Who doesn’t look forward to weekends? It’s the time to unwind after a long week, or simply be with loved ones whom you couldn’t fit in your busy schedule during the week. Weekends are also time for some recreation, the things you do so you are not all work and no play. You can watch movies or stage plays, attend music festivals and concerts, or play a game or two at the casino. The good news is, you can do all of them in Metro Manila this weekend.
