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.

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.

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!

Last long weekend in observance of Lent was quiet, meaningful, and fun. The hubby and I had lots of rest and lots of time to bike together and bond with our family.
On Maundy Thursday, we did Visita Iglesia on two wheels. It felt good to bike from one church to another. We completed the requisite 14 churches and biked from Manila to Pasay and back.

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 Dasmariñas, 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.

How was your long weekend, friends? I hope you all had a wonderful time. The recent Holy Week gave the hubby and I ample time to spend with our family so that was exactly what we did. Of course, there were the usual moments of reflection and the observance of some religious traditions. All these and more have made our long weekend fun and meaningful at the same time.
Please be warned that this post contains more photos than usual.
On Maundy Thursday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, did the traditional Visita Iglesia. As what has been our practice, we visited seven churches (two stations per church to complete the 14 Stations of the Cross). We joined the huge crowd composed of people from all walks of life in getting from one church to another. We started early at around 8:30AM. The weather was a bit cooperative that time (read: shady with some short bursts of sunshine) so we enjoyed the long walk.
