing.

On Sunday, we biked at Mall of Asia (MOA) and felt good after. Biking is really fun!

Weekend Story: Family Outing + Work on a Sunday

Last weekend was super fun. Well, scratch that. The fun only happened on Saturday because we had a family outing. Sunday was a different ballgame. I had to go to work and though I was quite productive, lazing away on a Sunday is still waaaaaay better. Haha.

So, we went home in Bacoor with my in-laws on Friday night. The next day, Saturday, we woke up early, packed our things and drove to Kalipayan Hotel and Resort in DasmariƱas, Cavite. We got there at 7am-ish. After paying our entrance fees (P200 per head) and renting the same kubo (P600, good for 12 persons) that we stayed in during our previous visit last Holy Week, we started unpacking our stuff.
