2018 Week 9: Weekend At Home | Panagbenga | New Room Paint

February 26 – March 4, 2018

I went home to Baguio last weekend for some R&R and a special errand.

I left Manila on Friday evening and arrived in Baguio after 3.5 hours! I booked at JoyBus so that the route will be SCTEX and TPLEX without stopovers.

The very first thing I did as soon as I arrived was to check on my newly painted room. I love how it turned out. It’s waaaayyyy more relaxing than its multi-colored predecessor. While it was expensive to redo it, I’m glad I pushed for this project.

The color is a lighter version of whipple blue from Titan Paint’s brochure. The painters mixed 3 color options and my brother picked the best choice from there. Basta I loved how it turned out kasi ang aliwalas talaga and nakaka-relax yung color.

I spent a few hours on Saturday morning putting things back in my room. I am so back in my room hahaha!

My nieces and one of my grandchildren went out in the afternoon for some Session Road in Bloom experience. But first, lunch at Jack’s Restaurant. My auntie met us too.

In the evening, the little ones went home with my sister and brother-in-law while my aunt, teenager niece and I stayed behind for the night market hihihi!

↑Waiting for the night market to start at 9PM. Literal palang night ang simula nito hahahaha!

There were a lot of nice pieces but not for my size hahahaha. Saklap. But I was able to buy an outfit for my niece’s confirmation in April. Sya talaga nakinabang bilang ang payat nya hahahaha. Even my aunt was a little sad because wala rin syang mahanap na cardigan hahaha. Ako jogging pants na tig bente lang naman ang hanap ko. Merong isa wahahaha.

On Sunday, I invited some aunties and uncles for an early birthday lunch and for an announcement hihihi.

↑My sweet nephew brought a cake, which unfortunately I was not able to taste as we got busy after lunch. Well, I ate two of the cherries hehe.

The BF and I had dinner before my 9PM trip. We ate at Pizza Hut because it is near the terminal and there were still seats available. We were on the right side of the city, and near the window, therefore we had a glimpse of the fireworks that officially closed the Panagbenga 2018.

The announcement? Suffice to say that someone needs to take dieting seriously and that same someone also needs to start planning for a wedding  😀  😛 .

Have a great week ahead.

2017 Week 9: Internment | 50 Years | Panagbenga Finale

February 27 – March 5, 2017

I miss cross stitching in the mornings. The project we are working on was on its user acceptance testing phase last week so we were working with our testers for at least 4 hours per day. Most of them also work on graveyard shift so we had to adjust our shifts as well. It was tiring to be juggling more than 10 testers and addressing their questions one after the other. Pagoda cold wave lotion at hagardo versoza talaga. But I will do anything just to deploy this piece so that hopefully, it will be on its own moving forward and no need to baby it. Hay.

We still have the deployment before I can have a deep sigh of relief. Crossing my fingers and praying to all the angels in heaven that there won’t be glitches.

So there, no time for cross stitching because I opted to sleep and rest on my free time.

Anyway, moving on.

I was in Baguio last weekend yey!

It was my college BFF’s dad’s internment. Awww, Papsy huhuhu. I feel sad for my friend. And I am glad that I was able to spend even just a few hours with her and her family. It is her first loss of an immediate family member so I know what she feels even if she’s showing a strong stance. And I am so touched that her siblings still remember me because it has been years since the last time I have seen most of them.

After the funeral, I met up with my tita and her daughter to go to Session Road in Bloom. Session Road in Bloom is part of the Panagbenga Festival and for the whole of last week, Session Road was closed to vehicles to give way for booths selling different goods. There were a lot of people so that we just practically walked up and down Session Road, making a few stops to buy puto bumbong, ice cream, earrings for my maarteng niece, and singkamas.

Sunday was BF-GF time, well at least after his shift. He and some parishioners were invited to a 50th Wedding anniversary celebration at lunch time and he tagged me along. Good thing that I know the couple way back in the ’90s because we were schoolmates with their kids, so it was not so awkward going to their home hihihi.

But wow! 50 years! I am always amazed ever time I hear about couples who are able to stick with each other that long. That’s practically more than half of their lives. Salute to them.

After the BF’s shift, we went to where else? See Session Road in Bloom again hehehehe. But we were getting tired walking around with a lot of people also trying to catch the last day so we decided to just eat hehehe. We went to Max’s because this was the first we saw that was not yet full haha. But since I love their sizzling tofu, it was a good choice for me.

Just after dinner, the fireworks started! The fireworks was the finale to the Panagbenga Festival. *Cheese alert* Hay sobrang kinilig ako during this time. We were just in the middle of Session Road, holding hands, while watching the fireworks. Bow.

There was a concert going on too so we stayed for a while as we had spare time to watch and take some wefies before my scheduled trip.

And that’s it.

Pictures!
