So here's the story of my Cochrane weekend: FOOD COMA. Yup, that's it in a nutshell. After losing 7 amazing pounds because of the virus I caught 2 weeks ago, I gained 3 pounds back all because of one weekend in Cochrane. All it took was an overnight stay and poof, I am a pig again! OINK!
We arrived in Cochrane 5-ish and had this amazing Nilagang Baboy with white rice. Karaoke was on, started belting out like there's no tomorrow and after just a few hours, we were eating again. This time it was pancit and lumpiang shanghai (spring rolls) and a chocolate croissant for dessert then it was time for some vodka 7, Doritos and Pilipinas Got Talent on TFC. 12-ish, I took off my sparkly glittery eye make-up and went to sleep. Zzzzz...
Here are some random photos from my fun weekend at Cochrane :)
On the way home, detour to Brag Creek

Still in my jammies watching ASAP :)
I don't know what it is with Cochrane but I always get to sleep in (we definitely stayed inside the house all weekend cos it was just too cold to go anywhere)...maybe it's the air or sleeping in someone else's bed. Whatever it is, we all woke up 9:30ish, cooked some Canadian breakky (as we call it)-- pancakes, eggs, hotdog and hot cocoa. Watched ASAP for a bit while criticizing showbiz people (a.k.a. "Ang taba naman ni __________!!! LOL!) then tuned in to Maalala Mo Kaya while drinking fresh Avocado shake made by Grace. As if we weren't full enough, we were served with Sinigang na Baboy + white rice for lunch...one of my all-time fave Filipino dishes which I don't get to eat cos I live with Jewish people and out of respect, I just don't eat pork around them.
I went to Cochrane empty-handed but I came home with a TV, a microwave, a full tummy and fun memories with my lovelies. I am blessed =)
