Was packed! But I was still able to catch up on my lost hours of sleep.
Saturday: Practically spent the whole morning sleeping. Afternoon, we (Me, Paolo and his dad) had to go to Lipa Batangas. Paolo's tito passed away so we had to go there to attend the wake. Traffic was really bad that it took us 4 hours to reach Lipa. We left our house at around 4pm and arrived past 8 na. We were so hungry by then so we had to eat dinner first at a nearby restaurant before heading to the cathedral where the wake was. When we arrived at around 9pm, most of the people already left. Paolo's mom had already been complaining that ang tagal daw namin dumating. We stayed there till 11.. mas matagal pa yung travel time namin than the time we actually stayed at the wake. Balikan lang kami so we had to leave din early since we were going back the next day for the funeral.
Sunday: We had to wake up early since the funeral service will be at 12nn. Had to drag myself out of the bed coz I was still tired from that road trip yesterday. This time however, our travel was a lot lighter. There was little or no traffic at all at SLEX. It was raining during the service so Paolo and me opted to just stay in the car. We left Lipa at around 2 and had lunch at Pancake House in SLEX.
While we were there, as usual, the relatives were asking again if I was already pregnant. This is why I am already at the point where I am starting to dislike attending family affairs. We just responded to them that wala pa talaga and that we are "working" on it. This time, his cousin suggested "hilot". As I have written here, my mom is a doctor and being one, we were not raised to believe in this practice. No offense to the believers of hilot but nobody in our family had hilot. His cousin was claiming that another cousin who was trying to get preggy for almost a year had hilot and she got pregnant. Being "desperate", I told Paolo that we should give it a try. Maybe this was just what we needed. So maybe in the coming weeks, this manhihilot will be coming over to our house. I'll let you all know how it will turn out.
On a lighter note, Paolo and I decided to go on a vacation. A trip that will just be the two of us. In short, our long overdue honeymoon. For the past 2 years. our trips abroad and out of town were either with our friends, his family or mine. We are planning to go to Hong Kong on October 31 to November 2 to be exact. No confirmed bookings yet as we are still looking for hotels in Hong Kong and try to get our free tickets from PAL from our earned miles. We might squeeze in a day trip to Macau to check out their own version of Las Vegas. This will be a very exciting adventure!
