Beautiful Sunday# 205 - Holy Week Break

Happy Easter! The Holy Week break is over. As always, where did time go? I spent the Holy Week at home. #TeamBahay Hahaha Food, family, and a lot of sleep. How often can you experience these? I forgot, my Korean Drama marathon. I'm loving Descendants of the Sun, led by another Korean crush. Song Joong Ki! I love him ever since I watched his former drama series, Innocent Man. If I'm not mistaken, this was the last drama series he had prior to his mandatory military stint. As mentioned by my friend Jenny, all male Korean citizens in their 20s are required to undergo military training for 18 months. I patiently waited for the airing of the drama series on KBS World. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get synced with their schedule. For some reason, I think some programs are aired earlier than what was provided in their schedule. While there are always sites to offer online streaming, I'm constrained with a decent internet connection. So there, story of my life. Hahaha In between the Holy Week break, I promised myself to squeeze in some work. Unfortunately, as of typing this, I think I need to do unleash my favorite skill again. Cramming! Examination papers to check, freelance works and some office work to review. Send me some miracle! Hahaha

Days before the Holy Week break, it has been a tradition to hoard take home some good food. Becky's Swiss Chocolate Cake will never be forgotten. I believe it has been a while since I last enjoyed the marshmallow icing, mocha butter cream inside and toffee crunch pieces.

Another holiday family favorite is nachos,cheese and veggies. This has become a staple treat every holiday break.

Saw this nice nook of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at The Venice Grand Canal Mall 

A's birthday treat :-) before the holy week break

Before Sunday ended, I went to the mall with my mother. Grown up concerns and unexpected home related purchases.... I also felt the need to go out as I have been on self-imposed house arrest since Thursday. I took advantage of the time to buy unhealthy dinner takeaway. I ended the day with a great dinner with the family, watching forever the replays of Descendants of the Sun and checking out the freelance works. Where will this ever end? :) 

It's the last week of March tomorrow. While April marks the summer months here, I'm beginning to feel the summer heat since the Holy Week started. There are no travel plans for the summer. However, I have again an overflowing leave credits to consider. I have to schedule and utilize these leave credits. Otherwise, they will just be forfeited for nothing. With the end of my second semester classes, I'm looking forward to concentrate on my office work and finally end all the pending freelance works. 


  1. Oh that chocolate cake with marshmallow icing sounds delicious; I would try it if I saw it. I hope you use all your leave credits, even to stay home and rest is refreshing. Have a Blessed Easter today.

  2. One of my friends, who also happens to 'supply' me with KDramas, also recommended Descendants of the Sun. I'm currently watching Oh My Ghost, kaso episode 2 pa lang ako. :p

  3. Hindi pa ata ako nakatikim ng cake ni Aling Becky. Looks yummy! Ay naku, yan ang hate ko, yung napo-forfeit ang leave credits. Waaaah, sayang diba, lalo na kung hindi naman pala-absent ang empleyado. Pag gusto ko naman yung forced leave credits ko, natataon na may event kami so hindi ako papayagan ni boss. Haaay, buhay. Ang iniiiiiit na, summer na!!! :)

  4. I love the design of the plastic eggs!San yan nabibili? perfect for my kids as toys... I love the outfit in the magazine.. lakas mka classy!
