Update 2014 February 11: I don’t understand why this is the most read article here. Anyway, do not read this if you’re expecting something like Antonio’s or Vask even. This article is not about taking your loved ones to romantic places or even hidden gemstones in Manila. This article is about taking your SECRET someone to a secret place so they can’t be seen or be heard.
Likewise, for the foreigners out there… these are not tourist spots. You won’t understand this article if you’re not Filipino. Will make one for you guys soon!
Don’t hate me. I’m really mabait. Xoxo- Joem
You are bound to meet someone within a kilometer radius here in Manila. If you’re single and you intend to keep it that way, taking your date to Rockwell for a Chef Jessie Saturday lunch is definitely not an option. You’re single, and we know it. You’re strong, independent minded, crazy, sexy, cool just like Zooey, who we love and adore! Just like a new car, your market value is up when mileage is close to zero.
If you’re taken and you have a reputation to protect, taking number two or four in Serendra is surely a legitimate relationship suicide. You’ll definitely receive a call from your partner requesting for your coordinates. Do prepare a bio-data of the querida when you get home. Don’t lie. Manila has eagle eyes. Why not take them to Antipolo instead? Its got the best Manila view comparable to Skye Lounge, cheap pa!
Bottom line, I always believe that introducing a special someone to friends is tantamount to pamamanhikan. And for sure, that ain’t gonna happen in this lifetime unless you’re the one. It doesn’t mean however that the dating possibilities will be limited to condo dinner and DVD marathons yet again!
For your learnings today, there are still places in Manila that are not as overexposed like Boracay. There are still hidden gemstones for your secret someone because we all know that Greenbelt will always be for the special one AKA your press release, and the hidden gemstones are for your getting to know stage without the high cost.
