The Perfect Chocolates for Heart's Day

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and a lot of people out there are already thinking of how they will spend their Happy Heart's Day with their special someone or perhaps family (who said that valentines is only for couples?). As for me, I prefer celebrating it before or after Valentines for one main reason....I don't like crowded places. When dining out, I prefer quiet and cozy place where I could relax, enjoy the food and have a good time with my man. Going out on Vday is a little bit stressful for me...I know I'm such a bore...boo hoo! But I do enjoy one thing though...Flowers and Chocolates of course, it just brings out the "kilig and super mega huge smile" in me. For the past three years that Sweets and I have been together, I always feel nervous and excited every Valentine's day whenever I hear the doorbell ring, I get pretty excited and nervous at the same time..he never fails to send me flowers or chocolates. It's an old tradition but hey, it always works...no matter how "dry and boring" the person can be.


For those who are busy and have no time to go to shops to buy chocolates, why not try to shop online and have it delivered. I found a shop that offers the same service - Chocolates by Benoit. They offer freshly made, Belgian chocolates made by a Belgian chocolatier - Benoit Nicolay. And they deliver anywhere in the Philippines. Easy right?




How bout you guys, what are your plans this coming Valentines day?


Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home.
Give love to your children, to a wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor.--Mother Teresa




Sweet Day to you All!

  11. Me too, I personally prefer quiet and romantic places for V-day celebration. In this case, we can really feel the essence of a V-day date hehehe..Anyway, whatever way we celebrate it what's important is we spend the time with the very special person in our life.
    Happy Hearts Day to all!
