Way before the Valentine's day, hubby and i were talking about how we are going to spend it. I was supposed to tell him to just spend it after the day itself, but to my surprise, he wanted to spend it on the day itself. According to him, it is really different when it is celebrated on the exact day, the ambience, the people, love is everywhere and in the air! ❤️❤️❤️❤️..... so 14 is the day! Our plan? Well, we both decided to have dinner after work in House of Wagyu in Eastwood. Yup, we wanted to try this intriguing "wagyu" steak, what makes it so expensive and of course just the thrill of eating the steak stone-grilled! After so many deliberation, we both agreed to check the place in advance, make reservations and plan ahead so it will not take us too long to locate the restaurant. We were too excited when we arrived in Eastwood, and eventually found our way to the place - nearest parking: check; oooppppps, we were intimidated on the look of the restaurant, it was very quiet and there was just 1 table occupied, the rest were all empty. So what happened? Hahahaha!!! We both decided not to make reservations and just go straight to the restaurant for our V-day dinner date. Fast forward....on the 14th itself, both of us were too eager and excited for our dinner date as we prepared for the day. We went to work, we were too hyper to complete the day's work and then came the surprise.......my boss (who also happened to be our wedding ninang) approached me around lunchtime and asked me if we already have plans for the day, guess what? I was speechless and motionless, i was caught by her question! Then she handed me 2tickets for a dinner buffet with concert in a club near in my workplace! Well, of course she noticed how my expression went blank. She just mentioned if we made plans then i can just offer it to any of my colleagues. Anyway, i took the tickets and thanked her. I immediately sent a message to hubby, part of me wants to try it and part of me wants to pursue our long-awaited plan. Ending???? We gave it a try, anyway, nothing beats free tickets!
Call me whatever you want to call me but i really have no idea who Mulatto was! Curiosity struck us, we went to the place an hour in advance (told you it is just near in my workplace), thus, we got a good parking! We did the registration, since it was a last minute give away tickets, we did not have any reservations so we ended up on a table near the stage but very far from the buffet table. Most of the people who arrived early were really not of our age group, hubby and i just laughed it off and just told ourselves, for the experience's sake and the raffle's sake, never mind the crowd! Though they were really people from the high society (the club itself is an exclusive for members club and is not open for public, thus, not just the ordinary people like us!). Slowly, another couple came (am sure without reservation too!) and guess what? - young couple, younger than us! Hahahaha!!! Thought it was great! It was just a little awkward, in as much as i wanted to release my "friendliest side", they just don't seem interested to even start a conversation so, i just content myself with the enthusiasm on how the dinner will be and the concert will go. Several minutes again, another couple occupied our table (of six) and they look young too (even found them newly married) and on the contrary of the other couple in our table, they were both so cheerful and friendly! As we all broke the ice, we found out that all our tickets were all give-away tickets (they got theirs from their parents who apparently are the club members who can't make it to the dinner concert).
The dinner went well and mulatto's performance was really superb! Mulatto was a band, they were lounge performers. I enjoyed all the music they performed and i just had so much fun! Not to mention the handsome date i had that night which truly made it more special.
Our date may not be the one that we planned but it was the best unplanned date i had! Wagyu can wait! Hehehehe.... Hello march and perhaps my birth month - april!
