I hardly have posts related to my social life and quality time with my husband because I really don’t have anything to blog about. I rarely get to meet up with non-office friends. I don’t mind that. However, couple time with my husband, I do miss. He works on the night shift so on weekdays, we get to see each other for about 15-30 minutes only. The good thing about that is after 8 years of being together, I still am excited to see him.
Recently, Franco and I made a deal that once a month, we will file a leave on the same day and go out on a date. There is nothing fancy or extraordinary about our date nights but I would like to document what a typical date is like. When we grow old, I would like to look back at how the small things made our relationship stronger and exciting.
Would you believe I haven’t stepped inside Rockwell Mall? I lived in Makati from 2004 to 2009. In those five years, my favorite malls were Makati Cinema Square and Waltermart. Those are still my favorite and Franco’s too. We tried to go down the memory lane and visited both malls last Friday. We ate in the same shawarma stall that we loved as boyfriend-girlfriend.
We had a quick trip to the grocery to buy 2 dozens of our favorite hotdogs and garlic longganizas. Promise, the cheezy franks in Waltermart are the best!! I think the brand is Mother’s Best or Earth’s Best. It is in the buy per piece section.
We also hoarded on our current favorite sweet treats – strawberry chocolate chips from Meiji. I initially just got two packs but dear hubby insisted that we get more since Aki and Chloe and Margaux like the chocolates too. I shamed my husband by asking him to pose for photo as the cashier was pretending not to laugh. He obliged and that is why I love him.
We went to Japan Home where I got two vety cute pancake pans. Will blog about them shortly.
Then to MCS we went. A trip to MCS is never complete without shopping for deebidees at the basement and for second hand books and back issue magazines in our favorite branch of Booksale. These kids would agree that the MCS Booksale branch is very conducive for reading. We went home with 7 books for Aki and one magazine each for us
