I’ve been trying to come up with something romantic to do for Valentines day. I guess I’m going to have to rely on just me. Funds are low, I’ll probably have to tap into savings this month just to meet required expenses, mostly to eat. We spent a little more than budgeted when I went for an overnight stay in Cebu City.
Still I want to do something for Jessie, now my getting out of the house is really hard to do, that is without her following me. She thinks I’m going to get into trouble or get lost. It doesn’t mater that I’m 50 years old have been striking out on my own since the age of two. Or so my mother tells me.
Maybe some folks, especially those familiar with Bogo City can give me some ideas. I’ve got one but I’ll keep that to myself in case Jessie reads this.
I’d also love to hear from people about how Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the Philippines. Perhaps there is no difference, perhaps there is.
What I really want to do is take her to Bantayan Island for the day and the night but that’s going to cost too much money I fear. I fear that it could cost us $100 but I’m starting to feel like I’m going to do it anyway.
My required trip out of the country is coming up and I just do not feel comfortable spending money until I have about twice what that should cost.
So with that limitation in place, are there people out there that can help me with my Philippine Valentines Day?
