VALENTINE’S: Last Minute Suggestions for a Valentine’s Day Surprise!


Valentine’s Day is a big deal in Manila and this year is quite hectic because it falls on a weekend. Most of the hot restaurants in Manila would be fully booked and it’s getting harder to order roses, chocolates, and Valentine’s gifts.

We usually plan on the last minute. Here are some suggestions that still has availability to help the lovers out there:

1). Where to buy flowers?

Each 1 dozen Ecuador roses

My sister-in-law Tet is a boutique flower entrepreneur and she sells Ecuador Roses for this Valentines Season.
