Last weekend was a great time to rest and relax. We went out to brave the heavy traffic on Friday night, though, and traveled all the way to Alabang from Manila to eat delicious ramen with friends. Ramen Yushoken made me eat pork! I just couldn’t resist their tantanmen and gyoza. Sinulit ko na ang cheat day ko, hahaha. The rest of the weekend, the hubby and I were just cozying up together in the bed tinkering with our phones because it was the next best thing to do aside from doing nothing. We only went out to hear the mass and go to the wet market on Sunday before driving back to Manila in the afternoon that same day.
Last weekend was spent with my in-laws in Bacoor. The hubby and I, along with my PILs, drove there on Friday night and my SIL followed the next day. We went out on Saturday to go to the mall and purchase a new ref because the old one we were using, which we borrowed only from my PILs, has decided to retire after 20+ years. (The new appliance will be delivered to our house this coming Saturday.) On Sunday, we went out again to go to the church in the morning and drove back to Manila in the afternoon. We dropped by SM Manila before going home because my PILs needed to buy some supplies.
I know this sounds cliche, but among the many things that matter, family really comes on top. For me, it’s always a joy to be with them physically so I can imagine the sadness and sacrifice of those who need to be away from their families for a long time due to economic reasons. I wish for the day when all families are living simple but happy lives together. Not necessarily together all the time, but you know, making an effort to spend more time to be together despite the busyness and complexity of the life we live in this digital world.
