Pearl Anniversary, our 30th! Lobby Lounge Luxe

I am the posh to Kap’s ultra rugged. The luxe to his downright simplicity. Even 30 years back, the first time our hearts met in high school, he knew I was going to be a handful (and probably bleed him dry) hahaha. :P And yet, he still pursued me. #habanghair Ganyang ang true love. <3

O pag-ibig, ‘pag na’sok sa puso nino man, hahamakin ang lahat masunod ka lamang. From Florante at Laura -Francisco Baltazar.

Old photographs & memories. Tumo-throwback to when we were both 16. Seems like a lifetime ago. Since 1986 -to infinity & beyond. Happy 30th today Honey! <3 So I guess it wasn’t just puppy love huh? Grabe, lakas parin ng crush ko sayo! #soulmates

So for our 30th anniversary, he took me someplace nice & romantic for a change, with matching harana espesyal. Kasi puro daw ako reklamo sa mga pinagdadadala nya sa akin! :) He took me to an Afternoon Tea at the Lobby Lounge Luxe of Makati Shangri-La Manila for an afternoon delight!

So timely. It’s our 30th, and pearl is the traditional gift for 3 decades of celebration! If this doesn’t make it any more obvious to Kap on what to get me for our anniversary, I don’t know what will! :P

Thank you for the harana, Honey! Akala ko naman nung sinabi mong haharanahin mo ako, sariling sikap, lol. Orchestra pala, nakalibre ka pa! ;))

How timely that Makati Shangri-La Manila just reinvented its afternoon tea at TheLobby Lounge Luxe featuring a jewelry tea box especially designed in collaboration with Jewelmer. A Pearl, if you don’t know it yet, is the stone associated with 30th anniversaries, So just like me & him, our date (with a BIG HINT on a very nice anniversary gift) was meant to be, walang kawala si Kap my Kap! ;)

I am OKAY with any of the above, Honey. Honestly, kahit ano jan -ok ako. Just remember, the bigger the better. The more the merrier. And the more chances of you getting lucky -not just one night, but EVERY NIGHT! Until the next occasion hehe. ;P

I love that the afternoon tea at the Lobby Lounge Luxe is a mixture of sweets & savouries. <3 Sweet & salty, just like Kap & me. :)

Because summer came in full blast, we both opted for cold tea. Refreshing, with a side of honey. Kasi kailangan laging sweet.

From puppy love, to true love, to my one & only love. We’ve come a long way, Honey. Here’s to another 30+30+30 more years. I love you always & forever! :-* Thank you for being my everything.
