I must admit there is some pressure felt when valentines day comes. Eventhough it is only commercially induced, still a certain level of expectation is felt by lovers especially by the woman. Often, the unmet expectations become the source of argument post valentines. I felt that. But the husband is not the type to go all out so... We are not romantic like that but he did gave me flowers and although we didn't eat out at a fancy restaurant, we managed to have dinner together at our currently renovated house in makati along with the workers who are also cousins of mine.
We went there again this time with four of husband's friends. And it must have been a new experience for his friends to be bonding over a massage which is thought to be a girly-girly activity. Hopefully, we were able to convince them to bring their wife along the next time they think of massage.
