Kadayawan, Succulents, and the Long Weekend

Hey guys, how was your long weekend?

I’m quite fortunate because I live in Davao City and Ninoy Aquino Day fell right after the Kadayawan holiday, making our local holiday 4 days long! I didn’t get a 4-day weekend though because I worked last Friday (I had my holiday last Thursday instead because I need to make our weekly newsletter every Friday). But it was still great because no school = more time to rest!

Dress worn as shirt from an online store, Forever 21 denim shorts, Toms, Coach (I am aware that I need to lose a LOT of weight lololol)

I wasn’t able to take part in any festivities because it’s been a busy weekend. My entire Saturday was spent doing real estate broker duties, while Sunday was for school-mom duties. It’s the General Assembly at Yuri’s school and we did groceries after. I also spent some time training our new helper (Lord, thank you!).

But I was able to go visit SM Ecoland’s yearly Agricultural Trade Fair and see a lot of nice flora. As mentioned in my last post, I was also able to fit in going to Miniso and did a little shopping! Honestly, I don’t have a green thumb so I just wen along while my mother looked for succulents (her new “project”) and my older brother looked for bonsai stuff. However, I came to appreciate just how pretty succulents are! Look at these:

I’m sure they’ve been gaining popularity because more people are living in apartments and condominiums and even houses without a lot of space for a garden. With succulents, space and soil is not a problem. You don’t even need to water them often! I don’t have budget for plants (as I’m in tipid and ipon mode) but I’ll probably get succulents if gardening ever appeals to me.

I wanted to get a lemon tree for myself but I’m afraid I’d just kill it

Also, I found a little free time last Sunday and changed my header again teehee. How do you like it? I wasn’t actually planning on changing my header. However, while browsing the internet, I found this cute, free (with attribution) watercolor vector of a boy jumping on a trampoline. Yuri plays on the trampoline (our neighbor’s, hehe) virtually everyday so it fits him! He’s a very active boy and afternoons are filled with play and ~mess~ so I think it just fits my blog to a T. What do you think?

    Wow, saya naman ng 4 days long weekend. I’m not fond of plants and flowers kasi hindi naman tumatagal buhay nung mga tinatanim ko. Hehehe! Si hubby mas madalas magtanim sa amin. 🙂

    Same here sis, I don’t have a green thumb either and actually killed countless of our indoor plants. Hehe. As of now, we only had 1 plant for the center table to join the welcome plants that I managed to kept alive😅. I have long been eyeing those succulents or bonsai, maybe I’ll try those next time. I recently ordered airplants online for our bathrooms and just waiting to be delivered. I hope it lasts, if not, the succulents were next to try.😍
