the weekend that was

just checking in once again! ohh, i miss those days when i'd blog everynight! this past week, i wasn't even able to open my laptop even to check my mail! now, it's 3 in the morning and i just woke up, i was still wearing my office clothes... again! these past 2 weeks, i'd come home at night and just fall on the bed, sometimes waking up with my office uniform still on, sometimes wearing my pambahay because was able to change my clothes without me knowing it. (thanks hon!)
anyway, let me just share that we had a very hectic weekend last week. saturday was spent at home the whole day, trying to get ready for my upcoming interview at work, that afternoon i met up with hubby at riverbanks and we went to the World Trade Center in Manila for the carshow. they mostly had new cars on display, some set-up cars were on the extension area. hubby had a blast! we even saw the group Mocha perform, they had a mini-concert at the carshow. i have to admit, i always thought those girls we the typical talentless girls with great bods who were thrown in together and launched as the greatest singing sensation, boy was i wrong! they were oozing with talent, the sing and dance superbly and their lead singer, Mocha, was a great host as well. hubby and i were impressed, as well as the whole crowd! they sang cover songs from beyonce, the pussycat dolls and spice girls, and of course some of their own songs. after the show, we went on looking at the cars, hubby even had the chance to talk to once of the race drivers of a red honda, i can't tell you guys what they were talking about because it was all technical blah blah for me =)

sunday morning was spent ironing all of my and hubby's uniform. sunday afternoon was spent at apple's austin's party at marist school. he had a sports theme going for his party. bea came in a tennis attire, complete with a sweat band and wrist bands from osh kosh. cutie!

too bad bea couldn't join in most of the games since she was too young, but when it was time for the bring me game, we actively participated. it was quite embarassing, but when the host asked for a coin with a hole ( a 5 centavo coin) , there were only 2 of us who came up with one... hehehe. at least bea got a prize. she also won for bringing a feeding bottle (which contained only water, as always) but bea got the most prizes for bringing a dancing mommy and a singing daddy... 'nuff said. hahaha!!!

after this fun afternoon, we proceeded to laguna for an overnight stay at splash mountain. when we got there, the hotel was already fully booked! we were then referred to the newly built hotel nearby Oasis Hotel, which was owned and operated by the same people. when we got there, it was more quite and relaxing, however the rates were not relaxing at all! good thing we talked to the receptionist and she kind enough to give us a discount.

that night we snuck in our little rice cooker and water heater. shhh! we had noodles, and canned tuna too. so we can save on our food. hehehe... we also steamed chicken hotdogs for breakfast. tipid! *wink*

bea had a great time, this is her third time to swim and i she definitely enjoyed it! plus the water was warm, just the way she likes it. she had fun on the pool slides and rode in her floater most of the time. they also had a playground where she tried the swings.

after lunch, we packed up and left for home. the travel home was fast! none of the expected traffic along the highway, although the roads were being repaired, it caused no problems.

when we got home, we were all so tired, all of us except the little girl who was able to take a nap in the car. she was her usual energetic self bounding out of the car eagerly telling her lolo of her adventures. now if only she'd eat and drink her milk properly, we'd take her out more often. even while in laguna, feeding her was a struggle. argh!

anyway, that was the weekend that was. now, a saturday, i'm off to our company outing in fontana. too bad i couldn't take hubby and bea along. no companions this year. oh well.

no karen, di ako organized. pero i'm really trying.. tina-try ko na bawasan ang mga abubot lalo kung di naman ginagamit.. mas masarap daw ang buhay pag clutter-free :D

Hi Karen. Thanks for sharing these fun family moments. We missed that car show because we were out of town.

Glad you had a relaxing time at the resort. Saving money on food is a wise decision.

If you have time, I tagged you on my blog (Link Building). I'll post it in a while.

Happy weekend.
