Weekend Story: Holy Week 2019

Last weekend was peaceful and meaningful. First off, my SIL Albie flew to Bohol to see my PILs on Maundy Thursday while the hubby came back from Bohol (same reason) on Good Friday. I didn’t feel alone on the day my SIL left because I was with my extended family and of course, our dog Jasper, haha. I also did a lot of cooking because I realized it’s something I’m willing to do freely and I’m kinda good at it, ha! 😛

The hubby and I did Visita Iglesia in the afternoon of Good Friday instead of the usual Maundy Thursday. We went to seven churches and did two stations per church. It was quite a fun trip because the seven churches we visited are located in three cities: Bacoor, Las Piñas, and Muntinlupa. We were supposed to go to a public resort with my extended family on Black Saturday but ditched the plan at the last minute. The majority voted for a trip to Tagaytay instead. We, however, ended up going to Silang (Our Lady of La Salette Shrine and Acienda Designer Outlets) and Sta. Rosa (Solenad).

Weekend Story: Cooling Down At Home

Last weekend was steady. The weather was still very hot and it didn’t help that I still had to move around the house to get things done. But everything was manageable naman despite the fact that the hubby wasn’t around. He got lucky and was able to travel to Bohol for a short vacay. He missed his parents so much and there was no better time to go. As for me, I got left behind with our pet dog Jasper. I couldn’t join the hubby because of the tight sched in our office, so sad.

Weekend Story: S&R Members’ Treat + Tako Ibaraki Bacoor + Manam MOA + His and Hers Coach Bags

Last weekend was fantastic. The hubby and I spent Friday night joining the throng of people at S&R Baclaran for the annual Members’ Treat. (We were also with my brother Dan who hitched a ride with us.) Despite the “sale” temptations, we only got what we needed and could pay for because takot kami sa utang, hahaha.

Weekend Story: Wedding Anniversary Celebration (Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay)

Last weekend was declared an #EandEHoliday. March 17, 2019 was our 7th wedding anniversary, after all. And so we decided last minute to celebrate by having a staycation at Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay. Best decision, ever! I found a good deal from Deal Grocer and got a room for the hubby and me at just PhP6,250. It was actually good for three persons na but that third person is yet to be born in this world (wishful thinking!), haha. We had a fantastic stay at the hotel, got to dine at Neri’s Not So Secret Garden (bilang fan ako ng #WaisNaMisis), and visited Caleruega Retreat Center to pray and give thanks to the Lord for our awesome seven years of marriage. (I even bumped into mommy blogger Badet there who was with her family!) To more happy years together!

Weekend Story: Captain Marvel Movie Date and Get-Together with the Legardas

Last weekend was quite busy, event-wise. On Saturday, the hubby and I took care of household chores (this included giving our dog Jasper a bath and going to the wet market with Mame) and some errands. I also got to go on a movie date with Mame and my sister Jodie. Captain Marvel was entertaining and we were wowed by Brie Larson’s character’s amazing powers, ha! The movie was good, at least in our collective opinion. Movie reviews online say otherwise, though.

On Sunday, I got to do some laundry (one month’s worth of my office clothes!) in the morning and joined the hubby and my SIL Albie in going to Manila Polo Club in Makati in the afternoon for a get-together with our former bosses — the Legardas. There were lots of laughter, conversation, picture-taking, and of course, food…and for a moment, I forgot I was on a diet, hahaha.
