Weekend Story: Ordinary but Never Boring

With the hubby attending classes at graduate school on Saturdays, I get to have more time in my hands to sleep longer and bond more with family members who live just across the street. It’s fun and I’m enjoying every minute of it. This temporary setup makes me happy.

Like last Saturday, for instance. I woke up late again and after having breakfast, I started reading this book titled “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin. (I have the e-book version,though.) It’s a nice book where the author herself talks about her own happiness project. She’s already happy but she wants to be “happier.” At first I thought she was weird, wanting to be happier and all, but as I continued reading, I found myself relating to her stories more and more. I like that she’s a smart lady and the book is peppered with a lot of facts based from various studies as well as quotes from the authors and philosophers that she looks up to.

New Fave Japanese Restaurant

My husband is a big fan of Japanese food. Seafood allergy aside, he tries to eat Japanese food as often as he can with eyes on the safe options. In Bacoor, there’s this tiny Japanese restaurant that we visit on weekends because 1) we like their food 2) we like their good service 3) we like the tiny but well-kept space 4) the food prices are so cheap and 5) it’s just a 5-minute car ride (or a good walking distance) from our place.

The name of the restaurant is Ume-ya. It’s located on Mambog Road, a few steps away from the Total gas station and the Jollibee store along Molino Boulevard. Ever since a blogger friend (who also lives in Bacoor) mentioned it on FB, we’ve dined there thrice already and have always been satisfied. I’m not really into Japanese food as I’m a Chinese food enthusiast but so far, I share these dishes with the hubby as favorites: kani salad, California maki, katsudon, beef teriyaki, and shoyu ramen.

Weekend Roundup

Last weekend was quiet, relaxed and fun as usual. Our Saturday started late because the hubby and I decided to wake up late. After lunch, we just watched TV and slept the afternoon away. I was even able to play Candy Crush in between naps. I loved it.

When dinnertime came, we headed to this Japanese resto tucked in our neighborhood. Well, technically, it’s still part of our barangay, though we live several blocks away from it. You have to believe me when I say they serve affordable yet very delicious Japanese fares! My favorites are the Katsudon, Bibimba, kani salad and tuna maki.

Quiet Weekend

It’s not every time that we get to experience a quiet weekend. You know, a weekend where there’s very little or zero happenings. Last weekend was a perfect example of a quiet weekend for us. The hubby and I just stayed home doing household chores together and taking our much-needed rest after. That kind of stuff.

Except for our quick trip to SM Bacoor to replenish our pantry supplies, we just spent a quiet weekend at home. It was scorching hot outside so we just watched a lot of TV, played a lot of games, ate a lot of food, and cuddled and kissed each other like there’s no tomorrow (okay, that’s exaggerated).

Weekend Highlights

Last weekend was a blast. I hope all weekends are like that. So light and fun and happy. All of the things I did was enjoyable and I even got to spend some quality bonding time with my family and the hubby.

On Saturday, I went shopping at my fave department store with my mom and my sister. Landmark Makati never fails to amaze me with its dirt-cheap clothes. Their accessories and bazaar sections are the best. I’ve always found treasures in them.
