Weekend Story: Chillax in Bacoor

Last weekend was all about family bonding. The hubby and I went to the wet market along with Mame on Saturday morning. We would then go to SM Molino in the afternoon to buy some supplies, this time with my SIL Albie. The three of us also heard the anticipated mass that night at this church near our place and met up with Mame and my sister Jodie for dinner at Betoy’s Restaurant Molino after. Mame worked last Valentine’s Day at her friend’s flower shop in Kawit and she used a portion of her income to treat us (she insisted). When it’s Mame’s treat, it’s sky’s the limit, kaya ang saya-saya, hahaha. Buti na lang, affordable sa Betoy’s at masarap pa!

Weekend Story: Gardening with the Mabalays

Last weekend was quiet and chill. I started Saturday by giving Jasper (the friendly dog) a bath. (He gets a bath every Saturday morning, provided I got enough sleep the night before, hehe.) Mame and I went to the palengke right after. We would then go to church, along with the hubby and my SIL Albie, in the afternoon to hear the anticipated mass.

On Sunday, the hubby and I drove my sister Jodie to her dorm. She opted for this arrangement because she hasn’t adjusted to the Bacoor-Manila-Bacoor commuting situation yet. We were also with Mame and my SIL. Mame wanted to take a look at her youngest child’s dorm kasi. Si SIL naman, nagkaroon ng stroke scare kaya sugod sila ni hubby sa St. Luke’s QC! Buti na lang, false alarm pala. Apparently, it was just a frozen shoulder (thank God!). We would then go back to Bacoor in the afternoon without Jodie but with my brother Dan because I asked him to buy some plant pots in Divisoria for our gardening session later.

Weekend Story: Simple Things + Quick Visit to Our Naic Home

Last weekend was a-okay. I spent my time with the hubby and my family next door. I cooked some delicious meals, cut my nails, took long showers, finished a long overdue task (a.k.a. mending up a ripped throw pillow cover), went to the wet market with Mame, folded and ironed some clothes (the hubby took care of the laundry, as usual), watched a bit of Netflix, and enjoyed siesta time for two straight days. It was quite refreshing, actually, having done all those things. So simple, yet so productive and good for the soul.

On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with my brother Dan drove to our Naic home to pick up some stuff there. This is in preparation for the time when we have it rented out, which hopefully, happens sooner than later because we need money for the monthly amortization of my family’s new Bacoor home.

Weekend Story: Couple Time + Shopping for Birthday and Christmas Gifts

Last weekend flew by swiftly for the hubby and me and we were out most of the time. On Saturday, we drove to Powerplant Mall in Makati because we wanted to buy each other birthday presents (our birthdays are just one week apart). And since it was also our 14th anniversary as a couple last October 18th, anniversary gift na rin daw, haha. I wanted to get a new bag to replace my worn-out and overused Longchamp bag but didn’t find anything that caught my fancy. I was eyeing this particular Coach bag but the price at the store was just too much. I just told the hubby I’d ask a relative abroad who’s vacationing in the US to look for it there. I’m sure mas malaking mura dun! He, on the other hand, was able to get a leather crossbody bag (as birthday/anniversary present from me) which he plans to use when he attends work-related seminars/conferences in and out of town (he has one this week!).
