Since the uni started, me and Miggy weren’t able to go out as much as we want to. Sadly, our schedules do not meet this semester. He usually finishes uni late and I’m also a working student, so we’re just lucky enough to catch up on facebook everynight for 15-30 minutes. Our “once-i- a-week-deal-date” before becomes once in two weeks! So, when we finally both able to squeeze in some time for each other last week, we really made the most of it!!
If you are a reader of my blog, you know that Miggy and I love to try different cuisines whenever we go out. And this time, we had a taste of Malaysia. He took me to Satay Kingdom Cafe in town and just like most of the asian restos we’ve been to, this resto also offers big servings!!
I had grilled sembal fish (top photo) and he had kung poh chiken (bottom photo). The sembal fish is the bomb! I’ll give this resto a 6/10.
Afterwards, he asked me to go the park and said we we’re going to play a game. So after we ate, we packed our bags and walked for 30 minutes to our favorite park in town. Little did I know, he would surprise me with a bunch of chocolates. Now, how chocolates related with any game you ask…
Here’s a trivia: Miggy and I love the movie, The Vow. We haven’t watched it together though. But I remember talking about this movie with him in one of our fb convos. And from that, we’ve always wanted to do the chocolate game featured in the movie. We planned to do it during the new year, but that never happened until last week. It was fun!
From the park, we walked for about another 30 minutes to go ice skating. It’s our first time to do it together and we both don’t know how to skate!
We barely went far from the railings at the start. But later on, we managed to skate without holding to them. I swear, Miggy was so determine to learn! He’s so cute! This is definitely one for the books. I love how we conquered our fears together! Yiheee cheese!
We headed to his last lecture for that day afterwards. Yes, I lecture crashed! It was Math so I barely understand anything but I found it really interesting. Btw, Miggy’s studying engineering and he’s a math maniac! Such a smarty pants!
Then, we walked down to town again and grabbed some merienda. We went to Strawberry Fare. He always wanted to bring me there, but when we once tried it was closed and doesn’t open until 5 p.m. So this time, we asked permission to our parents if we could go home at around 7 p.m. Yes, permission is required!! Honestly, this was our first time going out beyond 5 p.m. (well aside from his ball last year). And he took me home as he promised to my Pop. Yieee haba ng hair ko! :p
Okay, back to Strawberry Fare!! I learned that this resto was a funeral home before. I seriously didn’t know what to react after hearing that! No wonder they have this kind of interior!
Good thing, they have dainty table setting!!
And I enjoyed their dessert too! We will definitely go back to try more of their menu!
I thought our adventure ended there, but I was wrong!! As we’re walking to the train station, we found that’s it was already past 6! We still have 15 minutes to walk and we’re afraid to miss out the train since we told our parents that we’d be home by 7! Thus, we ran as fast as we could! I thought we’re in the amazing race! He carried my bag together with his bag and his laptop in it! He kept on apologizing and asking me if I was okay. That really moved me and realized how much blessed I am to have him. I swear in that moment, I felt that he would really take care of me for the rest of our lives! Napadasal talaga ako in my head ng Lord, please kami na talaga sana!! haha Thank God, we’re able to catch the train in time! We were sweating!! Nawala talaga ang kinain namin the whole day! haha
The train was too packed! I thought after all the walking and running, we would still stand up throughout the travel and that thought really saddened me because I know we’re both tired. But there’s this one guy who made a way so me and Miggy could sit down. Plus, the train staff charged us with student fare. It’s amazing how God works on our behalf. He knows what we need! I guess that’s our reward!! Napa-God Is Good, All The Time talaga kami duon! :)
About 70% of that day was allotted to walking. It was tiring. Yes. It was exhausting. Yes. But it was definitely an adventure. An adventure to remember. Forever. Just like any relationship, ours is definitely not a walk in the park. I had major issues with trust and he dealt with that wholeheartedly and without complains. I feel really blessed to have a boyfriend who’s always willing to walk beside me whether in good times or in bad.
And you know what, I pray you will also find a guy who will love you the way you wanted to be loved.
To end this, here’s our quick ice skating video:
