Tomorrow, Filipinos together with the rest of the world will be celebrating Valentines Day.  It is the one of the most awaited day that being celebrated with fanfare and romance.  According to survey Filipino are the most romantic among Asian people, with 72 percent who said that they religiously celebrated the day of hearts.  Being unaffected by cynicism brought by divorce, most of Filipino especially women still believe in “happily ever after” romance and the magic of Valentines Day.

So, how does Pinoys celebrate Valentines Day?  Here in the Philippines and whichever part of the world, we Filipinos love feasts.  Any occasion could not be labeled as “special occasion” without dancing, singing and food, and Valentines Day is a special occasion to majority of Pinoys and therefore it is “required” to include dancing, singing and food.  Even Filipinos who are living and working abroad take to time celebrate Valentines Day with dancing, singing and food.
Filipinos usually make a big fuss about Valentine’s Day it seems like a mortal sin if you don’t celebrate this day like the rest; with flowers, cakes, going to the movies, concert, romantic dinner (or a hotel room reservation) and little red hearts hanging over your heads.   If you’re here in Philippines, your Valentines Day celebration would depend on much your budget can stretch.  If you have some budget to spare you might go to romantic Valentine’s concert and have a romantic dinner afterwards.  If the money is tight you could always enjoy the free Valentines party at Luneta with lots of singing and dancing, all you have to provide is your own food to complete the “special occasion” ensemble.

If you don’t want crowd, Tagaytay is always a great place to be romantic and if you don’t to travel you could always hang-out at Bay Walk in Roxas Boulevard.  Just remember Valentine’s Day should not only be for overs. But a precious time to remember the people whom we love and care: our families, relatives and friends who make our life easier and better.   Wherever part of the world you are now, PinoyGigs would like to greet you a very happy valentines day.
Happy Valentines Day NoyPi!
