Traditional “panunuyo” (persuasion in English) of Filipinos are one of a kind. During this time, when the lady hasn’t accepted the man’s confession yet (still courtship stage), one must fetch water from a well, chop logs for cooking, help the family in farming, sing in front of the window in the evening, bring fruits to the family and make the family like you.
This generation, however, many have changed, many gents are still befriending and asking permission from the parents of their partner/lover before making the move. From generation to generation, ways of showing and confessing love differ but one is constant – the amount of love poured.
Valentine’s day in the Philippines is actually one of the most awaited and premeditated occasions. Planning what to buy as a gift is considered based on the favourite colours, scents, and design . The gift should be meaningful as well!
Checking places to go for valentine’s day, reserving the table, talking to the staff for a sweet serenade, or even a surprise message. I bet all will agree if I were to say that Filipinos are one of the most romantic partners in the world, romanticists indeed. Their way of showing love and affection towards their special someone is something that will make you love your partner even more.
Even the terms of endearment are well thought out, it should be unique – mahal, irog, sinta, evol, life, ga, darling, giliw, liyag, and many more.
In preparation, the couple is already booked into their favourite destinations at least a week before the fourteenth of February.
Here are the best places you can choose from if you’re planning to celebrate your Valentine’s Day in the Philippines.
