A day of Love

What is it with Valentines Day that people are pretty much preoccupied on where to celebrate it or what to give to their loved ones on this day? Oh wait, it's a day to make someone special, that is. But I am pretty much sure that everyday can be special not just Valentines day. Because there should not be a waste of moment where you show your loved ones how much you value them and love them. People work their ass off just to provide for their family (J is one of them) but TIME is the most essential thing you can give your family and in time you can bring so much joy.

To avoid the traffic and the heart's day rush we had our pre-valentine dinner a day before and it was our monthsary also (yes we do commemorate it still). It was a simple family dinner with our kids. At first we were so hesitant to have a dinner date due to yayaless situation but I said, I don't think we have to sacrifice a dinner date just because we don't have a nanny. We can enjoy it as a family though.

Months ago, I purchased a food voucher from cashcashpinoy and it was primarily intended for a surprise dinner date for J but because the voucher didn't have a block out date on Valentines eve, I decided to have it booked then. 

We had dinner at Royal Seafood Restaurant and enjoyed the fine dining ambiance with the kids. I am glad that at least they have a high chair (improvised) available for babies. The voucher includes steamed shrimps, garlic rice, spinach soup, taro puff and assorted cold cuts which i good for four pax. It was originally priced at p1,600 and only paid p499 for the meal. Little boy enjoyed the rice so much and spinach soup for my little girl.

This is one of our bonding moments that we should do more often and enjoy as a family. Even if it is close to impossible to dine with the kids, it is one way of molding them how to behave in a place like this. Glad they didn't pull the grumpy attitude while we are having dinner.
