VALENTINE’S DAY is fast approaching and it is that time of the year again when all the roses and chocolates make their way to center stage. Those who are celebrating Valentine’s Day are usually scrambling to think of last-minute date ideas to do with their significant other. Well, fear no more because the Flame got you covered with a few fun ideas to do on Feb. 14.
Go on a picnic
Enjoy the February breeze and lay a blanket on one of the many parks the city has to offer. There is no doubt that a yummy and intimate picnic combined with the ambiance of being under a tree, while overlooking the sunset will capture that romantic moment that will surely be remembered.
Get on the road
Hop in the car and get out of town for the day! There are a lot of beautiful destinations right outside the city that are perfect for a romantic getaway. Visit the beautiful Taal Volcano in Tagaytay; go swimming in the beaches of Batangas; or visit a water park in Pampanga. These places will not only be a lot of fun, but they will surely make for a memorable date.
Chill at home
For those who are looking for a budget-friendly date and a nice laid-back activity with loved ones, why leave the comforts of home? Order some pizza, eat chocolate, watch a romance film (or any film that you like), bring out some board games, and unleash one’s inner laziness to a relaxed date while enjoying being at home.
Go to a themed restaurant
Going out to eat dinner may be pretty common, but why not change it up a bit. Explore the city and dine to your not so usual go-to places. For animal lovers, dog and cat cafes have become popular these days. There are also restaurants in the city that feature different themes like well-known films, board games, or those that showcase artsy ambiance. A change of scenery from your usual carinderia and fast food chain will surely be an amazing date experience.
Unleash your inner kid-at-heart
Why not go on a mini-field trip to different places in the city offering experiences that will take you back to childhood? Going on a date to places like a ball pit room, trampoline park, a museum, or escape rooms are sure to create memorable experiences that will be loads of fun. F
