As I mentioned in my last blog post, nung Valentines day eh pumunta kami ni Gregory sa Crazy Katsu.
We went to several places before ending up here.
Kamusta naman, super dami ng mga tao at puno lahat ng mga restaurant. Muntik pa akong mang away ng tao dahil shushunga shunga siya.
Anyway, the food was okay.
The thing is, I thought this place would serve a huge variety of Japanese food. Hindi pala.
They didn't have sushi which or tempura. It would have been perfect na sana.
If you guys wanna try it, it's in Maginhawa street, a block of two away from Serenitea. :)

Valentines day comes but once a year, they say.
Its the time of the year when love is in the air. Roses, chocolates, stuffed toys everywhere and I find it weird that people celebrate love only once a year.
Gregory and I didn't have a big celebration or anything. For one, every restaurant we went to was either fully booked or jam packed. We ended up eating in a place called Crazy Katsu which is located in Maginhawa Street.
For me, all that matters was that I was with him. It was just like any other date night we had.
I didn't really need chocolates or gifts or anything to remind me that it was a special day. I don't see things that way. Every time I'm with him, it's special.
While driving around Maginhawa looking for a place to eat, I saw couples everywhere and most of them were carrying flowers, bears, chocolates, or all of the above.
In my mind I'm thinking, 'Really? It's only today that you make your partner feel special or loved?'.
A friend of mine once asked me, 'Since you and Gregory have been dating for almost a year, do you still feel happy and in love everyday?'
My answer was simple but honest.
'Not all-day-everyday. But yeah, everyday.'
Very Charlotte from Sex and the City.
But that's what I feel. Gregory and I have our little arguments and spats but it's nothing we can't sit down and talk about.
I don't need one day of the year to remind him that I love him.
I have 365 days to do that.
I don't have to wait every 14th of February to tell or show him how much he means to me.
I can do that everyday.
Others wait for a year to celebrate their love.
Others wait for a year to surprise or give gifts to their significant other.
Because having Gregory in my life, everyday becomes Valentines day :)

I was going through some photo albums on Facebook.
They weren't even mine.
Most of them were from people who were on my friends list and some who were not but since they were gracious enough not to lock down the security on their pages, their albums were on display for the world to see.
I was reminded of the past. Some of these people, I am still friends with but most of them, I'm not.
These were people who became a big part of my life but ended up hurting me.These are people I called friends but in the end, I felt like I was bamboozled by these people who I trusted.
With everything that's going on in my life, some things are moving too fast and going through those photos, I was reminded of a time when things were much more simple for me. A time when I only had to worry about trivial things.
Those photos reminded me of the things I had to do to become who I am today. I had to learn how to numb myself and put up a wall.
I admit, it came to a point when I wished harm to fall upon them.
Because of these people, I learned the importance of indifference.
And in a world where you are surrounded by people who could potentially use you for their own personal gain, indifference is worse than hate.
At this point, I consider them as fragments of a past I no longer cling to. But every now and then, the past comes back and knocks on my door to remind me of who I was before, who I am now and who I plan to be in the future.
And now as I reminisce the past, I ask myself, of everything I did to be who I am now, do I regret anything?
The answer is, no.
Gregory and I celebrated our monthsarry a few days ago. I don't really blog about our monthsarries but this time I felt the need to.
I told him to leave work early because I'll prepare dinner at home.
I made my Basil Tuna Mushroom pasta which he seems to love so much.
He bought a cake from Conti's which was actually really good. He said that he wanted to get Sansrival because it's my favorite cake but he couldn't find any so he got me the next best thing, chocolate.
So there we were in the dining area having dinner when I saw a brown baggie at the end of the table bear the cake. I asked him what it was.
"Secret. That's for later." he answered.
After dinner, he opened the brown paper bag and inside it was a scrapbook.
He said that he made this back in December and was planning to give it to me as a Christmas gift but he ended up buying me an iPad case.
It's so cute. Apparently, I'm the one with spiky hair.
For obvious reasons I could not yet show what's inside it but it's filled with pictures of us. Most of them from our trips. Some of the pictures, I didn't even know existed. It was my first time seeing them.
I was surprised and touched. No one has ever made me a scrapbook. The time and effort he put in to make this just makes my heart melt.
Gregory, thank you so much for the gift, I love it.
The small things you do make me love you more and you never cease to find ways to take my breath away.
I love you so much, my bunny :)

I swear, this video just brings tears to my eyes and makes my heart melt.
The amount of love in that room is just unbelievable.
"While I'm not legally able to call you my husband, I want you to know that from today, to me, you are my husband. You are the most generous, kind, beautiful person that I have ever met. Everyday I feel so lucky that you chose me and if there's only one thing that you'll remember from today, it is that no matter what happens, good or bad, I love you for the rest of my life." - Clinton
Watch the video and if you don't get moved or feel a rush of overflowing love even just a little bit, then you are either dead inside, the Pope, or Michelle Bachmann.
Around the first week of January, I received a box of cupcakes from one of Gregory's friends. Boyfriend daw niya ang gumawa.
There were 6 cupcakes in a blue box with a piece of ribbon tied around it. Ganda ng presentation, in fairness.
Since my stomach took over, I forgot to take pictures of any of the cupcakes before devouring them. Good thing, they had photos on their Facebook page. So I grabbed photos of the ones that were included in the box.
Here's what the rainbow cupcake looks like once you've bitten into it. It's so gay and soooo good!
They were so pretty that I was afraid to eat them. When I took out the Rainbow cupcake from the box, I stared at it for 10 minutes because it was so pretty.
They all tasted heavenly by the way. The cream cheese frosting was to die for and the cupcakes were moist even after I refrigerated them.
The Rainbow and Red Velvet were my favorite.
Ask any of my friends, I'm not very fond of sweets but these cupcakes, I absolutely loved.
I highly recommend them.
If you wanna see more pictures and the other delicious flavors they have, you can check their Facebook page, Cupcakes and more by Kayo and Kaye.
Price varies depending on what flavor you get but for a box of 6, I think it ranges from Php 270-300. Not bad, it's pretty cheap considering these damn things taste really good.
