He asked for my Mom's permission to go out on a date and have dinner. I was surprised to learn we were going to Manong's since its hardly the best place to have a romantic dinner which was what I was expecting since he made an effort and all to ask my Mom's permission. Imagine my great surprise to know that we were going to a resto bar and grill.
Now imagine even more my surprise when upon entering the place, the security guard hands me a bouquet of roses. I was like, eh? What's this?
Even better surprise was the table setting below. It was A for EFFORT. Apparently, he went there and talked to the manager to have this all arranged. He then tells me that even the most unromantic place can become romantic with some effort.
Wouldn't you smile?
