Love will be on the air tomorrow. And I am glad that Valentine Day celebration is not only confined among lovers but has become a day of expressing love throughout the world across all cultures, ages, and gender.

It’s a day we express love to our parents, spouse, children, relatives, office mates, and friends. We greet each other Happy Valentine when we meet them. And for special someone, we exert extra efforts to show how much he or she is dearly loved.

Though gift giving is a wonderful feeling, but when it comes in choosing the right gift for the right person, we should choose carefully. And in Zamboanga City, we express it by giving specially arranged flowers, sweet cakes, high spirited wines, yummy chocolates, dining out, a lasting jewelery, relaxing spa massage, and beauty treatments.

Here are suggested precious Valentine gifts from Asia’s Latin City.  For flowers, I do highly recommend Patti Mae Flower Shop across Immaculate Flower Shop. It sells flowers that are not available in other local flower shops. And the arrangement will really swoon a woman’s heart. Flowers are a great way to say I love you.

For variety of wines and chocolates, no one can beat La Tienda. This specialty store got an array of  imported real chocolates and wines that are only available here. Cakes of Myrna’s Bake House are world-class. When you give sweet treats from this multi-awardee bakeshop, it means you really care to give the best.

Dinning out with a special someone or your family? Reserve your table now at Grand Astoria’s Lotus Restaurant for authentic Chinese food,and for dinner cum entertainment go to Park 88 or Kape Zambo. This is the only the day of the year most people go out for dinner. Restaurants are unusually full as early as 6pm.

For lasting gift, heart-shaped pendants, rings and anything with diamonds from Sophia will always be treasured. And for couple who want to distress, the spa treatment of Biocare Spa Center is one place they can relax and enjoy together. And to create a real new look on this day, go to the newly opened Clarity Clinic where physical life has become more beautiful.

Enjoy Love Day tomorrow!
