2017 Week 3: Home for the Weekend
January 16-22, 2017
Work is smooth sailing to date. But I’m beginning to have delays due to other meetings that were not factored in during the initial timeline planning. But I’d like to catch up first before moving timelines.
It was our father’s second death anniversary last January 21 so I went home last weekend. I took the 6 PM trip last Friday so I arrived in Baguio at around 1AM. I like this schedule because it’s like spending 2 nights at home. I might be taking this schedule moving forward. Or earlier if work schedule permits and if the body is able to report to work early with a sharp mind hehehe.
We lighted a candle, offered prayers, prepared lunch and invited some relatives over.
After lunch, I played with the kids and we took a lot of pictures together! I’m taking advantage of this because once they become teens, they might think it’s not cool goofing around with tita anymore hahaha.
On Sunday, I went to mass. The BF and I were able to go out after the mass for lunch. I also accompanied him to buy some goods at the market for him to bring home to his family in the province. *Cheese alert.* It makes my heart so happy to have witnessed that my BF has a generous and big heart. I know he has, but it’s still different if you witness it first hand. Hayayay! I said “Thank You Lord” in my mind and heart countless times that day hehehe.
After all the shopping, he went back to church and I decided to just go back to Manila earlier than planned so that I have more time to rest before another work week starts.
I saw a lot of posts in FB about the Salted Egg Potato Chips and I was curious to try it. My boss brought 1 and she said she bought it from a classmate so I asked her to order one for me. She gave it to me last Monday. Gone in 2 or 3 sittings hehehe. I had to REALLY control myself not to eat it all in one sitting. The struggle was real.
The BF and I ate at Kuya J. They already have a branch in Baguio. I know Kuya J has been around for a while but it was our first time to eat there. The food was good. We actually loved the sinigang na bangus which we ordered. But their service can still be improved. Well at least for the Baguio branch as I can’t really say the same for the other branches.
I made a no-bake cream cheese flan! I really did! I myself was surprised hahaha. I don’t know and am not really interested in cooking/baking, you know. But the cream cheese called me. I even bought a baking pan to use hahaha.
Anyway, I just followed a recipe which I found in FB. It was easy to do. I even did it again at home for Saturday’s lunch but the one I made here was better and I have a hunch it was because of the cream cheese. I used Arla on my first try and Philadelphia last Saturday. I liked the taste of Arla better though. I’ll do this again and will adjust the caramelized sugar as it was too sweet to my liking. I will also try another cream cheese.
It was my first time to try Godiva chocolate. A teammate brought it back from his trip. Thank you! I don’t see this in SM though so I’m not sure where it’s being sold here in PH.
So that’s about it.
Have a great week ahead.
