MNL Diaries: See you again, MNL (2015)

Hello, dolls!! Hello, weekend!!! <3 This weekend went by so fast — and I love it!! I am finally enjoying my weekend with #MyABoys!! So if you have noticed, my blog is starting to be active again. This year, I am committing to a lot of things this year, one of which is to post more! So far, with my 4th entry this month, I think I am doing pretty well 😛

A and I are starting to seriously plan our trips this year. We are only 2 months away from our anniversary so I know reservations have to made soon because with all of the events and gatherings we have for some of the weekends in between, we pretty much only have a month left to get this trip planned!

All the planning and researching are making me think about Manila a lot. So for my entry this weekend, I would like to share with you our last few days in MNL which will conclude our MNL trip in 2015. And a little bit of our first month as a married couple in Baltimore.

I always make sure I see my best friends more than once when we are in Manila. The last one is always a dinner that I host at home. We call it “rooftop” dinners! lol

This one is extra special because I wanted to thank them for being my rock when I was planning my wedding and when I said I do <3

Surprised the girls with a copy of one of my favorite pictures of us on my wedding day and a card, of course, to express how much I appreciate them <3

First time to play Monopoly deal!! There were lots of screaming and laughing that night.

We ended the night the way that we always do….sleepover!! <3 Doesn’t matter if I am already married…sleepovers with my girls will forever be on the list of things that we will look forward to whenever we are together!

Teary-eyed. I can never get used to it. Airport sendoffs are always sad for all of us. No matter how much we try to be positive, being away from each other leaves a void in our hearts.

I’ve heard good things about Zen West. I think the food is good, but the service that we got was pretty bad..

Ordered a dessert (that they do not make in house) to make up for the bad service.
