Mother's Day Celebration | Food trip, Staycation, Shop

When I booked this accommodation I did not really expect it to be in a Mother's Day. I originally planned this stay cation for Mom and Dad's wedding Anniversary but the hotel was fully booked. Good thing I moved it to a Mother's Day weekend making it really special.

I would just like to honor our Mom, for doing everything for us, all the sacrifices and struggles she has gone through raising 4 bratty kids like us. Haha. Her patience may go out of hand sometimes but she never failed to do the extra mile for us. We observed how your body changed and your skin wrinkled. You worked hard for all of us, take care of us even when you are already tired and even when you are sick.

If I may be given a chance to be a mother and a wife, I wanted to be like you. We love you mom so much. And we pray for good health and more memories together.

So our Mother's Day celebration started with a road trip in a Friday evening going to Cagayan de Oro City. We traveled quite late already and Dad's stomach is upset. He was not feeling really well, then. So our activity would really depend on his mood and condition.

We stopped at Midway for dinner since Nique has been complaining already that she's hungry.

Then we head to Cagayan de Oro. We arrived CDO for almost 9 pm already. We had a smooth check-in at 1A Express Hotel.

We had a lovely breakfast in the morning. I chose to stay in the hotel and enjoy the Internet all by myself. Mom, Dad, and Nique went out for a medical check-up at Polymedic Medical Hospital.
In the afternoon, we checked out the activities in Centrio Ayala Mall and the newly opened SM CDO Downtown Premier which actually just a few steps away from the hotel.

It was too crowded for me though. Hehe, Nique made a VLOG about her trip to Forever21. Check out the video below.
We had dinner at the hotel room, we just bought barbecue and "puso" or "hanging rice" at Centrio Ayala Mall because we already anticipated the influx of people in the restaurants and Dad was also having a fever then. It was quite sad that he spent the day at the hotel but good thing he was able to just rest and stay in bed to regain strength.

On our 3rd day, mom and dad had their alone time during breakfast while Nique and I chose to spend few more minutes in bed.

We then attended the Eucharist at the Nazareno Parish church another walking distance destination very near the hotel. Walked our way from the hotel to Centrio Ayala Mall overpass and cross the overpass to Gaisano Mall. The Nazareno Church is just beside the Gaisano Mall.

After the Eucharist, we checked out from the hotel and head to SM City — CDO (Uptown) for lunch. Well, we chose to eat there because we already anticipated the crowd at the malls near the hotel. And we were never wrong because it was peaceful in SM City CDO hehe.
We had lunch at Harbour City, my all-time favorite! Thank you for sponsoring lunch Kuya.

After SM CITY we head to SNR because mom wanted to buy Nutella (her favorite) but as expected we went home with a lot of things (lol).

We head back home to Iligan City and had Mother's Day Dinner at Sunburst Iligan. It was my first time in their new store since it opened.

So that's how we spent mother's day! How about you? How did you and your family spent Mother's day last weekend? Comment below.
