31 Things Project: Date # 4

B and I went out yesterday. He badly needed a haircut and I took it as an opportunity for us to have some alone time together. Dates # 1 - 3 were all spent with other people and I thought that it would be best to have date # 4 with just the two of us.

We got lucky that we ended up at this new barber shop in our neighborhood. I loved Hairmasters and the concept of their shop. B enjoyed it too.


I'll do another post about the place. After the haircut, we went to Vanilla Cafe which was a few steps away from the barber shop.


We ordered Choco Banana Shake, hazelnut cafe, and walnut banana muffin. Out of the 3 items we had, only the walnut was a hit. The Choco Banana Shake was thin and watery. The Hazelnut coffee tasted really bitter even with 8 spoonfuls of sugar. It was that bad. However, the walnut banana muffin was delicious.


B and I spent time together by talking about his school and his programs. We looked at magazines and eventually, he got bored of talking to me. He chose this. Yes, can you see what he's holding?


After about 30 minutes, we decided that we'd wrap things up. He wanted to go home because he wanted to sleep. LOL. I was that boring a date I guess. Hahahaha.

  10. I wished I had the kind of treatment when I was a kid after getting a great haircut. It looks inspiring to see it and liberating to perhaps experience it.

    Pwede magpapa-haircut din po kasama kayo? hehe

  11. I don't Have kids yet but I have experience with my nephews and nieces. When we go out with them after enjoying a few hours together they will get bored and ask to go home after a while so they can play their online games! ;-(

  13. Bonding between parents and children at any age is very important. Even now that our children are all grown-ups, they still look for days that we are out with them.

  14. It's ok even if he got bored with you. At least he knows that you will always be there if he needs someone to talk to.
