Patio Vera

On our 5th wedding anniversary, the hubby decided to have a dinner date with me for a little celebration. It is his off day from work and was supposed to do the laundry. It was late in the afternoon when he told me to look for a place where we can have dinner together. I told him that we can have a dinner buffet in SM Megamall specifically in Saisaki/Kamayan where we held the reception for our wedding. He said that the place is not convenient for us since it is out of our way going home. I searched the web and considered Marikina since we just recently went to Lilac street and found that there are lots of promising dinning places there.

I then came across a blog post and was really 'wowed' by the photos of the place and the food as well. I then checked the prices of the food on their menu and without any second thoughts I decided that this is the place. It is located in Marikina, 15- to 20 minutes drive from my work place, and affordable (for a romantic candle-lit dinner).

While waiting for our food to be served, I roamed around the place and took some photos.

Well, hello there :)

The place is romantic and very intimate. It is perfect for family lunch and dinners, date nights with your significant other, or simply with friends.

Our 5th

Ours is not perfect. It may be beyond the understanding of others as to why we are still together and why we are still fighting for 'us.' There is this phrase "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music" perfectly fit for us. Some are asking 'Why are they still making an effort?' Others are wondering why we've decided to keep our marriage and if there are still any reasons for us to stay. I think I know why, it is because they are not hearing the music we are dancing to. Or maybe, simply because we live in an age where everything is disposable and It implies that life has no value and that we can disrespect it whenever we feel like it, marriage included. As long as we are hearing the same music, we will dance and sing to the nature of our song... together. 

Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary to us!! :)
