Geeks and Valentines #2: Date ideas

While most people would want to spend Valentines Day sitting on a couch watching TV or staring at their monitors playing MMO or chatting but that applies to singles. To people with a significant other, Valentine’s is another day that makes saying “I love you” special. I’ve compile some ideas so you can go and plan your date early on to avoid crowds or place your reservations

A day in the Park

It’s old fashioned but many people still enjoy going to amusement/theme parks even on a busy valentines Day, so much that they end up filling these places to the rafters. You might not enjoy being around several thousand people and waiting in line for 30 mins for a single ride but hey, it’s the memories that count. Frequent park visitors will mention Enchanted Kingdom or Star City as these have been around for quite awhile now. Luckily theres 2 more choices for you. One is Global Fun Carnival (beside MoA) and the latest one is Ocean Park Manila (behind Quirino Grandstand).

A day in the movies

If you and your love are movie junkies then a visit to the movie house wouldn’t hurt, Some great movies are lined up of valentine’s Day movie goers like Fool’s Gold and Step Up 2 the Streets. Now if you’re more in to fantasy then YOU shouldn’t miss the The Spiderwick Chronicles. If classics are more your thing, head to your local video rental shop and book the best romantic movie you know.

A day with everyone in love

Started in 2004, the Lovapalooza, was the Philippine’s bid to claim the Guinness World Record for Most Number of Simultaneously Kissing Couples for 10 seconds. Kissing in front of people might not be for shy types but with thousands of couples around you, who’s going to notice? XD

A romantic dinner

For girls out there, the old saying “The stomach is the way to a man’s heart” has been proven true so put on your aprons and start practicing. Of course that’ll work only if you’re a good enough chef or at least better than your man (especially if he’s a frustrated chef like me 😛 ).

Now if you’re planning a dinner date, you might want to take a look at this small list:

A day of Gift (Gadget) Giving

Gift giving is usually associated with the Christmas season but hey, it’s the season of love. Sharing love on Valentines Day can also mean sharing gifts and everyone loves gifts, especially gadgets so why not get a red PSP for your guy and/or a pink ipod for your girl? They’re both very tech savvy and scream of love. While you’re at it, you might want to check out Retrevo. They have an interesting business strategy of Matching People and Electronics.
