I am planning to bring the little one to the mall and let her enjoy her favorite kiddie rides. In fact, last night she already mentioned that she want to go to (SM) Megamall. I also scheduled one-day off from work on the 20th. Since hubby is not around to celebrate our wedding anniversary with on that day, I decided to cancel my leave.
How about you, what are your plans for these long weekends?
