June 24: Paper Anniversary

Food trip. These two words summed up our paper anniversary. Tell me, do couples still celebrate the presence of ♥ they have for each other? Do couples still profess to each other and reassure one another that he or she is the OAO reason his or her ♥  beats? I hear a tiny voice inside me that says: Stop being mushy! LOL!

A week before June 24 (our paper anniv, imagine that), I told the BF to bring me to Serendra Piazza in BGC on the special day. Funny as it may sound, it was my very first time to set foot in this posh area in Taguig City. So, we celebrated our paper anniversary with a sumptous dinner at Zao Vietnamese Bistro. True to its name, the resto serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine, athough we both had no way of finding out whether what's authentic or not. Hey November, please come early!

Red equates to the word ♥, right? 

I was a bit impressed with the resto service. Upon placing our orders, our jasmine iced tea was served in less than five minutes.

The bottles of wine across our table

Fresh rolls or Gỏi cuốn (Php 195)- rice paper rolls that include shrimp, herbs, pork, rice vermicelli and other ingredients wrapped up and dipped in nước chấm or peanut sauce

Vietnamese beef stew (Php 345)

Caramelized garlic prawns (Php 395)

For dessert, we headed to Cupcakes by Sonja and ordered Peppermint Patty and Red Velvet Vixen cupcakes. See? It was definitely a food trip.

Seriously, this relationship helped me bring out my mature version. Yep. We took refuge in each other, acting as listening posts for each other's complaints. We often stood in stark contrast to the little humps and bumps we dealt with on a daily basis, and told each other as much. Our first year together illustrates the roles we happily and lovingly played for each other, in addition to perhaps highlighting how diversely we took our wimpy little problems.
