Blé Real Greek Food in BF Homes.

One night, T and I wanted to eat at one of our favorite cheap eats in BF Homes called Gourmet’s. However, it was closed when we got there so I asked him if he was game to try this Greek restaurant called Blé.

All you have to do is purchase their newest macaron flavor... Buttered Popcorn with Salted Caramel.  How cute is that? Movies and popcorn, Mrs. Graham's style!

6 Date Places in Tagaytay for Valentines Day.

Planning your Valentine's date but don't want to be with everyone else in the Metro?  Here are six places T and I have tried in Tagaytay (well, technically they're not all in Tagaytay but you know what I mean) that we think are romantic places you can bring your significant other to:

1. Antonio's
Read my blog post about it: Antonio's Tagaytay

Address: Purok 138, Barangay Neogan, Tagaytay City, Philippines
Contact Numbers: (0917) 899-2866 | (0918) 899-2866
Operating Hours:  Monday (closed) | Tuesday to Sunday (11:00am-1:00pm and 5:30pm-8:00pm)

You can never go wrong with Antonio's.  Pricey, yes, but your date will surely be impressed with the food and the ambiance.

Taste of LA.

Here's another off the beaten path suggestion for Valentine's Day, a restaurant near the Tomas Morato/Timog area called Taste of L.A.  

I'm not usually in Quezon City, as I find anything past Guadalupe bridge already too far for me and beyond my driving skills.  I usually end up in the area only because of work or sometimes a blog event (if I really love or support the brand, restaurant, or PR person).  

I'm sure most of you don't remember this because bad traffic has already become a norm in Metro Manila nowadays but there was this particular day in December 2013 when everyone was stuck in traffic for hours on end.   

And on that fateful day, I was scheduled to attend a press conference on the anniversary of the passage of the Reproductive Health Law in Quezon City.  Not even knowing about the traffic situation, I left the house two and a half hours earlier than the scheduled time but got to my destination after more than five hours of driving.  Yes, FIVE.  And that was already with shortcuts taught to me by T over the phone.

Grateful for the opportunity to work with legal luminary Cong Edcel Lagman on the RH Law.

Swarovski's Fall/Winter 2014 Collection: Facets of Light.

Still hunting for that perfect gift for Valentine's Day?  You can never go wrong with something from Swarovski!  Last year, I was invited by my friend Patty Laurel-Filart to the launch of Swarovski's Fall/Winter Collection called Facets of Light at Rustan's Makati.

Nest Modern Table & Bar in Bonifacio Global City.

If you're looking for a not-the-usual-because-not-everyone-has-been-there date place, check out Nest Modern Table & Bar.  Last November, T and I were invited to have dinner there which was perfect timing since it felt like an extended celebration of our anniversary.

Acacia Hotel's Valentines Special: High On Love.

How time flies.. It's February already!  So my next posts may be Valentines-related.. From possible date places to gifts you can give your significant other.  Take for instance, Acacia Hotel's event on February 13 called High on Love featuring Side A and Jon Santos.
