Year in and year out, we’ve usually “celebrated” Valentine’s day through some fancy dinner. This year, however, just when we thought that financial constraints will render us unable to have a memorable Valentine’s Day, God made a way for us to celebrate at almost no cost.
1. Last December, a client gifted me with a voucher for a deluxe room stay at Linden Suites in Ortigas. The other day, upon realizing that my IELTS Speaking test is scheduled at 7am in an Ortigas venue, we decided to finally use the voucher. Barely did we realize that the eve before the test actually falls on Valentine’s Day. 😊
When we booked the room, my client upgraded us to a one bedroom suite. 😊
2. I’ve been craving for Din Tai Fung Xiao Long Bao for some time now; however we’ve been on a budget. Today though, a client gave me P2,000 to compensate for her counter-party’s failure to show up. The amount allowed us to finally indulge that craving. 😊
3. We were unable to plan where we can have a romantic dinner…good thing that Marufuku, a well-regarded Japanese restaurant was just a few steps away…literally
Just after we were told that there was no more available table, and when, after wandering about, we were about to have a petty argument for not planning tonight’s dinner, we decided to circle back to the restaurant. Good thing we came back and were advised that tables had just cleared up. The photos below really speak for themselves. Too bad we weren’t able to take a photo of that mouth-watering melts-in-your-mouth wagyu skewer. Yey for Marufuku!
Now, obviously, we’re super full! Yey, Lord! You are so good! Indeed, You show Your glory!
