I hope you had a love-filled Valentine’s weekend, just as I did! I loved how our Valentine’s date went. And boy, did we make the most out of it.
This is a big deal for me because:
1. This was only the second time we had each other only to ourselves on an overnight date ever since Raviv was born. ‘Yung first one, ang jologs pa nung place.
2. Valentine’s Day used to be stressful for us, because February used to be super busy for us. As in sakit pa ng ulo for me because I would reluctantly heed Randy’s request na mag-date naman daw kami (#AkoNa). And after a lunch date somewhere without any reservations, we would rush back to work. Going through the motions lang talaga para hindi masabing wala na kaming romansa sa katawan.
But not this year. Five days to go before Valenrine’s Day, we already had a concrete plan (yes, prepared na kami nang lagay na ‘yan!)
In the afternoon of Friday the 13th, Randy and I dropped Raviv at Gymboree Sta. Rosa then headed to Acacia Hotel in Alabang. We got Acacia Hotel’s Valentine’s staycation package, and we also had tickets to its Valentine’s show. We chose to spend it in Alabang because Randy is allergic to MMDA and traffic. Eh haller, Saturday ang Valentine’s!
We arrived at Acacia Hotel at almost 4 p.m. I loved almost everything about Acacia Hotel, by the way. It’s a big part of why it was such a pleasant Valentine’s weekend.
I can’t help but feel extra special with Acacia Hotel’s little welcoming token, with matching “origami” of a turtle!
Randy and I just had ample time to rest and “be a couple” (wink!) before the pre-Valentine’s show cocktails at 7 p.m.
Katuwa si Randy—he usually is KJ when it comes to selfies and photo ops, but he was game that afternoon!
And then at almost 7 p.m., I changed into my “date” outfit. Here I was:
little black dress: La Copa
bag: Louis Vuitton Alma
Can I just say how much I loved my dress? It’s a little black dress that just hid my love handles, made me look slimmer, and really comfortable. [Read more…]
