My Valentine Date

Being married to someone who works to serve and protect my countrymen, holidays always are celebrated on a special time which means either late or early. I was quite lucky the other day as I got to be treated by the hubby to an early Valentine celebration. Nothing fancy as always but nevertheless meaningful. 


We found this restaurant that had the usual cute decorations that made me reminisce the first time I fell in love with someone. 


My date chose to feast on chicken and rice and on sauteed squid, his all time favorite.



While I ordered "fresh lumpia"...fresh vegetables wrapped with egg crepe with sweet tasting sauce garnished with peanuts. 




We shared a dessert that I enjoyed so much! Cooled fruits in season mixed with milk, topped with ice cream served in a coconut. I loved scraping off the coconut meat at the bottom and savoring its creamy taste. 


Afterwards he bought me what I love the most these days...pink roses! aaahhh with roots so I got to plant them at home to continuously shower me with blooms.


And then there were these heart-shaped donuts that completely melted my heart...that I didn't whine too much when he had to be called back to work before midnight...not without a promise of perhaps being able to take me out on Valentine's eve itself...who knows, I just might be lucky again...

Love isn't about the amount of time we spend together but about that wonderful, hard to fathom feeling of wanting to be with a person all the days of our lives....
Though this may be a few days late......Happy Heart's Day dear friends...do spread the sweetness....
