When your visiting in-laws in the Philippines things can get a bit boring if everything orientates around your partners return. The best advice I can give is book into a hotel near relatives as you can be there when needed but can also disappear when not.
There isn’t anything wrong with doing this as for example we currently have several OFW’s stopping in our apartments who prefer to have their own space. Air conditioning, cable TV a place to escape events when tired etc. is important.
