Spell Saab

Since getting married, the one thing Jim and I haven’t gotten used to is making time for “date night.” I think it’s because we both really just enjoy staying home, curling up on the couch to watch a movie. The only time we go out is when Cheats has gigs or if there’s a get together with friends and family. Our parents have been reminding us to set aside one day a week to go out on a date where it’s just the two of us. I understand the importance of this but when your week is packed with gigs and you have to get up early for work the next day, free nights are so tempting to use for staying home and playing DOTA together. Although it’s so much fun killing heroes and trash talking all the jejes in DOTA-world, we agreed that we really should go on more dates outside of our condo.

Jim asked me to free my Monday night last week because he had made reservations for us at 12/10 – a restaurant I’d been wanting to try for months. It was such a nice surprise and I felt like a 17-year-old again when I had 4 outfit changes, anticipating his text that he was on his way to pick me up from work.

My love!!

My love!!

We got to a dimly lit 12/10 with just a handful of people inside. Good idea to go on a Monday night!

We ordered a number of dishes because they only serve small plates. I think it’s perfect for a date. Before the food arrived, we ordered our favorite cocktail: The Old Fashioned.

Old Fashioned -- a cocktail made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding alcohol, such as whiskey or brandy, and a twist of citrus rind

Our plates were served one by one – so we could fully enjoy each dish. And enjoy, we did.

TUNA: kyuri, sriracha, ebiko, panko, nori / Php250

We also ordered the Onigiri which is the closest thing they have to sushi. It’s spicy tuna, foie gras and balsamic maple syrup wrapped in nori. I didn’t get to take a picture of it but I’ll do you one better: WE HAVE A VIDEO REVIEW. Lelz.

As you know I just got my Sony A6000 and I can’t stop using it. It was the first time we used it to take videos that night and I’m really happy with how it captured the audio, I really thought we wouldn’t be heard at all. YAY, SONY!! Wag niyo na pansinin yung lipstick ko ha sobrang di ako nakapag re-apply before shooting the video hahaha wala namang sinabi si Jim!!

Definitely looking forward to more date nights with my love!

12/10 is located at 7635 Guijo St., San Antonio Village, Makati and is open Monday to Saturday, 5pm to 11pm. www.facebook.com/twelvetenph

BTW, I just came home from a meeting with the wonderful people behind Linya-Linya. Look at the super cute shirt they gave me that I think is super apt for this blog post. Hahaha

    At first (reffering to the video), I was like, really this marriage couple is such a weirdo.. But in the end, I prayfully wish to have a relationship close to Isabella-Jim! Ehh! Kakilig. )));

    AWW you guys are so cute hehe it makes me happy whenever I see couples na super happy and nag e-enjoy sa relationship. I think a lot of people can say that they are in a good relationship and that everything is ok, but it’s really different when you see a couple na genuine yung love for each other..may something lang sa way na they look and communicate with each other. So happy for you guys :)

    Hey Saab! Are your Birkenstocks narrow or regular in width? I’m having a hard time looking for a narrow one with the same style as yours :( Know where I can find one?

      Regular lang! I don’t know if they have narrow, you can ask Birkenstock in Megamall, Maxx tells them what she’s looking for and they order it for her.
