My husband and I had our pre-valentine date last night. Yup, I’d like to call it that way. He leaves for Bahrain on the 10th, that is next week and because of that we won’t be able to celebrate the Valentine’s Day together.

I rushed home from work yesterday and spoke with the girls that Dada & I are going out without them. Freshened up and headed out to dinner. Β I was thinking to have a light meal for both of us over at Wimpy’s before we head on to my plan, a movie date. But he said that he hasn’t eaten pork sisig since he came so we ended up in Cocolime right after we purchased our cinema tickets just to make sure we won’t miss our seats.

In 30 minutes, we were done with our supposed to be light dinner. He was not happy with the pork sisig so we decided to have it taken out and went back to the main gate and approached the bridge where we have seen an old lady on our way in begging for money, and gave the take-out to her instead.

The movie starts at 8:30pm and we were in before that. Bought ourselves a popcorn, one butter and cheese flavor and made a deal that we will only finish half of each and give each to our girls. But that didn’t happen ‘coz he finished his so we only brought home what was left from mine. As soon as the movie started, he asked me Our 3rd movie in 12 years?” And I said “You remembered it right, huh?”

Imagine, we had been together that longΒ alreadyΒ and yet we never really had the time to even watch movies at the cinema together. Too bad the movie was just 2 thumps up for us. But never mind, what important was we had a good time together. In fact, we even clicked photos goofing around at the restaurant.

Our pre-valentine date did not end there, we had one round of Tanduay Ice at home when he said “The movie was bad, but the evening was nice, thanks Mahal! I have not been out like this for a long time.”

Next movie to be shown next week is “The Vow” and I plan to ask him out again before he goes. Enough to fill another year before we see each other again. How’s that?
