On Valentine's Day, the last thing you want to do is get stuck in a Netflix and takeout rut—or worse, end up at a cheesy, overpriced, and decidedly unoriginal prix-fixe dinner. Whether you're single, coupled up, or somewhere in between, ensure your V-Day is free of clichés and not at all boring with these ideas.
A second first date.
Throw back to where it all started by recreating your first date. Order the same foods, request the same songs, and see how many details you can recall from your first kiss. This is a great way to reflame all your first together and realise how far you’ve gone through the years.
With everything constantly on-the-go, it's nice to loosen up and spend a calming day being pampered with your partner. Head on to Luljietta hanging garden spa for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience to remember with its mountainside pools, decades-old balete trees, and stunning views of Antipolo, Laguna de Bay, and Metro Manila.
Twist the norm of cinema date through the classic theatrical contemporary arts. For example the most-awaited multi-arts festival called Fringe Festival where it celebrate the Philippine Arts Month by programming creative hubs with some of the most dynamic interdisciplinary performances and groundbreaking new works in contemporary arts. Enjoy unique talents with your love one where both of you could never forget.
Strengthening your relationship through the roots
For couples who have the olden day dating dream a stroll in the old city around manila can be a winning idea. One idea is the famous ‘kalesa ride’ around the city of Intramuros while looking back at the Spanish era in Manila.
You can also drop by to watch a cultural dance show at Barbara’s Heritage Restaurant while filling up your hunger after the long walk in Intramuros. Best way of introduction to the traditions of Filipino culture. Shows typically last three hours and feature performances by dancers wearing native costumes and dancing to Filipino folk music.
You can also choose Café Juanita, this Kapitolyo mainstay has been serving excellent Pinoy fare for over 20 years now, and it's pretty, ultra-Instagrammable interiors will give your girl enough social media fodder for at least the rest of the day.
Hot Air Balloon Date
Go for Love is in the Air with the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival which will start on 12 until 15 at Clark, Pampanga. With over 32 hot air balloon from all over the world, it sure to amaze you with unique designs and to add to that on Valentine's Day. The event will be ending with a hot air balloon night glow. It can't get more romantic than that!
If your a bit skeptical in going to the air, enjoy a “A Walk To Remember” moment with a stargazing date. Don’t really need to have a telescope to make this possible, PAGASA Observatory. Just call their number and ask if they can accommodate you and if the place is not busy for the night. (Tip: If it’s not busy, ask for the forecast before you go there, you don’t want to go there all excited only to find out no planets are visible and the skies aren’t clear )
Fancy Resto and Dance
Not at the club—we mean real dancing. You don’t have to take classes or hit a salsa club, This coming V-day, surprise her with a romantic dinner & dancing date under the stars at Versailles Garden, located at the 7th floor of Novotel Manila Araneta Center. Enjoy live romantic music. Wonderful meals and lovely set of Pralines to complete a magical night.
