Hi! I owe everyone a belated Valentine's greeting, I hope you all had a love-filled V-Day. ;-D For us, it's twice as much, for we also celebrated my sis-in-law's birthday. They were visiting from abroad. Truth be told, hubby and I are usually avoiding the V-Day rush so we go on for a pre or post date. We have a strong aversion of getting caught in the traffic and parking mayhem. But since we're meeting up with them in Manila, we decided to stay overnight. My son loves hotel living, he calls it fancy living, but my, this is our fourth hotel stay for two weeks. It's suddenly no fun packing and unpacking every time...but I'm not yet complaining, I'm just saying. For the night we decided to try The Legend Villas (post to follow).This was just my third visit to Murray's. The first and second were for a company event, which after finding the food to our liking, we decided to hold a private function thereafter. So far, the Pete's Famous Wings remains to be a compelling reason for a visit. We're recharged before we set off for our dinner date. Se we went on walking, window shopping, and eventually shopping too. ;-D Chase's favorite stores are namely...Patchi, iStudio, JBL, Tempur, and ROX. I have almost the same, just add La Senza. ;-D
Anyhow, good thing we came in earlier at The Fort Bonifacio High Street, at 4pm, the parking was already something. All the walking made us hungry so we decided to grab snacks at Murray's New Orleans.

|Murray's New Orleans Pumpkin Soup. I shared this with Chase. Every so often, Chase and I love to start our meal to a serving of soup. This one doesn't disappoint too.|
|Patchi Philippines at Bonifacio High Street. We enjoyed Patchi so much the last time, that Chase has only the fondest memory of the brand, so he wanted to come inside the beautifully hearty adorned window store.|
|For dinner, we're not in the mood to be adventurous, so we're off to Italianni's Restaurant, our ever reliable and foremost choice #when-family-and-friends-are-visiting dining destination (other than T.G.I.Friday's). This was our 4th visit for the past weeks, so we mostly know what to order by heart. ;-D|
