Weekend Story: Rainy, Windy, and Muddy

Last weekend was not so bad despite the onslaught of the typhoon (Ompong) and its aftermath. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night and went back to Manila on Sunday night. We were just at home doing household chores, eating, Netflix-ing, and cuddling because, maginaw, hahaha. When the rains and the winds stopped on Saturday afternoon (but it was muddy everywhere!), we went out of the house to do all these stuff: hear the anticipated mass, refuel the car, buy water, have dinner at Betoy’s restaurant (Molino branch), go to Evia (the mall), and get some supplies at Rustan’s supermarket located in the same mall.

Weekend Story: Rizal Road Trip (Antipolo + Taytay)

The hubby and I hit the road again on Sunday. This time around, we were with Mame and my sister Jodie. After spending Friday night and the whole of Saturday in Bacoor, we traveled to Antipolo on Sunday morning to hear mass and light some candles for our personal intentions. The Shrine of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage was teeming with people during our visit. And somehow we felt good just by being with them as we heard the mass and said our individual prayers. It was a unanimous decision to buy some suman sa ibos and adobong kasuy after leaving the church. We intentionally looked for the stall of a friend’s cousin so we could get a discount on our purchase, hahaha.

From Antipolo, we drove to Taytay to have lunch and found Canterberry Bar and Restaurant via Zomato app. We had simple but delicious meals at affordable prices. We also grant Mame’s request to shop at Taytay Tiangge. All four of us ended up taking home a bag of clothes each, with my sister Jodie having the most number of items bought (as I had expected).

Weekend Story: CSC R.A.C.E. to Serve Fun Run 2018 + Cafe Lidia + Taytay Tiangge

Last weekend was quite hectic but fun, exhausting but filled with happy memories. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night and stayed there overnight. We were back in Manila on Saturday night. We would then spend Sunday doing some worthwhile activities: fun running for me and biking for the hubby, dining at Cafe Lidia in Marikina with my in-laws, and shopping at the popular Taytay Tiangge with them as well.

Weekend Story: Sunday Roadtrip + La Locanda Ristorante Pizzeria + Birthday Lunch + Keto Supplies

Last weekend was epic. It was one of those weekends that we had lots of couple and family time. The hubby and I intentionally extended our weekend by taking a leave from work on Monday. Saya-saya! We stayed overnight in Bacoor on Saturday. We then went on a road trip to the south on Sunday where we passed through Kaybiang Tunnel in Ternate that’s popular among bikers and motorcylists, visited the lovely Saint Francisco Xavier Church and discovered a fantastic Italian restaurant called La Locanda Ristorante Pizzeria in Nasugbu, and experienced a foggy Tagaytay on our way back to Manila. It was pure bliss traveling a total of 187km, definitely worth every minute of our time together.

On Monday, the hubby and I did some errand at GSIS head office in Pasay and spent the rest of the day in Mall of Asia (MOA) because, malling. We also met with my SIL Albie there for a dinner at this new resto called Hawker Chan. Like their original branch in Singapore, they offer the world’s cheapest Michelin star meal that is the soya chicken rice (PhP128). We loved it!

Weekend Story: Stuck in Manila + Birthday Party in Tanza, Cavite

Last weekend when the rains hit hard, we were mostly stuck at my PILs’ place in Manila. On Sunday, though, we braved the roads despite the appalling weather to attend the birthday party of a relative’s child in Tanza, Cavite. After the party (which was super fun both for the adults and the children!), we drove back to Manila to rest a bit and prepare for the coming work week.
