If you put things into perspective, 13 years is pretty much how long a student (at least in the Philippines) takes to finish his elementary and secondary studies. Why is it that 13 years seemed like forever when I was still studying and it has just zoomed so fast when it comes to me being in a relationship with Paul? OMG.
Anyways, I have been mentioning on and off here how terrible my backlog is and today I'm going to prove just that. Let me talk about that amazing romantic dinner that Paul and I had... last year. I'm really sorry! I can't believe it took me close to 365 days to tell you all about it. For something this good, I should have went straight to writing about it. Anyway, we were so lucky to be back in Manila to celebrate our 12th anniversary and our friends at Edsa Shangri-la Manila not only treated us to a nice staycation and a relaxing massage at Chi Spa but also to a delicious dinner at Paparazzi.
Prior to the start of our meal, Cath, our friendly server came over with a mobile bar where she made our drink by our tableside. It's a nice fruity mix of lychee and white wine which was very light and suitable for non-alcoholic drinkers like me.
For our mains, we had a choice to go with the Fettucini Verdi (Php. 690) or the Ossobuco (Php. 1,990). We couldn't decide who's getting what so the best solution was to share. We got both main dishes and asked our server to just place it at the middle of the table for sharing. I just love dining out with Paul as he doesn't mind sharing his food with me!
It was a fun and romantic dinner at Paparazzi. Everything was just so good and the service was top notch. Looks like our first visit will be followed by more succeeding visits in the future.
