Hey, loves! How have you been? If you were so engrossed with work or other stressful activities that you were not able to celebrate Valentine’s Day, don’t worry because LOVE MONTH isn’t over yet! There is no excuse if you really want to do it, you just have to find time and make it happen. Feel free to read here for some Valentine activities— just to give you some ideas and inspiration ❤️ In this post, I am sharing my new normal Valentine celebration with Hubby. If you are from Antipolo or Metro Manila, you might consider to visit these places.
My Valentine Look
Well, since this was just a casual dinner and not fine dining, I just dolled up for a casual look. I just wore a black top with heart prints (P244) , black skorts (P305), black sandals with pink ribbon (P369), and red face mask. This is to compliment the yellow and white decorations at Yellow Lantern Cafe. I didn’t put make up too because after dinner, we will have o spa date, so it will be useless if I did.
Valentine Dinner 🥘 at Yellow Lantern Cafe
Since I vowed to myself that I will be more practical this year— I started to explore other places which are family friendly and affordable as well. I just opted to book for our Valentine dinner in a nearby restaurant with an overlooking view, so Yellow Lantern Cafe, which is located in Sumulong Highway is the perfect choice. I have featured them in 2018I didn’t regret booking it and we have really enjoyed our romantic dinner. We loved the ambiance, accommodating staff, delectable food, and the view of the sunset.
Here’s what we have ordered:
📌 muticolored nacho chips with cheese spread and dip.
Umaapaw in Paellera Regular P350 (traditional paella served in Filipino style)
📌 It has bagoong rice, topped with dilis, scrambled eggs, salted duck eggs (itlog na maalat, eggplants, onions, and mangga).
📌 They serve it with homemade spiced vinegar and chili garlic. They also serve it with kalamansi.
Battered Chicken Fingers with Potato Wedges P395
Chocnut Cheesecake P185
📌 (their signature dessert) This is of course cheesecake combined with my childhood fave CHOCNUT 🍫 or peanut butter chocolate. I’m sure the millenials are not really familiar with this, but this is our local version of Reeses.
DRINKS 🍹 🍷
Watermelon Fruitshake P185
Vanilla Caramel Graham Fraffe P185
We didn’t eat that much because we will head to the spa after dinner. We were surprised that they have generous servings for an affordable price. We even have takeout food to share with my dad and kids at home. 🥡
Guess what? Hubby (a.k.a Pepito— my sidekick/photographer often complains about everything) was very satisfied with our dinner date and he even suggested that we come back to celebrate our daughter’s birthday there in April. Hmm, I have other plans though for that, but we will definitely come back!
I highly recommend YELLOW LANTERN— this is a must-visit plave when you are in Antipolo.

Couple’s Massage at Soulscape Spa Marcos Highway
I also booked for the Pure Bliss for Couples Package at Soulscape Spa Marcos Highway. I also featured them in 2017-2018 and honestly, it’s one of my favorite spas because it is clean, classy, and they offer the best spa treatments. The treatment is P2,099 (60 minutes Anti-stress massage & 30 minutes hand and foot reflex). The package includes use of VIP room 2, which comes with your own restroom. I wanted to give Hubby the gift of relaxation because lately, he is kinda stressed with work, so after our Valentine dinner, it was time to destress and relax.
We started with the sauna 🧖♀️ for 15 minutes then we took a shower 🧼 before the massage. It was indeed very relaxing— I’m glad Hubby enjoyed it as well.
Will there be a next time? Hmm… as much as I want to, it’s more convenient for me to have a spa time @ Nexus, but I will definitely visit again some other time.
Overall, we had a meaningful and intimate time together and it was undoubtedly better and less expensive than our Valentine celebration last year.
