Let me start by apologizing for that incredibly creative title, aaaand I’ll try to get better with it. Hopefully soon. No promises though haha 😉
But no, really, it was a long weekend with the holiday falling on a Monday. And I think it’s a good way of starting this blog along with the celebration of my final weekend shift at work (Yey!)
Dinner at BGC Mercato
To celebrate this milestone, my friend Bryan and I went to BGC Mercato which is about 3 minutes away from office but for some reason it’s only my second time in there. We had lechon sisig with “one cup of rice” (They claim that it was one cup. It wasn’t one cup). Then afterwards, a Nutella crepe for a taste of nostalgia from when I tried it for the first time in Germany ages ago.
And being the noob blogger that I am, I didn’t take any photos aside from this:
Second photo: credits to Bryan’s amazing photography skills which may land him a job as the next Magnum P.I.
Anyway… The weekend doesn’t end there — and so does the celebration 😁
Ayala Museum: History in Color
I originally planned a whole day food adventure with Mama at Binondo (Chinatown) but the weather forecast promised rainfall and thunderstorms by afternoon. Fact check: My mom and I are part gremlins and we, under any circumstances, should never get wet. Kidding. But we had to change plans so we ended up traveling to the distant lands of Ayala.
By chance, we passed by Ayala Museum and saw that they were holding an exhibit entitled History in Color, and the admission was free! (anything free, you got me 😉)
The exhibit showed photos of the past remastered and blown up into colorful pieces. Their subjects range from historical events to the locals of far flung provinces to magnificent scenery caught on cam. All captured in this country *proud citizen*
And learning from our little mishap the day before, Mama and I took the chance to snap some photos of our own 😁
Pigging Out at Don Henrico’s
The last leg of this #DontWasteTheWeekend post is when we ate our hearts out at Don Henrico’s at Greenbelt 1. It was definitely not a meal for 2, but we finished it anyway 😁 You can never go wrong with pizza!
We ordered Caesar’s Salad, Rustic Italian Pizza, and X.O. Seafood Pasta. I won’t dive into anymore details. All you need to know is that it was all good. Happiness.
Aaaaand that’s how I spent my long weekend. How was yours? #DontWasteTheWeekend!
