Kap & I celebrate our 3 anniversaries 2 days apart so it’s often a week-long celebration of our affirmation of love. March 15 is when we got together 29 years ago. March 17 is when we got engaged 6 years into the relationship. And March 19 is when we got married in church 21 years ago.
(right top) 03.15.86 Both of us 16. Love at first sight. And we’ve been together ever since. | (left) 03.17.92 at age 23. Looooooong engagement! | (right bottom) 03.19.94 at age 25. Married finally. Ah, to be young and in love! ;)
Yes, I take celebrating our long ang lasting love story seriously. I mean how many people do you know has lasted this long and are as deeply in love & committed as we are several years down the road? So sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but hey, this is one of my life’s biggest accomplishments so I’m a proud wife. :)
And because Kap & I are a couple of old farts, the most exciting happening for us is a movie & dinner date. We normally go out as a family especially when celebrating. But couples need alone time too, so for one night & one night only, we left the kids and spent a whole day together. Just him & me. And his phone. :P

Of all the Moment Group eatery, I think the only one we haven’t tried yet is CUE MODERN BARBECUE which is ironically their first resto ever.
OMG . Looook up!!! Cow hide!
Cue Modern Barbecue is not just all barbecue. They have other offerings too! WHAT’s NEW!
To start the night, I had a Classic Frozen Margarita while these 2 piggy wiggies watched me drink. I love that they serve popcorn. We didn’t buy popcorn in the cinema thinking we’d get too full for dinner. So this was a most welcome appetizer! <3 A Classic Margarita. Frozen, on the rocks or shaken 235 php. Yummy!
And because it was a night of many celebrations, we needed to make toasts of course! :P Kap’s tall glass of Spice Rub Swizzle 355 php which I had a taste of (and insisted he order so I can haha!). Don Papa, sili, mint, muscovado, lime and a crown of Angostura bitters, served tall. And my 2nd drink, the Pitmaster’s Pick 205 php. Russian Vodka or English Gin martini, Filipino Chili, and Cue’s house brine, olives, and pickles.
Cheers to 29 years of love & togetherness Honey! Thank you for being the best husband & partner for life. <3
