On Our 6th Year Anniversary

Ours is a love story typical of a movie script — friends who met after how many years, got into a car accident and then realized they can’t live without each other. We may have hurt some people to be with each other, but that’s a decision I’m never, ever going to regret. Choosing you has made my life exhilarating.

I don’t want to be sappy this early in the morning but here are 6 lessons I’ve learned over the years that may help other young couples keep the love alive:

  1. Never sleep on a disagreement. It’s best to pour out your feelings rather than keeping them aside. Open communication is key!
  2. Don’t talk about your partner negatively. Especially in front of his parents, hehe.
  3. Our love language is time. So we see to it that we set breakfast dates or a quick beer run, to have couple time!
  4. Always choose love. There was a time that I thought I couldn’t go on with the relationship anymore. But setting aside pride, anger and jealousy, love will always be there.
  5. I really like it when Bry kisses me good night even when I’m asleep. It’s the small things that make the big impact.
  6. Keep the friendship alive and the passion burning.

To my biggest critic and number 1 supporter, happy anniversary! I love you! 


Anniversary Lunch at Niu by Vikings

Food will always be part of my husband and I’s relationship. So it’s just fitting to indulge in a buffet on our 4th wedding anniversary. Niu by Vikings is located at the 6th level of SM Aura. Its design is more sophisticated and classy than the other branches. I especially liked that the food is situated on one side so you won’t have to go around so much. Just trek the food side and get anything and everything that you want!



For P 1,099 per head, it was very sulit because you’ll have steak, bellychon, Japanese sushi and sashimi, salad, cheeses, desserts and wine buffet! Lunch is from 11:30 – 2:30 so you have ample time to try all the food! My toddler was free of charge but he ate a lot of freshly cooked shrimps and marshmallows!

Chicken Yakitori, Grilled Salmon Belly and Steak Medallion.

If I wasn't pregnant... :P

I’m getting hungry just by recalling the food! I must go back soon for dinner because they serve foie gras!

Servers were very attentive! Plus points for the face mask.

There’s No Place I’d Rather Be…

We’re a thousand miles from comfort, we have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me, there’s no place I’d rather be
I would wait forever, exalted in the scene
As long as I am with you, my heart continues to beat


We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace
Make it everlasting so nothing’s incomplete
It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity
As long as we’re together, there’s no place I’d rather be


*lyrics from Clean Bandit’s Rather Be*

Happy Anniversary My Love! Thank you for never letting me worry about tomorrow because I have you today. Here’s to many more years (and babies!) I love you to infinity and beyond!
