Gayuma Ni Maria: Post Valentines Date


February 20, 2013

If you and your partner have been together for a few years now, one of the things you should have learned by now is that Valentines Day is just another day. You don’t have to squeeze yourselves in the jam-packed malls and restaurants, because you know you could always have your date tomorrow, or next week or maybe next month. And it’s all the same.

So last year, we celebrated it about a week later, to make sure restaurants are cleared already. We don’t even want to consider it a Valentine’s Date. It was just our usual date. Being the girl who likes to try new things, I suggested for us to try Gayuma Ni Maria. I’ve heard it before and seen it in television, and so I wanted to try it myself.

So after my shift, we headed straight from The Fort to Maginhawa. It was around 9:00 in the morning and there was no one dining in when we arrived. So we technically own the place.

I instantly fell in love with the place. The ambience was very cozy. It was a good place to have a date with their special someone.

We choose a little private location in the room. Ta-da…


Our private corner

Once we were seated, we checked on the menu. I was amazed at the witty names of the food. I can’t choose what to order.

We went for the Please Be Careful With My Heart, Unrequited Love and Broken Promises (I cannot remember exactly what we ordered. So I googled the full menu, and yeah, I think that was it.)

While waiting…

After eating, I explored the place further.

We played scrabble outside, to kill time. And I wrote my wish letter and hung it on the wishing tree.

Then it’s time to go home.
