Lifestyle Parenting Shopping Travel WAHM Diaries

Messy Wins: Aldub + Shopping with Yuri + Travel Plans

I love how time flies so fast when it’s Monday and then all of a sudden, it’s already Friday.

I hate how time flies so fast when it’s Friday night and then, you look away for a second, and it’s already Sunday night. Like right now.

But I don’t lament Mondays for being Mondays. I should be thankful I have a job to look forward to. It’s just the waking-up-early-to-get-to-work-immediately that I’m not very enthusiastic about. For those who don’t know, my work days begin in bed before 6 am.

So let’s just talk about the weekend before it officially ends. 

Weekend was fun and a bit, well, trying, but it was still fun. If you’re wondering why I mentioned AlDub, no, I’m not about to go fangirling again. Even though the episode last Saturday was also oh-so-kilig, for me, this episode is still the best one so far. I just love how raw it was. Wala lang.

AlDub Saturday

So no, I’m not going to write about my favourite love team again – – I’ll spare you that haha. But I did spend a good part of my Saturday in a crowded gym (read: covered basketball court) watching a live viewing of the episode.

You might be wondering why when I have a perfectly working TV at home. Well, my friend Sarah was scheduled to cover the Davao coverage (I don’t even know what words to use and I’m too tired to think of the right terms) and, since the location was just 5 minutes away from my house (a good 10-minute walk), our other friend/work colleague Jona and I decided to show up for support.


Picture from Sarah

We were excited to so support her, of course, but what Jona and I weren’t prepared for was watching the entire telecast in that crowded gym for more than 2 hours. We got there around 10 minutes before 1 pm, fully expecting to be featured in Eat Bulaga (we were not planning on showing our faces to the camera…) at 1 pm. We expected to be back in my house before Alden or Maine makes an appearance.

All of us, including Sarah, didn’t how they’ll show Davao a few minutes before the entire episode ends. We ended up spending the entire freaking show there haha. It was a different experience, quite fun in some ways, but we couldn’t express our kilig as much as we could have at home haha. Jona kept pulling my hair though!

Win? Learning the art of patience. Haha!

Grocery with Yuri

Then earlier this day (Sunday), Yuri and I went grocery shopping. I don’t know what’s with malls, but Yuri is always in his element when he’s inside one. He’s at home inside any mall in any city, but his favourite is SM Lanang Premier. Maybe because we’re always there.

What's that little boy doing behind me?

So earlier, we were off to pay for our groceries, the son of the woman before us in the line started having tantrums. As in he lied down on the floor and starting thrashing and screaming and rolling around. Because he wanted to open the tub of ice cream they haven’t paid for yet and eat it. The boy was about 4 or 5 years old.

The mum (who didn’t remove her cart AND basket after paying for their groceries – – major pet peave! – – and I had to remove them) only laughed awkwardly and told the yaya to discipline the child (read: take him away). I was scared that my impressionable 3-year old would follow the boy’s example but Yuri is more interested in striking up conversation with a cute little girl twice his age.

Win? Thank goodness for little girls. Okay, stop teasing.

Travel Plans

And last but not the least, when Jona and Sarah were here yesterday, we made some travel plans for Christmas. We finally decided on a place, and I was able to discover a highland resort that looks promising but affordable. I already sent an inquiry to their Facebook page but haven’t gotten a response yet – – probably because it’s still the weekend duh. Hopefully we can have a room booked in advance so we won’t have anything to worry about before Christmas.

Win? I’ll finally able to scratch my travel itch haha.
