Away from the Mad Crowd


“The thing about Valentine's day is that people discover who are single and who to feel jealous of.”
Faye Morgan

February 14: The day lovers from around the globe has been waiting for. A day where flourists, teddy-bear stores, artisan-chocolate shops, fine-dining restos and jewellers get surplus profits due to the high demand of services and commodities on this special day.

Valentine's day it is. I vividly remember during my college days, (since my campus is just near the famous "Dang-wa") that men, even boys, traverse this chaotic district just to get the perfect dozen of long stemmed red roses. On a regular day, a dozen will only cost about two hundred and fifty, but lo and behold - it's twice the price during v-day!

But what is so special about this day that we can't make every day valentine's day? Well, as for me and my boyfriend - valentine's day is just a regular day for us. Well, not that we are hypocrites that we don't do anything to make this day extra special. Just like everyday, we do the usual "I Love You's" and visited my favorite restaurant - Romulo Cafe in Jupiter St. Makati City.

I just love this place so much - from the black and white theme of the interiors, the cozy atmosphere, and of course the best of all is the filipino food served with a classy twist (in addition: very affordable!). Thank God i was able to get a lunch reservation (since they usually get full-house and they have very limited slots for walk-ins).
