Day 6 of PH Wedding Vacation: Meeting of the Families

Image
It's the day before our Catholic wedding! I can't remember how I felt - scared? Nervous? Maybe. All I know is I'm going through the execution of all our planning for the last 8 months!

Breakfast Since we didn't have any plans for the morning (thanks to Ms. Myna, Mitch, and Wayne for helping us with errands that we were able to have a relaxing morning), we had KFC for breakfast. I ordered A LOT of food for two people. What diet? What wedding? LOL!

After breakfast, Kuya Lito arrived, and we went down with a suitcase of all the things we need for the big day.
Lunch We went to Max's along Roxas Blvd to have lunch with both families. It's the first time both Jomar's family and my family are meeting. Yes, they're meeting the day before our wedding. Crazy, right?
After our fun lunch, we went to the Bayleaf Hotel Intramuros to check-in. We paid for hotel accommodation for both families (essentially, our entourage). Having all of us nearby reduced my anxiety for…

Day 5 of PH Wedding Vacation: Day with the In-Laws

Sorry for not posting again. I'm not sure what happened, but I just forgot to continue blogging.


Today, we spent the whole day in Naic, Cavite where Jomar grew up. It was Nanay's (my mother-in-law) birthday. It was the only day this trip that we could spend with Jomar's family, so we spent the whole day here until around 5:00 PM.

Breakfast The day before I called Amber to order some The Original Pancit Malabon (because it's my only chance) and Pork BBQ (because the Filipino BBQ in Vancouver is no match for the one from the Philippines).
For breakfast, we went to Ministop (where there is a surprisingly long line) and end up eating four random Kariman flavours. Then, at precisely 8 AM, Kuya Lito picked us up at Go Hotel. We went to pick-up the food from Amber. I'm so excited to eat! Food priority!
Lunch We arrived in Naic, Cavite - specifically, Jossel's beautiful home a little bit before 10 AM. We're greeted by this little guy, it's our new nephew, Matt …

Day 4 of PH Wedding Vacation: Joy

Image
It's our 4th day in Manila. It's Wednesday, July 3, only three days before the wedding.

Breakfast Today, we decided to go to Pan de Manila for some pandesal breakfast. We also got cafe mocha (because they don't have hot chocolates) and ate it at the store. This is the most nostalgic breakfast so far. After that, we decided to buy some taho.




Lunch For lunch, we went to one of our favourite restaurants, Alex III (Alex the Third) in Quezon City. They used to have boneless crispy pata which everyone loved (except me because I don't eat crispy pata).

Our whole family is there (including father). The lunch is to celebrate Kuya's graduation, so we extended the invite to Uncle Deo, Aunt Vickie, and cousin Stacy as well as Uncle Fred and cousin Raf. We ordered a lot of good food.

Unfortunately, Jomar and I had to leave early because we really want to drop by QSR to meet and catch-up with Ms. Myna.
QSR and Ninang Myna We arrived at QSR between 2:00 PM to 2:30 PM. We saw Mang…
