5. Create new memories together

Feeling a little adventurous? Go ice skating or bowling at SM Mall of Asia. Love arcade games? Spend the whole day playing at Timezone. And if you’re feeling a little too romantic, long walks at the bay area while watching the famous Manila sunset isn’t bad, too!

Whatever it is that you want to do, remember that Valentine’s Day should be more than just going to a fancy restaurant and giving flowers, chocolates, and gifts. What’s even sweeter is to do special things for your loved one that he/she will remember everyday – and all that while saving up!
