Long Weekends Part 1

We reached our home in Nueva Ecija at around 9PM. We might be earlier if we haven't encounter traffic at Baliuag, Bulacan area. Due to tiredness, we just took our dinner and have our sleep.

The following day, we woke up early because Matt wants to go out already and see the fishes as promised by Papa. 

Searching what to cook for breakfast, Mama told me to cook the eggs as well as the instant noodles. Then I saw bunch of different freshly picked veggies in the backyard and I decided to cook "dinengdeng" (an Ilocano dish) with a twist. Instead of directly cooking it in boiling water, I fried the veggies (round eggplant, okra, kamote taps and katuray flowers) before adding the soup. That was really delicious. Papa told me that the smell alone can already tell.

After breakfast, we went to Mommy's customer to deliver the ordered items (yes, we are still working even on holidays, LOL) together Papa, my sister and her daughter since we will proceed at CLSU Dairy to buy some of their products like pastillas de leche, polvoron, yogurt, and flavored milk drink. It was also Matt's chance to see carabaos in live. Of course, we have some photo sessions before going to the next spot, the feeding fishes (Matt's favorite hang-out in CLSU).
Yum! Yum! Yum!
Kudos to the Carabao!

Before lunch, we headed to the Poblacion to deliver another set of items for our high school classmate's order before proceeding to Lupao to fetch Mommy's sister and her daugther. Since it was raining, I was able to take pictures of the foggy mountains on the way (Sadly, most areas in the mountains does not have trees already). We have our lunch at MIL's house and spend the rest of the day before going back to our house.

That's is our first day of our long weekend.
