Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Hope you had a grand time frolicking in the meadow, dancing in the rain and kissing each other until your lips start to bleed haha!

As I have said at the start of this year, I am back to blog the exciting and the mundane in my life. D, my ever-dashing and handsome partner, probed about my Valentine's day last year with ex. As I racked my brain for that nugget of memory, all I see and hear is the static, colored TV. And so here I am, typing away the events that warmed, excited and titillated the senses. (what are you thinking eh?)

This 14th of February was a day of many firsts. Albeit cliche, I wanted to have a somewhat special meal to share with with D. Ninyo's near Katipunan Avenue was my first choice, but they only served a shocking 12-course degustation worth a whopping P2,500 per head. Sadly, we don't have allowances that would allow such spending! Ok, this is now written in my non-existent bucket list.

I ended up placing a reservation for the Masquerade event of Cravings. All turned out to be splendid. We enjoyed a scrumptious feast of salads, especially the creamy potatoes, pumpkin soup with croutons, the special dishes of prawns and pasta as well as the bacon-wrapped minced beef with wine and cherry sauce and the strawberry flavored dessert in a shot glass. (Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture! Grr!) Drinking red wine was a first for D. He didn't like the taste the taste at all given the mild contortions on his face as he took a gulp haha! My D is still such a young heart =)

D and I were surprised to receive so many giveaways from Cravings! There was complimentary wine, masquerade-themed photo booth, a plush teddy bear and even two tickets to Regine's and Ogie's concert (sorry, we're not fans haha!). All in all, it was a very fulfilling dinner for a quarter of the price if we had eaten at Ninyo's.

It was also our first time to light up a heart-shaped lantern. Together with two other couples, we waited for nightfall to experience such a wonderful sight. In the beginning, the lantern seemed to wobble in the air as the wind was kind of strong. To our horror, it even hit one of the structures near us. Thankfully, no buildings were sacrificed just so that some kids could light up lanterns.

We were three couples - we being the only same-sex couple. For some reason, I feel proud about this fact. Perhaps it's just really nice to be around with other friends and couples without having to worry about what others might think.

That's about it. Hope you had a blast as well!
