Sweet Ecstasy (Sweet X Manila) Burgers.

One morning, on the way to work, T told me that we should list places we want to go to and make a day out of it.

"It doesn't have to be expensive or new," he said, "just something we both are interested in seeing or trying."

To be honest, I was pretty surprised to hear this from T.  Not that he doesn't like doing this but it's just that I'm usually the one with a list of places I want to go to.  I guess he noticed that I have been feeling 'blah' for quite a while now.  I had a break from that feeling when I went to Hong Kong in June and the US in July but it came back with a vengeance late last year.  

Unfortunately, it has even affected my blogging.  Like I always say, my blog is my diary.  I write about the things that interest me and about the stuff I love doing.  But the last few months, my posts have been sporadic and... different.

I think T noticed this as well and that's why he told me to make that list.  I thought we would start it next week but before I went down the car, T told me that he would take me somewhere after work.  That actually made my day and I couldn't wait until dinnertime.

When T picked me up later that day, I didn't ask where we were going because I wanted it to be a surprise.  T drove to Makati until we stopped at this place called Sweet Ecstasy or more commonly known as Sweet X Manila.

Rita's Italian Ice Custard Now in Manila!

After lunch at Hot Star (read my blog post about Hot Star Katipunan), we left for Greenhills because T had a basketball game.  But since we were still early, we went to Vira Mall to try Rita's.

Hot Star Chicken in Katipunan.

When Hot Star Chicken first opened in Bluebay Walk, I wanted to try it with my colleagues but plans didn't push through.  One day, I tagged along with T when he checked out their Look See PH sunglasses in Sole Academy Katipunan and saw a Hot Star Chicken branch nearby!

Nobu Restaurant Opens in City of Dreams Manila.

I promised T a birthday treat to Nobu Restaurant, but as usual, things got a bit hectic over the holidays up to until February so I only got to schedule dinner last week.   Actually, that week was a bit busy too but I know that if we don't push through, we won't be able to do it anymore.
