My Purple Valentine. :)

For the past three years, Valentines Day saw me dating another man. And he looks like a carbon copy of my husband.

My handsome date. ;)
I'm talking about my son, of course! (Were you thinking about Lee Jun Ki? LOL.) And he was more than happy to fill in for his Daddy this year, because he gets to pick the place where we'll be dating.

Donning my favorite color. :)
Of course, I was not surprised with the little man's restaurant of choice.

Homaygad. Cheeeeeeeese!
Because he wanted another Happy Meal toy, and some caramel sundae for dessert.

What the fudge! :)

Not Pikachu!
I was actually thinking along the line of fine dining restaurants, like Aristocrat or Max's. But my resolve is no match for the power of Pokemons and french fries.

I am secretly pining for Max's Lumpiang Sariwa. LOL!
Oh well, for as long as he's happy, then I'm good.
At least he got me a Valentine present - in collaboration with his Dad.

Ube Cake from Red Ribbon.
It's no Tous les Jours, but boy, was I surprised with how good Red Ribbon Ube Cakes are after all.

Sprinkled with ube goodness.
No wonder the older folks love 'em. They're light and fluffy, oozing with ube goodness, but not sickeningly sweet.

Best of all, it comes in my favorite color. This is purple yam, after all. :)

that made you a "cougar"...jokeness. sooo love his hair, too, and that, smile...will melt hearts in more years to come:)

PS: i feel the same way, too when the kids get to choose which resto to eat. instead, i would dream that the cheeseburger and the fries i am eating were the gourmet foodies that passed by my smell:)
