for this year’s anniversary, lui and i decided on staying in manila – as compared to last year where we headed off to laoag and vigan. there were basically two reasons behind the decision:
1. both of us have just started work and it might look bad if we both take leaves. pa-impress stage pa kasi kami hehe.
2. we’re saving up our leaves for the BIG trip in november. we’re planning to head off to OZ so we need all the $$$ and leaves we can get 🙂
but, out of town or not, yesterday has proven to be a really really romantic day for both of us.
we had dinner reservations at aubergine. it turned out to be great in spite of my anxiety towards fine-dining. :p the place was great, not really hard to find. the ambiance was great. and the food was amazing!!! my tummy was an inch away from exploding. exquisite food. impeccable presentation. terrific service. i loved it!!!
(i especially loved the wagyu beef, although i was only able to eat 2-3 strips because i was sooo full.)
the food was well-cooked. the salmon was perfect. so tender inside. the wagyu beef was just the way i liked it – medium well 🙂
after the scrumptious dinner, we headed home. it was a great night indeed. but it didn’t end there.
as soon as i got to our room, i was surprised by a huge bouquet of flowers waiting in our bed 😀
and finally, lui capped off the day with THE gift 😀
