Happy Anniversary: Berto and Kwala

That's our reflection on the window, ATTEMPTING to form a heart. =)

21 years ago, Berto and I became boyfriend and girlfriend. We were graduating high school students, both active in C.A.T.. Although we basically lived in the same community and were schoolmates since second year high school, we really became close while training in the C.A.T. (Citizen's Army Training for the young ones who have no idea what I'm talking about).

We had our church wedding in May of 2001, but we actually celebrate our December anniversary more. I don't really know why. Force of habit perhaps? More memories? I'm not sure, we just do.

This year, we really didn't have anything grand planned. We usually just go out for dinner and a movie. A usual date. But this year is different.

We decided to make it really memorable. We really wanted to go to Ilocos, we didn't have enough time to prepare. We ended up choosing a staycation in a hotel in Manila over a road trip plus hotel stay somewhere in the north. Will do a blog post for that.

Berto and I really believe in the concept of investing in your relationship. It doesn't always have to be expensive vacations and fine-dining restaurant dates, for us it just means consciously setting aside time for just the two of us.

It was really refreshing, after a week of rushing 4 album layouts and barely sleeping! Haha.

Happy anniversary hunny!
