Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s Vaccine Day + Minor Accident

Last weekend was quite busy. On Saturday, the hubby and I took baby NJ to her pedia in Manila for yet another vaccine shot. (This time, it’s Hepa A vaccine and we paid P3,500 for it which was already inclusive of consultation fee.) The rest of the day was spent finishing errands.

Our Sunday was not so happy because baby NJ had a minor accident. She tripped while walking (ang bilis nya kasi maglakad, mana sakin, waaaah!) and bumped her knees on the ground and her left forehead on the sidewalk. She cried really loud and my mommy heart got broken into pieces for a few minutes. Her knees didn’t get scratched but her left forehead was a different story. While it didn’t swell, it turned red and got a small scratch. We immediately put an ice pack on it to soothe it. We also observed NJ in the next hours for other symptoms. Fortunately, she didn’t have any and even returned to her normal self just as soon as she stopped crying.

Weekend Story: Grocery Run + Angel Pizza’s Creamy Spinach Dip Pizza

Last weekend was quietly spent with my little family. I think the hubby and I only went out of the house to buy fresh meat from the supermarket. We also tried this relatively new pizza by Angel’s Pizza — creamy spinach dip pizza — which blew us away taste and price wise (i.e. double deal promo)! I now declare it’s our new favorite pizza! It’s tasty and soooo creamy because of the three cheeses (mozzarella, cheddar, and cream cheese) in it. It also has a generous amount of spinach and white onions that somehow lessen the guilt for me for having fast food for two consecutive meals on a weekend, haha.

Weekend Story: Grocery Shopping + Visit to Vermosa Sports Hub

Last weekend was quite busy and fun. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with my sister Jodie and my SIL Albie, went grocery shopping at Puregold Molito. (We like it there because the prices are cheaper and there is lesser crowd than in other supermarkets.) We then had brunch at Manam Express (also in Molito) after.

Our Sunday morning was spent at home taking care of baby NJ. In the afternoon, we took her to Vermosa Sports Hub located along Daang Hari (the side going to Aguinaldo Hi-way). There is a food bazaar there during weekends but only people 15-65 years old are allowed. We skipped it and just brought our own food (from S&R Imus). We sat down on the grass (there are pockets of grassy spaces there), ate our “baon,” and took turns looking after baby NJ who got herself busy walking around. She was so thrilled upon arriving at Vermosa because the place was massive and she saw a lot of people (with their cars, bikes, and scooters) there.

Weekend Story: Car PMS + Gifted Clothes

Last weekend was a bit busy. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby to Quezon City for our car’s preventive maintenance. It took a few hours before we were allowed to drive the car again and since we got hungry while waiting, we opted to dine at one of the restos in Banawe before going home in Bacoor. Our Sunday was spent at the condo where we did a mini photoshoot of baby NJ and her gifted clothes just for fun. She’s one lucky baby because she gets a lot of nice dresses, tops, and bottoms from our family and friends, with or without a special occasion.

Weekend Story: Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day 2021

Last weekend was a long one. Friday was Chinese New Year (CNY) and Sunday was Valentine’s Day. We did not celebrate both occasions, though. We’re non-believers, I guess. Haha, just kidding. Our CNY for instance, was spent through a quick visit to St. Pio Shrine in Libis. I was with the hubby and my MIL. It’s been a while since the last time we went there.

Weekend Story: Birthday Preps

The days leading to baby NJ’s first birthday are starting to get busy. Last weekend was no exception. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with my SIL Albie, went grocery shopping. Aside from buying food and other essentials, we made sure we have completed all the items (food and otherwise) we need in preparing the condo for our rainbow baby’s natal day. We decided to celebrate at the condo so it’s more spacious and well-ventilated. And so by Sunday, we went there and started cleaning it thoroughly. Para next weekend, lagay na lang kami ng decors and then party proper na.

Just like her christening last year, baby NJ’s birthday is going to be a family affair. The hubby and I have decided not to invite relative and friends anymore to be fair to all of them. Eh paano ba naman, godparents pa lang ni baby NJ, total of 52 persons na, hahaha. As much as we wanted to throw a big party, we cannot as we are limited by the IATF rules and regulations on covid-19 prevention. We also cannot risk catching the virus because we have four senior citizens and a baby in the family. So yeah, family celebration it is. The best thing about this set-up? Ang laking tipid saming mag-asawa, hehe.
